Morning Meanderings… Things In My Mind And Now On The Blog


Good morning!  😀  Hope Thursday finds everybody well!  We are so close to the weekend that I can smell it!  😀  It is looking to be shaping up to another gorgeous day here in Minnesota and I am wishing I had time to play in it, but alas, no… I will have to wait until tomorrow.

I currently feel like I have a lot of irons in the fire (I know… odd saying, but there it is).

This morning I am basking in the quiet lull before my day takes off… but my mind is still tossing through to do’s like playing cards… (I don’t know what is with the metaphor’s, just smile and nod…. )  😛


Today I took the day off from work to help Connie with her first dinner and silent auction combo for Camp Benedict.  We will be setting up the place this afternoon, I will be helping her set up the auction, and prepare whatever she needs…. I am at her disposal. The actual event starts at 5 pm tonight with a social hour and then movies on to a dinner, and program.  I believe it ends between 8:30 and 9 pm. 

My to do’s building in my head are related and also not to this event:

  • get nails done if there is time
  • put an address on that package in the car that I forgot to label (after I open it to see what it is and who I was sending it too *sigh*
  • I have a little more prep work for a class that starts Sunday – do I go in to work tomorrow for a bit, if so when?
  • I want new cards for BEA this year, what does that look like?  Can I incorporate my new header?
  • I must register today for the Iron Man bike ride before Amy has my head on a platter.
  • I need to (want to) ride bike this weekend… I hope the weather cooperate so I can do the ride around Mile Lacs Lake on Sunday with the team
  • I need to write that review today, this morning.
  • DO I take a change of clothes with me tonight, and change later or do I just wear what I am going to wear for the day?
  • WHY did I eat that really yummy MAGNUM ice cream bar last night?
  • What should I get Al for supper so he has something in house with me gone tonight?
  • DO I have enough audio in the car for the ride to and from the event tonight.
  • Should I take a book with me in case we are done with set up early… (and also, DUH – of course I will take a book!) and then, uhhhh…. which one?


Anyhoo…. thats my head. 

I am really excited for today and so thankful I am finally feeling better after two days of headaches, I think maybe sinuses?  I look forward to having a great time for a great cause. 😀

  1. My mind goes like that all the time, even when I”m in bed – no wonder I don’t sleep well. Have a great day and a great weekend.

  2. Ha-ha…I like the one about having to open the unlabeled package…and my mind gallops along like that, too, when I’m planning something or going somewhere.


    Hope you enjoy the event…and smell some flowers along the way.

    • When I went to the post office a couple days ago Laurel I was grabbing packages and realized I bundled one up and did not address it. GAH. Now I have to open it to see what it is to find out who it goes too 😀

  3. My mind was doing the same thing last night! I almost had a panic attack. I hope you’re able to get everything done.

  4. Just thought I would pop in and tell you I picked up Wintergirls from the library and am hooked. Intense!

  5. I’m glad I didn’t read your list earlier in the day. It would have clashed with the one in my head this morning! LOL I have now resigned myself to list-making. Not sure if that’s a result of overloaded brain or old(er) age.

  6. Glad to hear I’m not the only one with a thousand things constantly running thru my head! Hope the day ran smoothly!

    • It did! 😀 Actually it is funny – my day has been so long that I had to go look at this post again and seen that I did write it this morning… LOL…

  7. I’m glad you’re feeling better and I hope the auction went well! This week has been one of my busiest in a while and I was reflecting on it all and thinking to myself a little while ago that I’m having a “Sheila” week. 🙂

    • Thank you Alyce, it did go well 😀 LOL abotu the Sheila week… know that they pass… and much veging and blogging will commence soon 😀

  8. I’m coming to this post late, but I just have to comment…IS “a lot of irons in the fire” an odd saying? It makes perfect sense to me. But then, I had a Fred Astaire obsession in my childhood, so I grew up listening to him sing about putting all his eggs in one basket, because too many irons in the fire is worse than not having any. I guess I can’t judge whether it’s a strange saying, I heard it too much. Funny the things that work into our brains and become part of our mental landscape!
