What’s Up Wednesday #7

Wednesday greetings to everyone! How was your day? Today was mostly  overcast and rainy here in sweet Trinidad and Tobago.  Hope the weather wherever you are was better.

Let me share what I’ve been up to these days. 🙂

What I’m eating this week:

I had a late lunch today.  We ordered BBQ wings, Cheesy Bread sticks, Tuscani Chicken Alfredo Pasta and a large Santa Fe (Beef and Pineapple) Pizza from Pizza Hut.  I enjoyed each bite and you can believe that I had a little of everything on my plate. 🙂

What I’m reminiscing about: 

The days when I did not or rather could not drive myself around.  It was the job of the taxi or maxi driver to get me where I needed to be.  It could be very tiring having to drive yourself and everyone else where they need to be all the time.  I am however, very grateful that I do have my car because it allows me the freedom to go where I want, when I want.  🙂

What I’m loving:

This week in Summer camp we made some really neat craft items with  the kids. We made bookmarks and paper flowers.  We even decorated a glass and re-purposed it as a vase and even made a paper bag hanging decoration.

What I’ve been up to:

              

Bookmarks                                    Decorated glasses with paper flowers

                

Before/ After Plain White Paper Bag Hanging Decorations

I’ve been busy assisting with craft activities.  All of these ideas were inspired by some amazing YouTubers but we have added a few elements of our own.  I really liked how they all turned out.    We have two more weeks of camp and both the kids and I look forward to doing more activities. 🙂

What I’m dreading:

Errands, errands and more errands.  The next few weeks aside from making craft with the kids and entertaining them every so often I have my own personal checklist of things to get done over the next few weeks.

Right now, I’m trying not to look directly at it – because it is so intimidating at the moment.  That by the way, is not working because my brain is still trying to play out how best to get it all done. 🙁

What I’m working on:

Getting my finances in order!  Have you ever been so comfortable with everything that you just take it for granted that things would always be like that.  I did and I paid big time. Thankfully, after what seemed like forever things are starting to look up. 🙂

What I’m excited about:

I’m excited about getting to relax, enjoy a change of scenery and eat delicious food (not prepared by me). 🙂

What I’m watching:

It’s more like what have I watched recently.  I’ve recently seen Transformers – The Last Knight (interesting story line), Cars 3, The Mummy with Tom Cruise (definitely different from all the other Mummy movies done before) and Despicable Me 3 (interesting spin).

Overall, I enjoyed all four movies. If you have seen any of these movies you can feel free to share your thoughts on it without giving away too much to spoil it for the others who have not seen them yet.

Who/ What I’m listening to:

I’ll be honest with you, I have a mild headache so I’m here sipping some tea and trying to keep things as quiet as can be.  The only noise I am hearing is that from my fingers on the keyboard.

What I’m wearing/ Let’s Go Shopping:

Today I visited Macy’s website and here are a few things that caught my eye. 🙂

What I’m doing this weekend:

I’m not sure yet what or where I’ll end up but I’m sure my family has a lot planned for me. I’ll just prepare my mind and body to go with the flow.

What I’m looking forward to the next month:

I’m looking forward to a much slower and definitely less hectic month.  A month filled with fun, laughter, good food and wonderful memories.  🙂

What else is new?

Unfortunately, not much right now but who knows what amazing revelations the future has in store for me.  🙂

That’s a wrap for now until next week.  Make the most of each day even when it may not be going the way you like.  A simple change in your attitude or perspective can make a big difference.

Thanks for stopping by.
