Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my blog anniversary! I have to say, I’m feeling a little lame today since after 14 years of blogging I can’t come up with three things that go together for Three On Thursday. Or maybe it’s because of 14 years of blogging. Yep. That must be it. In any case, today is a random three-fer.
- As part of my daily tasks at the library I catalog the magazines we receive. I enjoy doing this because I like to see the pretty covers and I like having the chance to flip through and see what the latest celebrity gossip is (People), the newest fashion (Vogue), and the best home ideas (Good Housekeeping). One thing that makes me absolutely crazy though? There is zero consistency among magazines as to where they put the publication information. And I need that information in order to enter the magazine into our software. Some magazines put it on the spine. Some put it on the cover. Some put it on the title page. Some put it on the back page. Some (I’m looking at you, Men’s Health) put it somewhere different every.single.month. Should I ever rule the world you can bet that consistent publication information for magazines is going to be at the top of the list of things I make happen.
- I’m thinking about Super Bowl food. Our living room is small so we’re only having Doreen & Mark and Jo-Ann & Shawn over for the game which means I don’t need a ton of food but still . . . it’s the Super Bowl and the Pats are playing. (I know. You hate us.) The plan is to gather in the afternoon for pregame snacking and drinking so most of the food we eat will be before the game even starts. I’m thinking these chicken wings for snacking and then venison chili with corn bread for . . . dinner . . . except it’s not really dinner but you know what I mean. I’m open to suggestions, though, if you can think of something fab I should be making.
- I am so happy that today is the last day of January because man alive but this month feels like it has lasted forever. You would think it would feel like it passed quickly since we had holidays and a long weekend but I think it’s just such a letdown after Christmas and it’s cold (super cold today although not as extreme for us as other places!) and I’m ready for spring. I know that’s ridiculous but it’s true. Actually, it’s not true at all. If I’m being completely honest I’d just as soon skip spring and go right to summer. You know those lovely June days that are warm and the evening seems to last forever? Yeah. Let’s do that now. No? Okay then I’ll just look forward to February. There’s vacation (I don’t know yet where we are going but it will be a short-ish local-ish getaway) and there’s Valentine’s Day and at the absolute end of the month I’m heading to New York City with Jo-Ann to see Hamilton. So yeah. Buh bye January and helllllllo February.
And that’s my random thoughts for this week. If you wrote a post for today please include your link below and thanks for joining in!
