I have been so busy with appointments that I just haven't had time to blog. So much is going on in our house right now, life is rather crazy here and I just haven't felt like writing lately.

Volume 283
Thank you Joyce! 

1. What would you say is the best and worst thing about moving house?

Packing up and getting rid of the things you don't need is the worst. Best thing is unpacking and setting up your new surroundings. 

2. What's moved you recently?

3. Do you feel your life is moving forward, backward, or is on hold? How so?

All of the I said at the top, life is crazy here right now! I'll share when I can. 

4. On the move, move mountainsget a move onit's your move, or bust a move...which phrase best applies to some aspect of your life right now? Explain.

I'm going with 'get a move on' because I am waiting to get an approval and a call for a gel injection for my knee so I can bust a move! 

5. What song makes you want to get up and move?

I'm going to go with "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. I use it as my alarm and it always makes me feel good. 

6. Your favorite snack to grab when you're 'on the move'?

I usually grab a health food bar when I leave the house in case I get hungry. 

7. What one accessory makes your house feel like home?

That's a hard question. I'm going to go with my collection of tins on top of our cabinets in the kitchen. I have been collecting them for years and they have traveled with us into every home we have had. 

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Too funny about your random thought, I am the same. That is sad about that young police officer. Life can be crazy for sure. Hope it settles down a bit.

he he he me to on the earrings. it is the only thing that fits. that story of the young mother broke my heart when I saw it on TV.. my life is static right now, no movement at all.. and I like it that way. I love moving but have never moved while this OLD so maybe not now.

What a sad story about the police officer. I moved from So Cal and my facebook was full of this story.

What is in the gel shot? Just gel or other things? How does it work?

Cranberry Morning said...

I hope you can get relief from knee pain. How long is the gel supposed to help? I like the Blue Lives Matter poster. I don't know why we seem to think that any one group of people matters more than another.

I like your kitchen decor, Debby. Very homey!

Prayers for that officer's family. I hope someday her daughter will look at this image and feel her mother's love.

Joyce said...

The story of the officer was so sad. Such a mixed up world we're living in these days. Hope you're doing okay and life settles down soon. And your insurance approval comes through!

A very sad story about the police officer. I hope you life calms down a bit...I hope your knee gets better so you can take your Christmas ornaments out and decorate your trees!

i like your tins. :) i hope things settle down for you soon.

Ann said...

I have a collection of bird houses on top of my kitchen cupboards. That cartoon cracks me up. I can still fit in to my high school earrings

Nonnie said...

I have old tins on top of my cabinets, too. I'm sorry you're going through so much right now. I understand how that goes, but pray you get some relief soon. I could wear my earrings if I wanted too, but ... That is a very sad story about that police officer. It is just sickening and I am so sorry that our police forces are under so much stress and danger right now.

Great post! I totally understand about so many things crowding out the time for blogging-I've had the same issue.
Have a great Thursday.

Carla from The River said...

My boys best friends dad is a Wisconsin State Trooper ... what is going on makes us so scared for him. Milwaukee has become crazy with hate.

Sending a big HUG for your knee my friend.

Wendy said...

Love the earrings quote - that works for me. Sorry things are not great for you right now. Hope they settle down soon and you get approval for the knee gel.

Empty Nester said...

Hahaha! I still fit into my earrings from high school too! :) Hopefully, all that's going on is good stuff. Happy is a good song to motivate moving!

David McClendon said...

Funny, I can't still fit into the earrings I wore in high school. LOL. Have a great weekend.

Suzanne McClendon said...

I'm sorry that you haven't been feeling well. I hope that the gel for your knee will be approved very soon. Just don't overdo it when you go to bust a move. :)

You have a beautiful kitchen. We have a few decorative tins here on a shelf just above my computer. One is Hershey's, one is Kool-Aid. I can't remember what the other two are from and I can't reach them from here.

Have a blessed weekend. You're in my prayers.

Mildred said...

I hope you get approval for the injection for your knee. I love that song "Happy" too. What a pretty kitchen and tin collection you have. Hope you feel better and have a pleasant weekend.

Theresa said...

I opened the comments in a new tab and am able to comment :) I think I did something to my laptop that is causing this problem. Your kitchen is so nice and I love the tins. I think my earrings are the only thing I can fit in from high school! Hope your injection helps your knee quickly. Have a great weekend.

Vee said...

Lots to be happy about here and one thing that breaks our collective hearts. Had not heard this terrible news about the slain officers, one a young mother. It has to be bad when a blog is one's source of current events. =\
