Warm Heart Wednesday

First there was Alphabe-Thursday, then Saturday Census, now Warm Heart Wednesday, how could I not be a part of the beginning.  Ha!  In these troubled times both personally and in the world, this makes perfect sense. (Although Jenny- I still miss Saturday Census lol).

 Last Thursday, my friend Magellan and I ended up at Panera Bread. We sat at a table that was in front of a little fire place.  I had a cup of chicken noodle soup and a half a grilled cheese sandwich.

What could warm a heart more then a fire, comfort food and a good friend.

Check out other Warm Heart Wednesday's at Jenny Matlock.

The Voice-moving on

I think I've said this before but every season they seem to add a new dimension to the Voice.  This time it was bringing back a contestant which at first I thought was good until I didn't.  It pretty much seemed like they didn't have a chance to be voted through or picked by the coach. 

While I'm complaining, I really don't like either in the blinds, knockouts that they don't show all the contestants singing that get on the show. They do some montages which would be fine but why can't they at least show their performances in total online?  Doesn't make sense.

What's with cutting half the teams last night?  I think that's too many to cut at one time.  Is it my imagination or does it seem like they are trying to shorten the season. It seems - rush rush to me.

In any case, I only voted online I didn't buy any ITunes.  I only voted for 3 from each coach.  I voted through 8 out of the 12 left.  It may even be 9 because one team I only remembered one for sure that I voted for, ha!

I still overall like the show but I am getting somewhat disenchanted with it.  I know, 1st world problem, who cares lol.

The Voice

Well, this is the first night of the live performances, the second tomorrow. We'll get to see who stays on Wednesday but my prediction is unless something terrible happens, I'm pretty sure Jordan Smith is going to win from Adam's team.  I just got that feeling the same way I did last time with Sawyer Fredrick, ha!  He does have an amazing voice though.

Yo Ho!

So, we had 51 kids come for Halloween.  I remember when son was little we had so many more come to the door.  Although, a lot of people on our street don't give out candy anymore, it's really quite sad.

My spirits were lifted when a pirate ship came along behind a mom and her young child.

It was so cool.  I asked if I could take a picture, lol.  I told the dad he was a good dad (I didn't think at the time but I hope he was the dad.)

What's been happening

1. Hippie's birthday was last week.  He turned 69, wow.  He's an old man, ha.

2. My birthday is this week.  I'll be 64.  I'm getting kinda old too. 

3.  Next birthday, I'll be getting Medicare.  OMG!!! How did that happen?

4.  In September,  I decided to get Amazon Prime.  There was an offer for $67 for the first year instead of the $99 (or whatever the normal price is) so I thought why not.  I've been wanting to try it.

5.  After I signed up, I bought a fit bit.  I haven't started using it yet.  Hopefully, soon.

6.  I was talking to hippie about buying myself a Kindle Fire for Christmas.  He suggested since it was going to be my birthday, I should buy it for that.  He didn't have to say it twice.  I now own a kindle.  I've set it up but haven't used it that much yet.  I still love my Ipad but it's running out of room.  Thus, the kindle.  I think with the stuff I bought, I should be on my way to paying off the $67 with the shipping costs I'm not having to make.

7.  It's been very cold here.  This weekend we went down into the 30's at night.  During the day today it was only in the mid 40's.

8.  I'm still kinda iffy about Facebook.

9.  A couple of weeks ago, some of the Dinner Friends went to the memorial for hospice that we bought the brick for our friend that died last year from kidney cancer.  The brick turned out wonderful.

10.  This year has just kind of flew by.  Once Halloween comes, it will be a rush to the holidays.  With their school schedules and their new cats, I'm not sure son and daughter-in-law will come home for Thanksgiving.  We'll see.  It depends on if they can get someone to come in for the cats.  Hopefully, that won't be an issue with Christmas.
