Peak of the Week 6-3-20



What a week it has been. I know you are all exhausted with the sadness that we see in our country right now!! I'm trying to stay off social media as much as possible, but it is a way of life for me to connect with others and so I can't completely look away!! 

It is Wednesday, the Peak of the Week, so that means I'm sharing things piquing my interest right now! I hope you find them intriguing as well!!

BSF Kids- Bible Study Fellowship has a Youtube channel now!! If you have grandkids visiting or staying with you, you may want to subscribe to this channel. There are very many videos up yet, but keep checking back!!

I saw this on Facebook and thought it would be great to hang in a classroom. If you struggle with remembering the difference maybe print this out and put it near your screen. I don't like to critique peoples' grammar online. I have made so many mistakes over the years whether they be verbal typos, typos, or just not really thinking at the time. I think this is a great reminder!!!


21 Vinaigrette Recipes- It's salad season! Try one of these vinaigrettes and let me know what you think!!

Anti-Racism Resources- This is a great resource!! We all need to educate ourselves on this matter. Hopefully, you can find a starting place here!!


Segregation Along Highway Lines- I pledged on my Instagram and Facebook accounts on Sunday that I am going to educate myself about systemic racism in this country. I had no idea that our highway system was sometimes used in segregation. If you google this topic many articles come up. I liked this one because it is an educational thesis from a graduate program. It is factual without dispute. 

Light and Tripod
It can be ordered HERE.
Someone asked me yesterday about my tripod that I use for blogging and to get family pictures when we all want to be in the shot. This is a good price at just over $100.00, and it has held up well.

Iron Fish- I am still suffering from low iron. I heard about these iron fish on a podcast recently. I'm trying to be creative with different ways to get iron back into my body. Besides cooking in a cast-iron skillet, I've been boiling my water with these fish to give myself a little extra!!

It can be purchased HERE.

How to snooze someone on Facebook. I've SNOOZED some people on Facebook this week. I love these people, but don't love what they are sharing right now. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but some people are sharing articles and are not reading them. They are simply sharing a Headline that fits their narrative. Those kinds of actions really bother me!!! Click HERE to learn how to SNOOZE someone. Their posts will not appear on your feed for 30 days. It might save a friendship!!


What I'm Reading- The Matchmaker by Elin Hildebrand 
                                You'll Get Through This by Max Lucado

                                  Pandemic on Amazon- We just finished this. 
                                  Lot's of trash TV!!

What I'm focusing on- Just finished organizing our closet. It is a fairly small closet so I think I have 
                                     some solutions. I'm working on a post about it!!

What's piquing your interest today? I'd love to hear!!

Peak of the Week- 5-13-20


Well, there really isn't anything new in my life. I feel like I'm slowly coming back into life though. It was such a weird time right at the beginning of quarantine. I had to have my routine bloodwork done this morning. It had to be fasting bloodwork so afterward, I stopped by Starbucks for a coffee. It made me feel so normal to get that coffee in my hand!! What have you done for the first time since quarantine that made you feel a little bit normal again!!



It is Happy Wednesday- The Peak of the Week!! Here are some things Piquing my interest this week!

The Loft- Big Sale- 80% off of some of their clothes in a Warehouse sale. Check it out!!

Hamilton to be streamed- Hallelujah!! I love Hamilton. It will be streamed on Disney+ on July 3rd.




Father and son charged in the killing of black Georgia jogger, Ahmaud Arbery. I'm keeping my eye on this outrageous case. I just don't understand!! I ran earlier in the week and posted pictures with the #irunwithmaud and #irunwithahmaud.  If you do anything in the awareness of this case be sure to use the hashtags. We all need to keep this case in the spotlight.



Back to the Future- Reunited- Josh Gad is bringing a smile to our faces in his Reunited Apart series on Youtube. Episode 2 brings together Back to the Future!!  So Good!!

Best Banana Bread- I have made more Banana Nut Bread in the past 2 months than I have in the past 10 years!! I love this recipe. It is delicious and so moist!!



What I'm Reading- Get Out of Your Head by Jennie Allen
                                You'll Get Through This by Max Lucado
                                 Me by Elton John
These are my most read right now. I've just started each of them. I guess it's a good thing I have a lot of time on my hands!!

What I'm Watching- We always watch The Voice so We have been watching how creative everyone has to be to sing their songs from home!!

What I'm focusing on- Our closet has been emptied of all of its content!! And, that said content is all over the house. Dr. T has installed shelving at the top of the closet which was just lost space. He is now adding a shoe shelving unit that he has created for me. Hopefully, the project will be completed this weekend. I can't wait to show you what I've found to help with organization.

Not much going on here!! I'd love to hear what's piquing your interest!
