Peak Of The Week- 4-24-19

It's spring and It's the Peak Of The Week!! 
Here are some things piquing my interest this week!!

This week is the hardest week of the year for me personally!! It marks the worst week of my life. The whole month of April is a hard month leading up to this last week which is painful!! April 26th is my anniversary with my late husband. It would have been 33 years this year!! We were only given 26. April 29 is the anniversary of his passing. I know it's coming. I try to prepare, but I have found that the preparation of facing the day of psyching myself up for it ends up being worse than the actual day. I'll be with my mom and sister this weekend. That's nice and it will just be a good time. We will talk of what was and dream of what is to come just like we always do!!

With that said, I haven't felt at all like writing. I missed my Poetry Tuesday yesterday because I just couldn't find the strength to write and share what I wanted to share- a song. I'll share it at the end of this post!! It's my favorite!!


Chicagoland Independent Bookstore Day 2019 Field Trip-  My daughter lives in Chicago. I want to do this field trip with her sometime. She will love it as much as I do!!

How to Track Down Hard To Find, Out of Print Editions- More books!! My father has a pretty extensive collection of "hard to find" books- mostly about Texas!! I want to remember these websites. I still believe a book is always the best gift to give someone!!! You share so much more than just a story when you share a book. You share an experience, and opinion, a life in most cases!!

20 Home Organization Hacks- This list incredible!! I have big goals for complete organization!! Hopefully, I'll remember these when it comes to these individual jobs.


As an Amazon Affiliate, I make a profit when you buy from my links


Contact Paper Finds- I have been looking for shelf paper for my shelves and drawers!! I found this link on a blog that I follow. There are several cute prints and good prices!!




Why the Mueller Report Has Two Spaces After Every Sentence --Not double spacing after periods was new to me. I learned not to do it when I was asked to submit a post about myself for the Design Mom Blog. We learn that is wasn't a young staffer who typed up these findings. It was someone my age or older!!! Who Knew!!! Technology is the great divide I guess!!!


Judith Viorst has never been happier- I love Judith Viorst!! I shared one of her poems last week for my Poetry Tuesday poem and Instagram and Facebook. I have given her books of poetry on aging as gifts to many friends. I was able to give her Unexpectedly Eighty to my mother for her 80th birthday!
My favorite is How did I get to be forty and other Atrocities.



I just ordered her book, Necessary Losses!!

I'm sharing what I should have shared for Poetry Tuesday yesterday!! Only you die-hard readers who always read my posts will know what it is. This song is my favorite song!! It was the first song sung and my late husband's memorial service. It is what I strive for in my life!!


The words inspire me every time I hear them!! 
"Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering 
Though there's pain in the offering 
Blessed be Your name"

Will I praise Him as much in the bad times as I do in the good? 
I hope you've enjoyed your Peak  Of The Week!!! It's all downhill from here!!!
