Anyone have plans for President's Day? I'm working. The boys are off. Maybe I'll find a new recipe to cook.

I'm British, but I'll be doing some much needed tidying up! Due to a somewhat nasty back injury three weeks ago, I've been unable to undertake some vacuuming of the house! Plus I'll start writing that dragon novel!
Asha Moonfall - Plotting Book! - Sadly, I pretty much slept the day away. I guess I needed to catch up on my sleep. I did a load of laundry but forgot to put it in the dryer before I left for work. Sigh..... It will still be there when I get home. I also did a load of dishes. So much for my holiday. I guess it's a short work week for me. I've pretty much got the rest of the week off, but I've got physical therapy appts., taxman visit, Dental cleaning, annual women's check up, bowling leagues... and Hubby's birthday. I'm pooped.
Need some entries for the Valentine's Madlib contest:

Just wanted to share: I busted my Busy Bee Butt last week to earn these. Some were easier than others! Trust me. And it was a challenge because I worked Day watch hours on Valentines and then I had busy day doing household errands on Thursday. Plus Bowling league. BUT -- I feel like I really accomplished something and that's a great Bee feeling!

Nice one Steph! Plus the 7 Day reward MBs are a good way to make sure you log on to WDC everyday!
Way to go!! That's pretty awesome!!
Thank you Secret Valentine for the CNote. It was full of heart! *BigSmile*
We're thinking about getting a "new" truck for us. It's time. The DH (Dear Husband) has a 2008 Ford F150 with over 200K miles. And it's President's Day sales!! haha. We have 2 possibles:

2022 Toyota Tacoma with 5K miles!! for 14K or a 2020 Toyota Tundra with 77K miles for 36K! Going to look tomorrow!

Good luck!

If the Tacoma is large enough for your needs, choose that one. Tacomas are amazing. But not as a family hauler. The backseat is like a 1980s Corolla. If you plan to take people in the backseat, it's going to have to be the Tundra.
Annette Thanks for the head's up!
Busy as a bee today. Working day watch today and doing admin stuff. Del taco fish tacos do in a pinch but they don’t taste all that great.

I bet you get some great tasting fish & Chips this Friday!!! *Bigsmile*

A little birdie told me! *Twitter*

*Witch*
Ԝ€ß☆ԜiʈCH Yep! I'm heading off to Fish Fy in about 5 mins and I'm starving!!!
StephBee - Enjoy!!!
Any else here go bowling?

A little bit.

Ever shoot darts? I was on a league, which were all female. I still have some pins from that.

I bowled in a mixed league for almost 20 years until I hurt my knee six years ago. My Dad bowled in at least four leagues each week, including a traveling league. I think Mom took up bowling just to see him in the evenings. *Rolleyes* I was the only one (in a family of six) that never learned how to throw a hook. But it was fun!

Well, I've kind of grown into a die-hard bowler. haha. I'm on 3 leagues! Big ball, not candlepins.

My 1st league is "Twilight 4's" on Tuesday nights at 630 pm and it's a mixed league with 4 peeps.

My 2nd league is "Breakfast Club" on Thursday mornings at 10 and it's ladies only.

My 3rd League is "Our Gang" which is a Vegas league Friday mornings at 10 and it's mixed, 3 ppl a team.

I'm about a 140/150 average bowler but 3 leagues is a lot!! Come summer I think I'm going to downsize. I joined the Vegas league to go to Vegas but these ppl take it way tooooo seriously!
As you can tell, I'm trying to earn that 7 days posting on the newsfeed Merit Badge. *Bigsmile*

Valentine's is around the corner? Any plans? Take it or leave it?

Valentine's is low key in my house. The oldest boy is off at Sonoma State. I'm just getting cards for my husband and youngest and some chocolate. The dog will get an extra treat. We might go out to eat. We'll see.

I have a family member having surgery so just being supportive.
Valentine's Day has a nice story about St. Valentine, but it's kind of a non-holiday if you're out of school The hospitals and doctor offices over-decorate for it. This year, it's also Ash Wednesday, so many people will be going to church Feb. 14.
Pumpkin - Ooooo Ashy Valetine Hearts! *HeartBL* *Heartbroken*

Congratulations, Miss Steph!

It's great for the emphasis and support the Staff places on reviewing--it's such a help for writers.
Congrats
I'm a sucker for a good cup of coffee. What's your favorite brew? I'm currently drinking Warpath coffee. It's a local Mom & Pop made in Wyoming.

Please don't hate me - I don't like the taste of coffee: however, I love the smell of it. While in college, I made coffee every morning just to wake up with the smell and gave the pot of coffee to my friend next door.
Beacon's Lighthouse Starbucks is very strong for me, but I'll drink it from time to time. I don't drink it as much as I used, too as I've been exploring other brands.

R.E. Pete I'll check it out.

~MysticMoon~aka SilverMoon I haven't used instant in a long time. (I'll take it along when I've gone camping with the Boy Scouts, but that chapter has recently ended). While I haven't tried plant butter, I usually add Honey to my coffee. I found "Benson's Honey Farm" out of Nebraska and LOVE it.

Chariot to the Heavens You know, I got a WDC sweatshirt, but I never got the coffee mug from WDC. I might have to invest!

staiNed Black. That's a serious coffee drinker.

J.R. PETE I totally get you about the smell of coffee. Some people won't drink it, but it's not officially the morning until they smell coffee.
StephBee - most instant coffee doesn't taste very good but I do like Juan Valdez. I use to use Folgers too but prefer Juan Valdez. Even Walmart had it. Since I use very little it's not too strong. I can't drink Starbucks. It definitely is too strong for my body. Unless it's Via Instant Blonde roast. And again I use less..
