Pay it Forward – Mark Your Calendars

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

Paying it forward is is something that we want to start in the new year of 2015. You know the old saying of, “Do onto others as you want them to do onto you?”  Well, let’s put it in action in 2015.  Every month on the first Wednesday of the month, we are hosting Pay it Forward with my friends from Nikitaland.

Paying it forward is simple.  You do something for someone out of the blue, not asking for anything in return just because you can.  It’s little things that count. Karma comes around for all of us.

Here are a few examples:

Pay for the person behind you at a drive thru – could be as simple as a cup of coffee or breakfast.

Help someone take their groceries to their car at the grocery store.

Give extra as a tip to your waiter/waitress.

Visit a elderly neighbor and spend some time with them.  Read to them or bring them lunch.  Listen to them as they talk.

Pay for the person behind you at a toll booth.

Put money in a parking space for someone whose time is getting close to expiring.

Make a donation.

Cook lunch or dinner for a neighbor in need. 

Offer to babysit for free to a couple who needs a night out.

See, it’s the little things that count that make the most.  Just being there for someone to see their smile can bring great karma your way.  So in the new year of 2015 – let’s Pay it Forward.

You have an entire month to Pay it Forward.  Do little things.  We will meet back here on my blog on May 1, 2015 to post about what we have done and how we have touched someones life in 2015.  I hope this inspires you my friends ❤

Score for the Piggy!

Score for me!  The Easter bun-bun didn’t forget about my love for peeps.  The Easter bun-bun brought me not necessarily a “Peep” product but something similar and look at it – it’s shaped like something I know but I can’t put my snout on it – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

It’s a piggy vanilla marshmallow like peep thing.  I was so thrilled to have found it in the bottom of my big bucket.  And trust me my friends.  It was delicious!  Of course, I ate it’s head off first.  What?  Mom was holding his feet – snorts.

And yes – I ate the whole thing.  Daddy couldn’t understand why I was running around the Hotel Thompson afterwards.  Maybe it was all of that sugar sweet daddy of mine.  Snorts – thankfully there wasn’t anyone else here when I devoured my little friend.  Have you ever seen anything so cute?  Squeals!

Update on Renovation 

Just an update my friends on the renovation hell project here at the Hotel Thompson.  Today marks 11 more days until completion.  I say GET IT DONE ALREADY – snorts.  No really, mom/dad worked on decluttering and purging *all* weekend long.  I have to say, those two put some elbow grease into the destruction remodeling. What do they say, “It always looks the worse before it gets better.”  I sincerely hope so.

This weekend they worked on the closet of the known. You know that closet my friends. The one that you don’t dare open in fear of everything falling out on top of you.  It was three hours of “oh look what I found” – snorts.  Among the things that were found were:

2 boxes of clothes that mom brought to the house when she moved in 16 years ago! 😳

2 deep sea fishing rods and reels – Moby Dick you are safe. 

Moms high top Mickey Mouse sneakers from high school. 

Dads stereo equipment. 

Moms pearls that went missing a couple of years back. Don’t ask how they got into the closet. God only knows. 

Mom/dad worked hard on that closet and the rest of the cleaning this weekend. I’m glad to report that after many trips to Goodwill to drop off donations and many bags of trash later, the house is coming together. There was a couple of added things to be done during this renovation and I’ll keep you posted. As it stands right now, the time table still looks good.
