Magnificent Monday Means More Motivation!

Last Update: January 17, 2022

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

It was a bit chilly when I awoke and climbed out from under the blankets to get on the computer for my routine Wealthy Affiliate Community visit!

Kitty seemed a bit surly when she finally joined me in this morning endeavor!

Truth be told, she did not come to bed with me last night, and only showed up some time in the wee hours of the morning! Well, better late than never, as the old saying goes!

I took a break early since the platform seemed to be having issues when I tried to get back in! Did anyone else experience this?

I captured this image outside! (in addition to the title image!)

We were only experiencing high 20s in the temperature range! (Fahrenheit, of course). At least the sun was out, which was a very good thing!

The next daily task in the absence of any money work was to perform some more Wealthy Affiliate research, which I did outside the platform, since it must have been experiencing some upgrades or something earlier in the morning!

At least I managed to get it done!

I had to leave shortly after to go pay a bill in the drop box since city offices were closed today because of MLK day!

The drive over was pleasant enough! When I finished dropping the bill in the slot, I took an image of a church and other building located next to city hall!

Then it was on over to the shop house!

The day was shaping up to be a very nice one, indeed! I took a picture of the sun in the trees right after I took this one!

While I was there, I did some more sorting of locks and tools. This was something that I have been procrastinating about!

I was over there for a little longer than an hour! When I departed, I took a picture of the clear blue sky over the field where I usually get my sunset pictures from! I used to own a large portion of that field, but I sold it over ten years ago!

The drive back to the eBay house was also nice! I snapped a blurred image of the sun on the drive back--not really blurred, but mostly because of my streaky windshield glass!

When I pulled into the driveway of the eBay house, I captured an image of the oak tree in the back yard! I thought it was cool!

I worked on the computer some more for about an hour since the platform seemed to be up again!

For a late lunch, I had the rest of my spaghetti that I prepared last night!


When I finished that, I went to the back yard to continue packing trash into the can, along with salvaging some items out of the temporary garage which had its canvas roof shredded by the vicious wind storm from December 15th of last year!

While I was out there, since the temperature had risen to 60 degrees Fahrenheit, I also opened the garage and started my motorcycle, letting it run for about 10 minutes, while I worked on the other project!

I would have loved to have gone for a ride, but I had a lot of small projects in the back that I was working on, and they had to take precedence! (Maybe next time!)

I also walked around to the front and caught a quick image of the sun setting behind the neighboring house!

The rest of the evening will be spent on the computer, and likely on a phone call or two, as well, besides anything else which might tickle my fancy!

Here is another blast from the Blog Dog past until Monica furnishes me with some more new pictures!

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE HERE IN WEALTHY AFFILIATE HAS GOITTEN THEIR NEW WEEK OFF TO A VERY EXECLLENT START!

Accept those things we can not change.

Hopefully, the white stuff will pass you by, Nick! I'm keeping as warm as I can with my experimental heat sources, Nick! I'm pretty encouraged by the results!

Haha, I was a sea scout and we chucked our scout master in the water in the middle of a deep channel, fully expecting he could swim. You know sea scout, scout master…Nup..lol. We had to save him from drowning. Luckily he taught us how to do that. True story.
I left soon after, lol.

Great pics as always. The one of your lock store reminds me of the inside of my head. So much procrastination. I think most of us suffer to some degree 😕.
You still seemed to have a productive day, so well done 👏.

Thanks, Anne! We don't necessarily procrastinate, we simply get overwhlemed! I have a lot more inventory to consolidate over there, but I am never bored! There is always something to do, repair, or make better!

I hope you are having an excellent week, my friend!

I was plagued with that, today, Anne.
I did everything BUT my to-do list.

I still can’t get over how wide your streets are. I’m used to touching mirrors as we pass. The High Street in our city, the main street, was made one way Because it was too narrow for two way traffic.
And left over spaghetti Jeff, it always tastes better the next day for breakfast or drizzled over a baked potato.
Tuesday is here, let’s hope it is not Terrible Tuesday with the site up and down again.

We have a few narrow streets, but not many, Bux!

I'll have to try that leftover spaghetti over a baked potato! Great idea! A spaghetti loaded bake potato, and they say we can't learn things from this vibrant community!

Yes, I hope Tuesday doesn't have site issues again, either!

Have a good one, and we'll talk later!

Dave, One of my first awareness from my London trip, was almost getting hit by a Double-Decker Bus!
I learned then to Look to the right, then the left, before crossing to street, Dave;)

Tonight I had a sliced cold meatball sandwich. I didn't feel like cooking, and I already had my macaroni and cheese, Bro. Pretty good stuff!

The famous routemaster buses. This catches Brits out when they go to Europe. Glad you beat the bus.

That sounds ok Barb. No point in cooking all the time and I hate wasting food with a vengeance. I will sometimes put all the old veg into a super stew and freeze it for mid week meals rather than throw it away.

London was the first leg of my travel down to Perugia Italy for school that summer. Sure glad I dodged it, as it would have made for a very short trip, indeed! LOL

There are so many times, I'll cook a big pot, as my son will pop by, but then I get tired of it, so I put the rest in the freezer. It's great to pull out a quick frozen dinner made by me:)

Absolutely. They always taste good.

Everything that I save and freeze always tastes good, right along with the money saved by stretching out it, Bux!
Reply
davebux Premium Plus
Too right buddy. I don't waste money and I don't waste food.
Some of my concoctions look strange but they sure taste good.
I always splash out when I'm out on the town though, especially on vacation. That's the time to have fun, especially if you have good company.

I've heard of those things! I've never had the pleasure of going there though!

Now THAT sounds delicious, Sis! 🤔🤔 That might need to go on the menu!

Interesting, indeed, Bux!
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
The way I do it, is when I cook something, I'll eat it until it is gone, Bux! It saves the hassle of freezing, and extents my food budget further!

Yes, on rare occasions, I do the same, Sis!

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
I know what you mean about the concoctions looking strange--mine do too, many times, but they are oh so delicious!

Since I seldom go on vacation anymore, that does not apply to me, although, I remember when I would take all day trips to another city, and that would be "no-holds-barred"!

No holds barred - with your mates. I know what you mean. I'm surprised we still have our liberty.

Yes, indeed! I am totally surprised too, but the governments are steadily chipping away at that with each new "variant" that comes along! Dispicable, IMHO!

Hey there, Jeff!
Yes, the platform was down this morning, the word from Kyle during this evening training.
I thought these trainings were only for Premium Plus, but I was wrong!
Really great goal setting and what one can expect with new sites:-)
Beautiful full moon, a time for completion of projects.
I bet with the beautiful pics you posted, you'll see it in Kansas, too!
Morning meeting was fun, and set the tone for a great day.
I actually spent time on my site and feel like I accomplished much.
Sunday was rather a poopy day! GinGin had tummy trouble:) LOL
Later, Bro!

I need to go take a look, Sis! I closed down before it was dark! Although, I can never capture a good image of the moon!

I figured if it was Kyle, it would be available to all!

If the Full moon is good for completion of projects, I might complete an early night's sleep!
Sorry to hear Sunday was not as stellar as you would have liked it to be! Those days deifnitely happen from time to time!

Have an excellent relaxing evening!

Last night I had to wash all my bedding, since Ginger did make it to bed:( Overnight eruption! Pewie!!
Clean bedding felt nice, however and I changed my bedspread to create a different look.

I was having trouble with WA this morning too, Jeff! Thought it was just my poor satellite connection fighting the snow but good to know otherwise. That spaghetti looks yummy. What a supply of inventory at the lock house! Great scenery and tree pics as always! I especially like the one with the setting sun over the neighbor's house. Enjoy the rest of your evening :-)

Yes, I was quite surprised myself, Susan! I had answered and read maybe 5-15 posts when suddenly bad gateway, or nothing at all but buffering! That is what promted me to leave early and get some things done since the day turned out to be pretty nice! The spaghetti was delicious! I used to eat that all the time wen I was with Monica at the house! It has been a while since I had any, so I made a little!

The lock house has a lot of inventory, that was only the front room! There are four more rooms there. Not all are full of inventory, but there is more going over there daily as I consolidate all lock tools and inventory there from the Warehouse complex, and the eBay house garage and shop!

I always like when I can catch the sun just so in juxtaposition iwth the horizon, a tree, or some other building or object! Those are my favorites too!

Enjoy your evening! I hope you had a GREAT day!

Jeff
