My Dad's Birthday and My Daily Checklist

Today is my dad's 63rd birthday. I happen to know he likes being a senior citizen, lol. His hair went gray early, but he's still got a full head of those strands and his face remains youthful. He's as active as ever, as mentally alert and agile as ever and I wish that he will continue to enjoy good health for a long long time. I pray that his ministry continue to grow and that he remain a good testimony and a blessing to our church. Happy Birthday, Dad!

Side note to our congregation: If the church is planning a party, stop referring to it as a surprise one, lol. We do it every year!

I used to have this propped in front of me when I was at the computer. It's a list of my daily goals, a reminder of what I want to achieve everyday.

I had to use the board for something else, so I traded it for this sign:

And then I added another one on the wall across the bed (another place where I often dawdle).

You see, Marguerite and I were playing bistrot and we had to use the back of the original sign for this:

If you're a fan of E.L. Konigsburg, you know that's nothing but plain old mac and cheese ("From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler"). :)

Thanks, Mabel. The checklist is certainly a good way to make sure you do not miss out on the important things. :)

Mac and cheese is yummy! I may have to "play" bistro here too one of these days. A very happy day to your day, and your checklist is truly great. Best...

Thanks for stopping by, Sharkbytes.:) Sadly, Marguerite didn't eat the mac and cheese. I had to cook another order of macaroni. She likes her "nouilles" plain, lol.
