Lil's Week In Review ~ July 20, 2014


July 2014 NaBloPoMo Theme is DECADE, and since weekends are left open to blogger's choice, here goes.

This Week In Review:


 ~ Personally speaking. After 5+ years, I finally had a much needed eye exam and selected new frames for new prescription to replace broken pair. So happy!

It's the little things.


 ~ Daily indulgence: Cherries... can't get enough of them. Last week Bing cherries were perfection; this week, not so much.

 ~ Dinner winner:  Leftover Cajun chicken tenders, diced and tossed with garlic, butter noodles and veggies.

~ Most wanted:  Sushi! Will I ever again have sushi? It's been way too long.


~ Carilo Family Movies*: Summer 2014 flicks that we watched this week, as selected from @EW's "...essential movies kids must see before they turn 13." were...

#28 Black Stallion
#29 Willy Wonka
#30 Who Framed Roger Rabbit


 ~ Movie views were at a minimum this week due to unplanned evenings out, of all things, mall shopping, and haircut getting! The mall is so not my thing. That said, outings were for clothes for my husband. This fact should have been enough to put me off, but as it turned out, each outing was fun and almost stress free. My body is still recovering, but it was worth it. The hubs looked great head-to-toe in his job interview duds for tomorrow's interview in Denver.  Now, with this job prospect...


 ~ I ask that our former hometown in Colorado welcome us back and provide these requests: Perfect health, wellness and comfort for my family. Perfect right job w/ perfect right salary & company benefits for Rick. Perfect right job, educational, & volunteer opportunities for the rest of us. Perfect right neighborhood, community and home life experience. Perfect right healthcare insurance and providers. Perfect right dog living. All things good... I ask of universe, for my good, my family's good, and good extended to those we encounter and all paths that lay before us.

May this good ripple out from all of us, and goodness stretch to it's furthest reaches no matter where from... be it here in the Southern California desert, or wherever Rick's career leads us. May all our efforts be purposeful and love filled. I send this out to the universe, believing... knowing all is possible. Please, affirm this with me. I did same as we departed the desert for our new life in Texas in 2000; I know achievement is possible again. In sincere gratitude. The Carilo Family....


~ This week's A How-To Guide visits from around the globe:

United States
United Kingdom

Yay, world!

And speaking of world. May those in pain, fear, and sorrow be safely sheltered and cared for during uncertain times.  May world leaders see beyond differences and recognize the injustice perpetrated on civilians. May their eyes, hearts, and minds open and may they work together; beyond ego, selfishness, and unreasonable motives in order to strive without reservation to protect the innocent and defenseless.


 ~ Create one vlog next week in addition to completing daily NaBloPoMo posts before dinner.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until tomorrow ~ Lil
