Montage Monday:) A Week In A Peek

26 Jan

“The rain has stopped, and the sun came out. And that my friends, is what it’s all about. PATIENCE.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


Finally, the rain has stopped. I was going to sing “Rainy days and Mondays,” today, but no need. Maybe I should sing, “Here comes the Sun.” It’s a good day to sing.

Happy Monday, my friends. A week in a peek…

“I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.”

~Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


Never give up your dream, my friends. Today is a good day to be reminded with Dr. King’s words.

Here’s my week in a peek… livin’ the dream…

Montage Monday:) A Birthday Week in a Peek

“ The nice part about having so many wonderful friends and family member is that when it’s your birthday, you get to celebrate all month and you get all kinds of awesome gifts and well wishes.”

I’ve been celebrating my birthday all week. I’m still getting cards, phone calls, and gifts in the mail. I must be pretty AMAZING! Just sayin’.

Here’s a week in a peek…

“You normally have to be dashed about a bit by life to see the point of daffodils, sunsets, and uneventful nice days.”

~Alain de Botton


A pretty uneventful mundane Monday here. I had been playing phone tag with a few friends these past couple of days. So today was catch up on the phone day, Four hours and forty-seven consecutive minutes on the phone with friends and my left arm is numb and I hear a strange ringing and buzzing sound in my ear. Well, not actual ringing, but I think I can get Radio Free Europe in my head if I stand close to the microwave.

Here’s a week in a peak… (I’ve been dashed about a bit.)

Montage Monday:) A Week In A Crazy Covid Christmas Peek

29 Dec

“After all the gifts are opened, the wrapping paper thrown everywhere, the cookies are baked, the dinner is devoured, the sink is piled high with dishes, and the kids are in bed, you know what is left? Yep! A BIG MESS! Just a big mess!”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


Well, that is right, sort of, isn’t it? All that work and trouble for a couple of hours of holiday hoopla, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. This was a crazy year, and I didn’t get to see my family or friends for Christmas. But, I thank the powers that be that I’m healthy and doing well, and hopefully next year will be awesome.

You know what is left? A big mess. I’ll get to it by New Years…maybe.

Happy Monday, my friends.

Montage Monday:) A Week In A Peek and a Christmas Star

“As Christmas Day approaches, I wish you a buenas noches.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


It’s Monday, folks. On Friday it will be Christmas already. How did that happen? 2020 is almost over. Thank God!

A week in a peek…

This evening, I went outside to see if I could find the Christmas Star in the southwestern sky. It hasn’t been seen in 800 years, I did! It wasn’t dazzling or impressive with the naked eye, but I got to see it. I won’t be around in 800 years.

“Thank goodness for Monday, a new week, a new start and no short term memory. What day is it again?”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


I think the only reason I write a blog every day is so I can remember what day it is. But, there was that one time that I said it was Tuesday when it was really Wednesday, and I wasn’t even drinking. I did forget an entire year once. Somethin’s gotta keep me straight. It’s a wonderful day. It’s my youngest granddaughter’s 2nd birthday. I miss not being able to hold her and smother her with kisses, but I did get to FaceTime her and wish her a happy birthday.

Now, my week in a peek…

Happy birthday Sophie Bear, otherwise know as Sophie Knievel..

Thank goodness for photos and phone calls and memories. I’m going to miss birthdays and Christmas with my little girls, and visits with fiends and family.

A Week in a Peek…

Now, where could Elvis be hiding on my Shelvis???

Elvis on the Shelvis is still admiring my hand-painted glassware in my studio, (There are a lot of Shelvis’ in there.)

Happy Monday, my friends.
