7 Quick Takes # 63

I haven't done a 7 Quick Takes post since the end of November so I thought I would restart with today and see how I feel about it in a month or so. I did enjoy it before although thinking of 7 things every week was a bit more than I felt I could manage during the month of December.

I also figured out when trying to find what number I was on that I repeated 34 twice so I have spent countless minutes this evening editing numbers on blog posts because it was irritating me. Yes, I may have a slight problem.

I changed the image at the top because I liked this one back when it was posted and I felt like something different. Also, I have no creativity streak when it comes to making graphics. This is something I would like to learn but it's not going to happen any time soon.

It still astounds me  when watching the weather that there is a tropics update or even a need for a tropics update. Alex being the first named storm in January for the 2016 is weird to me but it also seems fitting since the weather has been acting all sorts of crazy over the past little bit. Mother Nature is drunk.

Because I am petty to the highest degree, I was extremely glad the powerball winning ticket numbers were on more than one ticket after hearing the millionaire in California was one of the winners. Also, I bought a single ticket for Saturday's drawing. You can't win if you don't play is my motto and the idea of that kind of money was worth the $2. Although, I promise you that amount of money scares me. I honestly can't imagine how it would be to have access to that kind of money.

I have my first vacation of the year coming up in 3 days. (Not that I'm counting or anything.)

Tonight is going to be a good night. It's raining so it should drive some business in. (At least that is my hope.)
