|just now. on the porch. because it’s pouring … and I forgot to take this photo earlier today when the sun was out.|
Are you finding it hard to believe it will be June next week? I am. and I guess that means it must be time to share a little slice of my life. right now.
Saying Yes to Summer! I know it’s barely spring where many of y’all live, but around here, school’s out Thursday, then it’s Memorial Day weekend (and I’m already wearing sleeveless) … I’m ready! (even though we had a very short spring … I laughed out loud to read that last month, I was still waiting for it to arrive!)
Loving my unplugged mornings. I’m now several months into the habit and I don’t even think about looking at my laptop until after my first (or second) cup of coffee and some quiet time with my journal and maybe a book.
Planning the next year for our Women’s Ministry. Thank you for all your good thoughts about finding a new co-lead; it hasn’t happened (yet). My first meeting as Moderator is June 3 – and I had a little panic attack this morning when I realized that was NEXT weekend (such is the life of a retired business woman, I guess 😉)
Eating more than “just snacks”. I read Marc a few of the comments from yesterday’s post and he said “well, it is still a lot more vegetables than protein” to which I replied “as it should be”. Saturday night we roasted fish and made “fish taco salad”. Sunday night he made edamame pasta salad with broccoli, spinach and tomatoes. (and um, yeah, we haven’t been to the grocery store since the week before last.)
Drinking grapefruit juice and tonic (with gin).
Watching The Americans (we should finish Season 2 tonight) and Patrick Melrose (I watched Episode 2 today – Benedict Cumberbatch should win all the Emmys for his performance and I do think the rest of the series shouldn’t be nearly so dark … because I’ve read the books and Sara promises the script follows pretty closely).
Needing a really good landscape plan (and an excellent contractor to execute it). We’ve lived in our house for nearly six years and we’ve been putting up with what the builder installed. It hasn’t aged well (the front beds are overgrown and the backyard is a mud puddle). Now that Marc has time, we’re ready to fix it. But whoa, it’s been hard even to get someone to come out to look. We met this morning with the guy who helped with our old house and we’re hopeful.
Wanting to find a really good match for the “book that matches a WIP” for the top left corner of my Bingo card.
Looking forward to seeing Sara next month!
Enjoying morning walks at the park with Lauren. or to the lake with Marc.
Remembering all the Memorial Days I spent with my family; we’re changing up the family reunion to be Labor Day this year. I cannot remember the last Memorial Day weekend I spent at home. wonderful memories. new traditions.
Hoping (again) the upcoming election season doesn’t get as nasty as I think it might. After today’s primary, we’ll likely have at least one unpleasant runoff … and then it will be full-on campaigning until November. ugh. ugh. and ugh.
Wishing that the weather improves enough so Marc can play golf. I do love having him around, but all that works best when he can be gone for a while, too.
Saying Thank You to all of you for your tremendous response to this year’s Book Bingo!!
What are you Saying Yes! to right now?
