Well, I realize I’ve been missing a few days here and there, and lately not having a lot to write about.
But today makes up for lost time! Many things made me happy today, including the amazing sunshine!
I spent the afternoon digging and weeding the garden, but it still looks messy. Oh well, some more manure, a bit of water, and I’ll get the seeds in soon.
We had a Dr. appointment for my little guy this afternoon, found out we need an ortho consult. Since he started walking, he seems to drag his right foot sideways a little. Hoping and praying it’s nothing serious.
We then had some playtime with both boys over at grandma and grandpas, and had fun swimming in the backyard.
A beautiful evening has been spent outside. Beginning with grilling some Tuna to a perfect medium rare, along with peppers and zucchini. Some wine, and eating on the patio. Ahh, summer, I think you’re here!
Now, kids in bed, husband working on our basement renos, and I’m sipping another glass of red on the patio.
Also enjoying a few moments with my faithful beagle. We prepare to say goodbye to him soon, as I think his illness is getting worse. But seeing him roll around definitely makes me happy.
I love the smell of these little blossoms on my plum tree. We have an apple tree and a plum tree in our backyard. They each produce fruit every other year. This year is plums! We also have the most amazing raspberry bush. I can’t wait to get some veggies in the garden, although I never have the best luck. Each year I try, and I’m just happy with whatever comes up!
Finding a new series of books! Being a huge mystery fan, I’m not sure why I have not read these earlier!?? Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Milhone alphabet mysteries are Amazing. Everything I want in a book. Great protagonist, fast paced reading. Taking place in 1980’s California adds to the charm. I wonder how long it will take me to make it through the alphabet.
Out at the Silver Spoon dinner. Alan Thicke was our guest speaker.
Always a fun night out!
As much as I live long hair, it feels nice to have something new.
Little hard to find happiness after the sadness of the last few days.
But there were little things. I hugged an old friend today, and our tears were shared, but it felt peaceful. It was a cool day, but the sun came out for awhile. And these two really are my pride and joy.
Looks like 2 houses on my street have been sold. I’m a little sad to lose the one family because our kids were close in age, although I wouldn’t say we knew each other that well.
But it’s a little exciting to see two new families come to the neighbourhood. I’m really hoping for young kids, and maybe cool moms I can become friends with. We’ll see.
