Summertime is here and we should all be making our new summertime jams playlist and bucket list. I am lacking in all things summer and lists and need to get on that like now cause summer may have just started but I have a feeling it'd going to go by fast.
A week of listening to too much NPR and all the news which leaves me feeling all sorts of sad and angry. I think that I need to take a mental break from it all and just listen to music(new summer playlist). The craziness is getting to me. BLAH! Painting and cleaning were the big work things. So much painting and now I can't seem to get it all out of my hair (you know, from hitting my head against the wall) But that's coming to an end, kinda. We now have some time to work on the house again so we can finish the porch, which entails painting it. I am really excited to get it done but dreading having to commit and pick a color. My stack of paint samples is a little ridiculous.
We did get to spend a little time with the Miley and Judah when they came over for a afternoon of watermelon and park time, The new thing that we do when they come over is to walk around he neighborhood looking for free stuff. (it's all about the thrill of the find) We also went to Sophia's dance recital which was hilarious. Littles in elaborate costumes trying not to fall of the stage and maybe dancing a bit? Too freaking cute. And summer farm share started!!!! 3 heads of lettuce and 1 lb of mixed greens and it took me about 2 days to eat it all. Not much makes me happier then a big bag of freshly picked greens. It's the simple things.
I might not be thrilled that today is suppose to be hot and humid, but I am really excited to get the heck out of town for a few hours. The river is calling us. The mr and his fishing pole and me with a wide brimmed hat, ample sunscreen, and my watercolors and books to keep me happy. I might even pack a picnic because food is good too. Oh, and I need to put up a little fence situation around one of the garden beds....The butt head squirrels keep jumping out of the tree and onto my cabbage. I told them to stop but they won't listen. Jerks!
