Life: It Goes On - May 12
Happy Mother's Day! It's a beautiful, sunny and warm day here and I'm looking forward to getting out into the yard today to get annuals planted. Of course, first I have to go pick them up. I love imagining the possibilities as I stand there surrounded by all of those young plants.
We've had a very busy, very fun weekend. We ran down to Kansas City Friday to watch the Royals play the New York Yankees. We haven't been to a major league baseball game in years but had so much fun, we're already planning to go again this year. We were back in Omaha long enough yesterday to go to a graduation party, change clothes and then head off to Lincoln to celebrate Mother's Day and to usher at the playhouse. Once again, we were amazed by the talent Lincoln has to offer - so many great voices!
Here's What I'm:
Listening To: After watching them perform Les Miserables last night, we've been listening to my Pandora Les Mis station. My audio book now is Diane Setterfield's The Thirteenth Tale which I'm really enjoying.
Watching: The Voice - my girl Sarah Simmons is doing great but they have so much incredible talent this year it's going to be tough to win.
Reading: I finished The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and I'm still wrapping my head around that one. I'm working away at Bunker Hill but it's slow going. I've also started Jennifer Cody Epstein's The Gods of Heavenly Punishment which I'll be reviewing on Thursday.
Planning: It's going to be warm here this week - my plans for this week are to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.
Grateful for: The opportunity to be with my daughter the first time she got to see her beloved Yankees play. Miss H is an emotional girl so let's just say that there were tears involved!
Loving: Sad Cat Diary on YouTube. So funny, especially if you have ever had a cat.
Thinking: The Big Guy and I need to hit the road more often. I'd forgotten how much fun (and more relaxing it is!) to travel without kids, even grown up ones.
Looking forward to: More graduation parties, a wedding receptions and my parents' 55th wedding anniversary coming up in a few weeks. Lots to celebrate!
