Life: It Goes On - June 1

Happy 56th wedding anniversary to my parents today! Things I have learned from them: a) marriage is a partnership, b) it's okay to fight sometimes as long as there are more times that you are treating each other with respect and love, c) sometimes life is hard but you work through it and move on, d) family is everything. The Big Guy and I have been blessed to have both of our sets of parents as marvelous examples of marriage to mold our own marriage on - probably why we've made it almost 32 years now! Love you two!

Here's What I'm:

Listening To: What Is The What by Dave Eggers - so good! Love the narrator. I have a hard time making myself get out of the car when my journey is done.

Watching: Looking forward to the season premiere of Longmire on A & E tomorrow night. Thanks to BG's brother for turning us on to this show. The show is based on the "Walt Longmire" series written by Craig Johnson. I really need to try the book series as well.

Reading: Blew through Lisa O'Donnell's Closed Doors this week; one of my favorite books of the year. I'm starting On The Island today for a special book club meeting next week then I'll start Natalia Sylvester's Chasing The Sun for another TLC Book Tour.

Making: Turquoise trophies! You know those trophies your kids get just for being on a team? A couple of months ago, I cleaned all of those out of Miss H's closet but I got to looking at them and thought they might be fun painted. They haven't found a permanent home yet but I'm kind of loving them.

Planning: On spending today cleaning out the garage. This is BG's realm but when I can no longer get to things I need out there, it's time for an intervention. Arguments will ensue - I believe there is a limit to the number of rags you need to wash a car; BG does not.

Grateful for: Air conditioning. Seriously, it's been in the upper 80's with humidity even higher than that. I do not need to be sweating just trying to keep the house picked up.

Loving: Having a weekend with nothing on the agenda. I've had time to get things done around here and hit up the flea market and a couple of Goodwill stores. No great finds, though.

Feeling: Annoyed with whichever critter in my backyard decided to eat the strawberries that had just ripened. A barrier will be made today to protect them; not sure why this was never an issue last year.

Looking forward to: Harvesting my first crop of lettuce today!
