Life: It Goes On - May 3

Rain, rain, rain - there's been a chance of it every day for the past two weeks but my goodness is it green and beautiful here and finally getting warm enough that dinners on the patio are happening more often than not.

It's been a quiet week here - nothing at all on the calendar this weekend which allowed for time to movie night with Miss H, dinner with friends and lunch today with Mini-me. Just the thing this girl needs to recharge her batteries.

This Week I'm:

Listening To: Vintage Postmodern Jukebox - covers of everything from Madonna to Guns 'N' Roses to the Game of Thrones theme song in totally different musical styles. Loving them!

Watching: The NFL draft, because, you know, we love our football.

Reading: I'm a little over half way through Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. So glad I'm doing this as a listen/read combination because the book has so many visuals that really contribute to the story. This week I'll also finish and review Trail of Broken Wings for a TLC book tour and Jojo Moyes' Silver Bay.

Making: Chicken fajitas, grilled steaks, grilled burgers, nachos and s'mores. It's been all about easy and eating outside.

Planning: A family trip to the Ozarks to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday. The biggest trick will be trying to figure out how we'll fit five people and their luggage plus food for four days into my vehicle!

Grateful for: Farmer's markets which opened here this weekend. The Big Guy came home yesterday with a tomato plant that is already three feet tall. We'll be having fresh picked tomatoes earlier than ever. Cannot. Wait.

Enjoying: A clean house. That stays clean. Being an empty nester might not be so bad after all.

Feeling: Like May is going to fly by too quickly - we have something on the calendar every weekend.

Looking forward to: Two graduations and a wedding on Saturday and Mother's Day on Sunday. Also known as the official day to start gardening. My herb pots (I managed to keep parsley, oregano, and rosemary alive all winter) are already back on the patio.

What are you looking forward to this week? Are you a gardner looking forward to getting back in the dirt?
