planning another fun day out with my mom for August.
watching Covert Affairs, Suits, Rizzoli & Isles, Graceland & Perception. so fun to have a few good summer series shows.
reading books! I have slowed down in my reading but still at it so that's something. In June I read Back on Blossom Street,Twenty Wishes, & Summer on Blossom Street. Next up is Hannah's List & a couple more in the Blossom Street series, then I plan to request the inter-library loan to get This, this & this
celebrating the sunny days & the growing garden. The garden is loving the rain & cooler temps but its JULY in IOWA, we are NOT supposed to need jackets & jeans to sit outside at night :/
thankful to be able to enjoy the change of pace for this summer with the boat broken down & more weekends at home.
loving our twice weekly park days! one is a short one 9am-11:30 then we come home to something in the crock pot for lunch & the other I pack a picnic & we stay until 1pm.
eating smoked brisket & homemade apple pie & ice cream for the 4th of July--can.not.wait.
enjoying the easy peasy summer schedule we are doing this year, deciding the previous week where to go.
wearing capris or long pants this week in these cooler temps.
walking several early mornings each week-still. hoping to add in some running next week-then it will probably decide to act like summer weather ;)feeling refreshed after a weekend with my mom junkin'. (that's a whole other blog post)
planted tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, sage, basil & lemongrass for our garden this year. the sage died but everything else is thriving.
