Make thee an ark of gopher wood" (Genesis 6:14). It rained and it rained and it rained some more. The College World Series has had more weather delays this year than I think they have ever had. I haven't had to worry about watering lawn and garden, but I haven't really been able to get out and weed, deadhead, or eat on the patio.
The official start to summer was cool and rainy and I don't like to celebrate that day anyway. It's the longest day of the year which means that everyday after that we are getting less and less daylight. Sure, I know that it happens so slowly I won't even notice and I'll get over it. But I loved leaving a party at 9 the other night and it was still bright light out. Also, it's not the official start to summer for me until this happens →
It's not enough for BLT's yet, but it sure makes me happy!
Last Week I:
Watched: Baseball - the College World Series variety.
Read: I finished Celeste Ng's Little Fires Everywhere and now I'm reading Curtis Sittenfield's shorty story collection, You Think It, I'll Say It.
Made: I really haven't cooked much this week. We did have a couple of different pasta dishes.
Enjoyed: Seeing how much my dad is improving when I visited them yesterday.
This Week I’m:
Planning: On finally getting the summer decor out. It's time for whites and blues, seashells, and cleared off surfaces.
Thinking About: Painting my dining room table. We refinished it a couple of years ago but I've never loved it. I'd love to paint it white but I doubt I can talk The Big Guy into anything but black.
Feeling: Conflicted today. Yesterday was busy, what with a 2 hour hair appointment, a trip to Lincoln to see my parents, and then an evening with old friends. So do I make today productive or relaxing? So far, it's sort of been a mixture of both.
Looking forward to: Book club on Tuesday and dinner with a friend on Wednesday.
Question of the week: If you could make one change in your home, what would it be?
