Life It Goes On - May 26

Finally - a three-day holiday weekend! As usual, there will be rain this weekend; Memorial Day weekend always means at least some rain here, often storms. But yesterday gave me enough sunshine to get outside and finally finish my planting. Do you have big plans for the long weekend? My favorite part might be knowing that I follow this three-day weekend with a four-day weekend! 

Here's What I'm:

Listening To: I created a new station yesterday by starting with the 1990's alt rock group The Cranberries. Alanis Morissette, No Doubt, 10,000 Maniacs, The Verve, Radiohead - my kids grew up to this music and my house stayed clean because of the jolt of energy it gave me.

The Cranberries

Watching: Other than the Husker softball and baseball teams, not much. Reruns are starting so it's time to shut off the t.v. and read more!

Reading: I'll be finishing The Burgess Boys today although I'm still plugging away with Bunker Hill. I just can't get into a rhythm with it. On audio, I'm almost finished with The Thirteenth Tale. On my Nook, I've downloaded Under The Dome and Meg Clayton's The Wednesday Sisters. 

Making: Cherry bread pudding. Yum! I've also made some homemade cleaning products this week with mixed results. More on those later.

Time to paint these chairs
Planning: I'm working on some plans to tweak our outdoor spaces.

Grateful for: All of the men and women who have served our country.

Loving: Long, lazy dinners on the patio.

Thinking: It's time to get back into my basement and, once again, reorganize. We still haven't had the time to really find homes for the things we brought home from The Big Guy's mom's home. Although that will have to wait for rainy days!

Looking forward to: Celebrating my parents' 55th wedding anniversary this weekend with my siblings and at least some of their eight grandchildren.


  1. Cherry bread pudding sounds delicious! Congratulations to your parents on their anniversary!

  2. Trust you had a good time celebrating your parents' wedding anniversary. Hope there's also time and good weather to get out and about before you get back into that basement!

  3. I've heard mixed reviews on The Burgess Boys. I'll be interested to hear what you think about it :) Happy long weekend!

  4. I listen to music when I clean too. It's the only way to tackle clutter these days.
