This summer has been going by with lazy days that I am now forgetting which day of the week it is from time to time. So in a word it’s PERFECT.
If you live here in Seattle……I mean Denver you’ll know that the rain, hail and storms has gotten to be just a drag. I had to fight the bad mood yesterday. It was depressing to walk out and see once again that all my lily pads on the fish pond (first world problems clearly) are shredded. There were leaves floating on top and in the bottom. I got the net out and got to work. I was a bit shocked to see that the fish were actually trying to jump into the net. So I have to wonder what is on the bottom of that fish pond that they don’t like. I’d rather not know. I’ll leave that for my husband.
This week I was only too happy to discover a pasta dish that everyone devoured. Including the Bubba. I usually have to ask him before plating dinner if he will go with the red sauce or whatever I’ve made to go with a pasta. Since it was technically a white pasta with white cheese (parmesan) I didn’t ask. Everyone proclaimed it to be one of their favorites. And given it was a cheap dish, easy, and one dish meal I’ll gladly make it again!!!!
Even though it’s summer we are still busy with workbooks, reading programs, visits to the library and researching anything we think of. There’s been lot’s of games of Guess Who and 20 questions. Yesterday Priss was all too happy when she stumped me on a fruit, with a seed (I should have asked if it was a pit) red, round with stem. Ummmm I couldn’t get past apple for some reason. I mentally walked the aisles of the grocery store a million times. It was a cherry! It made her day that I couldn’t get it. It worried me I was losing my mind.
I am on a reading frenzy again. I currently am reading Astronaut Wives Club
It’s a great and quick read. I am so intrigued by the stories. Plus, add in that ABC just aired the second show last night and it’s my summer addiction. I even got Hubby to watch a bit. It is history after all. And I love being able to chime in little details from the book.
I could have been in this club! But, I would not have smoked like a chimney. I would have shown up with champagne to support another wife. I would not have turned a wife away from being there to support me. BUT I would have totally been that wife that put on the smile and carried on over a flight. NOT over the mess that went on with girls that liked to visit the husbands at hotels. Oh. I just don’t think so. That would have made me furious and I doubt my marriage would have stayed in tact. It is interesting to see that the astronauts were heros to all of America at that time. Yet, they had babies and children at home that never knew them. If you are not watching catch up and get on board!
I’m so excited to see these arrive in the mail today.
I don’t know what I’m going to use these with or for. But, I’m using them. They may stay gold. They may get painted. I have no idea. I just think they are darling and for the price how couldn’t I buy like 20 of them.
I am ready for the weekend. Although every day right now feels like the weekend for us. I am loving summer and right now yes I am still happy that the kids are home for the summer. Yes, we keep having moments where I have to say stop touching one another. But, yesterday when Priss made a crown for Bubba’s puppy because after all Puppy is the king of Bubba’s bed……..his words……….it made me happy that they get to spend days without plans and just come up with their own creative playtime. It’s amazing how happy the house is when you leave a table set up with markers, crayons and paper all day long. I wish I was still little.
