Sneaking this one in just under the wire. There's lots for which I am thankful since I last wrote, let's see if I can remember May, June and July so far!
one: I'm so very glad nobody seems to mind if people pop in and out of this link-up. I'm nothing if not inconsistent when it comes to writing these.
two: If you somehow missed it, The Cleveland Cavaliers won the Championship! That's the biggest thing in NE Ohio since I don't know when. The last time a Cleveland team won a major sports title, I was just a few weeks old. And, that my friends, was a long, long time ago.
three: I had a week off at the end of June for vacation. It was one of those "stay-cations" and it was lovely! I futzed in the gardens, played putt putt, hiked, and did a whole lot of nothing.
four: Christine mentioned last week that while she was in Ohio, we got to get together and visit another lovely lady, Melody and her family. What a wonderful afternoon that was!
five: Sis and BIL have a pool in their backyard. One of the days that we over there, it was a little too cold to swim. But, that didn't stop up from dippin' our toes in and splashing around a it.
six: We enjoyed a lot of hikes in our local county parks. Jack liked going off-trail and into the stream.
seven: While on vacation, we pulled out the hammock. We've been enjoying cold beverages, good books, naps, and the choir of birds while lounging on it. We feel sorry for PWH.(**)
eight: The view from said hammock has been quite beautiful of late - blue skies and puffy white clouds. It never gets old trying to figure out what the clouds look like. Today we had, among other things, a dragon, a puppy and a baby.
nine: I have been reading a lot lately and have had many good books from which to choose. Two I am currently reading, Divine Mercy for Moms and The Selected Letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder, I was given copies so that I could read and review them. I'm a little behind, but soon.
ten: I love a lazy Saturday or Sunday. Between going to work and just doing normal errands, I sometimes feel like I'm always in the car. Recently, I have been trying to make it a point to have "go nowhere days" and I love them!
