What's top of my mind: When he was no longer young, the great naturalist John Burroughs wrote, "I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see." I quite agree. Time is the one resource that as I get older I feel I do not have enough of. I want to continue to make enjoying every single minute one of my top priorities.
Where I've been: Friday we headed out of town to do our grocery shopping. Saturday we had a wonderful lunch at Firefly Grill. Other than that I've been at home mostly outside. The weather has been so nice. Sunny and warm but with low humidity and a cool breeze. Our gardens and flowers are all looking so good.
Where I'm going: I'm spending my last two days of my mini vacation right here at home which is exactly where I want to be.
What I'm reading: I finished reading The Lake of Dead Languages and I have to say I enjoyed it as much as I remember when I first read it. It's a very intriguing story and I did not remember how it ended and I was pleasantly surprised. I will choose another book today to take outside and start.
What I'm listening to: Peace and quiet. We technically live in town but I'm amazed at how quiet and peaceful our backyard always is. Sometimes I wish we wouldn't have gotten such a big lot but it really is my favorite place and it's worth all the work.
What I'm eating:
Who needs a good slap: We all know there are SO many people that need a good slap right now I'm just going to leave this one blank this week.
What I'm planning: The end of July we will be going to Chicago for a TKD celebration. The big guy is receiving his 9th degree black belt and I couldn't be more happy for him. He started his TKD journey while he was stationed in Korea for four years while in the Army and it has become a life long passion of his. This is so well deserved and I'm looking forward to our trip.
What's making me smile: The big guy is such a wonderful friend and husband and always makes me feel so loved. I also received so many texts, messages and cards from friends this week it reminded me just how blessed I really am. The doctor that is moving brought me a bottle of wine and a handwritten note thanking me and ended saying he considered me family. I had so many smiles this week.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
