What I'm Eating this week: Monday I ate some of the Pulled Pork that I made in my crock pot on Sunday. It wasn't quite up to snuff but not horrible for my first time!I made chocolate cupcakes that evening since it was cool outside and tried my hand at making Jboz's famous chocolate icing. Tuesday, more of the BBQ, some pasta and a sandwich. Wednesday, I made Mix and Match Mama's Crock Pot Chicken Mushroom Ranch, which I put over mashed potatoes, vs her rice. I also made a cherry cheesecake!
What I'm reminiscing about:
What I'm loving: Summer!! I love not teaching super late every evening. Being able to get out and about in daylight, fabulous!! Summer is just a much more relaxed time for me, and even though it gets warm outside I would rather have it hot than cold!
What I've been up to:
I feel like I've been really active lately. Not necessarily busy, but just active doing things. Every Thursday I've been trying to get out and about and walk around a store or something of the like. Last week I went to a Farmer's Market for the first and last time. At least for that one!
What I'm Dreading:
Summer being over and Fall schedule starting. School starts even earlier this year, August 15, so my last month of freedom is upon me. HA. I say Freedom, but I still teach during the summer. I'm just loving a more flexible schedule!
What I'm Working On:
I have started loosely working on my fall schedule. I am determined not to over schedule days like last year and stress myself out like last year's Thursdays. I've also been doing little projects around the house, trying to get organized and spic and span clean!
What I'm Excited about:
I have some fun activities and meeting up with some Friends in July, and my Summer Bucket list, which I am slowly working through!
What I'm Watching/Reading:
I have been reading like a fiend!! I am in the Summer Book Club at the Library again and trying to beat my 220 hours of last summer. So I am reading a ton!! Gayle Roper and Karen Witemeyer are new to me authors who I just discovered this past week. I picked up several more of their books at the library this morning!!
As for watching I started watching Madame Secretary over from the beginning. Greys got too boring once McDreamy was gone.
What I'm Listening to:
I was listening to Major Crimes, but that just ended and now all I hear is the a/c.
What I'm Wearing:
Today I have on denim shorts, and my Every Name has a Story/NV shirt, and my studded Walmart Sandals. Monday I wore jeans, yes I said jeans! It was cold here! And a new green shirt from Salvation Army.
What I'm Doing this Weekend:
Friday morning I have a massage bright and early and then I'm meeting Emboz and the Madster for Ladies who Lunch!! Trying out a different restaurant that I haven't been to in years, over on Em's side of town because it's the Summer and I actually have time!! WAHOOOOO!! Saturday will probably consist of me being a bum and then going to see Fireworks that night. Sunday is church of course!
What I'm looking forward to next month:
Seeing some friends I haven't seen in awhile and just enjoying summer!!
What else is new:
I actually have flowers growing in my backyard. Ones that I planted months ago. Granted not all that I planted came up, I think the squirrels dug up the seeds. grrrr... BUT I grew flowers! And some of them are blooming and said squirrels and rabbits haven't eaten them yet, so YAY!
