Kali: I'm glad your luncheon was nice. Congrats on weed taming. No such luck here. The humidity makes the yard grow like crazy.

Thunderstorms yesterday and this morning. This weekend will be miserable. The heat index will hit triple digits.

Hope to start my table this weekend. I plan to do before and after pictures!

Eva - boating in Mississippi sounds fun.
I absolutely love the idea of your recipe table! I hope you will post a picture once completed.

Luncheon was good (company not so much the food) and I actually was able to pull weeds both Saturday and Sunday (no golf). We have a gravel drive in front that is always a 'bear', so preening is complete and I plan to 'round-up' anything that pops it's head above the stones.
The clover-like weeds are flowering, so I tried to get as many of those in the back as I could, but with more rain on the way, I'll need to be more vigilant going forward.
I planted some ferns under our fir tree out front and noticed that a number of the needles have dropped - hope it's not dying, but we shall see...

Have a great week!

It's raining here this morning. Thank goodness. It means I don't have to water the flowers. Brenna has a cooking lesson today and we are going to start our prep for redoing our table. We are decoupodging recipes from a torn up 1950s cookbook we found to the top of the dining room table. The table is a hand me down. The structure is excellent but the top really needs to be redone. So it's a perfect art project piece. Today we will cut out the chosen recipes and lay them out to make sure we have enough to cover our table. The actual work will be this weekend as a family project.

Kali: How were the luncheon and weed pulling?

We went hiking Friday in Tishomingo State Park in Iuka MS. I haven't been since I was a teen. Jimmy had never been at all. it was a good outing. I plan to take them back to boat out to the when the temps cool back down in Mississippi. We just happened to get a good day in the low 80's.

Eva - love that your weather is so good and emoticon on seeing Jupiter.
Sounds like a budding scientist is definitely worth telescope upgrades.
We've got emoticon in the forecast until Sunday.

Retirement luncheon today and weed pulling this weekend!

We were so excited last night! The clouds cleared and we were able to view Jupiter and his moons!

Brenna's interest in astronomy has grown A LOT. So I'm looking at telescope upgrades.

Kali: I swear you are busier than you were before retirement!

We are enjoying cool weather here as well. It's in the low 80s. That's unusual for June, but I won't complain. I like being able to sit outside and not feel like I'm going to melt.

This week if you have binoculars you can go out and find Jupiter and see 4 of his moons. We're dragging out the telescope with hopes of seeing more than the Galilean 4. Your best chance is between now and June 19th. So "summer school" for the next few days is at night.

Kali, our mosquitoes are starting to be bigger than the birds. emoticon

Jim beat the rain yesterday and cut the grass while I did the indoor chores. Saturday we spent too much money going to the movies. Secret Life of Pets 2 was hilarious. I love Cleo. The second movie was Dark Phoenix. As a '90s teen I was seriously disappointed in the script. That storyline was much stronger than the movie presented it. They relied way too much on CGI. I suppose if you didn't know the story from the comics and then later the cartoon you might not care.

More rain today. So Monday chores, cookie baking, string art and a lesson in making Southwest chicken salads. Oh and I have to go check on my parent's puppy, Daisy Mae.

Eva - love the 'Divine Miss BB'!

We did beat the rain, but I too have a mini jungle. I've been a little tentative about using weed killer, but unless I spend a couple days pulling, that's my option. We're in for a warm and cool front collision later today, so making a run this morning for topsoil and citronella candles. (With all the water the mosquitos think it's Minnesota.)

Kail: I hope you beat the rain! I certainly haven't. It looks like a jungle out there.

Feline: He's so adorable! I'm glad everyone is healthy and home resting. I look forward to another update when Liam gives you time.

I'm off to do the shopping in the rain once Miss BB gets up and dressed. I never should have told her that Bette Middler is called "The Divine Miss M." emoticon

Just a quick pop-in before bed tonight. Liam was born at 4:45pm 5/26/19. 19.5 inches and 6.10lbs. He spent a week in the NICU, but everyone is home and healthy now.
I hope everyone is doing well. Happy June!

Eva - birthday party sounds perfect. Love the idea of dancing in the rain!

Bella - I don't 'do' guided meditations. I often listen to Chopra or walk on the tread mill with eyes closed with mantras instead - there are several great apps (I've heard).

emoticon and emoticon this morning, followed by lunch with former and retired coworkers before emoticon and emoticon Hoping to beat the next emoticon

Have a great day!

Bella: I'm trying the "Meditate." app. I've yet to find my groove with a guided meditation. I've tried Headspace, which I really liked. I'm considering paying for the premium of that one. On youtube I'm fond of Positive Magazine.

Do you care to share your favorites?

We are in for rain for the next week. We need the rain so I'm not complaining. We've changed our plans to accommodate. If there's no thunder we might just go dance in it.

I would love to hear (literally) what meditations some of you listen to. I've been doing guided meditations from YouTube and have found quite a few I like. Do a lot of you use guided meditations? I'd like to know others experiences; if you'd care to share it would be very helpful.

Happy Summer!

Kali: Your peonies are beautiful!

We celebrated my step-dad's birthday yesterday. Jim manned the grill while I made sides and Brenna made a birthday banana pudding. It was delicious. I'm almost glad there's none left in the house!

Saturday, after the bulk shopping runs, we all went swimming. I forget every summer how the water decompresses the spine. It felt wonderful!

Eva - how emoticon to see a snake on the window!
I'm with you on scary movies - not my thing...
We took our emoticon on the deck and watched the emoticon rise. Hoping to get to the golf course and hit some balls after some major yard work. We've edged (what you can see from the kitchen) and taken tree debris to the landfill. The trailer is full of the remaining piles, but the lines were so long when we were there, we decided to just continue to fill it.

Enjoying the peony season!
