Sunday snuck up on me. As you saw from an earlier post, graduation is almost complete. One down, another to go.
This past Thursday my son surprised us with another visit. He is good as not telling you what his plans are. He likes to just come through the door. The only thing is that the pup can tell he is coming even from a block away which is pretty impressive since she has never seen or heard his new car. He walked in, we hit the market and got stuff to grill plant-based burgers. He had stopped for fresh strawberries so we made strawberry shortcake too.
He came, he went. He will be headed back to San Luis Obispo today to finish up school and to gather up some more of his things. Not sure if this will be the last trip or not. His car is smaller now. We may have to drive up at some point to grab the rest.
Nothing else planned for the day besides a long walk which will have to be timed for optimal weather (it’s getting pretty hot) and my son’s departure.
My daughter starts her camp training this week. Grad ceremony for #2 at the end of this week. Some work items I need to work on in preparation for the fall semester. Yes, I am starting early because I will be moving my daughter to Missouri during the most critical time for my campus. Hoping to get as much set as possible before I go. I don’t have anyone to back me up.
10 Books of Summer 2021 and #VentureForth is in full swing. I am glad to have a list of books I want to get to because I was just approved for some really good ones and now I need to figure out a way to get them all read. Recently approved for: Damnation Spring by Ash Davidson, The Guide by Peter Heller, Taste by Stanley Tucci, and The Family Plot by Megan Collins. See what I mean? It’s a good problem to have.
This weekend I am picking up again with Summer Darlings.
My son introduced us to Barry on HBO Max. It has Bill Hader and Henry Winkler. It’s quite funny and clever.
- We finally have a move-in date for my daughter. I have secured a hotel room for the week in Missouri. Need to check out the rental car situation. If I can get a rental, because there is a nationwide shortage, then I will book a flight. If not, then we will drive. I’ve padded move-in by a few days on each side to allow for travel and shopping.
- Plants. I am eternally grateful for all of my new plant friends that I picked up during the shutdown. They have given me great joy and are thriving! I’ve split them into multiple pots now because they are doing so well. I had a horrible track record with plants before this so this is really something. This photo is an example of how my home is covered in plants now.
Enjoy your weekend!
