Whatnot – 05/11/22

RosesGood morning! This has been a busy week so far. I am looking forward to a slow-down as the weekend approaches. Between additional work duties and me trying to catch-up on reviews, I’ve not had a lot of spare time but I’ve been taking a little bit of time each day to organize and work in my planner. I always feel better when my planner is up to date. These past two years planners were obsolete so it’s taking me some time to get back into a routine. I’ve also returned to my daily walks. The knee is holding up. The roses in the neighborhood are all blooming and very pretty. 

The Girl comes home on 5/19 and will have an array of medical appointments to figure out her recent health issues. She may have a job lined up for the summer too. My son is settling in. Root Beer the cat calls me every night to say goodnight. She is such a doll but has been a little naughty swiping at the phone and attacking my son during the call. It’s funny how her personality is coming out.

The L.A. County Fair is back and going on right now. Usually it’s in September and it’s always hot at heck then. It would be really nice to go now, when the weather is so nice but I’m not sure we can work it in. I will be leading a table discussion at a women’s conference beginning 5/21 so my Saturdays are booked and Sunday is always too busy with church. Do you enjoy the fair?

I am reading a couple of books right now because I forgot that book club is next week so I had to switch to that one in order to get it read in time. But my other one is good too so I keep flopping between the two.

It’s the time of the year where I buy little things for the backyard. Wind chimes, solar lights, that type of thing. I hope to have book club out there so I am getting the patio in order for summer hangs. I purchased this one solar light from the dollar store thinking it was only $4 so if it doesn’t work no big deal but it’s a really cool torch light with a realistic flame. I am going to go back and buy more. Are you getting your outdoor spaces all ready for summer or is it still cold where you are? I’ve seen some snow pics!

That’s all I have. I hope you have a good rest of the week. The weekend is almost here.

  1. I am finally getting the boxes ready in the garden to plant veggies. we’re a little bit behind with our extra weeks of cold weather and rain

  2. I bet you will be happy to have your daughter back so she can get better medical care. I thought RootBeer was a male – just assumed for some reason. I’m sure she misses having you dog and others home during the day so she wants all you son’s attention in the evening. Hope he is enjoying the new job.

    It’s 70 here today and sunny. I’m admiring my Mother’s Day hanging basket. Soon I’ll buy a few more annuals around Memorial Day weekend. I’ve been reading at a good clip but, reviewing is my problem.

  3. Heh, I’m basically finishing up the period of the year where I can go outside and enjoy it. We’re in the 90s every day this week with no sign of a break, so I guess summer is here (ugh). 😛

    I’ll keep a good thought for your daughter’s health!

  4. I have felt very out of touch this past week: no reading; no leaving the house; feeling Covid-out of it. I really wish I could read. I do enjoy a fair once in a while, but haven’t been for ages. Have a great weekend.

  5. Those roses are gorgeous. We had snow on May 9 that stayed on the ground for a while, but now today is 60s+ and no snow except in the mountains. Have fun with your daughter! it’s almost time now.
