My favorite part about line dancing is when I do the grapevine and my thighs clap to encourage me to keep going.

5k and dog park done. I was chatting with the dogless guy who comes to hang out with the dogs (his dog died). He told me that his name is “S.O.B.”  Um... I’m not calling him that!

Ask if you can call him "S.O.W."!  Son of a Wesley.  :biggrin:

There's a lull in the rain so we're outside.

I think your weather is heading our way tomorrow.  Today is absolutely gorgeous.  Yet here I am in my living room going through clothes tubs.  The girls are gone, so this is my chance to quietly rid our house of probably 5 tubs of clothes.  I think I have another hour.

Scrub tops? 

I was looking into a scrub jacket with my logo for a lightweight options when the AC is too chilly.  My mother has an embroidery machine but we've run into some hitches with the logo and I need to rework it.  I was thinking of the jacket with logo and just a bunch of science themed shirts, with a few plain ones for backup.   

I've ordered from Eddie Bauer twice since January but mostly long-sleeve stuff.  I wasn't thinking Spring/Summer yet since it's been so cold here.   I bought a couple pairs of PJ pants,  a pair of jeans, some long sleeve shirts.

I used to work as a CNA and scrub pants are the most comfortable thing EVER.    

I've done multiple loads of laundry, put away the clothes from previous loads that have been sitting out for (over?) 2 weeks, went to the AFSA, stopped by the science center to feed the fish and found out my cleaning person did the pile of dishes I left yesterday that I was expecting to do so YEAH!, made dinner (boxed mac and cheese).

I'm mainly working on putting a 125 slide Powerpoint presentation on Excel into a format that I can print as a guide for the class to take home.  Our last day is Monday.  I think I"m down to 35 pages.   I should only need 4 copies.

At least you're not cussing anyone out.

Different families have different boundaries. We just have to respect one another in THIS space. Your family is your own (as is mine). 😘

We seem to have developed a good set of summer clothes for dd10 with items that both fit and match.  I've gone through 12 tubs of clothes.  I think I've reduced it to 7 tubs.  Need to make new labels with index cards.

We have gone through the apartment and thrown every large thing in the back of the truck and taken it to the dump. Old toys, old bed frame (from Dancer's old room), old love seat, and anything else that I could find to throw out. The place is still cluttered, but I now have a place to work, for sorting and stuff. A lot of stuff.

Just finished watching the UVa - Auburn game.  (College basketball, my friends.)

It was an exciting game and I was happy with the ending (although I thought it was going to end badly.)

I think I saw some teeny tiny sprouts of spinach today.  Or maybe that was the arugula.  Can't remember what I planted where.  Gardening 101.

I planted my tomatoes today. Our new house has no place for a garden. Too much shade, so, I planted two tomato plants in large pots and put them on the driveway in front of the garage door that houses DH’s non-operative ‘69 Grand Prix. That’s the only place that gets a decent amount of sun.

Yes ma'am!  I just realized that I'm about to get a visit from my least favorite aunt, and I may be getting some twitchiness from that.  Bah.

Yay tomatoes!  I can sympathize with your shady, garden-unfriendly yard.  The Celebrity tomatoes you recommended last year were my best plants!  They were in pots on my back deck.

Morning. My upper back is out, right between the shoulders, and I have 100 pages to read and line edit for emotion today. I expect to add things like "stabbing pain" "despair like a dull ache", and "anger pulled his muscles tight" but I'll try to moderate myself...

Other than that, caffeine, writing, revising, and taking another swing at the synopsis for my sequel again today. Get that to my writing buddies tomorrow maybe and see if it makes reasonable sense and sounds interesting. Because I haven't written that book yet...

Good morning!  I'm up, enjoying the quiet inside the house, listening to the birds outside.  Supplements, coffee, church, lunch at church.  Then I should be done with this babysitting gig.  

Dh wants to mow since it rained all day yesterday, and he won't be able to early this week.  But when I went out to let the chickens out, it was sprinkling again.  We will have a jungle soon.

If I get both ds's bedding washed today, dh and I will probably sleep on ds32 mattress tonight, to see if we want to keep it for ourselves.  It's pretty new and was a $2500ish set.  

I need to read the instructions for my new air fryer oven.  And make broccoli salad, ranch dressings, and maybe chicken/fish foil packs.

My yard project later this summer will be putting some kind of stone around that bed and around the Dogwood tree.  It's hard to find stone to match our house stone, sort of.  Any ideas?  A contrast would be okay, too.

I know, right?  Our yard is mostly clover (with pretty purple flowers right now), leftover fall leaves, dirt, and wild strawberries.

Angie, what's your recipe for broccoli salad?  I was thinking about making it for Easter Sunday dinner.

I'm making this one, which is the one Slache gave me, I think.  I'm not using the sugar or raisins, although I might throw some dried cranberries in dh's bowl.  I think the Amish version has shredded cheese.

Our "yard" is basically a wild flower meadow, aka weeds.  We live on the side of a mountain and it's very very rocky.  Partially shady with pine trees with roots that seem to kill off everything.  We don't bother with grass and ours tends to get much longer than that before it gets mowed.  Some of those weeds, um flowers, grow super fast.

Woke up about 8am after going to bed around midnight.  I can't seem to sleep in anymore.  I need the alarm to wake at 7am at least some of the time but I'm definitely awake by 8am.  I guess I've gotten into a routine.

Run to the science center to feed animals, more laundry, cleaning, setting up classes, setting up school should be about it for today.  I'm looking through my Great Courses list and think I'm going to have both kids watch some math stuff.  Both are struggling a little bit and I think it may help.  Algebra 1 for ds, Fundamentals of Math for dd.  That and/or some Kahn Academy.

We are expecting some thunderstorms later today. Very moist and warm outside this morning. But the rest of the week looks like a lake trip should happen Monday afternoon or maybe Tuesday.

Good morning!  

How are you doing today, Jean?

I am not at church.  The family left me here to sleep.  The thunderstorms may be popping up here and there through the day.  I'm planning to make avocado toast for lunch with the naan I got on clearance.  Avocado blended with some lemon juice & salt, tomato slices, and bacon.  If there's a decent lull in the rain we may go for a hike or at least take the basketball to the park court across the street.  I bought a basketball at the AFSA yesterday.  Not sure why. Could be a case of Barkley Bladder Delirium.  

Coffee!

I planted Celebrities, too. They are the best tomatoes.  Mine are still little, but they have flowers on them, yay.
