Ugh. Don't remind me summer is coming. I'm already contemplating taking the dog clippers to my head.

Morning. Camp Writing finished up last night. I was up past eleven getting stuff put in spreadsheets so I just have to check this morning before reporting that I'm all done.  It's supposed to rain all week here. Lots of thunder and rain.

Morning.   We're having a Memorial Day bbq today instead of tomorrow.  Not sure why, dh made the plan.  Maybe weather?  I don't care enough to ask.   We're having burgers and crab legs with my mom and maybe oldest dd coming over.   As far as I know right now, dd and I are meeting to work out today.  Holiday weekend makes it weird even without anyone working.   

I'm going to have to figure out what to do about our workouts once we start going to the lake.   If it's raining, it won't matter we'll just go to the science center like we do now.   Workout at the lake may work somewhat but it would be some very repetitive lap walking.  Our stretch of beach is about 50-60 feet.  Dh suggested walking around the lake but we would be out of sight of the kids and there are no lifeguards during the week so I'm not comfortable with that.    We could kayak and stay where we can see the kids on the beach.  Can do about 100 feet back and forth doing that.     We could do a mix or change our time to earlier in the day.  I would prefer working out earlier but I don't know if dd is up for that.

Lol, tempted to quote Frodo on Mount Doom but that would probably be a bit melodramatic even for me...

I just watched it last night!  "No, Sam, I can't recall the taste of food, nor the sound of water, nor the touch of grass."  😢🤣

Reading a book that started out good, but is ending up being tremendously disappointing. I’m just skimming through it now.🙄🙄

I was finishing up with the camping stuff and researching ultralight backpacking hacks and putting pizzas in the oven.  I think I have found acceptable storage for All The Things.  Some bins have been re-labeled.  Sleeping bags aren't hung up yet, but that's Somebody Else's job.

Yes. This. It's over 80° outside. Nothing short of premature labor is tempting me out that door today.

I did something! I cleaned a cabinet out in the laundry room. Then I got the muscles of the house (DH and Oldest) to go fetch a bunch of clothing bins from the attic and commenced to weeding through, sorting out, and packing away outgrown but still in great shape children's clothes. Now I have a much better idea of what everyone here needs clothing-wise.

We went for a walk. Along a path where painted rocks have become The Thing. People paint rocks and leave them next to the path. Our favorites were the ones painted like dragons hatching out of eggs. Oh, and the little collection of rocks painted like different candy bars--some in their wrappers, some unwrapped and partly eaten 🙂

I finished the book. What a disappointment. It started out really good, then the middle part I skimmed through because it got raunchier and raunchier and finally the end was depressing and predictable and the awful story about a bunch of people who make a lot of wrong choices and I was so glad the book ended and put me out of my misery because there was no hope for these people.

The waffles were yummy. I made a berry topping, which is especially good on top of sour cream.

 

 

Points for quoting myself.

My mother and dd were over for dinner so we were sitting out on the deck.  

We ate dinner outside on the patio. I love dining al fresco. Though I think we’re going to need an outdoor ceiling fan and some misters if this is going to continue.

There’s a lot of giggling out in the backyard.  And I keep hearing the tent zipper going up and down. Oooooh, now Baby came inside. “I got to go bathroom!” DH isn’t out there yet.

The story is completely twisted. I hated it when I read it in high school. I think I hated every lit book I read in high school.

Why?

I hate The Great Gatsby.  I don't think I've seen any of the movies, maybe a few minutes of an older one, but considering the source material there is very little hope.

Sorry. 😞

I didn't hate everything, but my teachers did a really good job of trying to get everyone to hate literature.

j/k

My English teachers were mostly ok.  It was The Powers That Be who chose the novels who really need to be exposed to some good literature.

I have actually been actively searching for a copy of The Great Gatsby and recently purchased The Lord of the Flies.

I also want to own a few Steinbeck and Hemingway works.

And I have just given all of you substantial proof to my book addiction:

I like to own and read books that I don't like.

I love Steinbeck. He is amazing. I loved “Cannery Row” and “Sweet Thursday” and “East of Eden”.
 

Hemingway......I think I read the first chapter of “Farewell to Arms” about five times and really had no idea what he was talking about, so I quit that one.

I think I liked “To Kill a Mockingbird” and I did like Shakespeare. And we did like “Pygmalion” and loved the movie.

The only Steinbeck I've read is Of Mice and Men.  I hated it.  But that was in 10th grade about half a bazillion years ago.  I'd like to give it another chance.

Good Morning!  It's Monday, Memorial Day.  Coffee's ready!

I disliked The Great Gatsby less than Hemingway.  I never read Steinbeck.  I had a semester of 20th century Lit in highschool and hated all of it.  I do like To Kill a Mockingbird - probably one of the only American Lit. books I do like.
