Hello and Happy Monday! Are you feeling rested and ready for the start of another…
I’ll just come right out and say it: June is flying by! But here we are and it’s time for a mid month check in on what’s happening around here right now.
Knitting: a dishtowel. And, for the record, this cotton does not make my hands hurt at all.
Reading with my eyes: The Covenant of Water. But you already knew that.
Reading with my ears: Nothing at the moment.
Watching: Grey’s Anatomy. From the beginning. I had forgotten just how great the first few seasons are.
Eating: Seasonal things like strawberries and hamburgers & hot dogs but also regular things like sourdough bread (yes, I still bake it regularly) and steel cut oats and lots of eggs.
Recommending: Pair Eyewear. I took the plunge and got the glasses that have super fun toppers so you can match them to your mood or outfit or season. I’ve got a discount code if you want to try them out. I love them!
Growing: Dahlias! 15 out of the 16 tubers I planted are up and I checked on the one that hadn’t sprouted yet yesterday and I think it will break the surface really soon. I’m so excited to have new varieties this year!
Remembering: 25 years ago when we put things in a time capsule to be opened on June 14, 2023. We opened it yesterday as part of the town’s bicentennial and, let’s just say the contents were underwhelming. Most had been destroyed by water damage and there were lots of pictures of the 175th anniversary . . . cake.
Loving: Long long days. Dusk at 9pm? Sign me up!
Celebrating: Our anniversary and also the 200th year of our little town. We’ve had some great celebrations already and the BIG ONE is tomorrow night (a concert by Dale’s band and fireworks!) that had to be postponed from yesterday due to predicted thunderstorms. If you could send all the good weather juju my way I’d truly appreciate it!
Anticipating: Maine! One week from today and we’ll be on our way!
What’s going on with you right now?
