Favorite "Corn Hole" Game

What's it called  in your area? Its called Corn-Hole up here... but they usually involve HUGE bulky wood boards that are heavy & hard to carry around. I like these because they fold up AND I bet you get some bounce off these making the game more fun.

Favorite Waffle Maker

This is awesome! It actually makes your waffles in the Captain America Shield logo.
Hubby would totally dig this.

Favorite  Key Holder

I saw something similar on Good Morning America the other day. 
I love this idea to keep your keys folded up so they aren't dangling & keeps them organized too.
& you can add your bulky keys on the end too that dont fit inside.

Favorite Trivets

these are actually Silicone!!! & come in so many colors!
So you can put all your hot pans on them & they fold up & are bendy so you can wrap them around like pot handles that get hot. Keeps things from slipping on your counter. I'm just loving these!

Favorite Beauty & the Beast

Favorite Folders

because I love office supplies

Favorite Soap

I wonder what it smells like.  
Be a fun throw in for Father's Day gift

Favorite Coffee Mug

Favorite Funnies

... every time I cant think of anything to make for dinner

... basically every time I watch what's going on in the news

... me at 4:30pm today

Happy weekend!!!!

Thankful Thursday #312


This week I am Thankful for:

We try to wait as long as possible to turn on our AC for the year & actually, this year, we had a really great Spring. So we ended up making it to over half of May before turning it on. That's a record.  But glad it worked because we had some bad years that every time we would turn it on, something was in need or repair. When we turned the switch & cool air came in, AHHH - heavenly. & Summer is just around the corner. 

Ozzie Healing 
This little guy came home & never acted like anything was bothering him. He didn't lick at his incision but maybe a handful of times - & never long. I remember when Ernie got neutered - it was such work watching him. He wouldn't walk - just step, sit, step, sit. I remember when I called the vet & they said, "he's being dramatic".... after seeing Ozzie, I may have to agree with what they told me those years ago. I'm so thankful this hasn't phased Ozzie one bit.

I think Ozzie is letting us know he's done with his E Collar

I showed a picture of all the lettuce our neighbor shared with us on Monday's post. Gotta love Summer time with all the garden yummies growing. & thankful for neighbors that let us enjoy that fresh goodness!

Seeing Sophia Play
Sophia's tennis season got canceled last Spring because of COVID - that's right when schools shut down year - & with her shoulder injury, we didnt think she'd get another year in - so grateful her shoulder heal up enough where she can play & that I got to see at least one game of hers, it was wonderful.  She's only got 2 more years of high school tennis - I want to get in all I can!

that's her serving over there

Facebook Marketplace
Excited to sell not only my desk that I was wanting to make space with - I also have sold a few other things on there lately.  I'll take the extra funds on top of getting rid of stuff in the house.  Win Win.

Dishwasher... sometimes
Our dishwasher is leaking at the bottom. I thought it may be because soap was built up on one side (Why? I dont know) & I scrapped that off & it didnt leak - YAHOO.. & then it did again. & then it doesnt. It's a hit & miss. Cant figure out if its off balance, or what's going on - but I put a tray under it now when I run it & when its clear, I feel like I've hit the lottery.  Simple things in life.

Tell me something good about your week

The weekend that the cicadas are coming out

 What a fast weekend.  I hate when that happens.  But here we are again & hoping this week goes just as fast as the weekend did.

Friday, when I got off work, I ended up driving over something to a friends house & got to spend some time outside in their yard catching up & seeing the kiddos that I havent seen in nearly a year with COVID.  It was really amazing to see how much the kids have grown, but glad they still knew me like it was just yesterday since I saw them.

I got home & waited for someone to meet us that bought a desk we were selling on FB Marketplace.  Making space in that front room so whenever I come across my perfect coffee bar, there will be no hesitation - I'm buying on the spot & not letting it sell out again. I'm still depressed about losing out on the one that I desperately wanted.   But the people that came over to get the desk - they were just the coolest couple.  I knew when the man got of the truck & he had long hair to the middle of his back, we were going to like them. Ends up, he's in a band... & his wife, who was just the cutest little thing I've ever seen in my life, she makes jewelry & wanted the desk for that.  We ended up standing in the drive & exchanged COVID stories & Vaccination symptoms.  She had gotten the Johnson & Johnson shot just 2 weeks ago & it was interesting to hear someone else's experience with it. I think just like COVID, the vaccine carries its own unique thing for each person too.  Anyways, it was nice having strangers come over that were so comfortable to chat with.  You never know who could show up in these instances.  She is going to be selling jewelry at the local farmer's market starting in a month so I'm going to have to go check out her pieces.

It was getting later & my mom called & needed help because she hurt her hip -so I ran over there & ended up staying till really late.  When I got home, I crashed right to bed.

Saturday, no sleeping in for me. I was up & moving around, saving Cidadas so the dogs dont eat them - because Ozzie is just munching down. I'm like, these babies come out once every 17 years, I'm going to give them a shot of enjoying their short life.  I have been picking these things up & making sure they make it to the trees & climbing up them.  Even found this baby....

Crazy, isnt it? We had about 3 white ones. 

I had some morning coffee & then loaded up a chair to take to the high school because my niece was playing for Regionals with her team.  I'm so glad to be able to see her play because she had surgery on her shoulder just a few months ago & she wasn't sure she was going to be able to make this season. She ended up missing the first few games because her PT wouldnt release her - but she got released just in time to get in some games & start working on her game again. She really was playing great.

The funny part - her partner for doubles  - she used to be one of my old youth girls - so made it REALLY fun & exciting for me to cheer them on....& they won.  It was a great match  & glad to see Sophia really getting back at it & getting her shoulder back in Ace condition.

I got home just in time for my mom to call me & say she was on the floor -had been there all night - & needed me to come over.  Her hip was still hurting & I wasn't able to get her up - so we had to call 911 - again. I feel like when they answer, I just need to say, "Me again" at this point. This is the third 911 call just in the past few months.  I'm becoming a pro at answering the questions they need.

They ended up taking mom to the hospital to get her checked out.

While I was there, I took care of her cats & went out to stay with the horses for awhile.  It was such a warm day, but in the barn, it always feels so breezy in there. Cochese was happy to get some attention too.

I got home & went to check in with Hubby while he was still working in our back part of the property & got the biggest surprise. Our neighbor ended up sharing some of his lettuce's that he is growing in is garden. I mean, does it get any better than fresh yummies? I love me some fresh lettuces too - I made sure to make a salad by the end of the day & cant wait to have more as the week goes on!

Hubby & I went out to grab some dinner - sitting in our car because we're still not eating inside anywhere yet (who we are - SHRUG) & then we were going to go see my mother in law's new floors she had just gotten... but they called & said my mom was wanting to be released & I  needed to come get her. We were in Hubby's truck so had to turn around, & change out cars & I had to head back to the hospital. 

Date night in the truck - romance at its finest

Got mom home & once again, I was exhausted getting home... but it was one of those sleeps where you're so tired- but still can't sleep. I hate that. I ended up tossing & turning a lot. Thanks hot flashes.

Sunday, I just felt off. I got up early, & was trying to do things around the house but every time I would sit down a second, I literally was nodding off. I think I took like 5 mini 10 minute naps all day long. My iron must be really getting down. When I was in the hospital, it was extremely low - my Hemoglobin was at a 9 -which I know means my ferritin is bottomed out... I can really feel it again. Getting so exhausted at the simplest things.  It's really indescribable the fatigue, breathlessness & exhaustion.  I may need to call my hematologist soon.

Nothing really exciting happened Sunday - more horse care, more cicada saving - ended up locking the dogs in because Ozzie is now pooping tons of cicada shells (EWWW) I got started on some Disney+ shows - the new Mighty Ducks one - & we watched the first episode of The Falcon & Winter Soldier.  It was good to stay in the AC as much as I could because it sure did feel like summer all weekend. I think we have a few hot days ahead of us & then hopefully back to a little less oppressive heat - I'm not ready for that. My hair isn't ready for that.

So how was your weekend?

Is it feeling like summer where you are yet?

What do you do to pep up your energy?

Are you dealing with Cicadas?
