Here we are... the "unofficial" beginning of summer! Can you believe it?
Like, are we talking about we're nearly half way through the year? I know we're at the beginning of the 6th month - but OH MY GOSH... the sixth month!!! When did time get stuck on a fast forward button?
Of course, it was heavenly to have a 3 day weekend. Especially because this weekend, it was so chilly that we had our windows open & the cool air let me sleep like a baby. & when I say "cool air" I mean, it was in the low 40's & Hubby was freezing. Me, with hot flashes, it felt heavenly & let me sleep without waking up in sweat puddles. Ahhhh....
Saturday was really gloomy & very chilly. I dont think the high's got over 60 degrees. How nuts is that? But one good thing we discovered was the cicadas werent out in the cool temps. We got a break from that constant buzzing noise. Seriously - its so loud that at the height of it during the day, I cant even sit outside & read because its like someone is putting a buzzer in my head & just setting it on high. You come inside & it takes times to adjust... the lingering buzzing still in your head for a little bit. Its ridiculous crazy.
I even had to pull out my warm joggers & a cardigan... while most people are donning swimsuits for Memorial weekend, I'm putting on all the layers.
I got my grocery shopping done & picked my mom up some lunch & went & saw her for awhile & then just sort of took it easy. Did some cleaning around the house & ended up finishing the book I was reading. This one was a struggle for me so I'm glad to have it behind me... & just aggravated by it actually. I'll share more in my Show Us Your Books post next week.
I will backtrack & say, I know a lot of people are super excited that masks are in the past... for some. For me? Aint gonna happen for awhile. Yep, I'm vaccinated, but I also know that our Julie had COVID, had the vaccine & also just got COVID ... AGAIN. So I'm not taking any chances. Plus, as a germaphobe, I'm so glad that masks aren't a crazy idea now. I tell everyone I'll probably be wearing mine faithfully till next Spring - no shame. You do you - I'll do me. But I was super happy that when I went into the grocery, I fully expected to be the only person in the grocery with a mask on... I would say about 45% of the store was still masked up. Good to see it.

No shame in my game! :)
Sunday, the sun came back out, but it was still cool - but a GORGEOUS day. I did get to out & enjoy the sunshine & a hot cup of coffee with my new book before the cicada's started warming up & tuning up & breaking out their sound. Actually, I guess it was still too cool for them because Saturday wasn't bad either.
Sunday did take a turn when I had to call 911 on my mom... again. Yes, we did this last Saturday & actually just a few weeks back from that too. She had called me talking out of her head & not making any sense. Off to the hospital she went - she's still in there as of today too.
I did get to see my nieces on Sunday- & man, are they just so beautiful growing up into the young ladies they are? The last day of school was this past week so they are now official JUNIORS. & Sophia is actually DRIVING now. Y'all... Y'ALL..... did I say earlier about time on fast forward? This is what I'm talking about. I can't handle it.
It was so fun being over my brother's house too because his house is set back in the woods -& the deer just feel like this is their home too. Sitting outside with them, I saw 4 different deer at different times just wandering around. Totally look over at us & just like, Hey, what's up.... & continue on their way. Love they have a safe space around there.
Monday, Hubby & I got up early & I went over & let my mom's cats out to enjoy the pretty day & then we went to Panera for our breakfast outside. It was a perfect morning. I honestly dont really remembering eating the sandwich too much though because the doctors at the hospital were calling me with updates & questions... I hate when I look down & see my plate is empty & I really dont remember eating.
We went over to Sam's Club & picked up some stuff for work - which I'm really thinking our work from home status is going to be changing VERY soon with all the restrictions lifting. We shall see. I dont want to talk about it.... Ozzie doesnt want to talk about it.
We had to pick up a few other little things & got home & Hubby & I were both like, NAP TIME. I actually was excited to jump into Lucifer. I hadn't realized they released the rest of the season. BRING IT ON!
The rest of the day was relaxed - nothing special - some reading, got a work out in (GO ME) & taking care of the horses & mom's cats. Just a typical weekend....
& now we're into Tuesday, which I will confuse all day long for Monday.
SIDE NOTE - I know today is supposed to be ONE SENTENCE A DAY LINK UP... I'll join in tomorrow- see? Already messing up the days of the week.
How was your weekend?
