The Week in Review 5/23/2018

Something making me happy:  Summer is here! Today is the last day of school. No more alarm clock or lunch making first thing in the morning.  I think I have a good plan for the summer, I just hope I have the energy and patience to make it happen. In anticipation I put away the Spring decorations and put out our red, white and blue theme which will take us through Memorial Day, Flag Day (June 14th) and 4th of July.

What I read: “Absent in the Spring” by Mary Westmacott aka Agatha Christie. This is actually a re-read, I love this story about finding out about yourself.

What I watched: Finished watching “The Terror” and that show scared the pants off me!  Not the creature but watching the military order disintegrate and how one evil man could ruin an entire expedition.  And I may have watched a few hours of Royal Wedding stuff 🙂 .

My latest coloring project. I would have worn the one on the left (with a shrug to be appropriately modest)  to the royal wedding, if I had been invited.

Family movie night: I know this is hard to believe but my son and I are just getting around to reading the Harry Potter series. We finished book one and got the first movie from the library.  We spent Saturday morning making a few floating candles, chocolate frogs and cauldron cupcakes.  My son made a little banner with the four different Hogwart’s houses and some wizard cards to go with our frogs.  Pizza and popcorn rounded out dinner.  The movie was longer than I expected so we had a rather late night but worth it.

I am so doing this for Halloween in our front yard!

Crazy toenails: I seldom wear sandals so I paint my toenails just for myself.  I call this “rainbow sherbet”:

It was surprisingly hard to take a close up picture of my own toes.

A happy surprise:  When I went to my bowling tournament in Laughlin, NV a few weeks ago I had only signed up for singles.  When I checked in I was asked if I wanted to bowl doubles, someone was in need of a partner.  I said okay, introduced myself to some guy I didn’t know and then went off to bowl on my own lanes at the other end of the bowling alley.  I never saw him again and had no idea what he bowled.  I got the results in the mail and we took 7th place out of 41 winning some prize money! A nice surprise since I finished 19th out of 50 in singles.

 

I hope you had a good week!
