What’s Going On Wednesday: Graduation Prep And End of School Countdown

Thought I’d take a minute and share a little glimpse of what’s going on around here. This used to be a blog theme I’d share in from time to time. So, here’s a “behind the scenes” look at my life this week.  

First, the whole house smells like onions! We haven’t followed the menu plan yet this week. While at the store yesterday, I decided we’d have BLT’s and homemade onion rings for dinner. I’d use the air fryer! What could go wrong?

Frozen onion rings probably work great in an air fryer, the from scratch (by that I mean with a mix) kind, not so much. So…why not fry bacon and onion rings at the same time? Think I was in the kitchen for a solid hour just cooking. Dinner was at least a success minus the house smelling of onions.

I have tubs of photos all over our living room for my “arts and crafts” project. Need to make one of those photo boards for G’s party. Figures as soon as I gave up and ordered prints, my husband found the missing tub. Oh well, it’s been fun seeing all the pictures again. Might scan and share a few blast from the past photos at some point. 

Also, stated I’m throwing away every picture of tree, lake, mountain, etc without any people in the photo! In probably a mid-life crisis of sorts, I’ve named my upcoming summer…”The Summer of Letting Go” Time to clear out the clutter. More about that later. Stay tuned.

Started to take J to the high school this morning instead of the middle school. They’re in opposite directions. Oops!  Told J I was just ready for him to be at the high school (so much closer to home than the middle school)  Seven days of school left. Too much on my mind.

On the way home from the middle school, a lovely little black spider decided to keep me company by crawling way too close to the area of the windshield by the driver side window. And yes, he was on the inside! Had to watch traffic and he disappeared. Rolled the window down for the rest of the way home, hope he hopped out! I’m not offering a ride share program for spiders!

In about 10 minutes, I’m off to get my haircut.  It’s also beautiful out today & I’d much rather be playing outside planting flowers than inside working on the arts and crafts stuff.  

What’s going on in your world today?

    Ohh Jean I would have died if I was driving and a spider was crawling that close to me when I was driving !!! I hope you have a wonderful day! Your bird picture is so beautiful! Praying for you this week my friend !

      Thanks! He’s still hanging out. Seems the little guy likes to joyride and then, hide when I get home. UGH. Gonna have to go back out later and see if he’s appeared again so he can be evicted. I don’t mind spiders but one hanging near me while I’m driving is a little too close even for me.

    All the best sorting & clearing your photos. I keep thinking about our boxes of albums & packets of photos. Why do we keep them? Love the bird photo. Have a good week sorting things. Take care Cathy x

      Thank you! I have to admit there is something satisfying about looking at a “real” photo as opposed to a computer image. That said, I think we need a few less photos around here. I even have boxes of photos from my parents’ house when we sorted and cleaned it out after their passing. Hope you’re having a great Thursday!

    I think clearing out/letting go is a great theme for summer. I need to join in! Love onion rings but hate the smell too. I’m more worried about ticks this year than spiders. We’ve already found three. Hate them. Good luck with the photo projects.

      Thank you. Yikes on the ticks! Do the ones up there carry Lyme disease? That scares me. Making note that I need to get the cat into the vet & pick up some repellent for flea/tick season, I’m sure it’s coming sooner than I think. I think the photo project might actually come together. Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

    Wow! You do have a lot going on! “Letting Go”, it must be a theme. We are doing the same after painting the inside of our house. Doesn’t it feel lighter? Good luck with all you have going on! Admittedly, sometimes I feel like that bird in the photo! 🙂
