A bit of a late start with this post today as I was off on an adventure with a friend. However, I have some free time now to share about our adventures and plan the week ahead!
We started off in search of an Iris Farm. Arrived only to find a not super friendly proprietor who directed us to the Internet as it was past bloom time (though a message on their answering machine had told a different story). Wound up in Weston and had lunch, browsed the few open shops, and then made a quick stop at the state park. Not the day we’d planned but still a fun adventurous sort of day.
Joining in with Sandra from Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom to keep my weekly planning motivation moving. Go check out her blog, lots of encouragement there.
Can you believe it’s not quite officially summer? It arrives Friday! It feels a bit summery today at least. Highs in the 80’s all week with chances of thunderstorms here and there.
On My Reading Pile
Managed to get a little reading done last week thanks to Amazon Prime reading. Read Memory of The Butterflies by Grace Greene which was somewhat enjoyable and then, my Kindle First selection of False Step by Victoria Helen Stone. I wasn’t impressed with that one. And now, I’m working my way through The Day The World Came to Town: 9/11 in Gander, Newfoundland by Jim DeFede.
Movies Or Shows I Watched This Weekend
Friday night, I watched Wreck-It Ralph Breaks The Internet, cute but not as good as the first movie. On Sunday, we watched My Cousin Vinny together as a family (it was my husband’s Father’s Day gift from the kids).
On My TV This Week
Probably a few more episodes of Lucifer but I’m going to try to focus on spending more time reading.
