Sunday Update – June 5, 2022

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Sometimes even the short weeks are as hard as the longer ones, right? I feel like we try to cram everything into 3 or 4 days that we'd usually do in 5! So by the time Friday comes around, we're all exhausted.

Monday was a holiday here, and we were at the beach house. We slept in and enjoyed the quiet time then grilled in the evening.

Tuesday, we drove home because my kids had the day off from school too. The district had leftover snow days that we didn't use and they made the Memorial Day weekend longer. No complaints from us! The drive home was pretty easy.

Wednesday, it was back to life as usual, though my husband was still at the beach house taking care of some random things like a visit from the plumber and the tree trimmers. He drove back in the late afternoon.

Thursday, I did some grocery shopping and took Lulu for a walk. It was pretty hot so we didn't go too far. Lulu doesn't like being too hot (she also doesn't like being too cold, so basically, she's Goldilocks), and when the pavement is hot, so is she. Summer walks are never very long. A crew came to take down 4 diseased trees. That took most of the morning. Then the landscapers showed up right after. It was perfect timing!

Friday was rather chill. I worked out in the morning and got more groceries delivered in the late afternoon. They arrived early for once. That rarely happens.

Saturday, we went to the town pool for the first time this season! Speaking to our friends there, it seems that Memorial Day weekend was INSANE at the pool. Super crowded. We suspect that due to the increased airfare price and gas for cars, people are not going to be traveling as much this summer. We'll have to watch and see if that's the case.

Writing is happening, albeit slowly. I wrote at the pool on my Neo 2, and I need to bring those words over into Scrivener. I'm starting to feel better about the story, and I know that when I'm done, I'll have to return to this first act and fix things. It'll be worth it.

I finished ALL 400 EPISODES of Grey's Anatomy. I started on this in mid-February and just finished this week. The first 17 seasons are all on Netflix and then season 18 was on Hulu. It was quite the ride for me. I laughed. I cried. I scoffed. I learned that uterine transplants are really real, and that I love a good drama. I'm looking forward to season 19.

We love going to the beach! It's my time to get a little sun and lots of reading.

We enjoyed some smores at the beach house with our fire pit!

This sunset was so gorgeous but it was SO BUGGY due to all the horseshoe crabs on the beach.

Back at home, we had 4 trees removed (you can see them marked with orange ribbon over there on the left) because they were diseased. It's always sad to see trees go.

For the first time ever, Duolingo actually responded to one of my in-app language reports.

Went to the pool on Saturday and I'm spending my mornings on the couch reading with Lulu.

Have a great week everyone! Stay safe and healthy.
