A Look At Our Week
The weather finally cleared up for us this week. We have had lots of beautiful, sunny days and have not had to shelter in place even one time! We came back from our visit with my family and went straight back to work and into our normal routine. We did manage to fit in a Skyline Chili visit on our way back though! My guy tries to never miss an opportunity for Skyline. I could take it or leave it and avoid the three-way at all cost. I much prefer a good ol’ southern Krystal burger!
There’s not much to share this week as our days are pretty much repetitive. Do band, eat, sleep, repeat.
Hard at Work
My guy has been in an unexpected role this week. He’d be quick to tell you it was an unwanted role as well, but he has handled it all wonderfully. I love sitting on the sidelines watching as he works. Especially when I am able to hear him as he talks to the members. He has quite a way with words and it isn’t lost on these young people.
Again, no show secrets coming from me, but I did manage a few rehearsal non-give away shots. You have no idea how unfortunate you are that there is no audio to go with these pictures! It’s going to be a great drum corps summer.
Busy Hands & Busy Mind
My hands and mind have indeed stayed quite busy during my time on the sidelines. I have beat my amount earned records with my work and I am beginning to finish up all of the jobs I brought to keep myself busy.
Among those jobs has been dealing with pictures. I have brought all of my pictures for my scrapbooks detailing my travels and hikes with my guy. I have worked to organize and label all of these five years worth of pictures as well as organize my pictures folder on my computer. Everything is now in it’s place and properly labeled. I am currently working on putting our hiking pictures into a movie/slideshow. I am envisioning this playing during the background during gatherings in our home. No worries, I have no plans to make anyone sit down and actually watch it picture by picture. Looking at all of the pictures really does make me stop and realize the beauty that we surround ourselves in each day. I miss our mountain home!
I have also worked on writing down some family recipes for yet another scrapbook project I am working on. I want to make my nieces a recipe scrapbook. They both have an interest in learning how to cook and well, their mother will be no help in that area. 🙂 I am trying to include family recipes that have been passed down, but I am finding it hard to get my hands on some of these. Also, I would love to have handwritten recipes from family members to frame and hang in my kitchen (when I get one.) I’m all for not being a hoarder, but there are some things that are priceless and do have value. So, if you are reading this and have some handwritten recipes from my family, I’d love to have a copy.
And of course, I have been crocheting as well. I am still working on the same project and have had a few bumps in the road. Like sewing a leg onto the head and arms two different sizes, but I am pleased with the progress. We will see when I complete the project in the next day or two if it is “gift-worthy” or not.
I am happy to learn (thank you weather app!) that at least my garden has had some rainy days while I’ve been away. I’m anxious to get home and see if there is anything left. If not, then I will just have to keep the farmer’s market in business this summer and try again next year. Seeing pictures of other people’s gardens is making me quite jealous.
Have a great week! XOXOXO
