Hi Friends!! I’m linking up with Sheaffer and Shay to talk about what’s up in the month of July!!
What we’re eating this week…
Caprese Chicken & homegrown green beans
Pizza & salad
Chicken sandwiches & sweet potato fries
Chicken Pot Pie Not using the pie crusts though…just putting some biscuits on top
What I’m reminiscing about…
Growing up in Iowa, I had the best neighbors! I’m an only child and I had 4 girls living next door. What a dream! Those girls lost their Dad last week to Parkinson’s disease. =( I’m remembering the fun times we had as kids and especially remembering Jerome Kersten and the great guy he was! I remember his truck parked at the end of the gravel driveway every night. I remember climbing the apple trees that he planted, and his love for the garden. My heart goes out to his wife, Shirley, all of the girls, and those that are left behind to mourn.
Because of Jerome & his family, I will see them all in heaven someday!!
What I’m loving…
I hate to say it……but I love Tiktok!!
Yes, I know there are states trying to ban it, and it’s probably taking in all kinds of information about me, but I LOVE IT!
Why do I love it? Because I love the cleaning videos, the day in the life tik toks, & the RECIPES!!! Oh, and the funny animal tik toks!!
I also am loving this new canvas that I got from Amazon!!
What we’ve been up to…
Cleaning up the dock after a big storm. Can you tell some of the best fishing is right off our dock?? Haha!
Trying a new dessert recipe- Yum!
Having friends over for a boat ride
Keeping things calm & boring while I’m recovering from my surgery
Time with family
Dinner on the patio
Piper was spayed
Wrestling with the grandkids
What I’m dreading…
The grooming appointment on Friday for our youngest dog, Piper Leigh.
We have a mini golden doodle puppy that has wavy & fluffy hair. It’s so much different than our super curly doodle, Honey Bee. I guess we’ve neglected brushing her and she has become matted. I’m thinking the groomer may have to shave her down to start over. I feel like a bad dog mommy. =(
What I’m working on…
A home binder for our VRBO lake home.
What I’m excited about…
Every day we move closer to Fall weather, and I’m excited about it. I had a hysterectomy at the end of June which put me straight into menopause. Let’s just say “I’m having my own personal summer!”
What I’m watching/reading…
We are watching The Great British Baking Show, Emergency NYC (Netflix) & I’m watching Chesapeake Shores on Peacock.
What I’m listening to…
My Happy Mix on Spotify! It truly makes me happy!
Also, I listen to the Dr. John Delony Show.
What I’m wearing…
Right now I’m wearing my cozy clothes! Retirement life is GOOD!!
What I’m doing this weekend…
Watching some of our Grandchildren! I have some fun things planned!!
What I’m looking forward to next month…
Friends from Texas are coming in August, lunches with friends, and a bridal shower! So fun!
What else is new?
Not new, but we rescued a chinchilla from a neighbor when our daughter was about 8 (she’s now almost 22) and the darn thing is still alive! We were his 3rd owner when we got him. He has to be around 20 years old!!
I hope you’re having a great summer! If you have any of those hot flash remedies, PLEASE let me know in the comments or message me! Cheers to a FUN August!!
