Regular exercise is becoming [again] a habit. It’s funny how FAST a habit can be dropped, not so funny when you realize that it takes four times as long to bring it back.
Life changes. Aging.
(Repeat-Repeat) We’re still working on selecting the paint color for the house trim. Mr. Pea did not like either of the two samples we painted, so some time this week I need to go fetch another sample.
DirtBike cut down two ginormous trees that were against the house, opening up my garden! I’ll be getting out this week to finish clearing and planning the restoration of my garden.

I spent hours yesterday prepping meals and freezing them for the weeks to come. I know that between transitioning into the new job, summer school, kids’ jobs, etc, our schedule is going to be crazy. I can make it feel less tedious if our evening meals are ready to go. I can thaw ahead then whoever gets home first cooks. That means that the boys will be expanding their cooking repertoire beyond pancakes this summer! Yeah!
Family Bike Ride this morning – it was wonderful, cool, and lots of fun. Bathing the dogs. Yes, this counts as fun, because we have horse sized dogs and bathing involves teens, garden hoses and buckets. Roasting Marshmallows.
The Architect got the job!! He’s going to be a lifeguard at the new splash park opening in our dinky town. He has to schedule training this week, in between his finals. Next on the list is getting that boy a drivers’ license. He’s been ready for ages, but we can never make it over to the DPS for the test. They are only open for testing from noon until 4 on weekdays, which means pulling him out of school and taking off work to make it happen. We have to do something quick, because we need him to help drive DirtBike to his summer classes. (He will be able to ride his bike or even walk to work; yes, it’s that close.)
Our 27th anniversary is this Friday. Wow. Twenty Seven years! TWENTY SEVEN years! It sounds like such a long time, but it feels like it flew by in just an instant.
Linking up at Suscipio – come join us!
