My son takes the SAT at 7:30 in the morning (what kind of psycho plans a test arrival at 7:30 on a Saturday?) and needs a ride since we couldn't find a local location.  Other than that, just me sipping on some almond milk by the garden and enjoying Mr. Sunshine (from under a really big hat!).

Lots of motorcycle, ATV, mountain bike riding. Maybe look at some waterfront property with my wife just for fun and an excuse to go for a ride. We might get crabcakes on the way for this little seafood shack.

I'm just excited that there's only fun stuff happening... Yoga, brunch and Italian lessons. No doctors, no work. Maybe a little shopping and a little laundry. Definitely sleeping past 6:30. Laughing

Our little town has its annual Basque Festival. It starts with a run (no, I will not be running), parade, Basque dancers coming in from all over, Basque games, food (can we say Chorizos). The weather is perfect, with temps forecast in the high 80's. 

I'm really looking forward to enoying this year, as I missed it last year.

Plan A was to go car shopping with my husband, but they asked him to work. I will have to go with Plan B: I go car shopping and he earns overtime money so we can afford a car.

Me, being Mr. Excitement, We are planning on painting our living Room!   Woo Hooo!  It has been a two year project painting and decorating the house.  We are hoping to be close to finishing by the end of the weekend.  (I know we are really exciting people. lol)

 

My sister and her husband are coming to visit in 2 1/2 weeks.  We must have the house finished by then. (or at least really close.) We just had the second bathroom rebuilt.  

 

We will also go to the Farmer's market and hopefully the Strawberry festival!  (Strawberry, Arizona)

Best Always, mike

The Basque Festival sounds great!  Good luck to Helen's son on his SATs!  Happy car hunting, sleeping in, finishing the home decorating!

For us. No plans, just spending time together, flowers and sweet conversations.

Happy Anniversary! Such fun plans all around this weekend. Even painting is fun when you know family is coming to visit.

and we are heading back to my home town for the party.  Brother and SIL split up unexpectedly last year, and former SIL is getting remarried already (hmm, have to wonder if that was she suddenly left my brother).  Fiance will be there so our side of the family is showing up in force to show support (for bro, not fiance).

Should be interesting!

 

Basque festival sounds fun, btw, trubrit...have fun!

And good luck to your son on the SATs, Helen.  Or I guess I should say hope he did well, given the time!

Thanks. He isn't sure how he did so we'll just have to wait for results. My BIL did the exact same thing. I think it's hurtful to remarry so quickly. Good show of support!

My twins took the SAT too on Saturday. They went through a SAT boot camp class all week first. Saturday afternoon went to Chattanoogo to see my grand babies girls. They are the sweetest babies in the world! 11 days old yesterday. Today I will be packing all day, moving next Saturday. Hubby and I have been living apart Monday -Friday and we finally sold the house and will be living all together next week - finally! Now why won't all this stuff just jump in a box for me, ugh!

We went on a 14 mile canoe trip yesterday.  The weather was beautiful.   We saw deer, herons, muskrats, and lots of fish!  Today will be chore day!

I just have to say it here.  I had the most fantastic time at the Basque Festival, the food and the dances were so good. But sadly that evening, one of our dancers, 18, was killed in a car accident. I have a video of him dancing his heart out, and it breaks my heart to know that he is was so vital and vibrant in the afternoon, and gone in the evening. My heart weeps for him, for his family, for his many, many friends, as he was much loved at school and in the commuity. In fact, he was so loved, that when he was taken to the hospital, teenagers by the dozen went there, and the police were called as they were blocking the road. On Sunday, there was a memorial service held at the high school. Only hours after his death. That is how popluar he was. 

I'm sorry to be rambling on, I guess I just want to talk as it eases the sadness I feel. Life is way too short, too short for us, and too short for everyone, because we truly don't know what the day may bring.

Wow. I often think you just don't know when it's the last 10 minutes of your life. 18 years old, still a baby. Hearbreaking. His poor mom and dad.

While I beliebe he's enjoying eternal life, I do pray for his family.  18 is just barely when life starts.  I do pray for his mom and dad, and siblins.  life is indeed too short.

Well we enjoyed a lovely long weekend in the beautiful mountains of NC (Asheville area).

Wow - I could look at those mountains all day.  Stayed at a great B&B.

We will start to do alot more of this now.   I decided that life is for living and I will enjoy each and every minute.  I will only worry about cancer for scans and blood tests.

Also took a restorative yoga class before heading home.

Just great

That sounds amazing. One of my goals is to see the waterfalls of the world. Nature is the best healing we have.
