Friday Five...

It seems like forever since I've done one of these...which is true, the last one I did was May 8th.  I've been slackin'!  Eeek!  Anywho, my Friday Five for today are things I love during the summer:

  1.  Baseball games.  I'll be venturing to the first Brewer game of the season tomorrow for Star Wars Night.  I am excited...I would probably more excited if the Brew Crew were on top of their game but they are not.  So, I think that I'm more excited about getting some Heavenly Nuts than the actual game.  Sorry guys but when you pull your heads outta your butts, I'll be more excited for a good game.

  2.  Campfires.  I love toasting my toes by a campfire & maybe making some s'mores with PB cups.  Yummy!  & chatting, oh, I love the chats that are held around the campfire.  They are quite entertaining from time to time.  

  3.  Sitting by the lake with my book.  During the summer, I like to drive to either a local lake or the river and read my book during lunch.  That will be starting not next week but the week after when the girls are on summer break.  If they are home, I don't like to be home cuz lunch is a time for me to unwind a little bit.

  4.  Going boating.  See that boat that's docked, that's Paul's parents' boat that we like to take out.  We stop at local eating establishments on the lake even though I typically pack a cooler of drinks & goodies.  I love boating, it probably is my favorite summer activity.

  5.  Being a porch monkey.  I love sitting on the front porch whether it's to eat or read or visiting with neighbors.  If I'm seen out there, people will venture & then we chat into the night & maybe enjoy some ice cream or drinky-drinks.  

What are your favorite things about summer?


  1. I'm a deck monkey! Haha and you should post about what you're reading!!

    1. I just love being outside when it gets nice cuz us Wisconsinites don't get many nice days to enjoy.

      I'm actually reading Paper Towns right now & I really like it. :)

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
