    Loveley weather today so dragged the garden furniture out of the shed, oiled the wood and set it up. Then had the in laws over for a BBQ. Had to run into the garden room when the heavens opened and we had a thunderstorm for an hour. Now watching a James Bond movie and sipping a Martini or two!

    Our lawn mower broke a few weeks ago...hubby & friend basically had to replace all the pulleys, so I mowed today. After that we spent the afternoon outside...

    We finished up on June 15th and I made a promise to myself that for the first few days I was just going to relax...get into my ''summer'' mode and really just enjoy being home for a bit..not even working my computer job this weekend..i'll start that up again on Monday.

    All I did today was just lounge around my apartment, sat out on my deck, did a little cooking and watched tv...tomorrow I have plans for breakfast :)

    I am home today..its uncomfortably hot outside..we have an air quality alert as well so I have been indoors eating, watching tv and relaxing!!!! I'm enjoying an Italian Ice right now while surfing the internet.

    Tomorrow will be a busier day. I have a family dinner to go to, my cousin graduated from Nursing school so my aunt is having everyone meet at a local restaurant for an early buffet style dinner to celebrate :)


    Then I begin week 3 of Summer school Monday!!!!!!!!

    Thanks! It is a bummer, but at least I should be pretty mobile in a walking boot by the time school starts again so I won't miss any work (old building, no elevator, third floor classroom).

    I went to the Drive In movies. Ghostbusters was really good. The Shallows was ridiculous. Don't waste your money!

    TeacherNY, Shallows was one I wanted to see too, but didn't yet. I was hoping it wouldn't be cheesy, but guess it is.

    Well, it depends on what kind of movies you like but let's just say even though it was supposed to be scary, all I did was laugh. It was really annoying too when the characters were talking on their cell phones or texting and shots of the screen kept popping up all over. I was actually cheering for the shark at one point. :rofl:

    - got stuff at Rite Aid
    - got couple things at OfficeMax
    - picked up clothes from cleaners
    - went to grocery store

    We got up and ran to Sam 's club. It was storming. We stopped for bfast, shopped... longer than we planned because we could hear the rain pounding on the roof. Lol. We also stopped for lunch. Came home and sun was out!! Threw a frisbee after dinner for a few mins before the mosquitoes came out!

    This weekend, I will be:

    - Visiting my husband's grandmother.
    - Catching up on grading.
    - Getting ahead on lesson plans.
    - Cleaning my house.

    I've gotten a bit behind this school year. My course load is kicking my butt.

    Last night (Friday) went out for a drink with a girl from work. I met a guy online, invited him to join us. He's an English teacher at the nearby high school - we totally hit it off :)
    Today I ran errands, then I'm going dove hunting. Then a date with the teacher.
    Tomorrow, get my hair done, and then possibly some more dove hunting (season closes in 5 days). then cook my lunches for next week, chores and relaxing.

    Next weekend deer season starts, so I'll go up in the mountains (Shaver Lake) with a friend and his daughters, stay the whole weekend camping, hanging out and hunting. Can't wait.

    So nice being able to have the windows wide open today!

    I spent a good chunk of time yesterday reading (had to finish All the Missing Girls) and catching up on some much-needed sleep. Today, I'm doing laundry, doing some marking, fine-tuning my first math, geography and science units, and doing some meal prep for the week ahead.

    Lovely day here, too! We slept with the windows open, and it got down to the high 40s last night. It was wonderful. This afternoon I am watching football and then heading to school.
