Well T is out of school. Hopefully doing a few Summer camps & not home playing "Hay day" all day. We are going away for my birthday. Looking forward to getting away, but I will miss my 2 cats. They bring me joy. We'll be going to the beach & I hope I can catch up on my book. We got a new canopy for outside, so we have to set that up on Friday & I have to go have a new picture taken for my license. My hair is fading fast. I had colored it plum. It didn't last long. I haven't been washing my hair often. So that's what is going on in our life. We're having a 4th of July cookout & then my Dad's 80th b-day party on July 7th. Hope your June is going well. I'm sad that It's almost over.
We got a kit from Subaru for a garden to plant some milkweeds that attract monarch butterflies. So we ended up winning this garden kit. It made me really happy to win that. I'm proud that Subaru does things for the Earth, animals & nature & I have a Subaru.
Hard to believe that she is a 5th grader already. At least she won't be in middle school yet. I don't think she is ready for that. She has 1 more year at this school. Looks like she'll be doing slime camp & maybe a yoga camp over the Summer.
We planted the paper butterfly (with seeds) on Saturday from Subaru. We'll see how it does & if we get flowers that attract monarchs. We ended up planting it in a pot because we didn't have room in our garden. I'll do an update post if it grows.
This Summer will be starting this week. I'm really excited. We're going to Atlantic City, We haven't been there in a few years, I'm sure a a lot has changed. What are your plans for the Summer? I want to start walking, ride my bike, work on the garden & some other things.What would your dream vacation be? I think mine would be to go to VA to see my best friend or FL, just because I love it there. I love 4th of July too.. I need to decorate for the holiday, we are having a 4th of july cookout
The past few weeks have been stressful. I think the end of the school year, Father's day, presents for teachers, planning my birthday vacation always get stressful for me. I have a billion thoughts & ideas running through my head. My anxiety has been really bad. When it gets like that I just have to go be alone & sit & write a letter to a pen pal or write a list. I'm trying to learn to cope, but think I will be seeing a doctor at some point this Summer. Summer is fun & my favorite time of year, but also really stressful. When you have kids home making slime messes & making food messes. I want to find some fun crafts to do, like painting rocks. Keep her busy doing something. I found out that my pen pal committed suicide a week & 1/2 ago. So I'm feeling really sad. I just hope she is at peace now. Sorry for the Debbie Downer post, but I like to be real. We all have emotions & things that go on that aren't always happy.
We went on a field trip yesterday to Odiorne point state park. It was my 1st time volunteering. We went out on some rocks & looked for crabs. Some were big & the other 1s were tiny. There was 1 with orange on her, that meant that she was pregnant.
I always wanted a pet seahorse. They are so cute. We ended up going inside to the museum for a little while. We saw a blue lobster & some seahorses. They're so cool. Also went in the gift shop. I got some butterfly earrings. Tara got a few things too. It was a beautiful day out. I got a bit sunburned even though I used spray sunblock.
