I am so sad to see June go. It means that July will go as quickly.
On a personal side of things, June kind of kicked the doors in as it came along. I had applied for a different position at school, which would have had me working summers. In addition to that, and just trying to get caught up at home on everything I had let slide, I didn’t get to enjoy those first few weeks of summer break.
When I found out that I didn’t get the position, I sighed a sigh of relief, grabbed some coffee and went to sit down for awhile. HA! I did want the job, but there were quite a few things that had be worried about the job. So, I prayed and left it in God’s hands. And like I said, felt relief when I found out.
So since then, I’ve been enjoying summer.
I did two things this month, I have never done before. I participate in a 5K Color Run. Although I walked! YAY for trying!!
I also went kayaking. And I loved that too! Life is too short not to try things. YOLO. HA… is that still hip to say? Is it Hip to say Hip?
Either way, I am thankful for these opportunities.
I had made myself a summer project list and I’m working on it. Getting a little done here and there around the place. Mainly some small landscaping jobs and working on a new Fire Pit area.
I wasn’t sure I wanted to mention, but we lost all of our turkeys and some chickens. This lil Fluffy one was the lone survivor for awhile, but she didn’t make it either. Circle of Life, but I was still sad to lose them.
We had more rain this month that usual, and we were without power quite a few times at various points. Where we are, our cell service isn’t great either, so with no wifi, no phones. After doing a few other things, the guys ended up having an impromptu Geography Bee with the map and the laser pointer!!
We were even without power on Father’s Day, just as we were about to start lunch for everyone. We postponed til dinner, but the kids were so bummed they couldn’t make Cup A Noodles without the Kuerig. lol.. Sandwiches it was.
My friend asked me to join her at an oil painting class. This was pretty good for only a 2 hour class. Wish there were more hours in the day to do more of these.
June is a huge birthday month, and most of them all at the end of the month. One thing we do, is birthdays. Always with all the local family. RC wanted an XBox One for his birthday, so we gave him one. HA!!
So we are headed out for the holiday weekend. To the lake.
I will have lots to share with you in the next few days so do check back in!
