Listening to the Nashville Season 1, Volume 2 CD. It’s a good one.
Watching the final Good Wife episodes. I still have 3 to go. I have a crush on Cary. (even though I just had to google how to spell his name).
Baking cookie pops for my boys last day of preschool tomorrow. Hello summer. Ready or not, here you come.
Eating watermelon in large quantities. We go through two a week.
Drinking Glowing Green Smoothies from this book. I needed some more kale in my life.
Reloading my iPod with Lyle Lovett songs after seeing him in concert Friday night. Great show.
Reading Night Circus. I’m on page 4, so can’t tell much yet.
Still thinking about Grave Mercy, which I finished Sunday. It was awesome. Highly recommend.
Planning our summer activities. Since it’s already in the 90s and only going up, inside activities are on the agenda. Pinterest, don’t let me down.
Cursing the high price of airline tickets. Was hoping to make it to Minnesota this summer, but tickets are crazy $$$. And stay-home mom isn’t exactly the highest-paying gig around. Nor does it provide too many airline miles.
Procrastinating dealing with the end of Google Reader. What new blog reader are you using?
My kids are:
Swimming up a storm with their swim team. It’s a first for all of us and it’s been quite the experience so far. I experience new depths of love for those little munchkins each time I see them try so hard on something new. I also have new shoulder pains from schlepping a heavy swim bag around each day.
Listening to Katy Perry’s Firework all the time. They put on shows with their toys (the boy uses his ninjas or superheroes and the girl uses her fairies) singing in front of a stuffed animal audience. Sometimes they have a story going along with it and, one day while listening in, I heard the following:
The girl, voicing fairy Rosetta, to Captain America, voiced by the boy “Are you fighting the bad guys today, or do you have the day off?” For our safety’s sake, I hope he is working. Those bad guys won’t fight themselves.
Watching Electric Company. Hey you guys….
Reading Little House on the Prairie (the girl and I together), Arthur books (the girl) and any deep sea creature or dinosaur books he can find (the boy).
Looking forward to reading the first Harry Potter as a family this summer. The other night at dinner we were talking about it and my girl admitted she was worried she might be scared of the ‘guy with no nose.’ (she’s seen him on posters and commercials) (and that would be Voldemort, in case you were thinking of a different nose-less Harry Potter character). My little guy, while holding a fork that was spearing a large raw carrot (just to set the scene), put his other hand on his hip and said, in an exasperated voice, “sister, it’s okay, because Darth Vader turns good at the end.”
Eating even more than normal thanks to swim team. My blender, cutting board and pantry are in constant use.
