Summer officially arrives next week. Wonder if the cool nights will leave then?

What have you been up to  during all this warm weather?

Been to the beach any?

Planting a garden?

This time it is your turn to fill the comment box with what activities you have been up to lately.

We have our tomatoes in and they are growing. There are some tomatoes on the vines already.  I can’t wait to eat them. There’s nothing better than home grown tomatoes.

My back has been telling me lately why I am considered a disabled veteran.

Here’s a Funny Tale for you.  I went to the VA hospital in Chicago last year for a Cat Scan on my back.

Now the test ( lights on the machine turned on) lasted 20 seconds. (The one down in Knox lasted about fifteen minutes on my head).

Now when I ordered the report, all it stated was what I had told the guy before the 20 second test.


He typed up exactly what I had said about my back and nothing else.

Seems they didn’t want to admit that something was really wrong with it. They may have had to raise my disability level some. God Forbid!

Anyway, my activities evolve around the pain level. Did managed with a lot of help to get basement area cleaned so the electrician can come in to upgrade our electric from 60 amp to 100 amp.

Maybe then the lights won’t dim when the dryer goes on.

Now it is your turn. Go to the comment section and let us all know what you are up to this summer.  Any trips planned?   Whatever it is, let us know.

Until next time,

Chelsea, I know what you mean. I haven't had to time do anything exciting either. Too much home repair. You could always go skinny dipping, if your suits don't fit LOL. Try to work in some fun. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

So far, I have had a garage sale twice,gone to one family reunion,to a graduation, and to my friends funeral. Tomorrow a graduation party, next weekend my daughter's third birthday party (which I'm still not all ready for),and in July another family reunion. Even though I don't work, I don't seem to have time to do anything but attend everyone else's events, clean house, babysit, and tend to my child. Would love to go fishing a bit more often and maybe swimming, but in order to go swimming I need to go to wal-mart and find a new bathing suit as NONE of mine fit (woman problems ahh) I did manage to plant flowers in the front of my house, but they seem to be a fail as I believe they get too much sun.

You won't get crazier. Just smile and keep working, that way they won't know what you are thinking or up to.
