Another Monday, and yesterday was the first day of July. Whew! This year is flying by, hard to believe it’s already half way over. It’s just hot and dry here. I’m spending most of my Monday morning outside, watering the grass, flowers and plants. It apparently rained here while were in Nashville, but we’ve been home three weeks tomorrow, and it has not rained one drop. It hasn’t even clouded up and pretended it might rain.
We had another nice weekend, enjoyed being at home and not being on the road. We had date night Friday night. We went to Newk’s and since Tim was in a healthy mood, we both got salads. I love their Newks Favorite, so that’s what I got, although I was sorely tempted to add some lobster bisque to my order (they only have it on Fridays and its soooo good!). Tim got the Ultimate, and we passed on dessert at the places next door (Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Gigi’s Cupcakes) and instead came home and had some frozen yogurt (Moose Tracks, good stuff!). We watched the next Harry Potter movie (#3 Prison of Azkaban). Actually, re-watched since we’ve seen them all, but I’m enjoying going back and watching them since I’ve been reading the books. I’m slowly plowing through book 5, The Order of the Phoenix. It’s a long sucker (901 pages, this is probably the longest book I’ve ever attempted to read).
Anyway, Tim didn’t play golf Friday so we could have date night, so he played both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday, I had good intentions about getting more scrapbook pages done and reading some on the Harry Potter book. But I woke up with a horrible headache, seemed like sinus, so I spent most of the day resting, watching a little tv and fighting that headache. We watched more TV when Tim got home, and watched “How to Train your Dragon” from the DVR. Sunday was church, although later this week. July 4th weekend is one of the “One Service Sundays” they do in the summer. After church, we went to Majestic Burger and had lunch. My favorite, seared tilapia, for me and Tim tried a new one, the buffalo chicken. Their food is always good and we’re always pleased to go there. We ran by Fresh Market on the way home, looking for figs (I cannot remember when they are in season, I hope it’s soon… I love to get some and have for breakfast!). We bought some blueberries and salad dressing instead.
Sunday after Tim got back from playing golf, we ran to Sno Biz and got shaved ice (cherry pie for me and Patriot for Tim). I made homemade pizza and we watched “Larry Crowne” (also on the DVR) and some tv shows we had taped. All in all, my kind of weekend - eating out, watching tv and movies, and a little bit of reading. I didn’t get any scrapbooking done, so that was the only let down.
Going to be a busy week. July 4th means going to the big family get-together, and I’m sure there will be plenty of golf for Tim this week. I’m just glad it’s going to be a tad bit cooler, 96 or so this week, instead of 100 and 101.
