Where did Summer go?
|Several birds made a home (and bathroom) on my front porch. Though it is my favorite part of the house, I didn't get to enjoy it this Summer.|
Normally, I walk in greeted by a messy kitchen, hungry kids and cooking shows or "Big Bang Theory" on TV. The living room doesn't look like a tornado hit it. I don't have to ask if the dogs have been out or fed. (Only a 50/50 shot they did that if they were here, but I asked anyway.) The dirty laundry fits neatly in the hamper.
It's quiet. Too quiet. Now I have no excuse for not getting things done unless I am at work. I love my new position designing kitchens. It's like night/day from the appliance desk!
I did get to spend some time with the kids doing silly things. We binge-watched "Big Bang" and had a movie night when "Sharknado 2" aired. LOL, I am told that it is technically "better" than "Sharknado." Thank goodness the only thing that can happen to me is the occasional "beenado" when the bees swarm...though I suppose a "carpnado" isn't entirely out of the question here in Ohio! We spent part of a day at Put-In-Bay, a popular Lake Erie destination/tourist trap.
Getting two kids off to college was a challenge: Audra is a Senior at Ohio Wesleyan Univ. studying music and Taylor is a Freshman at Univ. of Cincinnati studying Engineering. He is in the band and I am hoping to get tickets to see him when they play Ohio State in a few weeks. Audra is preparing for her Senior french horn recital the end of September. She's wearing a gown and everything!
|Taylor's favorite meal this Summer--Raising Cane's. It's good, but a bit greasy. Fortunately, there isn't one close.|
I am working up some new posts, but thought I'd give you an update---
Until next time!
