And, just like that… it is May! May is always a super busy month for teachers and parents. This year doesn’t quite look the same for me with my kids out of high school, but it will still be busy!
-I have 15 more days of in person instruction, then we have an in person graduation on our football field! (We normally go to our convention center indoors and I’m actually really excited about this change.)
-Jack is in Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors in the parking lot of his community theatre – complete with food trucks. This will be the first time he has performed since Februrary of 2020’s Pride and Prejudice.
I am happy to link up today with Heather, Tanya, and many more right here!
We had some wonderful weather this weekend. Thursday evening after dinner, I went out to my happy place and read.
Friday morning I slept in until 7 because I didn’t have school! This is my tree top view from my bed. I really want to open the blinds fully.
I did my coffee, blog, and devotional and then got motivated to get to Trader Joe’s by 8:30.
I came home and made a new breakfast favorite – a low carb tortilla with egg and cheese. I plan to add more items to this soon – onions, mushrooms, etc. I ate on the deck.
I spent some time reading my library books and the sky was as blue as blue can be!
I forgot to take pictures but my friend came over for lunch and a cocktail and to watch the Oaks race (part of the Derby). That evening we just stayed home for dinner.
Saturday morning I had my iced coffee on the deck after breakfast with my new library book.
Then, that afternoon, our friends came over to watch the Derby. I made a cocktail called a Twin Spire (named after the architectural structures at Churchill Downs) and charcuterie platters and I forgot photos!
Our friend brought his new bourbon smoker.
Then, the four of us met our friends who went to the Derby for dinner at one of my favorite restaurants that used to be a gas station.
I had the vegetable platter and it was so good!
Then, we came home and watched some tv on the patio because we kept our bedroom tv outside. I am anxious to permanently put a tv on the patio. But, this worked for now!
Then, Sunday morning it was not so cold and I had my coffee out there, too!
Then, it was time for Sunday morning meal prep and school work. I like to get things done in the morning when I have energy so I can have that off of my plate.
So, I didn’t take many pictures and as you can see the ones I did take were mostly of my deck or patio! When the weather is nice, I am outside as much as I can be!
What were the highlights of your weekend? Did you have nice weather?
Thanks for reading!
