Tis the Summer Solstice! Not sure we will be able to tell that it is the day with the most amount of daylight as it's pretty grey outside (still). I see the sun coming through the clouds occasionally and I think the weekend is supposed to be pleasant.
Like Bridget Summer is not my favorite season. I don't like the heat and humidity (especially since I no longer "sunbathe" as I did in my foolish youth - losing half a nose will convince you to not do that - lol). But, I do like the light and I do like the flowers and the garden produce. I do like the little frogs and toads that show up (not so much the slugs). And I absolutely LOVE listening to the rain in the summer (so I haven't really minded all the rain we've had this past week).
Good news! I took a walk after dinner last night with Colin and did not stumble or fall!! Woo-Hoo. We walked about 3 miles on a paved trail along the Perkiomen - a trail that Colin walks morning and noon on days when he goes into his office. The water was very high and, in places, ran over the trail. It was pretty humid and sticky... boy did it feel good to walk. Hopefully I can get some more walking in this weekend.
Fletch and I have a memorial service to attend Saturday afternoon and we plan to car shop Saturday morning (hopefully coming to a decision on what to buy). Sunday looks pretty open, but I'm thinking that I really need to do some cleaning (major) and grocery shopping (after PLANNING - what a concept - some meals for next week). Laundry, of course, always needs to be done.
This week has also brought me 3 new postcards from Postcrossing! I'm so glad I signed up for this - it has been a lot of fun. I requested a couple more addresses this morning, so will be writing some postcards over the weekend.
I'm not a big TV person at all, but I've written down some movies/shows I'd like to check out, so maybe Saturday night? And, Endeavour will be back on PBS for the next episode in the new season. YAY.
My Kindle has been acting up again...or rather books are just not downloading to it that I check out on Overdrive. I believe I've figured it out, we'll see. A book I checked out today is This One which looks like it could be good. It also happens to be the current Big Library Read - is anyone else reading it?
That's all I've got for now. It's almost 1 p.m. and I'm hoping to leave my office pronto (wish me luck). Hoping you all have wonderful weekends!
