The Weekend Wrap ~ June 7th

weekend wrap 1

It’s pretty strange, but right now, the last six months I feel like time is rushing by me! The days slip by, and look, here we are and it is June! How the heck did that happen?

On Saturday I drove down to Mandy & Matt’s house to spend time with them and my grandchildren. It was another scorcher of a day and as soon as Savannah opened her birthday presents, we all slipped into our suits and jumped in the pool.

Since my Dermatologist lectured me the last time about sun exposure, I wore my swimsuit, a rash guard, and a silly all-covering sunhat!

I have to tell you all, swimming with Mandy, Matt, and the kids was just what I needed!


It was a lot of fun watching my two little fish! Both love to swim and play and swim some more. I was in for a while, but once I was out, I sat drying, watching them all play around. It made me smile.


I just love being with the kids. They make me laugh and smile and seeing their happy and healthy faces, well, what can I say? It makes the care that we all practiced the last year or so during the Pandemic, was worth it.


The 140-mile round trip was definitely worth it! I wish I could have stayed longer. But, not right now. Too much happening here.

Arnie is doing really well. I cannot believe how this mixture of cranberries and herbs has changed Arnie’s health. He is like a whole new dog.

Jack is going in tomorrow (Monday) for the injection into his hand. He has Dupuytren’s Contracture, and he is having an injection that will help it and in the end, give him better use of his hand.

He also needs to have his blood work done, so I’m driving him all around.

I hope wherever you are you can stay cool. Most of the US is in a heatwave. In the upper 90s, with high humidity. Ugh! But it could be worse. It could be snow and below zero temperatures, so I will take the heat!
