Six on Saturday - June 29th

Almost July already!

1. Yeah - just one room to go in our screen and window washing project. It happens to have the most windows though.

2. We took our local son and DIL to a Sunday matinee performance of Peter and the Starcatcher at our local volunteer run live theater. Then out for Vietnamese food. Lovely to see them just a week after their last visit on Father's Day.

3. The dog got groomed on Tuesday and I found out the groomer is moving away. Yikes, now I have to find a new one who doesn't stress the dog too much.

4. I kept up with my stretching, upper body weights exercises and dog walking per my summer bucket list! Yeah me.

5. This week I didn't feel like going to my summer lecture but did watch both nights of the Democratic primary debates.

I find that if I read those blogs with links to clothing stores, I become a bit dissatisfied and will browse. I have enough clothes but I realized that I have almost no "dress shoes" as I seldom dress up.

    1. Dogs are curious creatures aren't they. Ours takes time to get used to a groomer but she does love baths so that helps a lot. Being a poodle she has to get haircuts! I have an old pair of dress shoes that aren't very comfortable and new ones are on my list once my 3 month shopping ban is up.


Week 11: A bit of a breather + tracking the true cost of moving

Two weeks to go before we move!  Just a little packing this week plus bringing the saved specialty boxes out of the attic. Found boxes for p...
