Well, it’s that time of year . . . graduations, open houses, final soccer tournaments, and hot summer days.
My granddaughter graduated from her second and final year of a Criminal Justice course and graduated from high school on May 31st. She has begun working a summer job to help pay for college in the fall in the Upper Peninsula. Yes, she does love snow. She is really looking forward to this new adventure. I will miss her greatly but I’m glad she will have this opportunity.
My grandson is finishing up soccer tournaments and will continue to practice during the summer months. He graduated from middle school last week and will be attending a high school charter school in the fall. He is looking forward to being on their soccer team!
We’ve experienced a few hot humid days already, of which I am not a fan (pardon the pun). Some people love that type of weather, but I am not one of them. I like 60-70 degree temps, opening windows and letting in the fresh air, preferring not to run the A/C unless absolutely necessary. Of course, one special thing about summer no matter what the temperature is ice cream. Of that I am a fan! Love those Culver’s concrete mixers!
My son finished all the painting and updates on the main floor of my condo. Next will be painting the upstairs and making a few updates there. I keep telling him painting my condo is a one-time thing. I do so appreciate all he has done at my condo and is willing to complete for me. He is very detail-oriented, a perfectionist, so sometimes it takes a little longer, but I know it is done right.
My friends who lived in Colorado Springs sold their home and moved to the Dallas, Texas area. The down side to that for me is there are no direct flights from here to Dallas. Boo! I have flown very little in my life and the thought of flying somewhere and having to change flights on the way is terrifying. I have approached a couple friends about flying there with me and both are willing to do so. One of my friends lives in the Chicago area so I could drive to her house and then fly to Dallas together. This would be a plus for her too as she would get to visit with a friend she has not seen for a long time. So, I might actually fly out and see Jim and Nancy this fall. Quite an adventure for me!
