2. Rain - it's raining again! We've had a week of rain and showers and only a little bit of sunshine. Plants are definitely thriving!!
3. I had to buy some birthday, retirement and congratulations cards today and when all was said and done, I filled up the punch card and got a free one.
4. Mediterranean Dip is on the menu for a little barbecue that we are going to be attending tomorrow. I'm making pita chips to go with it after seeing that a small bag of chips at the store was rather expensive!
5. Two of my good friends are retiring from teaching this year and this beautiful picture was commissioned by the school staff as a gift for one of them. It's so perfect, including so many little touches that are a reflection of her personality and her teaching.
The wonderful artist is local and went to school with our kids. (Her mom is the other retiree - do you think she'll paint a picture for her too?!)
