Summer Weather, Spring Days....

The weather has been gorgeous here the past few days. Yesterday, we left the office about a half hour early and headed home to enjoy the 80 degree sunny weather. Kurt took the dogs for a walk on the property (our land is really muddy right now and I hate getting dirty so I did not join them), and I pulled out one of my lawn chairs and read my US Weekly that had just come in the mail. It was nice just to be outside. However, I must have been tired because I came in the house and proceeded to fall asleep for 3 hours. Whoops.

Got up this morning and headed to the eye doctor for my yearly appointment that they force me to have or they will not turn over my contacts. Bastards. Nothing with my prescription changed, so I bought my contacts and left. New thing which was kewl, they offer a discount for AAA members! It was only like $17 off, but I will take it! Went to the grocery store next since we had NOTHING, or close to it, in the house. Saved over $12 with coupons I cut out, and even more with store sales. I stopped at the fresh fish counter and asked if they had tuna, since there was none in there and they did in the back! Whoot! I wanted to make fish tacos, and tonight, I am going to make this Chinese dish I found at the grocery store, but use Tuna instead of chicken or beef as the recipe calls for. We then went to the pond store to get fish and turtle food for the pond, then went to the tree nursery because we are going to buy trees to line the driveway (I think Kwaanzan Cherry and maybe Bradford pears), went to Lowe's to buy dirt, then to Tractor supply to buy bird food and suet.




Home now watching the draft and hoping the Lions make some good picks.......Need to go work out as I have been super busy this week and slacking on that front. Also need to do some laundry and cleaning, but am liking this chilling and enjoying the weather more than doing housework.......

Wishing safe travels to all the people I know who are out of town! Misty is in Vegas, Stacey is in Phoenix, and Rebecca is visiting Lea in Ohio! It's an out of town kinda weekend I guess!

What did you think of the Lions draft pick?? Matt Stafford is my Georgia boy (go DAWGS!) I hope Detroit treats him well.

Hold on to that beautiful weather while you can... we had a gorgeous work week with sunny skies and temps in the 70s and 80s. It all came to a screeching halt yesterday... rain, drizzle, clouds, and 48 degrees all day long :( I know our weather usually travels your direction next. So sorry.....

haha, I love immaturity, LOL.

And a lot of Lions fans did not like the pick, Megan. I am hoping Matt proves them wrong, but they are thinking that he might be the next Joey Harrington.......We watched him in the State bowl game and he played horribly so it makes me kinda nervous since State was not even that good. Hopefully he was just having an off day that game.
