D&D’s (Two) Sentence(s) a Day for June
6/1 At Jodie Filogomo‘s suggestion, I am going to try to write a sentence a day, EVERYDAY, for this entire month. And lucky you! It seems to be two-for-the-price-of-one month…i.e., I can’t quite fit things into one sentence!
6/2 I made the rounds at three of my favorite nurseries to help my mom pick out her plants for the season. At 82, she always threatens to cut back her garden, then outplants me every year.
6/3 Love the arrival of warm weather and visiting the Niagara River at sunset! Across the river are the shores of Ontario, Canada.
6/4 We took “Bear” (the daughter who doesn’t like shopping) shopping for a new work wardrobe… I felt like I was playing paper dolls with a real person. SO much fun to start her “professional clothes” collection.
6/5 Bear started her accounting internship. I was so proud watching her go off to work looking like she stepped out of Pinterest 🙂 #proudmama!i
6/6 The mourning dove that has been nesting in my planters must’ve had a busy weekend, because there was company in her I’ll-just-drop-my-eggs-anywhere-that’s-handy nest.
6/7 I restrung my Pachysandra berm with LED lights I purchased at bargain prices the day after Christmas (more about that here)..boy, are they bright and sparkly!
6/8 As a thank you for driving more than 15 mph in a school zone, I received a “special invitation” from a state trooper. (Truthfully, though, I’m grateful to the officer for the “friendly” reminder because that’s what I’d want for MY kiddos!)
6/9 Hubs took the day off today and we worked in the yard…I needed to weed out the back of the Pachysandra berm, trim off the willows,
and thin out the raspberry patch. It all looks SO much better!
6/11 Can I just say how great it is when the kids help? We’re trying to run a hose underneath the sidewalk and we borrowed some husky shoulders to help us “dig under it.”
6/12 My mom was feeling overwhelmed by her garden plans, so I went to her house to help. Her wonderful friend had the same idea and we spent the whole day executing her plans (and I have the sunburn to prove it).
6/13 It’s way past time for my monthly closet cleaning, so today is the day. My fall or winter bucket list will include completely renovating my bedroom closet..and maybe Mr.’s, too!
6/14 I ordered an area rug for the family room. Ahhhh, the cash register ringing the sounds of progress….
6/15 Had a fun shopping day with my mom…but we didn’t get very far: stocked up on some fun shorts and summer tops at Old Navy, then on to one of mom’s favorite stores: The Christmas Tree Shop.
6/16 Pretty much spent the day shuttling the youngest in the car…someone needs to take his drivers’ test!!!
6/17 I started a new stripping project today…love this table but NOT in orange!
6/18 Celebrated Fathers’ Day with morning Mass, big family breakfast and an afternoon movie with the kiddos…then out for an early dinner with my pops and extended fam.
6/19 “Doesh” (oldest daughter and oldest child) had a birthday today. I was thinking premium distressed jeans, she was thinking $$ toward new tires… “practicality” is a very good sign.
6/20 Sometimes it’s good to need a plumber; then you can sit nearby and catch up on your blogging. The $720 bill? Not so much.
6/21 A day to remember in the Dirr household…today’s “everyday adventure” landed me here.
6/22 I visited the orthopedic Doctor, who gave me a surgery date for next Thursday, for which I already had afternoon plans. I went home, rested, then swept the floor and vacuumed to prove to myself that I could.
6/23 It was dirt, stone and skidsteer morning…and I am reduced to being a spectator (I did say that Mr. needed an “able” helper…which for now is NOT me.) Proud that my boys stepped up to help their pops.
6/24 A little side project has turned into Mr.’s big summer adventure…this “add-on” is about to become my favorite thing. Look for a post on it soon!
6/25 I was frustrated watching all the activity, so I grabbed the snips and trimmed all the bushes by the pool…can you say crabwalk?
6/26 All the kiddos started their summer counseling jobs today…the house was remarkably quiet. Hubs and I hit the sofas… well, he worked in the yard till noon, THEN hit the couch for an afternoon movie.
6/27 Everyone is back to work but me… light duty today…followed by parallel park lessons for Tee’s road test on Thursday!
6/28 It was a nesting day: set up the area rug I ordered for the family room, (yes, including furniture moving) and I’m ready to get my knee repaired tomorrow so I can get back to healing…and work!
6/29 Got ‘er done! ZZZZ. And we have a new driver in the family…Yay, Tee!)
6/30 Today started as a good day…The rugs arrived for the outdoor room. The nerve block from yesterday’s surgery kept me comfy…until it ran out…then, ouch. Actually, I mean, OUCH!!! (What a baby!!)
