Game Night with Arwen..

Improv 101 Finale...

Glad my husband can fix stuff....

The strawberry harvest is over, but I loved every last bit!  And I frozen enough to add to lots of more bowls of oatmeal.  (Frozen strawberries are too mushy to eat straight but they are fine in something: smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, etc.)
And, no, I didn't photoshop the heart.  I just noticed it when I cut the berry in half.  :)

This Day Last Year - Sunburn

Beware of weeding while wearing a racer-back shirt!

My sister spotted it before it started hurting (thank you!) and so I got it slathered with the sunburn/aloe stuff in time.  It didn't end up peeling, or even hurting that much.

I figure it is the closest I'll ever come to wings, at least in this life!

But I'd still advise you to cover up and/or wear sunscreen for those early forays out into the garden!

Happy Anniversary, Fr. W.!

One year ago today, one of my favorite students was ordained!

Here I am kneeling, after having received his blessing.

(His other claim to fame is that he helped me name this blog....)

Happy Mother's Day!

Thanks, Mom, for so many blessings, large and small.  God has given me many, many gifts, and you are definitely one of my favorites!

This Time Last Year - Hail

The last hard frost date in our part of Nebraska is supposed to be May 10.

This is hail from May 9, last year:

And this is why it is always hard to tell when to plant our garden!

Biking Resumes!

My husband and I biked to work together for the first time this year. 

Not gonna lie - a wee bit sore.  But worth it.

We left early enough that we didn't have to hustle, and I really enjoyed it.  I'm also treating myself - on the days I bike, I can skip my lunch-time walk and read the whole hour if I want to.  So that's a nice relaxing bit of the day to look forward to.

Here's to sun and summer!
