Day 290: It’s Packers season again 🙂
Day 291: What happens when I drop a plastic measuring cup on my toe? Swollen, bruised toe.
Day 292: Opening day of football season. I guess the game isn’t exciting enough for Josh. I don’t understand. The Packers are always fun to watch, aren’t they?
Day 293: It’s almost time for the annual Worship Celebration at our church, so Janelle and the dance team are busy practicing.

Day 239: Greg working on one of his vases in ceramics
Day 240: My project. None of my kids would do the Cheesehead Santa for me, so I decided to do it myself.
Day 241: One of the Facebook groups I’m part of has a “silly Saturday” challenge every week. This week’s challenge was to do a plank in a unique place or in a unique way.
Day 242: An afternoon of working in the yard, carrying branches, left an allergic reaction on my arm. It went away fairly quickly, though, so it wasn’t poison ivy
Day 243: Another rainy day. Things were just drying out nicely when about an inch and a half fell in our area.

Day 246: My completed Cheesehead Santa

Day 194, June 1: Kaiser, our big St Bernard, has figured out which bedroom window is mine. Now, if he thinks I need to get out of bed in the morning, he comes to my window, puts his paws up on the house and whines. He leaves dirty pawprints under the window.
Day 195: Storm front coming
Day 196: Janelle has been practicing with the dance team at church every Monday evening.
Day 197: Note to self: use a bigger bowl when making a double batch of this bread. It kinda overflowed overnight. I had a bit of a mess to clean up. But, it still tasted good.
Day 198: Dinner tonight was garlic baked shrimp and roasted broccoli. Very yummy 🙂
Day 199: I have no idea what was going through my son’s head. My husband wrote the word “plastic” on our memo board to remind him of something. My son added the rest late one night after I went to bed. Who can understand teenage boys?
Day 200: Eric hurt his foot playing rugby. Somebody stepped on it, leaving it swollen and very sore. The good news is it’s not broken at all. The bad news is that he won’t be able to play in his big tournament this weekend.
Day 181, May 17, Month 6 done: I can always tell when Eric goes to Pizza Ranch. He cleans out their mint supply 🙂
Day 182: Greg and Janelle had their recital today. Greg played piano and Janelle played both piano and violin. They both did an excellent job
