TWITL – week nineteen – cherry picking

TWITL – week nineteen – cherry picking

After a week of summer-like weather, Saturday morning was nice and cool. My cousins came out to pick some cherries and we met them at one of the ranches. We have lived out this way for over a decade but we’ve never gone cherry picking. It was a little chilly to start but it warmed…

TWITL – week eighteen – so much warm sunshine

TWITL – week eighteen – so much warm sunshine

Why does it feel like spring doesn’t last as long as it should out this way? I would love two weeks straight of temperatures in the 70s. Is that too much to ask? Apparently it is because these days are in the 80s or even warmer. Alas! The work week after my birthday was only…

TWITL – week seventeen – half a century

Happy Birthday to me! I spent the day off from work. I watched Captain America Civil War then Thor Ragnarok. Just had to get my MCU fix because if this was any other year, I would have probably been at the movie theatre watching the latest MCU movie. I did get out of the house…

TWITL – week sixteen – springtime joy

The A’s had a winning streak that was snapped the other day. It was fun to watch some of the games and to see them win. I still feel a bit distant from baseball. It’s taking me a bit of time to feel its allure… The hubby played some corn hole on Saturday morning. It…

TWITL – week fifteen – lovely spring time

We had our 27th wedding anniversary on Friday. TWENTY-SEVEN years! It sounds like long time (and it is) yet it doesn’t seem that long ago. Someone asked what the secret of our long lasting relationship is and the hubby answered beer and lots of love. Truth! We went out to dinner at Black Angus for…

TWITL – week fourteen – a new tattoo and other musings

My new tattoo is now upon me! This one took a little over an hour and oddly enough didn’t seem to hurt as much as my last tattoo. Is it because we chatted while he was working? Was it because my body knew what to expect? Perhaps it was the artist’s touch? Right now it’s…

TWITL – week thirteen – warmer days

TWITL – week thirteen – warmer days

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter Sunday. Mine was spent watching a bit of baseball, finishing up a book then reading a rather dated romance novel (even though it was written in the late ’90s). Saturday was our fun day of the weekend. We woke up early enough for the farmers market! We had…

TWITL – week twelve – warming up too fast

TWITL – week twelve – warming up too fast

It’s only been spring for a week and the weather feels like it’s trying to skip it and go right into summer. I know some people want to do that but I do not. Spring used to be my favorite season but it just never seems to last long enough to savor. Summer-like weather follows…
