Friday. The weekend is here! Do you have anything fun planned? Or is your calendar blissfully clear, allowing for uninterrupted leisure activities? We are a mix of both, I suppose. Tonight we are boating and tubing with some friends. Tomorrow during the day is free, then after mass Steve and I are going to get our second Shingles Vaccine! This is date night in your 50's, friends! Actually, though, we are going to dinner after with my bestie Heather, who also happens to be a pharmacist. Hence, the jab. Sunday is free until after dinner when one of my favorite weeks of the year begins. Any guesses? Madeline? Any guesses???
Yep! Shark Week! I have always enjoyed making ordinary days extraordinary, especially when I had a houseful of little ones. Shark Week was a fun week during the summer that we could look forward to and enjoy together. After an evening outside, we would shower and bathe, get dressed in fresh, clean jammies, and gather together to watch a program about sharks. Yes, we could do that any other time of year. But the excitement of knowing many other people were doing the same thing made it much more fun. Sometimes we would have special snacks or wear new shark shirts too. My kids are grown for the most part, and I may be the most excited now, but they humor me. And so, a modified version of Shark Week is still a thing here in our house. If you want to join in, here is the schedule.
Have a wonderful weekend with your people, my friends. Stay cool and cozy! Leaving you with some phone photos of the past week here in Pennsylvania. We met this duck family while we were swimming off the boat. They were not a bit shy!
Thanks for visiting!
