1. It's National Splurge Day...what's something you might splurge on today? What have you splurged on recently? 

Honestly I can not think of anything I have splurged on recently or will splurge on today. However, we haven't turned our air conditioners on yet and after 18 years in the house we keep waiting for them to not work. So we might have to splurge on that. 

2. Do you have a beach bag? What's in it? Is a trip to the beach on your summer bucket list? Do you have a summer bucket list? 

I can't say that I have a beach bag. We don't go to the beach very often but we do go to the ocean and walk around but we don't actually go down to the sand. We are not planning any trips to the beach. 

Well Adam, Gabby and James are going on a cruise this week and around the 26th we will be going to their house to watch the dogs. The dogs will be staying with others before we watch them. Then in July we will be watching James and the dogs while Adam and Gabby go away for a long weekend to celebrate their anniversary. That's not a bucket list but it will be happening this summer. 

At the end of July we are driving to Montana to visit with Amber and Dylan again. We will be going to the Great Falls Fair and we will be seeing a Rodeo. I guess that could be our bucket list. 

3. What's a song that makes you think of a summer past? What comes to mind when you hear it? What memories does it stir up for you? 

I can't think of anything the stirs up memories. However, I do love DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince "Summertime" song a lot. 

4. Sushi-yay or nay? Have you actually tried it? If you love it what's your go-to order? 

Nay on the sushi. I have tried it and I'm not a fan. 

5. I own a ridiculous amount of __Christmas ornaments. It is well over 1,000_. 

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Adam, James and Mark. 
We celebrated Father's Day on Saturday evening.


A bumblebee James made and gave to me to take home.

1. June 12 is National Simplicity Day. In what way is your life simple? What's one way that it's not? 

Interesting question. Right now I do not have an answer for this question. 

2. Something you remember from a 'simpler time'? 

I remember when Sunday dinners were with family almost every Sunday. Those were beautiful days when family would gather each week. 

3. Do you like squash? If so what's your favorite variety? What's a favorite way to prepare squash? 

I have liked eating squash and I did make something years ago with squash but I don't even remember what it was. 

4. Do you shop the warehouse stores (such as Costco, Sam's B.J's, etc)? If so how often do you go, and what's something you always buy in this type of store? 

Yes, we shop Costco. Mark shopped there on Sunday. I didn't feel like going. We probably go every other month. We buy all of our meat at Costco along with other items like wine and vodka. We also get some fruits and vegetables along with my string cheese. We always have a long list. 

Something I started doing a while ago is ordering things online from Costco which makes the shopping trip easier. We just got a delivery the other day. It is 2 day shipping. That would be toilet paper, detergent, nuts, power bars, k-cup coffee and a few other things. Usually things that just take up space in the cart. It's free delivery for a certain amount of money. 

5. Father's Day is this coming Sunday. Any plans to make the day special? Tell us something about your own father, or something about your hubs as a father, or about someone who stepped into your life and acted as a father if yours was not a part of your life. 

We are going out Saturday with Adam, Gabby and James. We are heading out to their house. It should be a nice evening. 

My father was a lovely man. He had a very kind heart. I don't think anyone could ever have said anything but kind words about him. I miss him so much. He passed away soon after the pandemic started.
