The last two days have been spent studying for my NCLEX test. Yesterday was paired with a still tingling burn and today’s was interspersed with exciting lists. Backing up…
Yesterday I find a quiet spot in our side yard which actually looks into our living room window, as we are in a basement apartment the window is at ground level. Bella spent all 3 hours sitting in the window meowing for mum to come back inside. Here’s a cute shot of her keeping an eye on me and birds around me.
Today, as I mentioned before, was a day of lists. The first one was made up of the the adventures Ben and I wish to experience this summer. They range from boat trips to Putin Bay, Kelly’s Island, Pelee Island, Cedar Pointe, Virginia Beach, an anniversary adventure, and of course my birthday in August. 🙂
The second list was a more personal one. It contains a number of the ‘beautiful things’ I wish to surround myself with in my lifetime. The top says “I will be happy without these things but they’d be nice!”. It was inspired by Oprah and her gorgeous retreat home she owns. I felt that it would be exciting to sit and ponder what beautiful things I would like to attain in my life and what I truly desire to surround myself with. I found it revolved a lot around my family, wisdom, stillness, design and beauty. I do enjoy creativity and cannot wait for the opportunity to design our nest.
Finally…yes today was a long post, sorry! Finally, baseball tonight. Lost by one but held the team at 8 runs while they had previously scored 30 runs their previous game. It was a good match up and I had a ‘ball’ playing second base…hehe. It was my usual bag back in youth ball and things came pretty naturally. Except my awkward and embarrassing tag with no ball in my glove. Oh well, we all make mistakes…still had a blast!
My adoring husband watches all my games and puts up with the repetitive call outs from the teams. Here are his choice few that we hear constantly through all 9 innings.
“Now you’ve seen it” (to the batter who just had a strike)
“Way to mix it up” (to the pitcher who just pitched a ball)…both of these quotes seem to give excuses for a screw up but that’s just my opinion.
“Wait for the one you want” (same as the first)
“Pick your pitch” (same as the first)
“Good eye” (when a player who has not been swinging on strikes also doesn’t swing on a ball)
And the best one “Let’s got ladies!” (Every inning this one is used for encouragement) 🙂
It is a great time no matter who or what is being yelled and I was sad when the 9th inning came and went…next week it is!
I’ll leave you with a picture of me and my awfully furry baby Bella.
(And yes I have an underbite because that is what happens when I snuggle cute animals…we call it dithering)
