Welcome Summer

United States
June 21, 2022 10:42am CST
Happy Tuesday and Happy first day of summer I have mixed feelings about summertime mostly the negative is associated with the heat and humidity. I do like that the days are lighter longer and we have sunlight until at least 8pm. With today being the longest day sunset won't be until 8:30pm. It's nice being able to sit outside after dinner and I have a citronella candle that keeps the bugs away. Today started out sunny but now it's getting overcast and probably will rain at some point. My knees can forecast weather changes and they hurt today so I know it's going to rain. At least they aren't predicating snow We have another new driver in the family. My grandson passed his drivers test this morning and he's excited. My daughter in law sent me a picture of him holding his brand new drivers license and he has the biggest grin on his face. That means only 2 younger grandkids aren't old enough to drive and since they're only 13 and 14 we have a few more years to go. There's not much else going on today. I'm busy filling up a few boxes for donation and have a pick-up scheduled for next Monday. I changed my mind about a few things and I'm going to list them on Ebay and see if they sell. A few dollars in my pocket would be nice and if they don't sell I'll still have the option to donate. Now I just need to take a few pictures and get the listing done. What are you doing for fun today???

Congrats to your grandson passing the driver's test. I still remember how excited I was when getting the license. I don't like Hong Kong's summer. It's too hot and humid, plus the tropical storms. Autumn is the best season. It's dry, cool and sunny most of the time.

Autumn is my favorite season too. I like moderate temperatures where you can go out without a coat bit it's not freezing cold

I played a few games on my phone and still trying to empty one or two boxes that were stored for the remodel of our kitchen. I'm sure sooner of the foods in them have expired and will get out into the trash. I have two hours before I head to work so I'm still going to accomplish something. I did wash some dishes and brought laundry up so that's a plus.

@Marilynda1225 I used to play candy crush and some other match three games but now I play June's journey which tells a story slowly. June is a would be detective who keeps getting involved in situations that need her brand of sleuthing. While waiting for the next segment of the story you look for items in each scene. You get 'coins' for doing that and then you build a garden which then allows you to move farther into the storyline. I figure it should help keep my mind sharp because you have to memorize where the objects are in each scene to find them faster. I also play Scrabble and that's it for right now.

We went out and watered all the outside plants, bought a watermelon from a guy on the street and then I went to bed this morning. Pretty woke me up twice asking me questions... I don't remember what she was asking now, though.

My children learned that I could never be held accountable for anything I said yes to if they asked when I was asleep Hope you enjoy your watermelon and that it's nice and sweet. I actually have one on my grocery list for this week

@Marilynda1225 Usually, she wants me to get up and take her somewhere. With my eyes swollen almost shut, I can't drive, so she left me alone. We have to finish the one that we already started before we can cut the new melon. You could come over and help us finish the other one first.

@DaddyEvil I'd b happy to help you eat that watermelon I remember back in the "old days" when all watermelons came with seeds and my brother and I would have a seed spitting contest. My mom always made us eat our watermelon outside. I'm surprised that none of those random seeds ever grew new watermelons

Your grands are growing up aren't they? I hope that he is always safe behind the wheel of the cars that he drives. Nothing exciting here, I worked, now that is behind me and I will start supper soon.

I can't believe that all my grandkids can drive now except two. I pray day and night that they all stay safe behind the wheel. Personally I think 16 is too young to be able to drive here but this grandson is 17 and not a wild teenager.

@Marilynda1225 I feel the same way. 16 is such a young age given the responsibility that comes along with driving a vehicle.

@Juliaacv even 18 seems too young to me these days when it comes to driving. But so far all my grandkids got their permits and licenses young and most of them have already been riding stufff (ATVs, riding lawn mowers, etc) since they all live in a very countrified area and there isn't much traffic.

Well I got one of the Marco's low carb pizza bowls. I guess that was the fun for today. I had a mystery shop lots of driving.

Never heard of Marcos low carb pizza bowls. Was it good? Lot of driving doesn't sound like much fun but hope your mystery shop went well

@Marilynda1225 I screwed up getting there. Yes, I have had them before. Marcos is a pizza chain, but I don't think they have them everywhere.

@snowy22315 I didn't know Marcos was a pizza chain. I thought you had a frozen pizza bowl from the supermarket.

Congratulations to your grandson. I hate the first day of summer because the days will start getting shorter again. :-( Nothing much going on here. I am setting up my husband's new phone and entering his contacts. Stay cool!

I agree about the days getting shorter even if it's hardly noticeable at first. I love that it stays light so long these days. Hope you hubby enjoys his new phone and that you get yours soon too

We don't really have long evenings here. I loved the long twilights in Ireland but I wasn't there for the very short days so perhaps I wouldn't like them so much.
