I hope everyone had a lovely Fourth of July. We had a good time watching the fireworks from our patio and playing checkers of course I lost because I kept getting distracted. 😉
June was a bit daunting for me. So because the month flew by, this What I am Into… will be a bit shorter. Joining Leigh… Here’s five things about my June.
- I had my first surgery in June. It was at the beginning of June and was not a “major” surgery. Everything went well, and my hubby and family (and friends) toke great care of me. Here’s what I learned from the experience:
- Patients coming out of surgery need nibbles. I was always needing something small so I would not be taking my meds on an empty stomach. My mom, thankfully, brought a big box of yummy biscotti. She’s a pretty smart woman!
- If you ever have to have surgery, give yourself time. I was exhausted even beyond a few days afterwards. Again… Thankfully my family and friends were very encouraging for me to rest and take my time.
- I am still obsessing over the Popcast. It is still my favorite podcast, and I start listening to it before finished some of my other pending podcasts.
- I decided I will be painting my walls soon. My house is all beige and makes me sad. After watching tons of hours of HGTV and FixerUpper, I am determined to add some color to this house. Also I am going to continue to redecorate my kitchen with the Pioneer Woman’s cookware but also add in my own person touches I like of farmhouse kitchens. I have embraced the MidWest vibe and am adding lots to my Pinterest board.
- I finished a pair of socks. Yay. I am in love with the Felici sock yarn. It is released once a year (which happened this month), so I recommend stocking up! I am ready to cast on another pair.
- I started watching Death in Paradise, which has been tons of fun. A friend recommended it to me, and I am enjoying the mixture of British and beach vibes. 😉
Time flew by during June, and these are what stand out in my mind. Life has definitely been hectic! I hope you guys have a wonderful July! Be safe and enjoy our Independence.
