I will be back to regular postings and writing hopefully next week. Our celebrations are coming to an end soon. This week it was our 25th anniversary, we actually snuck out to dinner just the two of us, last Chamber Orchestra concert, last day of school, and senior breakfast. We are eating take out far too much but also trying to get in healthy snacks between all the birthday cake, birthday cheesecake, and celebration cakes. I am caked out and I LOVE cake.
I just placed a $500 grocery order. We haven’t really grocery shopped in 2-3 months so I was in need of everything. Tons of meat and seafood – salmon, steak, ribs, shrimp, and chicken breasts were in my cart. Cheese – my house is never without cheese and we had minimal cheese left. I needed it all. I was making dinners in my head for the coming weeks. I see salads with shrimp and chicken. I see tortillas with veggies and meat grilled out. I see sheet pan dinners and slow cooker dinners as the days get warmer and we are spending more time at the shore or outside.
I really want to spend more time on the beach this summer. Last summer we almost never went to the beach and I could feel it in my soul. I am a water girl. I need to be near the water to rejuvenate and center myself. I can feel it when I have been away from the water too long. Just sitting by the water and listening to it calms me down. I love it. Last year we went to our porch with all the Covid fears. This year I am venturing out – fully vaccinated!
This is the first official weekend of tourist season in our area. After last year which was pretty much non-existent it will be interesting to see what this year will be like here.
What are you looking forward to this summer?
