Tomorrow is my 9th Fathers Day without a father and DH's 7th. It still feels sad to not celebrate them. My dad's birthday would have been on June 16th, his 95th! We would schedule a combination Father's Day BBQ and birthday each year, filled with volleyball games and lots of delicious food. For DH's dad, it was Saturday or Sunday at the lake, his happy place. We'll do that for DH with his girls. DS will likely connect with him to wish him happy regards for the day. For those of you with dad's still with you, I hope you have a lovely time with them.
What else is on the docket for today besides getting some food together to bring tomorrow? I need to do a grocery run, but I've done pretty good eating down the fresh stuff and not letting things go to waste. Last night I made a huge curry with rice and naan, and we can eat leftovers today and find something for DH who had a salad and chicken sandwich as he doesn’t like curry. No baking as it is still very hot-so another pan of Rice Krispy treats will be desert tomorrow, and maybe if I can find some pre-made sponge cakes will bring whip cream and strawberries.
I'm continuing to purge clothes that no way, no how, are going to be part of my wardrobe even if I lose a significant amount of weight. Things have just shifted enough, plus lifestyle is different. Most of these are basic enough to pass on for someone else to get use out of. I have a few dresses that were worn only a few times, but I think though a few years old, seem like they are still very much in fashion as not much different than what I see in adds now. I might try and resell-dip my toes into that world if my daughters will help me. I would like to stream Youtube for background noise-like a podcast almost when I work, but for some odd reason, the TV in that room won't run YoutTube. I haven't messed around enough to figure out how to solve the issue. I do this in the kitchen-like ot have meal planning, recipes, and food hauls on when I cook or clean and it feels like I have company. I live a very boring life. YouTube personalities are sometimes my office mates as well.
I am amazed that despite the heat and no rain, weeds are growing like crazy, Hearty buggers. I need to pull the weeds out of my rocks and hostas. I am happy with how my flowers are growing and this pot, that only had four smalish plantings, are now filling out the pot quite nicely. This is the extent of my summer gardening. Remember last year all the new gardeners? I wonder who kept it up this year? I've said it many times before, I am a Farmers Market girls-not a farmer. Oh-I should stop by the farmers market this morning and I can share what is in season in Minnesota!
I'm not sure what else I'll/we'll do today. I am not opposed to getting a happy hour in with anyone that is open, but likely a quiet night at home. No fire in the back yard as even though we had a short little rain on Thursday night, things are so dry a the lake, the fire pit sits lake side and no where near anything that could start on fire with an arrant spark, but I still get a bit nervous when it is so dry and if anyone leaves the fire with the embers still hot. I'll end this schmattering of my life there and get on with my Saturday.
