Minutiae

Trent went to the Homecoming Dance in a nearby town. He certainly looked handsome all decked out in new duds, and his date is a real cutie. Anah and “Big J” will be going to our local homecoming dance next Friday. Trent will be there to, this time with a hometown girl . Erin and the gkids are building the sophomore float so I’ll once again go the parade to see the results. Small town homecomings generate a lot of events. There is a big Alumni bash at the local Municipal Auditorium. Daughter no. 2 is helping with that. I won’t be going.

I’ve picked chard, tomatoes and green beans and eaten a lot of them too
Made pickled beets.

Worked on family history - expecting my DNA results soon, so my interest has been ignited in genealogical directions again.

Finished the first in Ann Cleeves’ “Shetland” mystery series and liked it well enough to acquire a couple more.

Successfully moved forward with the lace sock that I had to lay aside a few weeks ago. Going to be a lovely pair of socks. Glad I gave it one more try.

Anah started saw yet another doctor about the injury sustained while throwing shot put months ago. He sent her to PT at a place in the city where it appears they are much more conscientious and thorough.

Made reservations to go to “The Elms” for some spa time.

No work on the sidewalk cracks, it’s been too damned hot!

Enjoyed the movie “Woman in Gold,” which I watched today. I love Helen Mirren and Klimt.

Practiced the ukulele most days but not much progress there. My fingers are really stiff, perhaps the knitting will loosen them up.

Looking forward to tomorrow when temps are predicted to be in the low 70’s F.
Also daughter no. 2 is coming to visit and bringing a movie, “The Book Club.” She has already seen it at the theater and thinks I’ll like it.

Saturday is youngest great grandchild’s 10th birthday celebration so will be doing the cake and ice cream thing that day.

That’s all I can come up with for now. Earlier I had more ideas on what to write, but today I’ve been rather foggy headed and unfocused, so whatever was in my head is now lost.

So, I’m off to pet Harold who is always grateful some good lovin’

Lovely picts. (Is Harold brown? Such a handsome kitty!)
I like Helen Mirren too. The Book Club was a great movie!

Yes, Harold is brown. He's a rescue and we think he is a cast off from a Havana Brown breeding program.

Glad to hear that about The Book Club.

Look at those beautiful smiles! Love it!

Ooo, a fellow genealogist! What do you know about yours and which company did you submit to?

Though my results aren't back yet, my daughter's show mostly British with a bit of Scottish and Irish. I expect mine to be much like hers. We are most excited about my granddaughter (hers aren't back yet ) because she is of mixed race.

Used ancestry because I have a tree there and they just had a sale lol

Harold is definitely Alpha cat of the 3 we have and by far my favorite.

Trent is a good looking kid and an awesome grandson, a really good addition to our family.

I like these sorts of "listy" entries. Whenever I do them I look back and think, "wow, I really have been busy!" Could have fooled me. :)

Harold is sticking out his tongue at us.

I am pleased you like it, I often think I should be practicing my writing skills, but it is so much easier just to make a list and, therefore, much more likely to get done.

I love Harold's habit of sticking out his tongue :-)

Your “not much of anything” posts are packed! I love the sock pattern. You remind me I must get some beets to pickle. They’re my dad’s favourite so I usually make him a few every year. That tongue!
