This week has already been full of activity. Monday my parents came and had lunch with me! Look at that, my family coming up to see me within a three day period. When has that ever happened before? We went to Qdoba and then they came back to my place to hang out for a bit. I really enjoyed myself and am so happy they came. It was a nice addition to the day since that morning Shari and I went and picked up her car from the towing company, which was a bit stressful. My dad brought with him a zucchini and a squash plant for me to try my hand at growing some vegetables this summer so I am super excited about that. I haven’t tried growing vegetables in three years and this will be the first time I’ve attempted it at home. I hope I get enough sun to produce some delicious greeness.
After work I went on a walk at the nearby park before having a video chat with my friend, Edward. The days are so hit or miss right now, it’s a little frustrating. And sometimes, when the weather apps tell me it’s 55 and sunny, it feels like it’s 40. Am I missing something? The past few days have been real windy too which is a total bummer. I think I am finally ready for tank top and shorts weather! The small green buds on the trees and the thick tulip leaves are what keeps me going. During the walk I came across a Little Lending Library and actually found a book that is on my to read list, so I snatched that up. My chat with Edward was great too, especially since Kaitlin hopped on as a surprise for a few minutes!
On Tuesday I went grocery shopping, as one must, and had a video chat with my meetup group gals which always lifts my spirits (although I wasn’t particularly feeling down or anything). Elisabeth even came over to have the chat so that I enjoyed that. I got to see the cross stitch she is currently working on.
Wednesday after work I ran multiple errands before having dinner with Shari. I picked up the Positive Change Champion award I won a month ago – turns out they made a physical award for me. While I probably would have preferred cash or a gift card, it was a very thoughtful gesture and I’ll consider what to do with it. Shari and I went on a walk before making dinner, even though it wasn’t nearly as warm out there as we both hoped. After dinner we played some occulus where I worked up a sweat. I so enjoy playing that Supernatural game.
Tonight my friend, Brittany, is coming over for dinner so that should be fun. I better go prep the tofu!
