Five for Friday 6/28


{Apparently, Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching is at the beach. I wish I were in her shoes - or not in her shoes, since she probably is at best, only wearing flip flops, since she's at the beach.}

Rain! I think that should be RAIN! Friends, this has been one dry part of the country, but that seems to be changing. We've had rain Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and again last night. Last night was a good, hard, long rain - and I made my poor hubby go out in the middle of it and turn off the automatic sprinklers. Now that's love!
Painting - College Girl and I tackled one wall in the living room yesterday. 
Yes that's me in my groovy painting outfit!

Well, my picture doesn't do it justice, but it's a beautiful green. As soon as we started, College Girl and I both said "I like it!" It's the perfect color for me in my living room - light and sort of foresty like. This wall hadn't been painted since we moved in - and College Girl's lived here her whole life - so that tells you something. 

My online class is still trucking along. For next week, I need to make a video - but not recording myself. So I've been working on that this week, and I'm fairly happy with how that's turned out - unfortunately, I'm such a perfectionist with these types of things, that I keep messing with it. But basically done, and basically happy about that!

Netflix is a beautiful thing. College Girl and I are watching high brow shows like:


Well, West Wing might be high brow, but I'm not so sure about The Office. Anyway, one of these is always our lunch date, depending on our mood. 
Well, I can't be too envious of Kacey at the beach - my family is heading to Vancouver on Tuesday.

 I can't wait! We've got each day sorta sketched out and once we get there, we'll plan for certain. If anybody has any ideas, you are more than welcome to leave a comment :)

Happy Weekend!

    1. I'm sure we will - however, I haven't even started packing. It's going to be about 20 degrees cooler than here. That's hard to imagine!

  2. Have a wonderful time together!

    1. I'm very excited and my hubby thinks it's humorous that we'll be in another country for the 4th. Not sure what all we're going to do - but looking forward to it!

  3. Have a wonderful trip! I have never been to Canada before, it looks beautiful! We painted most of the house a couple of years ago...I'm so glad we did, it just looks so much fresher.

    1. I've never been to canada either, or the northwest, so it will be a new experience.
      It's amazing what just a coat of paint will do for a room. We were just saying again yesterday as we moved back all the furniture, that we really liked it.
