Welcome back to my place on the internet. I pray that you enjoy my time capsule of memories from May as I join Jennifer and friends for "Share Four Somethings".
Something Loved: May included some much-needed time off and 2 trips!
1. I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend in Chattanooga with my daughter, Rachel. It had been quite a while since we had time together, just the 2 of us! We had so much fun as we explored a bit of downtown Chattanooga and enjoyed a Mother's Day lunch at Tony's Pasta Shop and Trattoria. The food was as delicious as we remembered from her college days! We even rode the carousel!
2. May is always special, because of our wedding anniversary! This year we celebrated 34 years at a lovely tiny home AirBNB near the Land Between the Lakes area in KY. It was so restful and peaceful!
Something Read: I've really enjoyed the "Dearest Dorothy" series by Charlene Ann Baumbich. Here is the description from Amazon: "On the outskirts of the pastoral Illinois town of Partonville, Illinois, eighty-seven-year-old Dorothy Wetstra lives on her farm, venturing out to drive around in her 1976 Lincoln Continental—affectionately dubbed “The Tank”—play bunco with her pals, or grab a stool at Harry’s counter, where she can stay on top of the town’s latest shenanigans (most of which she is responsible for).
But when a visitor comes to town with a proposition, Dorothy finds herself faced with a decision that could change her beloved town, and her life. Before long, her gift for shaking things up may come in handy . . ."
It's a fun, easy read with loveable characters mixed with a little "drama". A great read for the summer. I think I found the first 2 through my library to read on Kindle and had to buy the others from Amazon. Here is the link for the whole series on Kindle through Amazon and the link to Good Reads for the correct order of the books.
Something Learned: I have known how to crochet for years, but I'm trying out a new pattern and there is always a learning curve. I'm grateful for Bethany being home Memorial Day weekend to help me get started. It's been a while since I've crocheted in the round, but it came back quickly. Here is how it started and how it's going. Stay tuned to next month's edition to see if I've finished it yet or not.
Something Eaten: While Jonathan and I were away, we ate at a restaurant that had the most delicious bread. It was my favorite part of the meal. I've never had bread served in a flower pot/crock before and had strawberry butter to slather on top!
