For today...Wednesday, July 11, 2012....I had all intentions of doing this this weekly again but I see the last time I did this June 19th so not so much I guess!

On My Mind....Since last writing, my uncle passed away on June 23rd and we buried him today ( he was cremated).  It was bittersweet for so many reasons; he had suffered so much towards the end that it was just a relief that he finally went.  My cousin and her son did a nice job eulogizing him.

Outside My Window...  According to the weatherman, we're expecting some record heat over the next couple of days.

What We're Reading...I just finished reading Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater over the weekend and was TOTALLY addicted; I picked up the second and third books (Linger and Forever) today at the library and am envisioning the same thing happening...Tucker is really into the Hardy Boys and I am having mixed  feelings.  I am glad he has finally found some books he is enjoying and that he wants to read but I miss reading with him.  During the school year, he reads one himself and we read one together but he is full throttle into these himself and I don't want to discourage him in any way; it took  so long to get here!

What We're Listening to...I'm almost finished with Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel.

What We're Watching... So You Think You Can Dance,  re-runs of Big Bang Theory....watched all the Harry Potters on ABC Family this weekend and also Teen Mom and a Hoarding Marathon.

I am Hoping...that work stops being so stressful.

Around the House...dishes waiting to go in the dishwasher...lots of laundry waiting to be folded.

Coming Up This Week...Actually a pretty quiet week...Tucker will probably have a friend over this weekend.
