The high of my week was painting part of the outside of our house. Our house was built in two parts a decade or so apart. So the bottom have has a concrete look and above is siding. The concrete part REALLY needed a paint fix up so we painted it on Tuesday after about a week of postponing due to weather. Hopefully weather permitting this weekend we can do the floor of our porch and the tops of our steps! It looks so good now and starts the slippery slope of now our siding looks like it needs a touch up! New siding is a wish list, but first comes our central air (being installed NEXT FRIDAY), then new windows.. then dealing with siding and or an addition.
we also took a trip to one of our favorite local places after school this week
The low of my week was the slow process after you've gone so long neglecting yourself via eating/working out and no immediate improvements.

The book I am reading is The Last Town on Earth by Thomas Mullen. I went to start this last week but had to finish another book for the library first. So far I really like it. It's about a closed off town in Washington State during the flu epidemic of 1918.
A Recipe I made was Chicken pesto sandwich! I took canned chicken and mixed with with pesto. I cut up radishes and onions to put it on and then ate it on bread. It was delicious! I can't wait to make it again this summer and add some mozzarella and tomatoes!
The best money I spent was a new hat for the beach/boat this summer. I've wanted this hat since I saw it last summer on Zulily and they had it in stock again this year in the color combo I wanted. I'm excited for it to get here!
My plans this weekend include probably putting up our pool. We were supposed to have a day date tomorrow going kayaking down the river but the weather is not looking good so we may go downtown and have a few drinks instead. This is probably one of the last few non-crazy weekends for awhile. My husband got poison ivy this week so I'm not sure how much more yard work we will get done but we have to finish pulling out a bush/tree for the ac to go next week. A bonfire if it's not too rainy. And possibly just having a night sitting on the porch listening to the police scanner and talking. A lot of this is weather dependent. If all else fails we may just clean and watch movies ha.
What are you reading? Any fun weekend plans?
