I’m low on blogging material right now. Have others found it harder to keep up their blogs once the warm weather hits? There just seems to be so much going on that I’m not finding the time to put into this right now. I hope it is just a short phase because it is a bit dispiriting. I love blogging and I love being part of this community. How do I get the momentum back?
I’m happy to tell you about my friend Jason’s new blog The “Germ Guy” Blog. I met Jason many years ago when I was a microbiology graduate student at the University of Ottawa. I moved away from research and microbiology to work in a science regulatory environment, but Jason has been working hard with his research and has been busy making a name for himself with his down to earth and easy to understand explanations of hygiene and the importance of microbiology in our lives.
I’m a soccer Mom and I’m still not sure how that happened. Regardless, the Hawks played their last game this evening and they lost…..again. What is the opposite of undefeated? But I am joking as they did win ONE out of their ten games. I’m honestly surprised they didn’t win more games, because they had some very skilled 5&6 year old players who played their little hearts out and never got discouraged. The coaches were always encouraging and kind. I’m going to miss Tuesday’s spring evening gatherings at the park with some beautiful children and lovely families. Better luck next year, Hawk members!
Have you tried Bud Light with lime yet? I’m embarrassed to say it’s surprisingly good. But in a beach girlie drink sort of way, not as in a real beer. At a recent gathering I attended, one woman was drinking one, and was so surprised when she found out what it was. She had thought she was drinking pop. I will be stocking up for cottage week.
I am off work on Thursday for Canada Day and I have decided to take Friday off too. But here’s the kicker: my girls will be at their day camp for both of those days. So now I have two whole days to myself. I am giddy with excitement and now I’m trying to figure out what tasks to knock off my To Do list, while still having some porch time with my book. I may tackle my front garden which is just a complete embarrassment right now. Or I may not. I’m feeling tired out and I need a bit of a rest.
I’m looking for some good summer reads if you have any suggestions for me. I like some lighter fare in the summer so please let me know what you have liked recently.
So yeah. Sorry for this yawner of a post. I will try to do better next time. Honestly. Please come back again when I am smarter. Why is this so hard??
