Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Due to travels, holidays, etc. it has been a while since I have joined in with Carissa at lowercase letters for Miscellany Monday, but today seems like a great day to share the miscellany of my life, so I'm linking up! Here is the randomness of my life:

1. My gardens need to be weeded, bad. I got to the vegetable garden this weekend, but I stlil have 2 that need a lot of attention.

2. My zuccini plant is dying :( I'm not really sure what happened to it, but I don't think it is going to make it. I only planted one because I know that 1 plant (if it lives) will provide you with more than enough zuccini. But now I have zero.

3. While I was weeding my vegetable garden this weekend, I pulled up one of my blueberry plants thinking it was a weed and threw it away. Only after I was finished and had the blueberry plant was buried under a ton of other weeds did I realize my error :(

4. Besides my gardening woes, I had a lovely weekend. The weather was beautiful and I got to be outside and in the water for most of the weekend. My idea of a perfect summer day is being in sunny warm weather, while I am somewhere where there is water so I can cool off.

5. (Kind of goes along with #4) I took some LCA friends canoeing yesterday. It was the perfect day for it and such fun. We paddled, floated, stopped to swim, skipped rocks, and didn't even tip once. On all of my previous canoeing adventures I have been in the front of the canoe, but this time I was in the back so I had to learn to steer. It was a little rough at first, and I was defnitely nervous as we were floating backwards down the river, but I did figure it out and the rest of the trip was great.

6. I have begun studying for my principles of engineering exam that I will take in October, that I will hopefully pass and that will make me a licensed professional engineer. There is so much that I need to relearn between now and then that I feel like I need to spend every bit of free time I have studying.

7. I really love the people that I lead young life with. There are 5 of us, and everyone has been scattered all summer. Saturday night we got together for dinner and to hang out and it was wonderful. It makes me excited for August when everyone is back for good and we start seeing each other on the regular.

8. I also really love the LCA students that we hang out with. They too have been scattered all summer. I look forward to school starting for them so I get to see them on the regular as well.

Well, I think I'm running out of steam, so 8 seems like a good place to quit. Happy Monday everyone!
