Food 4 Thought Friday ~ This week's questions:
Breakfast What is spinning in your head right now that you can't get out?
Lunch What are your summer plans?
Dinner What plans fell through this week?
Midnight Snack What was special or different about this week?
Recipe of the Week (instead of your recipe for life what is it just for the week?)
Breakfast What is spinning in your head right now that you can't get out? I feel so overwhelmed right now with so much to do that I don't know where to start! SS lesson, YW lesson, talk for sacrament next week, overdue AMI blog post, race to organize, laundry, cleaning, headstone, family newsletter, and on and on and on. I just seem to be putting out which fire is the hottest at the time. I am also worried about my son that I just dropped off at the school for a two day basketball tourney in Pocatello who didn't feel well, but he won't say a word to the coach.
Lunch What are your summer plans? Trying to find some good priced tickets to Hawaii so I can go there on my birthday (the big one) with my mom and visit my two boys who are working over there this summer. Other than that, it will be a pretty quiet summer.
Dinner What plans fell through this week? I was going to adopt a shelter dog and went to get him but he had been rescued by a non-kill rescue program and was not available. In the end I was glad because after careful consideration, I think I needed a smaller dog.
Midnight Snack What was special or different about this week? Monday was Memorial Day and so we spent it together as a family. We went to the cemetery to remember Tyson in the very cold wind and rain, then sticking with tradition we went to Bert's Cafe for breakfast with my parents. It is always a tough day, but so grateful for the great memories that were made with Tyson while he was here.
Recipe of the Week (instead of your recipe for life what is it just for the week?) Something I read on a FB post this week said, "It isn't what happens to us that determines our reactions, but rather what we think about what happens to us. We must let go of our dogged determination to see the worst in situations, and instead change our perception to expecting the best. Our own perceptions create our reality." So true, so true.

And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to catching up on so much I am behind on, go to an Elder's Quorum party at the park, tomorrow my plans include I would like to go to Pocatello and watch my son play in a basketball tourney, but not sure it will happen, hoping to get in a long "walk" since no running yet, and prepare my lessons, and Sunday, I want to do a good job on my Sunday School lesson AND the Young Women lesson I was asked to teach! Chill when both are done!

FRIDAY 5 ~ SUMMER
1.What was your best summer vacation like? I have had a few. I loved the Oregon Coast but I also loved Hawaii and Puerto Rico. I used to love going to California with my grandparents each summer to see my cousin Shelley in San Diego and then my other cousins in Sacramento. I have such fond memories of those trips. On the way we always stopped in Las Vegas and hung out at Circus Circus.
2.What was your worst summer vacation like? I can't really think of a vacation that was bad, so I will say when I was in high school and I went with the school band (as the Majorette) and Lakettes to the Calgary Stampede and our hotel was a cockroach Inn! We couldn't sleep. We bought Raid and all slept on the bed for fear of being attacked by giant roaches! Yuck! The trip was a blast however!
3.What food or drink reminds you of a particular summer? Watermelon and strawberry lemonade.
4.What summer-only activity do you now look most forward to every year? Being able to do my runs in the warmth without wearing layers and layers of clothes! I also really look forward to the summer rain! :o)
5.What summer movie or summer reading are you most looking forward to this year? I honestly have no idea what movies are coming out this summer, but I am looking forward to seeing the Broadway production of Mama Mia this month! As far as reading, I hope to finish the Hunger Games series.

Happy Friday everyone!
