We’ve crossed the summer equinox here in the North. The days are long. Though here in Canadaland, they aren’t quite warm yet. Some days are, mind you. It just depends on how you define “warm”. It was 18 C today. For us, that’s warm. If you live in Lebanon, you’ll need your winter coat. My O’s still suck, but I wouldn’t be a true fan if I only rooted in the good times. And I made mozzarella pepperoni stuffed chicken this evening that was totally delicious. You should check out my instagram to see it. You can follow me there, too.
SUPERishDAD tells about a meal before and after having a child. If you’re a parent you’ll totally relate. If you’re not a parent, enjoy your ignorance.
The Lupie Momma writes about the etiquette I wonder about twice a year- that gift bag for the kid who came to your kid’s birthday party.
Watching our kids grow through the school can be rewarding. Even more so when your kid has ADHD. We do what we have to do to help them have a successful year.

Jess at Wonderoak illustrates how she is learning to parent while parenting. Sometimes you just don’t need to rush. Sometimes waiting is all that’s required to survive, especially with a strong willed child.
Counting tomorrow, we still have three Monday’s of school left. We go the whole way through June. Though teachers and kids are starting their summer wind up. It’s close enough to smell, too far away to touch. Like the cookies in the oven. We don’t have any plans set in stone yet. Except for beaching, camping, hiking, kayaking, bon firing, and baseballing.
Do you have any summer plans?

My Orioles are 22.5 games behind 1st place so I’m not even going to bother wasting space talking about them here. Just know that I’m a die hard fan and will root for them win or lose. Even when they’re better at losing. They’ve lost more games than the first place team has won. I’m spiteful enough to not even name the first place team. Or the second place.
It was a good Sunday here in the Wood house. Crash mowed our neighbor’s yard. Then he mowed our yard. Color me impressed. Meanwhile, his brother couldn’t be bother to put his laundry away. Oh well. 1 for 2 is still better than the Orioles.

It’s Sunday of a long weekend. We’ll be singing Happy Birthday to Queen Victoria tomorrow. It’s been raining all day here and now that it’s 6pm I’m just want to put on pajamas and stuff my face with Double Stuff Oreos. It’s fun to make quadruple stuffs with them. Perhaps I’ll just open ALL the cookies, scrape the delicious innerds in a bowl and eat it with a spoon. Or just dip the cookie in it. MMMM Oreo dip.

I hope all you mothers had a fabulous day. Whether you got breakfast in bed, supper from your significant other, handmade gifts or store bought gifts or gift cards, hope it was all in the name of love.
Today in church when Father asked all the mothers to stand for a blessing, I stood up, too. DW laughed so hard she was crying. She thinks I wasn’t listening, but really I just wanted to show my support for all the moms.

Welcome to May. The sixth of May to be exact. Just a reminder that next weekend is Mother’s Day. Now’s your chance to plan something. Or set a remind to call your mom (or, at least, someone’s mom).
Our gardens are happy again. I mixed some compost and peat moss into the soil. Then I planted three new rose bushes. Our veggie garden got an upgrade when I added some fruit. A strawberry plant and blueberry bush. May summer come soon and may my plants flourish like the weeds I know I’m going to have to pull.
While we’re waiting for the weeds to grow, here are some good reads…

Apparently, M is for mystery. I looked all over town yesterday for it and couldn’t find it at all. My get up and go got up and went taking my motivation to write with it. Oh well. I found it this evening. It was in the bag of chips and bowl of salsa that I just devoured.
Here comes a new week. Lets make the most of it!

I skipped The Share last Sunday in lieu of the A-Z Challenge. Sorry ’bout that. I had a successful week to start the challenge, though. I didn’t miss a single letter. I didn’t use a wrong letter, either. In light of a successful week of challenging, I thought I’d share some posts I read during the challenge that I think you should read, too.
I’ve got nothing else to do, anyway. It’s snowing and it’s going to snow for 8 inches. Snow day predictor says there’s a 99% chance school will be cancelled tomorrow. If it is, I’ll go for a run at 6 am instead of packing lunches.
Stop laughing, DW. I’m serious. Mostly.
