Week Wrap-Up // Link Round-Up // Jun 28 – Jul 5

looking at the sky through the leaves of an oak tree

Alan turned in his dissertation one week ago, and wow, what a lovely week this has been.  We had the greatest dinner & a movie at home date ever last Friday night.  Alan was home both Saturday and Sunday, and he didn’t do any school work either day!!  He went for a few long runs, worked on his long-neglected novel, and took lots of naps.

Monday we hosted a casual dinner party for our Small Group.  I made Albanian qofte (meatballs), which was a hit. I also took advantage of my Amazon prime membership to order the workbooks for our next study and ship them for free to everyone in the group!

We had another picnic of Korean food in the cemetery on Wednesday.  After we ate, we laid on the blanket and looked at the leaves, and I took the picture seen above.

We celebrated the Fourth of July with lots of dogs and babies.

I also have tentatively started walking again.  I stretch my heel out for a few minutes before I leave, and several minutes after I get back.  I’m limiting my walks to between 10 and 15 minutes.  It’s not much, but I’ll take it!
