A Berry Happy Hodgepodge

The end is here! The end is here! School is a mere 24 hours away from being out for the summer! I have some posts ready to go up about school and the district. They will, for the most part, go up on The Grits because, you know, I'll be grinding. LOL Hey, some things need to be said and I'm going to say them. 

Meanwhile, let's enjoy the Hodgepodge!

1. Tell us about one fun thing on your June calendar. A trip to Nashville to see DrummerBoy's band perform at the Ryman! We'd love to see y'all there but the show is SOLD OUT! Isn't that fantastic?! That's DD2's DrummerBoy on the far right.  

2. How careful are you in the sun? Not near as careful as I should be. Do you tan or burn? I used to tan nicely but now, I seem to splotch.  Do you make it a point to see the dermatologist every year? Nope. 

3. Describe a time when you wanted to 'throw in the towel'? I can't remember. I have to be really, really, really frustrated to want to throw in the towel. 

4. What's a song you love that has a day of the week in the title or lyrics? I have such a hard time narrowing some of these questions are three of my favorites: 

5. Are you a fan of berries? Yes. Which one's your favorite? Strawberries. What's the most recent berry dish you've eaten? I haven't eaten any in a dish in AGES but I have blueberries and strawberries in my morning smoothie. Which blueberry breakfast food appeals to you most-blueberry pancakes, blueberry yogurt, or a blueberry muffin? I use to love blueberry pancakes. 

6. What's something you want to do before your next birthday?  Enjoy my new granddaughter! Wait, that's already going to happen. ;) How about get this blasted house fixed?

7. June 1st is National Say Something Nice Day, so let's all say something nice here. The nicest thing I have to say right now is: Tomorrow is the last day of school!!! WooHoo! 

8. Insert your own random thought here. The last day of school! Wow! I thought it would never get here! Once we decided WAY back on Thanksgiving Day that I would not return next year, the last day was a long time coming! But it's here and I'm grateful. Stay tuned, y'all. The aunties/grandmother/great-grandmother shower is next weekend! It's going to be a blast! 

Have a great rest of the week, y'all!
