For Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop this week, I chose this prompt:
1.) Ten To-Dos in June
June is a super-busy month for us. The first three items on my to-do list are now on my “done” list.
1.) Celebrate my friend, Bev’s, birthday.
2.) Celebrate my birthday, which is the day after Bev’s.
3.) Celebrate my in-law’s 70th wedding anniversary, which I posted about yesterday.
4.) Welcome my niece, Donna, her son, Connor, and their friends, who will be visiting next week from Texas. This will be their friends’ first trip to our area, so we’ll be busy showing them around. Wondering about the background in this picture? It’s the framework of the monster truck, Gravedigger. His shop is about an hour and a half from us, and a few of Connor’s trips to Virginia in the past have included a visit to Gravedigger’s Dungeon.
5.) Have lunch and catch up with a relative (distant cousin) that I haven’t seen since we were children. She lives in New York now, and will be in town next week. We plan to have lunch and fill each other in on the last ** years.
6.) Celebrate Marshall’s birthday (June is THE month for birthdays around here).
7.) Celebrate Father’s Day. My dad died when I was only eight months old, but we’ll honor Motor Man’s dad. And of course, Marshall will celebrate with his dad and with Motor Dad.
8.) Head to the beach.
8.) Enjoy downtown Smithfield during Olden Days. This is a small town festival, held each summer. It features classic cars, crafts, entertainment and lots of food.
9.) Be at our local short track for Saturday night racing.
10.) And last, but not least, capture as many sunrises and sunsets as possible.
Our family sure packs a lot into a short month….
