Books and Bathing Suits

BooksWe love Sunday afternoons.  We spent several hours today at Barnes & Noble.  We love to hang out in the big comfy chairs and read together.  Jesse picked up a few business books that he had been wanting to look at, and I read a few magazines and a book I brought from home.  Currently I’m reading Karen Kingsbury’s Firstborn Series: Family.  She is my favorite author, and I am making my way through all of her books.

We also enjoy watching the funny people that also hang out there.  Such as the woman in the corner that was completely passed out the entire time we were there.  Then there were the two old men sitting across from us who kept falling asleep, and one of the kept making funny throat noises.  And all the people who like to talk very loudly, like they don’t realize it’s quiet and that everyone can hear them.

Then, on a less relaxing note, we went bathing suit shopping… again.  I know it’s getting late in the year for bathing suit shopping, but there are no choices.  I have been looking for a while and still can’t find one.  I can’t just give up either because vacation is in two weeks, and the one I have now has gotten all stretched out.  So, I did end up getting one, but I’m not very happy with it.  But I figured it was better than nothing in case I don’t find another one before vacation.  We’ll see if I end up keeping it.

Life’s a Beach

We had an awesome day at the beach today.  The weather was so perfect!  The temperature was great, not too hot, and a consistant nice breeze.  We needed a day like this to just relax.Day at the beach

We had planned to get up early to beat the crowds there, but that didn’t quite happen.  We had a lazy morning, but it didn’t matter much because the beach was still empty when we got there.  However, it did start filling up quickly after that.

We were remembering another Memorial Day weekend we has gone to the beach while we were dating.  It was freezing, and the wind was so hard the sand was blowing in our faces.  Much better experience this year.

Creepy Crawley Critters

BugIt’s not really that I’m afraid of spiders, roaches, or other bugs…It’s just that I don’t want to see them, especially in my house.  So, obviously Jesse’s job is to save me from any critter that creeps into the house.

As I walked toward the kitchen tonight, I noticed a small, dark spot in the middle of one of the tiles.  I sneaked up on it to see what it was.  As soon as I got close enough, the tiny, little frog jumped right at me.  My reaction was, of course, to scream.  Jesse didn’t flinch.  He just asked “what is it this time?”  He then followed the froggy into the kitchen to catch him and put him outside.

That reminded me of my favorite bug story…

I was upstairs in the office, on the computer.  Jesse was downstairs watching TV.  I looked over and saw a spider crawling right beside me!  I’m laughing to myself just thinking about it.

I yell down to Jesse “spider, spider, spider!”

He yells back to me “are you serious?” (I thought he was implying that I didn’t need to be yelling about a spider)

I said “yes, I’m serious!”

Then I hear him RUNNING up the stairs… (very concerned about the spider)

I was totally confused when I saw him… with the fire extinguisher.

He said “where’s the fire?”

I couldn’t do anything but laugh.  And keep laughing.  He didn’t find it quite so funny a that moment.

He thought I had yelled “fire.”

I’ve learned my lesson.  No more yelling spider!
