Friday Five: Spring, Karate and the Titanic

May the 4th be with you!  Won't be watching any Star Wars movie tonight, finally going to see Infinity War.  What are your weekend plans?

5 Thoughts

1. Yard work.. that sums up this week pretty well.  Did so much of it yesterday.  Our yard is looking better and better but still feels like such a long way to go.  We are trying to fix it right and not just a quick fix as it will make life so much easier in the years to come.  It would help if I really knew anything about plants and what half of the stuff planted in our yard is!

2. Alex had a soccer game Monday night and they won 10-1.  We haven't had a lot of wins this season, so while I was begging to feel bad for the other team it was also pretty dang awesome.

3. Ryder got his Karate uniform this week.  He is loving it and last time even got bonus tickets for being the student to the day!  Glad he has found something he enjoys doing.

4. When I was checking out our book club book from the library, I also checked out two random books.  Not only was it until I finished one and began the second that I realized that both are historical fictions about the Titanic.  Kind of makes me want to watch the movie again.

5. Speaking of movies we are finally seeing Infinity War tonight!  Have been doing everything I can do avoid any spoilers!

  1. I just finished up the last little bit of my "gardening". I had a hydrangea bush that needed the dead blooms trimmed. Poor bush had the dead blooms all winter. Yard work, for me any way, is oddly relieving! Sounds like things have been so fun!

    1. It is kind of fun, but then it feels like even after I make a ton of progress there is just so much more to do, so don't like that part of it :)

  2. Yay for Alex! And I keep forgetting you are so close. How have we not met up yet?!
    I can't wait to see infinity wars. We were going to go last week, too, but we're them told if we hadn't see the latest Thor or Black Panther we would be lost. So last week we just got Thor from Redbox. Loved it!
    I just found a book that has now made it into my top 5 favorites. It is called The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. If you need a new book to read, it was fabulous! And her writing, her words are just luscious!

    1. Yes! We need to get together for sure! Good you are seeing the other movies first, you will definitely be glad you did. And thank you, adding that book to my want to read list!
