My weekend started off with beautiful roses from my hubby. A note written on the back of some scratch paper was placed halfway underneath the vase, thanking me for taking care of our fur babies. What a wonderful way for my old man to show me his appreciation! I was surprised and touched by the thoughtful gesture since my sweetheart rarely buys me flowers for ordinary moments. Little does he know that his kindly deed turned the ordinary into the extraordinary, at least in my mind anyway. Every time I look at them, I smile big and get a happiness boost.

On Thursday afternoon, Andrew and I took a ride to Covington to visit our favorite comic book shop, Big Easy Comics. We were specifically going in to check our subscription box. While buying our comic books, we learned that the store is closing up shop in October of this year due to several circumstances. Needless to say, we are bummed about the news, especially since comic book stores are far and few between, and we happen to really love this one. I had been wanting to get a board game called Wingspan for Andrew which he had spotted in the store while I was checking out and called my attention to it. I figured we should purchase it because it might not be there when we go back in a couple of weeks.

And, I am so happy we bought it. Andrew and I started playing the game shortly after getting home, and we played again yesterday afternoon. It is a great deal of fun with lots of interesting facts about birds, their habitats, their diets, and so much more. I see lots of Wingspan in my future.

As many of you know, I am participating in a Fast Burn Challenge to improve my health. Fitness is a huge component of the program, and on a few of the days, walking a certain number of steps is the goal. On Friday, my fitness goal was to walk 14,000 steps. I accomplished it along with some additional steps.

I must admit, it is easier to reach this goal when I am at work because I walk around the school campus quite a bit. In order for me to complete the number of steps at home, I walk longer in the mornings (an hour plus a few minutes) and take a shorter walk (20-30 minutes) in the evenings after dinner. In the mornings, I listen to the podcast, Levar Burton Reads, as I walk around the neighborhood which makes the first walk extremely enjoyable. On Friday, I listened to “SPAM” by Savannah Michell. Today, I also have to reach 14,000 steps. This morning, I listened to “End Game” by Nancy Kress. I highly recommend both short stories and the podcast.

As I am writing this post, I have already walked 10,224 steps. Not too shabby, dear reader. I’m grateful that I’m physically capable of accomplishing my walking goals and that I really enjoy walking in general. It is one of many things that I have enjoyed doing this weekend and this month. May is quickly coming to an end, and it has been a whirlwind of a month. I’m ready for June and all the activities that I have planned with my family and friends. What are you looking forward to in June, dear reader? Happiness!
