D-Day  
☂ It's the anniversary of the Allies invasion of Normandy, but more to the point of this post, it's my wedding anniversary. Thirteen years ago, nolankyle and I were married and then proceeded to re-enact storming the beaches of France and a World War II-like battle for the next four years. Fortunately, we achieved peace just shy of nuclear detonation. Good Times.

☂ Summer rocks. I have lain by the pool with a book for the last week, while my kids exhausted themselves playing soccer, basketball, swimming and diving. Life does not get better than that.

☂ There were two wildfires last week; they burned hundreds of acres of land to the north and south of my house, and I can see all of the charred earth when I step outside my front door. We need rain. In a BIG, big way.

☂ The Opening titles of Game of Thrones are mesmerizing. It's like the Sesame Street mini-documentary on making crayons - I can't look away.

☂ I'm still slogging through the Outlander series. Seriously, the woman is wordy to the point of distraction. She uses a hundred words when four would really do - but I still stayed up until 1 am this morning finishing the fourth. So I guess I like them. Really, I like the characters, not the book.

☂ The first six minutes of the new season of True Blood looks... interesting. Here's the link, if you're curious.

☂ My twenty year high school reunion is in October. Twenty. Years. That makes me a little nauseated, frankly, for two reasons. One: Twenty years, and two, twenty damn years. Ugh. I hope I'm at least thin by then.

Happy anniversary! May you survive many more without hitting WWIII. :)

You are so very lucky you can sit by the pool. It's been barely warm enough not to wear a coat here -- some days. Others it's still freaking' cold. *sigh* Where is summer? It's supposed to be 25C here every day now!

My high school reunion (if there was one, I wouldn't know) would be 25 this year. Ugh. I feel old sometimes. Mostly, actually. I hpoe you do manage to lose weight and go and have fun!

Happy anniversary!

Btw, I'm glad you're reading the Outlander books. They are quite fabulous, though the first one is the best in my opinion!

Happy anniversary, honey! I hope you have a lovely, relaxing day. Make sure that Nolan treats you right ^_~

Happy Anniversary! Congrats!

And yes, I love the Game of Thrones opening. Especially the way it changes depending on what locations they visit during the episode...I noticed that when The Eyrie popped up....so cool and clockworky. I like the show a lot, too. :)

Happy Anniversary, Y'all! :D I am glad you braved the storms and battles to end up where you are today. Two Punk-a-nunks to boot! ;D

Here's to many more! *hugs you* ♥

Just wait until you start noticing the words that she uses over and over and over and over again. She also likes to describe things the same way - like eyes that are triangular from happiness. Yeah. Have fun with that now that I've pointed it out. *cackles evilly*
