I Like Thursday #214

 I have been missing in action lately.  I have been cleaning, packing, or doing yard work.  Welcome to my 214th I Like Thursday post.  Each week a group of bloggers share things that they have found that they like/love during the week.  Thank you LeeAnna of Not Afraid of Color for hosting weekly.

Summer is speeding by, and zucchini, fresh tomatoes and corn are always on the menu quite often.  I like Macaroni Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing by Cooking Light.  I throw in shredded chicken and olives and add more veggies.  

 Recently I found my favorite Macaroni salad at work.  Many years ago when I lived in Portland, and worked as a bartender/waitress one of my favorite foods on the salad bar was the Macaroni Salad by Reese's which was locally made.  

I have spent some time at my daughter's house, looking at property nearby, and just relaxing.    I will admit I have a seriously case of lust regarding my daughter's hydrangeas.

I also like sitting by the river with the kids while they wade.  I get to bathe my tootsies, and sit and relax. 

Bobbin and I went hiking at the nearby State Park to see Ocqueoc Falls.  

I have done a lot of packing, there is much more to do.  I hope to get my house to the point where it is ready to list in 3-4 weeks.  Right now the smaller house is ready to be put up for sale and I am waiting on the real estate agent.  

I am still working a lot, and there is a ton of yard work to do all the time, not including just watering to try to keep my poor plants alive due to many days of high temps and high humidity that made the "feels like" temps miserable.  I still manage to get some reading in though.

The Gray Ghost Murders by Keith McCafferty is the 2nd in the Sean Stranahan Series set in Montana.  I like the outdoor themes, fly fishing, tracking.

Dead Man's Fancy is the 3rd book in the series.  

I finished reading the Cajun Country Mysteries with the final book Cajun Kiss of Death by Ellen Byron.  

Finally I discovered the Beatrice-Hyde Claire Mysteries and have read 3 more of the books.
