June is Busting Out All Over!

Hooray! June is finally here. I am ready for warm weather, cookouts, picnics...it's always about food for me, isn't it? I really look forward to summer, except for the bugs and the sweating. Gosh, I'm whiny today! Aren't you glad you took time out of your busy day to read this?

On Friday evening, I set out with seven members of the musically talented Coldwell clan to attend a singspiration in Kingfisher, OK. Our church fellowships with a number of churches in Oklahoma. Victory Baptist hosts an annual evening of gospel music, food and fun. Kingfisher is just west of OKC, so it took us approximately 2 1/2 hours to get there. The trip was worth it, though, there were a lot of very gifted people there.

The evening was highlighted by an abundance of rich voices. Great accompaniment was provided by guitars, bass, clavinova and even a harmonica solo. Songs ranged from traditional hymns to contemporary Christian numbers. Our church brought four songs to offer. We had a great visit with folks we hadn't seen in months.

Have you seen any summer movies yet? The Hubster and I made a little jaunt to The Balcony at the Warren Theater East on Saturday afternoon. Matinee time with "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian." The Balcony is the only way to see a film, in my humble opinion: cushy seats and a full menu. I am spoiled!

This movie was a lot of fun. As much fun as the original, just with a new spin. This time the museum exhibits make a trip to Washington, D.C., where they will be housed in storage, never to be displayed again. Of course, hilarity ensues. We especially liked all the new characters that were added.

The Hubster's mom and her best friend, Miss Pat, brought by a huge fresh fruit basket yesterday afternoon. What a treat! This is one of the things I love most about summer. We snacked on cherries and bananas yesterday, and for dinner tonight we supplemented a rotisserie chicken from Dillons with a huge fruit salad. Fruit is not only tasty, but loaded with antioxidants and vitamins. Now that the Ark City Farmer's Market is opening this week, we're hoping to have a regular supply of fresh produce all summer long.
