Happy Monday to All!
Here we are back to a new week already! This summer is sure flying by around here. It was a busy soccer weekend for us, as my daughter had a tourney out of town. It's an amazing tourney and teams from all over the world (and refs too) come to play in it and it's truly a wonderful experience!! I think she had a lot of fun. It was nice because her cousins were in this tourney - just different ages and on different teams. So we watched some of their games too. And they came and cheered on Annie! It went fast, but it was great!
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
Sunny and in the 70's. Looks like it's going to be a beautiful day!
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
A piece of toast and a cup of vanilla iced coffee.
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
Beautiful blue sky! I just saw the garbage truck come by and grab the garbage on our block. Yep, back to real life and a new week. ;)
RIGHT NOW I AM:
In my office, listening to Christian music on Pandora. Planning out my week ahead and what I have on the agenda today. Ruby is snuggling at my feet. I think she missed me this weekend!
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
I feel like my house has been missing me too! The teenager was home this past weekend if that gives you a picture of things. Lol! My Mom spent time here too. I definitely need to catch up on laundry too. I did get a jump start on things around here when we got home yesterday. I felt so good to be home I even made a pan of brownies. Made a loaf of homemade cheese bread to go with jambalaya dinner - and got some cleaning and laundry going then. I just need to tackle a few more daily cleaning today. But my house is getting to the point where I want to give it a deep clean again soon!!
ON TODAY'S TO DO LIST:
Laundry, cleaning tasks, pick up kiddos from their summer hockey clinic (brought them this AM and they'll be done this afternoon), help my Mom with some of her flower planting she still never finished for this summer. Too busy with training her new puppy!! ;) I'm also so looking forward to getting some blog catch up time this week! I've missed visiting you my friends!! xo
I've been catching up on magazines and I'm planning to start the book Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand.
ON THE TV TODAY:
I still feel I need to catch up on some shows. I haven't really looked at what I had taped from the weekend yet. I like that about summer though - less tv time.
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
MONDAY: ravioli with leftover cheesy bread, salad
TUESDAY: breakfast for dinner most likely
THURSDAY: grill night - but not sure what yet?
FRIDAY: maybe out for dinner or leftovers
WHAT I AM CREATING AT THE MOMENT:
Scrapbook catch up. Working on some cards.
NEW RECIPE I WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:
The cheesy bread was from an old recipe I had found, but I tweaked quite a few things and made it my own. I'll probably share that on Thursday.
TIP OF THE WEEK:
I thought this one seemed intriguing. Could be a fun challenge especially for kiddos!
FROM THE CAMERA:
Annie with one of her cousins. ;)
They had a lot of other fun things to do in between games.
My hubby even bought tickets for her team to go to a semi-pro soccer game at a stadium nearby! It was a great game and I think they had fun. You can see that storm clouds were rolling in. But we made it through the whole game before the rain really hit!
The sunset before the storm.
Her team! They played great!!
