Hello my Friends!
Happy Monday! We had a full weekend with a day out-of-town for my daughter's soccer games on Saturday. It happened to be where there is also a lovely outlet mall - so we did some fun summer shopping too. ;) It was almost 90 degrees that day, so we were happy for some a/c stores! Then yesterday was filled with errands, things around the house and groceries. And looks like another full week ahead!
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
Foggy and low 50's this morning. Supposed to get sunnier later and be in the low 60's. Week ahead looks nice overall. Around 70 most days, but some chance of rain on Thursday.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
A little treat - a piece of apple cinnamon kringle and my coffee.
RIGHT NOW I AM:
Listening to Christian music on Pandora and working on notes in my calendar for the week.
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
I was watching 2 bunnies chasing themselves around our hill earlier. It's so nice and green and all of the leaves are filled in on the trees and I have my window baskets up. Annie has her trampoline back up too and has been having such fun on that again everyday.
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
I was a bit of a slacker yesterday so I need to get some more jobs done around here today. But feels nice and calm and peaceful. Soon my kiddos will be home for the school year and I know these peaceful days will end! Lol
ON TODAY'S (& this week's) TO DO LIST:
Exercise days. Daily devotional time. Today do dusting and vacuuming and cleaning of bathrooms I didn't get done this weekend. Kiddos soccer practices. My son has a game this week. Annie has hockey practice too. They both have a soccer tourney next weekend too. Finish planting the rest of my flowers. Craft projects to complete.
Mainly magazines recently. Catching up on some new ones that just came.

The weekend before last my boys cut down some bad trees around our driveway - a lot of hard work!
