Hello my Friends!
Happy Monday afternoon. ;) I'm a bit late to posting today, but it was a busy morning and then I just got back from picking up my daughter and niece from soccer and my niece is sleeping over tonight. It's truly the start of summer vacation over here and no more school for my kiddos!
We had a full soccer weekend here. My Boys were out-of-town for my son's tourney and Annie and I were here for a her local tourney! It was a fun girlie weekend with lots of bonding time (with my Mom too). Now on to this week.
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
Beautiful and sunny and in the 80's! Looks like a couple cooler rainy days after that and then nice again by Thursday.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
Some toast and coffee
RIGHT NOW I AM:
In my office and listening to Celtic music on Pandora and working on notes in my calendar for the week.
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
Looking at the gorgeous day out and thinking Ruby and I will need to go for a walk pretty soon. ;)
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
Overall pretty tidy. I want to get another load of laundry in though.
ON TODAY'S (& this week's) TO DO LIST:
The kids are on their regular soccer schedule for the summer - so they have practice during the day certain days of the week. My son will be working for my hubby the other days as his summer job. Both kiddos have soccer games this week. I may go visit my MIL tomorrow with Annie & my niece. Need to do some errands this week too including groceries. I need to finish planting some flowers and work on some house projects!
I'm looking at some books I've had on my ipad and finally going to dive in for some summer reading.
ON THE TV TODAY:
I think I have some cooking shows taped. I have some movies taped too.
ON THE MENU THIS WEEK:
MONDAY: pasta leftovers, salad
TUESDAY: BBQ meatballs, cheesy potatoes, mixed veggies (cookies and cream pudding bars for dessert)
WEDNESDAY: probably breakfast for dinner, but not sure yet. Need to get groceries this week
THURSDAY: easy night due to sports
FRIDAY: grill burgers or brats, caramel apple salad, pasta salad, baked beans, chips
WHAT I AM CREATING AT THE MOMENT
Etsy store albums and canvases
Legacy box stuff
My Grandpa's heritage album
My Mom's album & my family album catch up
(this is my continuing list)
NEW RECIPE I WANT TO TRY THIS WEEK:
Not sure yet - I guess I'll see what getting groceries this week brings.
TIP OF THE WEEK:
FROM THE CAMERA:
My Mom and I visited my MIL last week and she was in great spirits!
Some of our girl bonding time included a nice fire on the deck - with s'mores included of course!!
Lots more soccer action these days too.
Summertime of course means Annie's back to her tricks on the trampoline (front flip)
And a slow motion arial flip for fun. ;)
