Hello Friends and Happy Monday to you!!
I hope you had a lovely summery weekend. In between some rainy times we had lovely weather here and got some fun in the sun. My kiddos spent a night at their friends' cabin and Hubby and I even had some quality one on one time. ;) I also ran some errands and got work done on some of my projects when it was rainy weather - yay for progress! Now on to this week ahead...
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:
It started out a bit rainy and foggy, but is looking up as I see bits of sun. It's supposed to hit about 80 today and be 70's most of the week. Chance of rain and storms mid week though.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:
english muffin with peanut butter & honey - vanilla iced coffee
RIGHT NOW I AM:
Enjoying some peace and quiet. My daughter is off playing with some friends. Planning out the week ahead in my planner and looking further at my projects in progress.
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:
I see sun really starting to shine now! Looking forward to a beautiful day!!
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:
Pretty tidy. Some areas my kiddos need to pick up. I need to throw in more laundry yet. I have the dining room table taken over with one of my projects! ;)
ON TODAY'S (& this week's) TO DO LIST:
Annie soccer practices and games. Going to go visit my MIL. Bring dinner to my FIL. Devotional time done for today and some exercise time. Will get in more workout later. Annie gets braces on this week and she's so nervous! Lol She's growing up too fast! A few other appts and errands this week. More work on a big project - will share more soon.
I'm interested to dive into some books by Susan Mallory my friend Carrie has recommended. I'm also intrigued by Louise Penney books after seeing info about her on the show Sunday Morning and may add her to my collection too.

My handsome Grandpa. He was 6'4" - had naturally curly hair and the best laugh ever! He would have been 100 years old in August. I'm taking old war scrapbooks of his and preserving them into new pages in a new updated scrapbook for a family reunion later this summer. A true labor of love.
