Happy Homemaker Monday


Happy Tuesday Friends!

I started working on this post yesterday AM - but had an appointment and then ran errands and went to lunch with a girlfriend. I got home late in the day and then worked on the things I needed to accomplish around home and forgot to finish this. So I'm starting over to finish work on this post now. I sure hope that your week is starting great! 

Life has been back to normal here thankfully. Matt has been over his covid and was back to work last week. Annie has had covid since part of last week, and is finally feeling better. So, needless to say, the decision was made to wait on the Europe trip until next summer. With all the travel issues and covid around I will say I'm very okay with that decision. 

It was a really nice weekend. Matt took me out for a nice dinner and we went mini golfing. 😊 ♥️ We have fun being competitive and we bet on it. We took turns back and forth taking the lead - but he fell apart on one hole and I won. hee hee Yay! 😉  We also sat down by the water and watched the sailboats. Then Sunday we ran errands and he had my car all cleaned inside and out and even put in lavender air fresheners for me. He is such a sweetheart and makes me feel so taken care of and I'm just so grateful for our partnership.

 We also grilled up some yummy steaks he marinated and he made an amazing cucumber salad to go with it...along with other sides. I will try to remember to get recipes to share with you because it was all so yummy! 

My dock is finally in for the season. And he got my pontoon in to be serviced. So it will finally be pontoon time around here. Woo hoo! Now it will really feel like summer.

Do you have some favorite summer activities you've been up to lately, or looking forward to soon?
