GOOD MORNING sweet friends. I’m still playing catch up after our trip, but I’ll get there this week. We had a good trip and it was informative in the way that it ruled out several places and routes for us for. I took yesterday to do not much at all other than catch up with my friend and munchkins, prep parts of today’s dinner which is labor intensive, made a Pennsylvania Dutch Apple pie, dishes, vacuumed, organized, laundry… oops I guess I didn’t take yesterday off after all!
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING It’s been a tad warm in the afternoons, but with a slight breeze so not really too bad at all… for summer… 😀 This morning’s uniform is cutoffs and a soft t-shirt
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE hot water and yogurt
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE, WEEKLY TO DO LIST, HOUSE & CRAFT PROJECTS, APPOINTMENTS
- LAUNDRY, LIVING AREAS & KITCHEN… done and clean
- APPOINTMENTS & TO DO… just a couple
- BLOG… still working on some updates and new recipes
- CRAFTS/PROJECTS… ?? maybe depends on some other activities this week
WHAT IS ON THE DVR, I LIKE OR ON THE LIST TO WATCH/SOMETHING INTERESTING I WATCHED all caught up and DVR empty – summer makes TV watching just plain weird
I’M READING same book as last week – just came seem to stay awake long enough to get more than a paragraph or two read which kind of sucks since I am enjoying the book.
Love Among Lavender The Merriams #2 by Ava Miles
FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA We’re back and I haven’t yet sorted pictures, but I love this one of Multnomah Falls. I wish I knew the people in the bottom of this picture, but they gave it context either way 😀
INSPIRATION & A FUNNY
I laughed at this much… Just thought I’d share!
