GOOD MORNING sweet friends. I hope you have all had as great a week and weekend as we did. The weather has been PERFECT and even though I haven’t gotten everything accomplished I wanted to, I did get enough done for now. 🙁
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING The weather has been unusually warm for this time of year here and unseasonably dry too, but after such a wet winter I’m not complaining.
That said, I’m glad we leave on our trip later this week and the temperatures will be cooler which I soooooo much prefer. Note the 29 degree difference on Thursday.
We’re going to take the last trailer full of wood to the re-cycler (there’s a local guy who will chip up all the cedar pickets into mulch) so I have on old Levi’s, a t-shirt and pops. Then I’ll change to head into town for errands.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE Peach yogurt, hot water and a banana.
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE, WEEKLY TO DO LIST, HOUSE & CRAFT PROJECTS, APPOINTMENTS
- LAUNDRY… one load before we go
- LIVING AREAS… a bit of tidying
- KITCHEN… pretty clean
- YARD… YAY! hubby finished the fence!
- BLOG… nothing much for a couple weeks while we travel
- CRAFTS/PROJECTS… nothing at all for a few weeks
- APPOINTMENTS… Tire rotation, fill up on gas, pedicure, mammogram
- TO DO… last minute errands, pack…
ON MY MIND / THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY We leave later this week for our family reunion trip later this week and we’re REALLY getting excited! We have a side trip planned on the way there AND on the way back besides visiting with hubby’s elderly father.
SOMETHING INTERESTING I WATCHED We rented Serenity with Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jason Clarke and Diane Lane. Such a different part for MATTHEW!
I’M READING Kristin Hannah’s Night Road that my friend Heather loved and recommended I read. It will be perfect for vacation 😀
WHAT IS ON THE DVR, I LIKE OR ON THE LIST TO WATCH things will build up while we’re on our trip so I’ll sort it out later 😀
FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA Hubby finally finished the fence!!! What a feat. This was the last leg of the 300+ linear feet. Fortunately the 100 feet to his right was done 4 years ago by our neighbor. His feet are killing him from working in the rocks so our vacation is well timed.
