GOOD MORNING sweet ladies. I hope you had a wonderful week and enjoyed your Independence day celebrations! Ours was a quiet 4th. I helped a friend paint her new house and hubby pulled his back so spent it on the heating pad!
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING We’re still trying to narrow down “where” we are going to settle for good and are taking a small trip this week to immerse ourselves into one of the areas we are considering. And by immerse I mean walk the streets and neighborhoods, talk to the local people and get a true feel for the area. The weather was predicted to be MUCH warmer when I first started watching it, but a “cool” front has evidently moved in and dropped the temps by 10 degrees! We’re going to be LOVING it!
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE hot water and cheerios
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE, WEEKLY TO DO LIST, HOUSE & CRAFT PROJECTS, APPOINTMENTS
- LAUNDRY, LIVING AREAS & KITCHEN… pretty tidy and caught up until we get back Friday
- YARD… hubby had to sideline the gate repair with his back and will hopefully get it finished today and if not after we get back Friday
- APPOINTMENTS & TO DO… nothing but research this week
- BLOG… there are a few recipes set to post this week, but I need to get caught up on translations 😀
- CRAFTS/PROJECTS… I was hoping to get some of the garland done this past week, but it will wait until next week 😀
WHAT IS ON THE DVR, I LIKE OR ON THE LIST TO WATCH in NO particular order

FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA I spent the 4th of July helping my friend paint her upstairs in preparation for the carpet installation today. We got A LOT done! Her mom and the youngest munchkin made us a foursome for the day until the middle munchkin got home from a sleepover and joined the fun. My favorite photo was of the munchkins helping paint their brother’s bedroom. Just look at those smiles – I can NEVER resist them!
