I had a bit of quiet time on this afternoon so I chose to spend it watching a movie that I had been wanting to see. I loved it - very suspenseful, perfect.
A turkey burger for lunch with avocado, tomato and spring mix was SO good! The afternoon was spent baking bread, learning to count money and even checking out a pair of Walking Sticks....ick!
A few minutes to read before the evening rush, then we ended the night with a power outage.
The sun rising is always a beautiful sight.
A colorful morning spent drawing with markers and some school work, followed by a little house-cleaning in the afternoon, and the delicious smell of onions, celery and bell pepper sauteeing for dinner.
She was insistent on going with me to the grocery store. I told her we would not break for snacks....and you can see how that went. I had a plain coffee. :)
Oh, and it was also a pizza night.
We took a little ride along the beach and then came back home to finish up the red velvet cake I made for my mom's birthday.
We awoke to a downpour that lasted about 4 days. SO much rain! We spent the dark day in our pajamas, practicing reading, then watching tv.
Oh the rain that had collected in our yard. Splish splash everywhere we went. I need to make myself buy some wellies. But, to brighten a totally dark and dreary day, Darrell came home to surprise our boys with their very own boat! They were excited and cannot wait to get it into the water. Fun times will definitely be had this summer!
Another dreary one....painting is on the to-do list for fun. And, a salad bar spread out for dinner. Yum!
We had just a bit of a break in the rain this morning. It was enough to let in a bit of sunshine to have with my breakfast. Instant mood lifter!
A busy day on tap, but I do take time to notice all the gorgeous blooms from Isaac's sunflower patch while I walk the dog. Our day includes two orthodontist appointments, a request for Steak and Shake from my two boys (who insist on hiding from every.single.picture), followed by a trip to Starbucks and Target.
A date-day with my sweetheart. We ended up going all over today, filing registration for the new boat, breakfast out at a favorite restaurant, a little Father's Day shopping, a little antiquing, then lunch at a recommended authentic Mexican restaurant and I have to say that it was the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. The day alone together was SO needed.
Honestly, there is not much going on today. A little laundry, a little nail painting, a little visiting, a little tv watching, a little more rain.
So....there is my two-fer. Two weeks that slip by so very quickly. I'm glad I decided to pay attention to the little things.
