I know Wednesdays are usually Happy Days, but I just couldn't get a post done. We were busy until 10pm on Tuesday night and the last 10 days have been nothing but run and rush, so I postponed Happy Day til today. Hope you weren't all sad yesterday because of it.
Before we get to the challenge, I felt it was completely necessary to share my current situation with you...plus I just love posts like this.
Sipping on coffee...first cup. Joy.
Thankful for friends, books, my husband's job, answered prayer, the hope of a prayer list, and long talks with my sweet little brother.
Enjoying my dining room table, the homemade table runner on it, and the old fans, hydrangeas, and metal tray on top. (Don't you wish I would have taken a picture? :))
Reading A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay. Not my favorite book of hers. Almost done, then I think I shall read To Kill a Mockingbird...it's been too long.
Excited for LOTS of books to start arriving in the mail soon! I got all my books ordered for school. After they get here, I'll start planning an outline of my next school year.
Also excited for summer guests!!!!!!!
Relieved to have a new (to me) car. One car is just not as much fun as two. I ran pointless errands yesterday just to cruise a little bit. It was awesome.
Needing time to work on my (very tiny) Summer line for my shop, organize some things, do some art projects with the kids, and work on my blog look a little bit.
Wanting a cinnamon roll. Preferably the Pioneer Woman sort.
Desperately missing my camera. She's been at the spa for over a week and it could still be another TWO weeks. They were really backed up when I dropped her off, but she needed a cleaning so bad. Turns out sand inside your camera is a bad thing. I'm feeling almost jittery without it though. I find myself reaching for it, then I start sweating. Desperately missing.
Watching nothing. All my (two) shows are over for the season. Mad Men was sort of a disappointment til the end of the season, then they got better. I'm waiting for Downton Abbey and The Killing to get their second seasons on Netflix.
Fixin' to wake up Sophia to get her ready for camp, go workout, and slllooooow down a little bit. I just feel like these last 10-12 days have been rushed, rushed, rushed. My kids can feel it too. We're all over it. Time to slow up the time train a little bit. (can you believe I just said "fixin' to"???!!!)
Listening to Brandi's new album, Bear Creek. I just love that girl. If I could trade pipes with anyone, it would be her...or maybe Florence...but probably Brandi. Who doesn't want to have a little yodel in their voice??!!
Also missing my brother. I love him. He's such a cool guy.
Ignoring the laundry room, the checkbook with receipts bulging out, and the garage with STUFF everywhere.
Content with some unknowns in our life. I feel ok about not knowing everything. Peace like a river, y'all.
Happy Day Challenge a Summer fun list...you know you want one.
That's right, your challenge for this week is make your SUMMER FUN LIST!!!! You can do it on paper, a chalkboard, or paint it on the wall...if you're seriously hardcore summer lovers.
