Oh y’all we are having the MOST wonderful weather. The extreme summer heat is behind us and I am practically giddy about it.
I actually worked in my workshop on Saturday morning and sweat did NOT drip into my eyes, thus blinding me from being able to see if I was drilling holes in the right places. The older kids helped me work and the little ones played in the yard while I pretended the heat wasn’t coming back. I like to psyche myself out like that. You know those people that tell themselves they have to be somewhere 30 minutes early so they’ll be on time. I tell myself the heat is gone so I will be more productive.
I had to stop mid-day to have lunch with some friends. I hate to tell you this because it might make you think I am spoiled, but I had lunch out 4 days in a row last week! It was the weirdest thing. I haven’t had lunch with a friend in like, a year, then all of a sudden BAM! I’m like a New York socialite.
My lunch date on Thursday was with 3 of my daughters at a local Mexican place. We were thrift shopping and they needed to run some errands, so we made an afternoon of it. I picked up some fun, little things at the Habitat Restore while we were there. I used this cool junk in a post for Life Your Way today. But you’ll have to go there to see what I did. You’ll love it.
But since you’re here I’ll tell you this…..I got a few other things for future projects too!
I picked up these really cool old metal napkin dispensers. I’m planning to do something for the boys’ bathroom with them. They don’t have a key, so I thought, “Oh, that will be easy enough to find a key for them.” Um…no. I stayed up late Saturday night searching the world wide web. I had no idea that there are like 250 different possibilities for keys for these things. I’m not sure what to do, but I am sure I own 5 towel dispensers that I have no use for because I CAN’T OPEN THEM!
Excuse me. I got a little frustrated there.
On Sunday I was just so glad to have a whole day at home that I stayed in my pajamas all day. What with so many lady lunches and all, I needed a rest. I hung with the kids, filled a few shop orders and took a nice long nap. It was one of those lazy, do nothing days that I long for the rest of the week.
And now we’re off to another fun-filled week at The Point. School, cooking, laundry, piano lessons…you know, the usual.
Have a blessed week!
