The Week So Far

I am still enjoying my summer break so much, I love having the time to putter around the house and relax.  The perks of working a school schedule job. I still have a list of things to do before school starts and am slowly accomplishing them.

The firepit that I turned into a planter definitely needs attention!

Tuesday:  Morning walk with Cricket for a mile followed by some weeding one flower bed. Target was having a Summer markdown sale on their patio items.  We went yesterday and they were pretty well picked over.  I picked up a few groceries and spent $24.00. 

Dinner for the family was spaghetti and seasoned bread.  I ate spicy sausage with sauteed shredded cabbage, keeping it keto.

Wednesday:  Morning walk with Cricket for 1.7 miles before the heat of the day kicked in.  I met a coworker for coffee this morning.  We both work at the same elementary school and work together in the same department, which is even better!   During our summer break, we like to get together every couple of weeks or so and chat over a cup of coffee.

After coffee, we went to Hobby Lobby to check out the marked down Spring and Summer items.  75% off on most items in the category was enticing and I did leave with a few small items, bubbles for the grandkids. I spent $2.50.  There were other things in my cart, but I did not end up purchasing them.
My daughter and her husband ran a few errands in the afternoon and I watched the kiddos in the pool for about an hour.  After that, there was dinner, and I listed a few things on eBay.

Thursday:  Bloodwork early this morning for a dr appt on Monday.  I was at the lab by 7:30 and home by 8:15.  Good service and the stick was painless.  I am anxious to see what the results are, hoping that they are still in the normal range.  Did some housework, vacuuming followed by a light mopping.  There was a couple of hours of listing and packing items for eBay, almost at 600 listings, shy by about 10.  Maybe that will be accomplished by this evening. Now to figure out what's for dinner.

Dinner was a salad and Cricket and I  did get our walk in.

How is your week going so far? 


  1. Sounds like a lovely week. Very relaxing and fun. How nice that you have a buddy to get a drink with and I love that you put things in your cart and then realize you don't need or want them. I do that all the time.

    1. I do the cart thing all the time. Put stuff in, then talk myself out of it and go back ang put it up.
