I can’t remember the last time I didn’t work for an entire week without being on a vacation. It’s been a bit of an adjustment.
So while I wait for the phone to ring before giving up and actually cleaning the house, here’s a random Five on Friday from my week.
We’re trying to readjust her schedule a bit. The four a.m. wake up calls are getting old. She’s not happy but my husband is hoping if we make her stay inside until daylight, she’ll stop the incessant complaining about the humans not opening the door in the wee hours of the morning.
Did read another book on my 18 for 2018 book list. Requested it from the main library and quite a relic arrived at my local branch for pick up. Remember checking books out of the library like this? If you do, you probably also remember microfiche as well *shudder* Let’s all take a moment and in this case, say: Thank you, modern technology!
THREE: Speaking of Modern Things, I Attempted A Selfie
Used the actual camera so I’m not sure it counts. Also, stepping way out of my comfort zone sharing it on here. While reading Staying Stylish by Candace Cameron Bure, I realized I’d been getting pretty lazy in the whole getting ready for the day thing. So I’m trying to do a bit better.
Fixed my hair and put on make-up on Tuesday. (Please ignore the background, no idea how to make it prettier without moving to a new house and that’s not likely to happen.)
FOUR: Pass the pumpkin, please
So, this summer loving person must confess. I made pumpkin muffins to start the week on Sunday. In my defense of that, my nephew stayed over and he likes pumpkin muffins. Then, on Tuesday…for the potluck edition of our Bunco group: I took pumpkin spice cookies!
I adapted an old pumpkin chocolate chip recipe saved from a PTA leadership magazine. I may share the recipe later when it’s truly the fall season. Oh, that’s in two days isn’t it? Maybe I’ll share the recipe next week.
FIVE: One Final Summer Hike
This guy also wanted to soak up some of that late summer sunshine. And a quick forest “bath” so check another item off my summer bucket list (kind of…I wanted to take the kids for that one but school started too soon for us all).
Fall starts on Sunday. How did you spend your “official” last week of summer? Wonder how many of you are going to answer by saying decorating for fall 😉
