Today I'm thankful for the tastes and signs of Summer.
Although I don't like the heat and humidity, there are certain benefits. Like "Bomb Pops" . . .
and vegetables ripening on the vine.
My mom came over and swiped the kids late this afternoon, so I headed outside to water the garden and do the chores.
I thought since I hadn't taken many pictures today, that I'd better snap a few before the sun went down on me.
Most of the morning, I was "holed up" in my retreat paying bills, balancing the checkbook and filing receipts and paperwork. It was a very productive morning, in a non-productive type of way. While I worked upstairs the kids worked downstairs picking up all their movies and toys, so they could go visit grandma later in the day. Grandma is a good form of motivation for them. lol
I also managed a few loads of laundry and got all the birthday dishes caught up. My hands will be wrinkled for a few days after all that dish washing.
I'm hoping to make it to bed again early tonight. Getting back on schedule is harder than I anticipated.
