Summer Vacation(ing)


This print from Mad Kitty Media looks good in my bathroom!

School was out here about three weeks ago and already we’ve had a very full and busy beginning to summer vacation.


My college girl who attends school in Arizona came out for a visit, her twin had gone to visit her and driven out here with her, so everyone was here on the last day of high school and we were able to have our traditional last-day-of-school ice cream with all five of us.  That was not expected, but it was fun.


We moved my Oklahoma girl into her apartment just in time for summer school and then a few days later my son and I drove out to Arizona with her sister.  She doesn’t have summer school, but summer jobs.

I was able to spend a week with my dad, visiting with one of my best friends while he was at work and then a few days down in the valley with my girl before we flew home.  I cooked for both of them and enjoying being able to do so.


Crafting is my love language. Cute dishtowels for my AZ girl!

I returned home to a body that had gotten used to the two-hour time difference and my son needing to be at the high school at 6:15am for his summer workout trainings.  Yikes!

A week later and I’m finally feeling adjusted back to Central time and getting somewhat into the groove of an earlier-than-school-days schedule…well, somewhat … because I’m still not going to bed early enough to feel rested when I wake at 5:45.

Coffee and/or naps are my friend!

On the health front…I gained about 5-6 pounds on vacation, but as of this morning I have lost 2.5 of those.  So, back in the groove I go.


Texas, you need to get Dutch Bros. Please and thank you.

I enjoyed the extras I had on vacation and I’ve enjoyed being home and finding my new normal again too.

I hope your summer is off to a good start wherever you are.  Thanks for checking in!
