Summer Days

Hello everyone! I realize it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. For a bit I lost the drive to blog and it began to feel like it was expected of me to write. So I took a small break and now my drive has returned.  I realize it’s been almost a month since I last posted and a lot of things have happened since then. Let’s go in order.

Schools out for the summer! 

May 25th was the last day and it drug by because it rained the whole morning and everything was packed up for the summer. I tried to reconnect everything so we could watch a movie, but my monitor wouldn’t turn on & I tried several times. So we became bored very quickly. I had ten kids and no technology. By afternoon the sun came out for a bit and that made it go quicker. Ever since that day I’ve spent my mornings relaxing and reading outside.

The next event: My 29th Birthday

June 1st I took one more step closer to age 30. I spent the morning with my parents eating lunch at Olive Garden and shopping. One of the best things about your birthday? Free drink from Starbucks!20170601_123146

The evening was spent with my gym friends for a birthday dinner at the Mexican. My gifts this year were all wonderful. I did receive 2 new gym tanks that I love.

Other gifts were:

But the best gift was one that was a complete surprise and it made my day.

I’m pretty sure you can see the happiness on my face. I was overjoyed to receive this. I’m still beaming from the though of this gift.

Last Sunday was wonderful and so good for my soul.  There’s a lady in my church who has always been quite dear to me. In January she started cancer treatments and had to stop coming to church. This past Sunday she returned and even played the organ. She received a standing ovation and it was so wonderful. That evening we had a pie social and sing along. She returned to play for that too. As I was walking in I stopped to take this picture because I’ve always admired my church’s stained glass windows.

Sunday Adventures

Sunday was a wonderful day. Church was great and it was wonderful to be surrounded by my church family again. I think next Sunday Georgia will be attending church with her grandmother. I LOVE when she’s there because she’s this bright and energetic 2nd grader.  When I got home after lunch my little fluffball was waiting on me. She knew it was Sunday which means car ride day with me. I changed and took her out to the car.  She was so excited as we drove to the park. She loves to watch the ducks. I call them her live squeaky toys.

 

The sky was really blue that day and I could smell summer in the air. It also didn’t hurt that the temperature was 90 either. There was a breeze but that didn’t deter me from sitting on my grandmother’s back porch with a book & my Sunday relaxation playlist playing on Spotify.

I kind of like reading while sitting in a swing. Butterflies kept fluttering by & the birds were chirping up a storm in the holly tree. I sat out there for thirty minutes then went inside to visit Mam for a little bit. As I was walking back home (barefoot because it felt like a summer night) I looked up and noticed the sky was my summer sky. I can’t wait for summer 2017 to arrive.
