Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Back to work.. kind of

I can't believe it's August already but I'm happy to say we've been enjoying the lazy days of summer. Unlike last year (rain and more rain) we've had plenty of sunshine and hot weather. I love it but it's been a bit warm for our two dogs so we've been taking them to our creek every day.

We also got to spend a long weekend at my brother's house. It was so great to have all of the family there. With all of our kids growing up it's getting harder and harder to make room in their busy schedule so this was very special. We relaxed, played beach volleyball, swam, tortured ourselves with a giant jigsaw puzzle, had cookouts and bonfires, relaxed some more and bonded. It was so awesome and exactly what we all needed!

Now it's back to work (kind of) and time to get some stuff done on my blog. Maybe I can get back to some kind of schedule. At least a summer schedule, right? Although it's really nice out today and the dogs just asked to go swimming...


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! I might enjoy fishing if I did it the way your mom does!

  2. Looks like the dogs were really enjoying themselves. Glad to hear you've had some good weather and had a nice get-a-away. Sounds like fun! I think a lot of bloggers are a little more relaxed in the summer. Have a great week!

  3. That creek is beautiful. It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. I can't believe summer is almost over.

  4. The family time sounds wonderful. Looks like you've had a great summer :)
