I feel like this post may be redundant or repetitive but here we go… you’ve been warned! Ha!
What we’re eating…
I am really enjoying putting together teriyaki, stir fry, or whatever you want to call them bowls. This time I added sugar snap peas along with broccoli, shredded carrots, my favorite already cooked chicken from Costco, mushrooms, and I used up the rest of the Thai sauce I had from Trader Joe’s.
I put it on cauliflower rice for me and regular rice for the fam.
These flavors have just really spoken to me this summer!
What I’m loving…
I had the best coffee the other morning. We have a Mexican breakfast place called Con Huevos (With Eggs) and they have a coffee with milk. They bring you about a third of a class of coffee and then fill it with steamed milk while you watch. I can’t even tell you how good this is and it really reminded me of the coffee in Spain – so strong you have to cut it in half with milk.
I’m loving the free time to go get breakfast out, to read, to not be hurried, to have daylight until late, etc. I am really trying to embrace the stuff that makes summer summer. I know that technically we have summer until September, but as soon as school starts in my world, summer is OVER.
What I’m wearing…
I am wearing workout clothes, pajamas, swimsuits and coverups the most. I’m kinda ready to get “dressed” for school.
I ordered another pair of bike shorts from J.Crew Factory on Kristin’s recommendation and they are really good. They are like my favorite pocket leggings but cut off. They were on sale for less than $10!
I had a sad thing happen. My fedora flew off my head on the boat. Yes, I was dumb and didn’t take it off before my capitan increased the speed. I ordered a replacement in a little bit darker shade. By gosh, I’m trying to be a hat person. I don’t think they look great on me, but I will not give up.
I cannot stop buying and wearing my fun straps! Look at my new little baby for like $8!
I guess a time when we didn’t have to talk about Covid and masks. My school district re-instated a mask mandate for busses and buildings as of this past Monday. I am hoping and praying that it will be a choice by August 10 when we officially go back.
What we’ve been up to…
My kids are still working hard at their summer jobs. They are winding down and only have a couple of weeks left. That will give them about two weeks before they head back to campus. I know they are looking forward to some downtime to just hang out. I think this is really important before the hustle and bustle of fall semester.
I always say YES when they ask to watch a show with me, go somewhere with me, ask me to make them something.
I am still loving taking one of these before bed. I think I should take it a little bit earlier.
Tom and I have been sharing our bathroom very peacefully. If you are new here, we never had to share a bathroom in 22 years of marriage. We will see how it goes when I am getting ready earlier in a couple of weeks!
I went to my 32nd high school reunion!
I am waiting on my Target orders. Seriously, they are the slowest. And, they lie. They change your dates all the time.
What I’m dreading…
The same thing I said last month – the professional developments and the training videos I have to watch before school starts!
What I’m listening to…
the sounds of rain finally. We have had such a dry summer. I love being on my covered patio when it’s lightly raining. I am doing this post there right now! Ooops, now I hear thunder and that means it’s time to go inside!
What I’m reading…
Lessons in Chemistry. I have been so slow, but it’s really a cute book. I am starting to pick up the pace.
What I’m watching…
Virgin River Season 4
Bravo Southern Charm
Bravo Below Deck Mediterranean with Captain Sandy
Bravo Real Housewives of Dubai
Always New Girl, Gilmore Girls when I just want to turn something on that makes me happy
I have watched a few movies, too – Mean Girls, Pretty Woman, and the original Top Gun.
What I’m doing this weekend…
Hopefully I will get to boat because we didn’t go out last weekend.
What I’m looking forward to next month…
I am actually excited to see my students! I miss them during the summer!
Also, I am having a little get together at a Mexican restaurant for my seniors from last year before they leave for college.
I am really excited for September and plan to do all things apple!
And, I also plan to find some Oktoberfests to go to!
What else is new…
Nothing else that I can think of at the moment…
So, what’s up with you if you are still here?
