Saturday, April 29

Happy Saturday! Happy second to the last day of April! Today I am here for a rare Saturday post to link up with Jennifer for her “Share 4 Somethings”. If you are a regular reader, there will be some repeats of thoughts and photos!


This month I have loved my view from my little deck outside of my mudroom. I love my Amazon anti-gravity lounger with sunshade and this almost immediately relaxes me. I have watched less tv and read more books from this spot.

When it rains and when I need more shade, I come down to my covered patio with ceiling fans. I have not spruced up either space yet with pillows, candles, and decor. I need to get on that.


I learned how important it is to immediately come home and love on my Ernie. At the end of our after school walks I let him off lease in our yard and he does the best roll and back scratch in the grass. We had such a scare with him on January 26 when the vet told us he would not be long for this world. We brought him home and loved on him even more and that is still our plan. He seems back to normal but stiff from age from time to time.

I am continuing to learn to be content and happy with my closet. I am wearing mostly old things with a few consignment or new finds thrown in.

I am learning to be a better shopper and continuing to return things that aren’t a 10/10 for me.

If you have multiple returns, you can edit your photo with your return code to say what the item is.


I read these books this month. Marlowe Banks was my least favorite and moved a bit slow. But, I liked them all!


I ate mostly at home.

Burrito bowl:

Zucchini lasagna bowl:

Big Mac Bowl:

Greek bowl with Greek potatoes:

And, for lunch I bring the same as the dinner for Erica and I and she does the same.

Doritos Tacos Loco Salad:

Erica’s Slender Kitchen Beef Bulgogi Bowl:

I am eating pretty well from Monday to Friday…unless there is cake, donuts, cookies, offered to me at school. Darned sweet tooth!

Can you share 4 somethings? Can you share 1 something?

Make the most of your Saturday!

  1. Ugh! I’ve been struggling with my sweet tooth too!! I do find I eat so much healthier at home and mon-fri; but weekends and “occasions” are so much harder. It looks like a great month of reading.


    1. Me too! I know part of the craving sweets is the stress of the end of the school year. It was a really good reading month – because I could read outside a lot!


  2. I love what you said about Ernie. Our dogs are such a huge part of our lives. Loving us unconditionally and understanding how we feel or at least acting like they do. 😉Losing them is so painful but having them in our lives and loving them is worth it for me anyway. ❤️


    1. I am a fair weather reader – that’s for sure. I need to decide if I am going to keep a lemon theme on my upper deck and a tropical theme on my lower deck. I think I will because I haven’t been inspired and I already have a lot of that decor.
      I need to do that, too.

  3. That is such a good idea to edit the bar code pic for returns. I heard recently that Amazon may start charging $1 to return in UPS store…say it isn’t so! Let’s hope not! Enjoy your weekend.
