How Fun! Vol. 39


“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:


I will be starting my 19 year of home schooling on Tuesday, Sept. 2.  I purchased these treats from Target for my soon to be 8th grade students.  Wonder if they will really last until then?  lol


Speaking of starting our home school year, you must read this excellent blog post by Lisa from Four Simply Living!  I loved it!


Beauty in my week:

  • Another successful week of first shift.
  • Healing bones and knees.
  • God’s grace in the slow times when I feel like I should be achieving more.
  • Cooler nights.


Blooming in my garden:

Pink sweet pea
Black-eyed Susan
Blue Ageratum
Pee Gee Hydrangea
White fragrant hosta
Red bee balm-second bloom
Purple loosestrife-second bloom
Mediterranean pinks-second bloom




What we are eating next week:

      • Saturday Dinner out
      • Sunday Meat balls, Linguini, salad, rolls
      • Monday Labor Day picnic
      • Tuesday First Day of School-Celebratory dinner out!
      • Wednesday Make your own pizza night

    Love the picture of you and Ed! And I loved Lisa’s “back to school” post as well. It’s given me some ideas for us to start out our homeschooling year.

    Have a lovely weekend!

    LOL! I was suppose to link up with you and seemed to totally space it. You know how that goes. You and your hubby look so cute in that photos… love it. And I have not seen those treats, now I feel a need to go check out my grocery store for them :-D.
