Hello, I'm back.
Contrary to what it looks like on the blog, I did not fall off the face of the earth because of Covid. The reasons I haven't blogged in a month -- Covid recovery, a couple of birthdays, and working in a school in June. I've seriously had no energy for anything else. But in one short week I will be done work for the summer and am hoping to have some time to catch up on blogging -- both filling you in on our lives and catching up with all of yours.
What I'm loving... Lately, Dave and I have been having early morning coffee (or coffee-hot chocolate) in our backyard before I head off for work and it is the highlight of my day. I can't wait until next week when I won't have to rush off to work after our early mornings together. I'll still be rushing off (as it were) but it will be to get the kids to swimming and tennis lessons so it feels a little different.
Also, even though it was happening during the day, I had this dream of lights in our tree for my party so I bought a string of solar lights. Well, our poor tree looked really bare so I've added another two strings and it's starting to reach my vision of loveliness. Now I just need to be done work so I can enjoy sitting out there, under the lights at night. I've been going to bed too early to see them go on most nights. Hahaha!
What I'm looking forward to next month... Being off work for the summer and our big summer trip to Europe. By the time next "What's Up Wednesday" rolls around, we'll be off on our big adventure!!! I can't wait!!!!!!!
Amazon purchases... We rarely buy things off Amazon but I saw a teacher wearing a dress and loved it. So I ordered one off Amazon. Another few staff members have also ordered variations of this dress. It's great for working in schools and it has pockets!!! The link is here if you're interested, and it also comes with long sleeves.
What else is new... Last fall half our fence fell down and our neighbour said they would fix it. Well, it got a little more broken, and took eight months, but this week we came home and the fence was fixed!!!! We were all thrilled and every time I walk out our back door, I'm so so so happy to see the fence again. (It had to be fixed by being attached to our neighbours' house so Dave and I didn't feel like we could do that.)
Well, that's what's up with me (us) this Wednesday. Bring on summer and (hopefully) bring on more blogging :)
