    This morning I am getting caught up on life! Yikes! This week got away from me, and I'm not sure why. This afternoon I'm spending time with friends and then I'm running some errands this evening.

    Was back at 10am from the gym, Target, Ross, & Starbucks. I'm doing some work now. Tomorrow will be pretty much a repeat of today.

    Sat
    This was my 1st day back after my San Fran trip. Relaxed all day @ home & watched TV! :) My sore feet & knee have to recuperate for a few days.

    Sun
    Went to dinner @ El Torito & the movies...saw San Andreas & Insidious 3. Both were great, especially San Andreas!

    Saturday--7km walk/run, watched the Blue Jays and the Canadian Women's soccer team win their games!

    Sunday--had a short visit with my son and his girlfriend and then curled up on the couch for most of the day. I've had a cold for a week and it got the best of me yesterday!

    Now that most of us are out, everyday's a Saturday! :cool:

    I'll be working 8 hrs today & 9 tomorrow, but there's still time to squeeze in a bit of fun.

    This is the last weekend of the school year for me. I'm taking it easy today--my son and his girlfriend were here last night, so I had a bit of a visit with them this morning, then went for groceries. Now, I'm watching the Blue Jays game on TV and debating which book to start next. After the game, I'll go out and do some gardening.

    Slept late. Pool for a few hours. Lounging in the recliner until supper time. Provably walk on beach later. I do love vacation.

    Bought my dad something he has wanted for a long time, but would never purchase for himself: FitBit!

    This evening, mom, brother, and I took him to Father's Day dinner. I made his favorite dessert--Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake! I'd say it was a pretty good day for him!

    My dad is my biggest cheerleader! Very special guy.

    Yesterday, we did my mom's kitchen.
    And by did my mom's kitchen I mean we gutted the place and redid the entire thing.
    Really hard work, but I feel very accomplished.

    I'm headed to work. After three days with kids, there are several things that need to be adjusted to improve the flow of the classroom.

    Well, I had a pretty lazy morning. I watched a TED Talk while eating breakfast/drinking my gallon of coffee. It was talking about how there are programs that companies use to read your Facebook Likes in order to determine your IQ, political beliefs, personality, and religious beliefs. Interesting/scary stuff!

    Now I am at school procrastinating creating a Lesson Plan! : P

    I went for a 3km run, did some weeding in the yard, read from "Read, Write, Lead" by Regie Routman, worked on some crafts for my church and now I'm off to visit with family for the evening.

    My husband and I were going to rebuild the last 2 sections of our privacy fence this morning. But, we rec'd an overnight warning text that we would be under a heat advisory. So, we turned off our alarm and haven't done much of anything today. It's been nice (but hot!)

    I slept in, went to church, had Panera Bread for lunch, and then ended up falling asleep for a couple of hours. This evening I'm going to watch some movies, finish my last quizzes for my last undergrad course, and start studying for my final.

    I can tell Aug is going to just zizp by already in the blink of an eye! :dizzy: Time's going by faster & faster!

    Today was like yesterday...in the morning, went to JoAnne's Fabrics & Ross this morning, then back home to do some work.

    SubCT, I know you weren't feeling well the day before, so glad you had fun.

    I assume about 1/2 of you guys started back to work by now, so I'm sure it's nicer than ever so see Saturay again.

    I'm working on/off (mostly on) all day & night. I wanted to walk this morning, but decided too last minute to go.

    Tomorrow morning, I plan to go to the gym, then repeat what I'm doing today.

    Last Saturday we were at a beautiful wedding in Philadelphia.

    Today we went to a seafood festival at a racetrack near the beach. We ate delicious crab cakes, bet on a few races...headed home now. Tomorrow is wine festival at local farm.

    Beautiful weather. Not going back to school until September 1. :D

    I only stepped outside my house twice yesterday, and I didn't change out of pajamas at all. It was great!

    I cleaned out my pantry and fridge, did six loads of laundry, and took two naps.

    I just ended my second week with kids, so I needed some alone time.

    The weather looks like it will be perfect today...cool & cloudy with a hint of sun.

    I want to go to my local FM (farmer's market), but after that, I honestly don't know what I'll do yet today. I don't want to drive anywhere far this time, so I'll hang around my city.

    Yesterday, saw the movie, Sinister 2. I think I liked part 1 a little better.

    I'm down visiting with my daughter for her opening weekend (soccer). Went to the game last night (they won, 4-0!), then enjoyed a leisurely lunch on the patio with her and her boyfriend. Tomorrow, it's one more game, then hitting the road for the 5.5 hour+ drive home.

    We are on a weekend getaway trip to Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. Eating crab cakes, winery tour, sitting on the shore watching sailboats and Navy jets flying over. Heavenly relaxing.

    Don't know where August went! :dizzy: This weekend, I relaxed, went out to dinner at the Yard House & had their great turkey burgers, did my morning walk, did a little shopping & grocery shopping at Sprouts, & saw the movie Hitman: Agent 47.

    I slept about all weekend except for a couple of hours when I went to the walk-in clinic and got groceries, and then I went to church today. I'm fighting a kidney infection. It's wiped me out.

    The weather we've been having here lately is making up for the cooler July we had because it's been like a hot, sweltering, muggy blanket outside! :mad:

    I'm so ready for fall weather!

    That's how our first 2 weeks of September has been, making up for the not-so-hot summer as you said....today is in the low 70's and I am loving it.

    There is a cool breeze and really feels like a lovely fall day...can't wait to go apple picking!

    After the sauna-like weather we had all week, the cool drizzle today is a welcome relief! Doing some planning while watching the Blue Jays double-header on TV.

    I went to the farmer's market this morning and then went for a massage. I'll do some grocery shopping later and I'm hoping to also do some reading and cooking this afternoon.
