Summer Day 6- Daughter Date

Today my daughter and I went to our favorite lunch spot. We haven't been to this place since last Fall. It was a treat. Panera is our FAVORITE. We both had Broccoli and Cheddar Bread Bowls.
We then went to Kirkland's. This is one of our favorite Stores. She bought me a Drift Wood Pineapple for my Birthday from there. Pineapples mean Hospitality. Since...we live in the southern states which is known for hospitality they are big hit in this area for now.

What this pineapple really reminds me of is our missions trip to Solomon Islands. How my heart aches to go back.

What is your favorite place to have lunch? Do you and your children (even grown) have a favorite spot?

Summer Day 3 & 4- Birthday Time!

My Birthday was today (June 24th) and my youngest son is Monday. We celebrated his Friday Night with a friend coming over. He chose for me to make Frito Chili Pies and do Ice Cream Sundae's. We swam at the pool and then went to the arcade for a little bit.

Today one of my sweetest friends surprised me with a Homemade from Scratch Cake. I received a some special cards, texts, and phone calls. I was blessed with a free massage, pedicure, and a gift card.

My oldest surprised me with a hot cocoa from one of my favorite places. My husband gave me some flowers. It was a sweet day.

Summer Day 2- Coloring, Fellowship, and Free Library Programs

We had a great day Thursday. We started off at the Library. They have programs on Thursday's and this day it was about recycling. The kids learned a little and then made a craft out of mostly recycled items.

Then I had a friend come to visit and we chatted for a bit. We took the kids down to the pool and relaxed poolside and colored. Yes...we colored! It was so fun. I haven't colored in a long time. This was one of my items on my Summer Bucket List to do.

Have you got to do any things you planned for this summer yet?  I had a very small list of things I wanted to do with the kids and then one for myself. I have done a good bit so far. It is mainly small things. Example....a special date night with the husband, ice cream bar, coloring with a friend, a picnic.

Hope you have a blessed weekend!

Monday Amusements

We kicked off this day at the pool. Three in a half hours of sun, volleyball, and swimming. Lots of fun! I actually got in and swam almost the whole time. I don't like cold water but it was nice today.
After our swimming we headed home for lunch. We warmed up hot dogs from the grill. We overindulged in brownies. *Smiles* Then the kids cuddled up to watch a movie. I school planned.

The rain moved in and after the movie we pulled out some ingredients to make Moon Sand Fluff. It was a lot of fun. The kids loved it! It was only cornstarch and shaving cream.

We added food coloring for some fun and then we added sprinkles. *Smiles*

After we cleaned up I began supper. I made deviled eggs for the husband. He loves them. I then pulled all our leftovers out because we had a lot of them and we served up a hodge podge buffet. We had pork chops, hot dogs, jambalaya, noodles with browned garlic and parmesan, squash, and corn.
We had cake from Father's Day leftover for dessert.

I may need an extra walk tonight....Smiles!!!!

Blessings and thanks for stopping by!

Can you say...ahhh?!

Today my friends we are relaxing. We haven't had a relaxing weekend in FOREVER. I am not playing. Between my husband traveling back and forth to his parents during my Father In Law's battle with cancer and then his passing, family events, and just life we have been rung out.

We are enjoying some time "chilling" today. I slept in a little. Made pancakes for the family. Derrick and I took a long nice walk. Read the Word. Took my son to the pool and enjoyed some pool time. Now we are all just doing our own little things. We had some nice family conversation time this morning with laughter and debate. *Smiles*

A Snippet from today....

Relaxing. I even took a dip in the pool. It was so nice and refreshing.

Here is a little refresher for your soul.

"Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature." 2 Peter 1:4
