We’ve had some VERY hot and humid days here in New Jersey this summer but every now and then we get a cool morning. Last week it was so beautiful that I opened every window in the house for a couple hours.
It was so refreshing to feel and smell the crisp breeze.
Rosie was also enjoying the change in temperature.
Although, it was also a nice day to lay in the sun!
But don’t think I am complaining at all about the heat. I love summer and we are trying to enjoy every single second of it. I do not need to be reminded that fall is only a couple months away and I am NOT ready to see all the fall clothes creeping into the stores and magazines.
Wow – big news…I finally updated my blog photo. Yes, I have retired this old, out-of-focus picture…
I replaced it with something a bit more current. Now I am out from behind the sunglasses and have included my dog, Rosie…
At least this is my picture for now. I realized that I don’t have many pictures of myself since I am always the one taking the photos. I guess that’s the typical mom-dilemma, right? My goal now is to be in more pictures. Plus, since I will be attending the Haven Conference in a few weeks, I thought I would allow myself be a little more recognizable.
I have been shopping around for new white everyday dishes. Even though I love the look of my Mikasa Italian Countryside ones, I don’t love the way they have chipped over the years. I have already replaced a few pieces but now almost every one of the cereal bowls are chipped. I think I want to switch to a porcelain.
I have been eyeing up a few styles from Williams Sonoma.
I let you know which ones I choose. They will definitely be white though because I love the look of plain white dishes.
So that’s about all the excitement around here. My boys have been keeping me busy with activities, pool visits and beach trips. I also spend a significant amount of time trying to keep them off their screens! That’s why I was thrilled to come downstairs to see them working hard on some creative projects.
Of course, an ipad was close by, but hey, it’s progress!
What have you been up to lately?
Have you been able to open your windows?
