Autumn is here! I checked the forecast and next week we are getting mild temperatures in the upper 50’s and lower 60’s. There will be both cloudy and rainy days. This is my favorite season as it’s not too hot or dry! The early mornings and evenings are perfect for warm drinks and cozy blankets!Continue reading
Snow in the middle of March isn’t a normal occurrence here where I am located in Oregon. So you can imagine our surprise when it was warm with Spring like weather and temperatures just a week prior to. It’s chilly and cold today but the sun did come out and the snow and ice is starting to melt. Foward weather is a wait and see.Continue reading
It was nice to be able to sleep fourth of July morning! We slept until around 9am had bacon and eggs for breakfast and ventured out for a mustard and ketchup bottle. We never did find bottles for our ketchup and mustard which is a drag since we buy our ketchup and mustard in bulk at Costco. It’s not ideal for me to throw the giant jugs on the dining table! You’d be surprised that Target and the local grocery stores didn’t carry any. OH well!
I did happen to pick up some incredibly cute red, white, and blue napkins and plates that had robots on them. You can guess that my husband was pretty pleased with my choice. As much as I like being traditional, I like kooky and fun twist on things and that is why we got them to use on the 4th! I was really meaning to take a picture of the 4th of July spread but totally forgot and by the time I realized it, everything had been eaten. Oops! lolSo while we were out, I decided that EA Sport Active was an incredibly beneficial purchase to both my husband and I and purchased it for $50.00 at Frys. I tried it a week ago, and I bought it on that and reading reviews from others that had tried it out. Am I feeling the burn? You betcha! But do I want more? Yes! I love how it’s set up and I like that we can customize our own workouts! My husband I were on so much of a buzz over it, that fourth of July evening we went on a hour walk plus our 30 min workouts! Are we sore? Yes. But it’s all for getting in shape and staying there!
My in-laws came over on the 4th. We grilled out hot dogs and they brought delicious potato salad, chips, soda, and some very yummy Silvan blackberries. I’d never had those type of berries before but I must say they were very good! My husband played the wii with his dad while my mother in law and I chatted while playing with Melody. We didn’t do too much because it was pretty hot in the apartment. Megan, my sister in law didn’t stay very long because she was heading out to see a fire works show with her friend ( hence that we didnt’ get any photos of her).
Well, after family left, my husband and I went on a walk and returned home around 9pm. We watched the encore presentation of the Capitol 4th and then headed to bed. Suprisingly Melody stayed up and watched the whole show with us. LOL… She really enjoyed the music.
How was your 4th of July?
