Every other week is a non-4-H, non-co-op and non-Girl Scouts week, which means we are enjoying more time at home or doing more random things we enjoy! Yesterday we went apple picking and made some new friends, and tonight we have a rally for the Scouts fall product. I’m prepping for my baby sister’s baby shower, building birdhouses with 4-H next week and getting parents ready for the Scouts fall sale, so you could say I still have many of those activities this week! Since last week, I’ve also enjoyed the season premiere of How to Get Away with Murder (OMG who do you think is dead?), FALL WEATHER, a birthday party for my friends’ daughter, a visit to the Spirit Halloween store (WANT. EVERYTHING. sigh!) a shower prep day with my middle sister, swimming with my family, soft pretzels, a new episode of Once Upon a Time, some book writing, some park play, and a 4-H council meeting where we got tons of free supplies for projects! It’s also almost OCTOBER, the most wonderful time of the year! 😉
Rocking to… My “Everything Bagel” Spotify playlist. Hearing old songs that I completely forgot about is so much fun.
Laughing about… the presidential debate. Really? Just… really?
Reading… Abundant Mama blogs, Hands Free Mama, Girl Scouts badge guides, fall sales guide, proofs.
Writing… Ganjarama pieces, Boo to You, Mrs. Robinson, tons of emails/reminders/agendas/materials for homeschool groups, 4-H Club, Girl Scouts and another homeschool group steering committee, product descriptions (boots, fog machines, chairs, pillows…) and site testing. The best thing this week (so far) was a description for a Deadpool toy. SWEET!
Watching…Brooklyn 99 and Once Upon a Time. My sister and I also watched 10 Cloverfield Lane on Saturday and although I was underwhelmed, it was really nice to spend the day with her. Plus, I was able to introduce her to EW!
And yeah, I’m Sara with no H, because H’s are EW!
Planning… My baby sister’s baby shower, group meetings, park days, parties, field trips… again, All The Things. <–Ditto from last week, only this week is a little less hectic. We did have a tire blow last week so we are working some makeup cash into the budget for that, too.
Making… Baby shower goodies (art, keepsakes for mama and other things I cannot reveal!), lots and lots and lots of words strung together…
Wanting… To walk around barefoot and NOT get dog hair splinters in my feet. Aside from brushing and daily sweeping (which we already do), any ideas?
Here are just a few things I am loving this already uber-filled FALL. How about you?
FALL. It doesn’t feel like it yet but it’s GOING to soon! Next week is apple picking, which always kicks off the season. Today we made maple popcorn in honor of Autumn. Wood Sprite also enjoyed a new chore for her: mowing the lawn!
My new skull earrings. I got them for less than a buck and they are adorable.
Sleeping in. OMG, y’all… Wood Sprite spent the night at my mom’s on Saturday so I could work on my book. The next day, Indy and I slept. in. It was so wonderful! Then we ate a frozen pizza in bed and watched Stranger Things… This may seem simple to some people but to people always on the go like us, it was absolute heaven. We talked about how we used to be so nonchalant about days like this and we just enjoyed it SO much.
Wood Sprite’s bowling league. We took a long break from WS’s league because she had grown tired of weekly bowling, but it’s so much fun to see our friends H and B on a weekly basis again! We have missed them so much.
Coffee. Always and so much!
Talk Like a Pirate Day! My family and I always love this day because we get to dress up and get free donuts (Indy’s favorite)! This year we shared some with friends, some with nurses at the ER and some with our librarians.
Fishing with 4-H. We had a blast, even though it was pretty hot.
Seeing Follieswith our homeschool co-op. It was simply amazing!
Writing… All The Things. Seriously, all I do is write, blearily blink at the screen and wonder when my next “power nap” might be (which is basically when I start to nod off). If I could just get ahead by a day or two I could get out of this constant state of being behind on everything.
Watching…Stranger Things. LOVE.
Planning… My baby sister’s baby shower, group meetings, park days, parties, field trips… again, All The Things.
Making… myself crazy. Friends with a moth. An empty cup. Agendas, books, articles, blogs, sign-up sheets, calendars, reminders, e-mails…
Wanting… To snuggle up in some cozy down and nod off. How about you?
Not only is this song my favorite, but it’s also perfect for the montage that I need right now (thank you, S!). Deadlines, homeschooling, 4-H, Scouts, baby shower planning, volunteering, birthday planning, play dates and classes… This week already thinks it has my number but I have news for you, week: I’m onto you!
