Week 32

I've been getting outside in the mornings as much as possible to help balance my circadian rhythms. It feels wonderful and might actually be helping with my energy and sleep.

It's that time of year. Back-to-school...already?? Logan started first grade on Wednesday and celebrated his birthday with his new classmates Friday. Then we all went to the Zoo with him on Sunday.


Notes from the Universe via my cup of tea.

Lush lawn by Jesse - kept this way with recycled water.

Green Heron and two ducks. 
Once again, I wished I had brought my DSLR in my bike basket.

Like me, she wants to play with ALL of the colors.

I found Dahlia's on our Saturday afternoon trip to Lowes.

Grizzly Bear or North American Brown Bear? I think they are the same.
I say Grizzly.

Giraffes are amazing creatures.

Meet Lucha the Jaguar and oh so pretty. 

The majestic Bald Eagle.

I'm still looking for the photo I took of him in this same exact spot on his second birthday.
Pretty sure he wasn't as tall.

"Do this?"
We tried to get her to spread her 'wings' too. 

Mr six-year-old had a busy, fun birthday week.

Week 31

We got real rain on Monday! I loved just hearing it coming down and the sound of cars driving by through the puddles. Our new (replaced) library opened and I couldn't wait to visit. It's gorgeous! And Mr. Logan celebrated his 6th birthday with a pool party at his Aunt Sue's. 

Rode my bike to the park and back before these beauties opened up 
and blessed us with sweet, sweet rain.

Too cool for Brother's shoes.

Library selfie. 
I may have to donate to the library so I can get my name on one of these pretty tiles.

If you're looking for me, I'll be here.

Art in their jammies.

My boys, checking out the view from Aunt Sue's beautiful backyard.

This Birthday fish spent most of the day in the pool with all his friends.

Happy Birthday!
Shark Cupcake cake by Lori.

Fresh, juicy summer peach. Yum!

Week 30

Another busy yet fun week on the Logan and Paisley show. Managed to get them out for TWO walks and we had a sleepover too. I found some time to do a Procreate beginner series that was fun and informative. 

Crazy time in the morning.

Went for a walk around the neighborhood. 

This girl and that face 🥰

My Intergalactic art piece in Procreate.

Miss Cleo on the patio table, in my business.

Fresh cut deserves a selfie. 
I had about three inches taken off and it feels so much better.

Snug as bugs in a rug.

We didn't feed them but these ducks followed the kids all the way around the pond.

We got a few sprinkles Sunday.

Week 29

It was a busy week hanging out with these babies for three days versus my usual two. They keep me moving and wear me out. Worth it!

I take my eyes off them for one second and they're sneaking out back with a yogurt to share.

Hanging out on the front porch.

We're pretend camping.

Bailee waiting for some popsicle drops.

She calls them "copicals".

Messy and yummy.

Afternoon tea with my girl.

Saturday night dinner.
Grilled burgers with caramelized onions, swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce, mustard, and tots.
