Once we hit an age where Sunshine started sleeping in on weekends life changed for us. There was no worry about "what if she wakes up at 6 am?" Most days she's asleep until at least 8. If not later. Let me tell you, if I can sleep from 11:30 until 8 am, I'm a happy girl.
Summer is a time away from volunteering. I love doing what I do at school and I count my blessings that I am able to stay home. But, everyone needs down time. This is mine.
We've settled into a wonderful non-schedule of days now that our trip to Florida and VBS are over. We get up when we're ready, eat breakfast in a lazy fashion and plan our day as necessary. This week has been pool week. The first summer we were in our house we joined a neighboring subdivision's pool. Five years later finds us enjoying the pool as much as ever and Hunter on the board of the pool. "Voluntold" he calls it.
But, it's our home away from home. There's rarely a day that friends aren't there. I keep Hunter's old Nook in the pool bag so that I have something to read (my Kindle Fire HD isn't great for outdoor reading). The water has been wonderfully refreshing in the summer heat.
Tonight we're having a relaxing evening---laundry is going, I made stuffed peppers (sausage, quinoa, onions, toma tomatoes & gouda) for dinner and we're watching a movie. Tomorrow is more pool time.
Oh summer. . .how I love you!
