Who’s happy it’s Friday? I am! I had a pretty laid back week after last weekend away. I was happy to stay home and not do too much for once this summer, but then I got to thinking about it this morning, and you know what? My week at home wasn’t exactly a week at home. Since I made an intentional effort to stay on vacation mode though, I at least felt like I was more of a homebody, taking it easy, even though I actually was in fact out and about more than I even realized, and doing quite a bit.
I baked, I swam, I went to Jackson – twice, I ate out almost every night, and I went to the family property. Plus, sat in on a few gardening lectures and made it to work out. Doesn’t seem like I was a homebody much at all, does it? Having a relaxed mindset sure does make it seem a lot less busy though. I should keep this in mind more often.
Some details about the week. It had been two years since I made the annual UT Extension garden show, and a few friends of mine were going, so I decided to join them for a few hours. I didn’t stay as long as they did and only caught three of the lectures, but I was glad that I went. I learned a few things about growing grapes, and about planting around this part of Tennessee, plus got some ideas on garden art. I only wished that my guy felt the same way as I do about wine bottles decorating the yard, but that is alright. I guess I am fine keeping our wine bottles full of drinkable liquid in the utility room, rather than having them filled with dirt and morning dew buried in the backyard. ;-)
I got some of my summer shoes finally worn. I have a month and a half left to wear my remaining shoes for the Shoperwoman shoe challenge before I start packing them up for the Goodwill, and I still want to keep every single pair, well mostly every single pair, so I took the couple of opportunities out this week to wear these.
I’ve been on the fence about keeping the black ones, but wore them anyway to give myself a little more time to decide. There will probably be a lot more shoe pictures to come between now and September just so you know.
And that was the gist of my week. I did a lot for thinking I didn’t do much. As much as I hate to say it, there are only five weeks left before the next school year starts. I am gonna remember this week and keep a laid back, carefree attitude for at least four more of them. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
