It’s Saturday and that means it is time to reflect on the week and celebrate things both big and small. Join our community and celebrate this week by linking up or just stopping by the host Ruth Ayres’ blog to read others’ celebrations.
I went to Madison to spend a night with my mother two weeks ago. Every year, we try to go to Maxwell Street Days, a massive sidewalk sale on State Street downtown. I drove to Madison on Thursday afternoon and we went out to dinner and an outdoor concert. The capitol building was so beautiful as we walked back to my mom’s condo!
During that short trip, we shopped, had lunch with my aunt, and went to my great-aunt’s house to pick raspberries before I drove home Friday afternoon (we won’t discuss the ridiculous traffic in Milwaukee and the extra hour sitting at a standstill). I love living close enough to pop over for an overnight!
I also have enjoyed some awesome morning walks with Ramon and the two dogs. Since we are both teachers, we both have the summer off. It is great to be able to spend time together. (We are also learning to give each other space…that is something that we have to relearn each summer for some reason)
Our Rambunctious Duo
Kiko sure loves this beige couch while Carmela seems to enjoy the purple one. A dog’s life certainly is a lot of napping. Maybe we should take a cue from them!
We have been eating better during the last week or so. I love summer vegetables and am subscribed to a CSA box this summer. It is so fun to get creative with the abundance of veggies in my box!
I also was more consistent in getting my workouts in this week, and I signed up for a new workout challenge in August!
What do you have to celebrate this week? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
