Weekend Update

Hi everyone!

This weekend has been very productive so far. Last night Kevin and I went to The Dump and bought a beautiful rug for our TV room. It makes the room a lot warmer and cozier! Here is a picture:

The first thing Kevin and the dogs did after we put it down was cuddle up together (see below). The dogs are so happy to be able to hang out with us in the tv room now. They didn't like walking or laying on the wood floors.

Today I got up early and cleaned the house. I gave it a really thorough cleaning because I am going back to work next week and I wanted a nice, clean house to come home to. Here is a picture of me trying to get smudges off of our fridge. Note to self: do not buy stainless steel ever again.

And while I was working inside, Kevin was working outside! I snuck outside and took a picture of him working on the sprinklers. Then he asked me nervously why I was "giggling like a little girl." I guess I just like working in our very own house!!!!

Later we are going to do a few more small projects around here and then grill fajitas for dinner. Tomorrow we are busy pretty much all day with church stuff, so we're trying to get stuff done today.

On another note, I had planted some zinnias in the front flower beds earlier in the summer, and some bugs were eating them so I moved them into pots in the back yard recently. With the clouds and rain we have had the last few days they have really flourished! Look how big and beautiful they are!

I am very proud of my flowers, because I don't exactly have a "green thumb." I have always had more of brown shriveled up, dried out because I forgot to water it, type of thumb. Kevin's been helping me with that. My Mr. Agronomist.

I am so ready to go back to school! I have been working a lot to do as much at home as I can to prepare for the year, since we are getting into the school very late. Yesterday I spent hours on the floor making posters and organizing leveled readers for book boxes. It's never-ending to be a first grade teacher.

Have a great last half of your weekend! I'll update again soon :)

I love your rug and I am glad that it makes my granddogs happy. Your flowers are beautiful and look great on your back deck. Kevin did look really happy while working in his own yard, and I just can't help smiling when I see you fretting over the smudges on your refrigerator. Daddy and I are so happy for you both! We love you, Sweetie. Mommy
