Happy Monday Catch-up and Gardening Goodness

Hello, everyone and happy Monday! It’s funny how I had so many thoughts of sitting down to write a post last week, but to be honest, the summer-like weather were experiencing kept me outside on my deck and in my garden. So Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there! I had the most relaxing Mother’s day yet and it started off with yummy breakfast-in-bed. My gift was awesome. They got me a year subscription to Ancestry.com. I will write a separate post about this so I can fully gush.

Last week, I began my first week of my spring Clean Cleanse. It actually helped a lot to have the warm weather because my water intake was great and eating more vegetables always seems to come easier to me in the warmer seasons. I am beginning week two and feel good. The first few days are always tough for me but the benefits felt, make it so much easier. More on this later.

My reading life took a hit with a slump but I have since recovered and will be writing some reviews of my recent reads in the Book Nook. I also have a book haul to share so come on back and take a peek!

As for work, I have been officially off from work for a few weeks, trying to rethink and plan stuff. I also have to begin the process of pairing down for our upcoming trips and summer vacation. I have decided not to send the boys to camp this year since we have two big trips coming up and they would miss too much for that to be a good choice. So I will be working out what they will be doing before I plan my reduced work schedule.

As for my gardening life, I planted my seeds in trays around May 10th for additional beauties to add to my garden this spring. I am not as confident when it comes to transplanting the baby plants when the time comes but it’s worth it when I am successful. So I am giving it a try again this year. Last year, with the advice of my garden girlfriend, Ashley, I had quite a few successes. So I’m at it again.

Leao painted our deck over and I am in paradise. That is my favorite place to be from May – late October.  We eat all of our family dinners there, I eat lunch there and breakfast in the summer. I spend hours reading there or listening to music. I bring my laptop and work out there, I color there. It’s my place. So when he said he was going to repaint it, I was ecstatic! That along with the new blinds makes it feel so warm and tropical.

I also received some happy mail last week. I didn’t know my name was entered for a giveaway when I signed up for an online class and this package arrived with all these great stamps and dies. I am so thrilled that they include sentiments so I can use them on different projects.  I rarely win anything so this was a real surprise. I can’t wait to play with them.

Well, I will leave you now and I hope that you have a blessed day!
