Happy Monday: School vacation has come to an end.

Good morning, everyone! Right this moment while typing this post, I’m sipping one of my favorite Tea Guys tea and it’s called peppermint chocolate vanilla, a yummy Rooibos blend. The store that I normally buy it from had been out of it for a while so I was really surprised to see it there today so I snatched it up so I could have a cup today. The aroma alone makes me happy.

It’s been a while since I’ve been in blog land. We had our February vacation last week and I took the entire week off from work to hang out with my family. As many of you may know, I work out of my home office. One of the many challenges is to not blur the line between work and play so I really made an effort this time to avoid my office and my laptop computer so that I could really be present for my family. It worked and I feel very refreshed and ready to get back to my work routine. That’s not to say that I’m happy vacation has ended because I really had a good time.

We had a staycation which included watching movies together at home and having friends come over for hanging out. We visited a new comic book store and even slept over my in-laws’ home for a few nights where we played games and of course ate her delicious food. One day, we took a drive and spent the day hanging out at Dave and Busters playing games and eating yummy burgers and fries. We took the boys and my in-laws to go to the movie theater to see the movie Hidden Figures which was a great activity for celebrating BHM with the kids. They learned quite a bit from the movie. You know me so I also had to make time to sit and have reading time with the boys. and we all read our books and comics. We took a ride to go and visit the new Apple store that opened near us.

I was so thrilled yesterday when both of my boys told me they had a great week.  This is very important to me because my goal was a relaxing week sprinkled with fun activities and I think we were successful.  The weather was so amazing for much of the vacation and on three of the days it was warm enough to be without a coat and our neighbor’s kids came over and played outside with the boys while Leao and I caught up on the local happenings with our neighbors.

I also managed to do a bit of reading and tried to wrap up some of the books and the things that I wanted to read during Black History Month. I didn’t finish them all so I will just read the remaining books throughout the year as normal. I do have a few book reviews from last month that I haven’t had the chance to post.  So you should be on the lookout for those reviews.

Spring is in the air, and with that, my mind just begins filling with ideas of home-improvement projects and garden planning. Stay tuned for more on that.

This week, I’ll get back onto a regular posting schedule, as well as, my regular work schedule first. I hope you were all well this past week and look forward to meeting up with you again here this week. Have a blessed day!
