Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig

We are home from our vacation and had a wonderful time visiting with Grandma and Grandma, my sister and her two boys. The two weeks went by quickly and now we are trying to get back into our routine. I'm almost caught up on laundry and I've been doing a little school planning, too. Everyone starts back on August 23, which is just around the corner.

Btw, Target has sheet sets (includes 4 pillow cases) on sale this week. Any size, 450 thread count, and several colors to choose from for $34.00. I picked up a green set to match my comforter.

I'll be back next week with vacation pictures!

July 12, 2010

Good morning! We've had a fairly cool July thanks to rain almost every day.

My water garden has been very neglected this year. I haven't cleaned it out at all.

It seems to have created the perfect environment for new goldfish babies! There are at least 4 (1 gold and 3 black), but they are very camera shy. The fish in the picture is one of the adults.

I hope your July is going great, as well. The kids are I are about to leave for Rhode Island to visit Grandpa and Grandma. I'll be back to 2 weeks with pictures to share!

Happy July and Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians! It is also my brother's birthday, so it's a good day. I received an email requesting that I share pictures of a flower cake from the May 2000 Victoria magazine, so here they are...

So pretty! I wish I could make roses like that.



As you can probably tell by the lack of posts, I've been struggling a bit with finding the time to blog. My style is to share a lot of pictures and have some sort of theme, but Phillip and Grace have been encouraging me to try shorter, more simple posts. I've spent that past two weeks thinking I couldn't do it, but now I'm going to give it a try! Hopefully, it will work out better and you won't be too bored. :0)

I'll be back soon!
