Sundays

Sundays for me are usually about the balancing act of getting things done around the house, while still having a slow moving, relaxing kind of day. Some days I'm better at finding this balance than others. Today has been a good mix of the to do list and the fun list. I actually woke up late this morning (well, late for me anyway) and spent the next hour in bed finishing this book. A good book, but sad. Once I got out of bed, I made myself a berry smoothie and spent a bit of me time on the computer. I did the last 3 loads of laundry, meal planned and made a grocery list (though I've yet to make it to the grocery store), before doing some fun stuff in the kitchen. I made peach/blueberry crumble for dessert tonight, chopped up a delicious watermelon and made some more gluten free muesli. I was tempted to bake some banana bread, but didn't really want the oven on for an hour, given the triple digit temps outside.

I decided I really should clean the house or at least check off a few of the cleaning to do's. Got the kitchen cleaned, floors mopped and bathrooms done. Vacuuming and dusting will have to wait till tomorrow. I finished my cleaning spree with a nice long shower in my sparkly clean bathroom. I really do love afternoon showers with the sunlight streaming through the solar tube in my cute green bathroom. Pretty close to perfect, if only someone else had scrubbed it clean for me.

The rest of my afternoon has been spent puttering around the house. Some scrapping done, new recipes printed, ribbon stash organized, photos uploaded, pages put into albums....now I'm all set to veg out a bit before making dinner. A pretty typical, work and play Sunday. Here's a few pictures from the day:






And couple scrappy pages. This first page sat on my table for at least a week before getting finished. Finished it sometime last week, but hadn't photographed it yet. The second one was started yesterday and finished this afternoon. Though the photo collage was printed last week with a free 8x10 collage coupon from Walgreen's.



I'm off to decide what book from my pile I should read next.

Happy Sunday!

I spent my Sunday en route to the fabulous Em's house, laughed at Miri, ate some pizza, and purged some scrap stuff.

I listened to The Glass Castle on my way to Em's. Great stuff - if you haven't read it already.
