What a whirlwind this week was! Last Sunday morning, I wrote my Coffee Talk before heading to the airport for our trip to Maine, and I’m already back home and getting ready to face another week of work and appointments and family commitments.
It was a nice week, weather-wise, but it was very hot and humid by Maine standards. At least we got to enjoy the lake, although it was too windy most of the time to take the motorboat out for tubing, which the kids had been looking forward to.
And then Paul had a harrowing experience on his sailboat, where he ended up being towed back to shore by a nice family who saw him struggling. Here he is on one of our calmer lake days…
So yeah, the week was not without its fair share of drama, but all in all, we can’t complain! We did some sightseeing, had a lot of good seafood, and I got to visit with my uncles and one of my aunts. We also got a decent family picture for the first time in forever.
Since we got home on Friday night, we’ve sent our youngest off to overnight camp and hosted friends by the pool. (Or in the pool, rather. It’s so hot here, almost everyone ended up in the pool at some point.) I still haven’t unpacked yet, but I should have time to tackle that this afternoon after church.
I plan to spend some time tomorrow planning blog content for August. It’s always a strange time to plan for. No one wants to shop for summer clothes, and fall is still a ways off. Plus, many of us have already blown our August clothing budget at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
It’s a good time to discuss where trends are going and how to style them, but even that seems a bit premature. All that to say, let me know what you want to see from me in August!
It will be a quiet week around here with our youngest out of the house, but I’m sure it will fly by. They all do anymore! I have some appointments lined up, and a bunch of work to get caught up on, so I’ll be busy. I also hope to enjoy some pool time. I haven’t had much of that so far, and summer will be over before we know it.
Okay, I’m going to sign off here and get ready for the day. Have a good one!
