Three weeks

We have 3 weeks of a new school year under our belts now.

Everyone has eased into the new routine with just a few snags here and there (the boys WOULD NOT get out of bed when asked in the morning….more on that later), but for the most part all is good. I, for one, am enjoying some quiet time and mommy space.

The dogs, on the other hand, have had quite an adjustment.  It is pretty quiet around here now, and they are used to the kids constantly playing with them, so they are sad when they leave…

And oh so happy when they return home.

I am back in my groove of training again.  Swim, bike, run, surf.

And lazy afternoons in the hammock reading before the after school frenzy starts.

Skye, three is a crowd. Just sayin’.

We are already almost halfway through the month of September!   Can you believe it?  Halloween is just around the corner!  I am so ready for Fall and cooler weather.   Running has been such a challenge this last month with the humidity and heat.  It will be nice to take a run and not feel like I am suffocating.  Until then I am toughing it out and getting it done.

This weekend will be surfing!  Bill is going to get in the water again after more than 3 months of recouping from his multi-fractured foot.  So ready to have my buddy back again. I have missed his shenanigans in the water. I told him last week after a 7 day in a row surf fest (storm in the Gulf…we live for those) “It was so fun, but it is just not the same without you there.  I miss being with you on the water. It is like part of me is missing”

    Yay for real life and routines and all that good stuff. All that food looks so yummy. Will you come plan my meals? 😉

    I feel that way when David is out of town. It’s fun for a while, but after a while it just feels weird like half of me is missing. 🙁

    We will be in Houston for Thanksgiving. How far are you from there? (You can email me).

      Kriste, grab Cooking Fresh from Fine Cooking Mag. It comes out 4 times per year and is filled with great recipes. I love the Fall one best for sure. We are several hours south of Houston. Wish we could meet up! One day soon!

    Food magazines are so old-school, mama! You need Pinterest, stat!

      These magazines are da bomb. LOVE the recipes. One comes out for each season and I can cook for several months for my family from each one. Plus the food is fresh and healthy and seasonal. I am on Pinterest daily and LOVE it!
