Good morning blog-land. I’ve been a little MIA around here but I am catching up this morning over coffee. I like quiet Sunday mornings like this when the house is still asleep and I can blog-hop for a little while.
The past few weeks have been full of rainy days but we have also had some beautiful weather in between. This weekend has been gorgeous in the high 70’s so far. I’ve been crocheting, watching shows and reading as well but when the temps are nice like this on weekends, I love being outdoors after spending most of the work-week in my cubicle.

Onto my updates…

Happy last Sunday in April. That was fast. It has been a quiet few weeks around here. I am still slow on my reading but my current read is a good one, so hopefully I can finish that up this week. Also of note, we had free ice-cream at work this week for Bring Your Kids to Work day which was nice. Here’s mine:

Hello everyone. Happy Sunday Happy November. Happy reading.
I am sending my thoughts and prayers to the people in California with the major fires burning there now. It is so scary to see the news.

I went MIA for a little bit on blog land recently, because I was in Puerto Rico on vacation for one week. See the palm trees above? Yep. This past week was my first week back home and I am still kind of on vacation mode. Going to beautiful, sunny Puerto Rico was amazing. It is funny how I got used to the warm sunny temps (high 80’s) and going to the beach in October, meanwhile back home we had cold Fall temps and shorter days. We spent the days by the pool and the beach as well as sightseeing. We also visited some family.

September has arrived so fast it seems and I am not ready to say goodbye to summer yet. Labor Day is here in the U.S. already and it’s nice to have a long 3 day weekend. I really love lazy summer days and quiet summer evenings, I have more energy during this time of year. Well, it’s not quite over just yet so I will definitely be hanging onto summer as long as I can. I enjoy the Fall season too but there is something special about the summer months.

One thing I am dreading about September being here is my morning work commute on Tuesday since schools are back in so I’m back to my 45+ minute drive due to traffic jams. During the off school months it’s just a 20 minute drive. *sigh* I am going to have to start listening to audio books in my car in the mornings, I need to download the app and hook it up to my bluetooth.

Hello everyone. I haven’t done an updates/mailbox post in a few weeks. I’ve been enjoying my summer, I hope you have been as well. I went away on vacation, came back and stood on vacation mode for a few weeks after that. I took the pic above by the lake on vacation, it was so peaceful and I enjoyed the view very much.

We’ve had a rainy couple of weeks here with flash flooding yesterday and I’m hoping the rain lets up. With all the rain yesterday I didn’t go out to run my usual Saturday errands but I finished reading my book so that was good.

I also enjoyed doing this on vacation last month, crochet. There is something to be said for not having any set schedule, sleeping in, staying up late, taking an afternoon nap and soaking in the sun every day.
