Enjoying One of the Last Sundays of Summer

Today was a great day. I’ve finally come to accept the fact that there will be no more sleeping in  for me in this life.  If I can sleep past 8 AM anymore, that is doing pretty good!  That being said, I’m able to get up and tackle my day in the morning.  We were ready and running errands and left the house shortly after 10 this morning.  ON A SUNDAY!  So after our errands were tackled and lunch in our bellies we came home where I did some work and supervised Tot playing in the yard.

I finally blew up the Hopper ball thingy she got for Christmas.  Watching her try to figure out to jump on it while staying on it was pretty entertaining.  Then, with a little help from Hubster we put the pedals back on her little bike.  We had removed those in June after I read some blogs about how much easier it is for kids to learn to ride a bike with the pedals removed so they learn to balance and “coast” and it’s not so hard for them to balance when the pedals are back on. The training wheels are off of course.  So she attempted to “ride” her bike like a big girl with her pedals and I’m quite proud of the progress she’s making.  Obviously, she isn’t a pro, but I think that the whole no-pedals: ditch-the-training wheels- thing really did help.  It’s so cute to see her get frustrated, think about giving up, but push through and try again.  Also major bonus points to Hubster when he did his Dad thing holding her steady while she pedaled!

After wearing ourselves out, I watered my very dry garden. (Can it just please rain already?!)  Then we came inside and cleaned up and I made an awesome dinner that my husband actually looked forward to 🙂  Chicken Alfredo (I used those awesome twirly Cavatappi noodles and Tyson grilled chicken strips) and since I don’t do alfredo I had plain ol’ spaghetti sauce.  It was wonderful! Plus I have enough leftover that I don’t have to worry about what to pack for my work lunch tomorrow!

Tot’s in bed. My laundry is in the washer.  I found enough quiet time to sit down and bang out a blog and now it’s time for me to read my book!  I’ve finally made it to Book 6 of the Outlander series in my rereading adventure!  Now that I’ve finally bought my copy of  Written In My Own Hearts Blood I am so ready to be done rereading and start Book 8 🙂

I hope everyone else’s Sunday was just as wonderful!
