This week was about getting back on track. It is so hard to come home from vacation, isn't it? Sheesh. I think we all wish we were still at my parents' house, sitting around reading books and eating ice cream every day. But that's not real life.
Luckily we had a rainstorm blow our way. It came out of nowhere and left us drenched. Rainstorms like that are the very best part of an Arizona summer. Nothing lifts our spirits and cools the air quite like them. We are very happy to be entering monsoon season. Hopefully it will be long and plentiful.
Before I go any further, are you watching Poldark on PBS? Hurry, episode 1 expires in 2 days! It kept me company while I finished up some sewing projects this week and now I am hooked. I'm serious, it is really good.
If this week was about getting settled again at home, next week will be about getting back into our routine. We have cleaning and laundry and swimming to do. But first, we have a mouse to catch! It turns out that the mouse I saw about a month ago didn't just magically disappear like I hoped it would. In fact, it completely took over our pantry while we were gone and I haven't had the energy to do anything about it yet but fret. Our cat is officially fired. And the sticky mousetraps I set out didn't do the the trick. Help!
I hope you have a good (mouse free) weekend!
