Happy Monday ” What’s Up




We had a lot of family errands to do -so nothing real exciting in my neck of the woods. It’s nice to have hubby off on weekends after working retail for 20 pus years -he now works for our town and works M-F job (the first of our marriage) .

This week the only thing I have going on  this week is working on our school facebook page as new parents join and old parents freak out. School starts here Aug 9th ; Early  start and early to get out but the first month is always rocky . For some the move to an online School is too much and give up. But after 6 years I try to help and calm nerves (virtual hand holding)  & encourage them to keep on going.  Since my son graduated we are in the mist of shopping & getting ready for Move In day at college on Aug 12th. Look for some fun projects coming up. And follow us on Instagram on Aug 12th Move in Day.

Don’t Miss our Christmas in July post on Friday’s : as I celebrate on all my blogs the joy of Christmas with books,crafts ,recipes & more. The holidays are Coming.
