Hello, my lovelies! It has been quite a week. I, for one, am exhausted and looking forward to spending the afternoon quietly, paying bills, writing, and reading. Two different dance studio interviews, a baseball game, one eight-mile bike ride, one 18-mile bike ride, mowing the lawn, running errands, laundry – it is all a sign that school is all-too-quickly approaching. This week, we have school registration, dance school registration, a concert, more cheerleading practice, and who knows what else will pop up during the week. See? A quiet afternoon is just what the doctor ordered.
|Hello, gentle creature!|
This morning, I awoke early to the sounds of glorious songbirds. Not quite able to go back to sleep but not able to keep my eyes open, it was probably one of the nicest ways to wake up. I did get out of bed to see if I could find any of my winged serenaders. Instead, I saw a doe step out from the woods and onto the lawn. This has been happening with relative frequency since the weather cooled off, and it is something of which I will never get tired. Once I get through my stack o’bills this afternoon, my plan is to sit out on the porch and read/daydream/listen to the birds and hope that more deer decide to forage in my yard. It is just too cool to be that close to nature, as long as nature stays outside.
Yesterday, I officially announced my
insanity intention to participate in the It-along hosted by Jill and Christina. At 44 hours, it is quite the formidable audiobook, but I am not certain it is a book I would ever want to read. My goal is to listen to it at work and hope that by the time I get home in the evening, I won’t be terrified to crawl into bed.
Reviewed this week:
- No Safe Haven by Kayla and Kimberley Woodhouse
- The Age of Desire by Jennie Fields
- Tempest by Julie Cross
As much as I would love to stay and chat, my stack o’bills is staring at me, making me feel guilty for ignoring it for so long. I suppose I should pretend to be responsible and get to it. I hope everyone has a lovely Sunday and a wonderful week. Happy reading!
I have no vested interest in all that foliage since I wasn't the one to plant them all, which means I am okay with them eating all of it. LOL!
Those deer will continue to be charming – until they start to eat all of your foliage! Like my rabbits that I love watching play in my backyard but on a much bigger scale. I like them to hang in my yard and play but they need to stay the heck out of my plants!
Thanks, Jenny! The nature helps but bills always suck. I'm glad I finished them!
Ugh! No body likes bills girlie! At least you have some beautiful nature to look at as you write out those checks. Have a great week!

LOL! I'm a chicken too. This is going to be extremely interesting.
Sounds busy! The picture is lovely. And I think you're crazy to read It, but I'm a chicken. 🙂
My recent post The Sunday Salon – August 19, 2012
Not as much as I would have liked. My visitor ended up coming back with two other friends this evening. I think I will have to name her if she keeps stopping by.
We ended up seeing three more during the day. I love it so much. The bills unfortunately took too long. But they are done. I hope this means relaxing after work tomorrow!
Oh what a lovely visitor you have! And I hope you got some quiet time after that crazy busy week!

At my old home we use to find deer. I always loved seeing them. Happy bill paying.
Thanks, Megan! I just finished my stack of paperwork, and am ready to do just that!
It's been an absolutely beautiful weekend here, and I've been enjoying some porch reading, too. While deer don't usually come out to play here, we've got a bunch of squirrels and rabbits and birds that are more than happy to keep me company while I read. Hope you enjoy your relaxing afternoon and are recharged for the week ahead!
