Super Hot Weekend Recap

Hello, blog friends.
Wow it was hot here this weekend!
Doug was camping with his brothers this weekend so I was left to my own devices. It was one of those weekends that felt busy but unproductive the entire time, and only when I uploaded these photos to create this post did I realize where all that time went. It was a really good weekend. :o) Come, I'll show you...
 
The Jay-cat offered assistance with Project Life. As per the usual, all my photos are printed, trimmed down, corners rounded, and inserted into the little pockets, but I still have journaling to do.
 
 
My biggest news from the weekend is that I started my yoga class on Saturday. I haven't practiced much {hardly at all} over the past couple of years due to a shoulder injury, and it felt sooooo good to be back on the mat and in a classroom setting. The class I'm taking is at a local community college on Saturday mornings, and I'm sure you'll be hearing more about it as the semester rolls on. It was awesome, awesome, awesome!
 
 
Saturday night was spent with my girl C ~ girls night out, then in. We went to Whole Foods and shared a cheese plate, drank a little wine, and then bought flowers and breakfast supplies on our way out.
 
 
Doug was away for the night, so Carrie and her pup {Marcus} spent the night with Lucky and me. Marcus and Lucky are best friends. ♥ ♥ {and so are Carrie and I}
 

Sunday morning found me headed to IKEA to meet my friend Janae and her littles. IKEA isn't a great place for four-year old twins, so we dropped the kids off at the IKEA play area and did an hour's worth of power shopping. Really cool - you can drop your kiddos off in IKEA's play area for one hour, free of charge. They give you a little pager just in case they need you to come back, and the kids had a great time. Afterwards we all had lunch in the cafeteria, and ice cream cones before heading our separate way.


Worst part was coming out of IKEA in the mid-day heat, getting in the hot car and going to the grocery store. Just inside the front door of our local supermarket was a stack of jack-o-lanterns and it gave me hope that the cool temps of autumn are just around the corner. Somewhere...


Rexy doesn't seem to mind the heat this summer...

Last night, even though it was hot, I sat outside for a bit and enjoyed the setting sun, wondering how my weekend drifted by so quickly...


And the next thing you know, it's Monday morning and time to start all over again.

Autumn approaching means two things around here: hunting season for Doug, and me being left to my own devices. I feel some creativity brewing, and the thought of Christmas in our future. What does the onset of Autumn look like for you?

Have a lovey week, sweet friends!

PS: All photos were taken with my iPhone 4S...still no word on my camera repair status.

Autumn for us is still all about "back to school."

It's about this time I year that I go into mourning. Where did the summer go? Why didn't I take better advantage of all those beautiful days and get outside more? you really think I would learn, but each year it feels the same - like I spent my summer in front of a computer...

Project Life! I can't seem to keep up with it....ever. I love Summer as I am always cold but Autumn is my favorite of all seasons. Looking forward to it.
P.S. Hope you get some good news about your camera soon.

I like the sound of your weekend a lot. I've been considering starting yoga, but have yet to find a beginners' class.

Looks like a great weekend! I am one of those girls who hates to let go of summer. The kids go back to school in three weeks, our latest start yet. So even though we are pretty busy, I feel like I still have a little summer left. enjoy!

Sian said...

I always love Autumn. It feels like a time of new beginnings. Mixed feelings this year, though, with TTO heading off to university..

But the new Ikea catalogue arrived here on Saturday, and that always cheers me up!

Karen said...

Sounds like you had a perfect weekend.

alexa said...

Lovely mix of things in your weekend, though the jack o lanterns look a bit premature to me by about two months! I am not thinking about autumn yet - not till the start of October :).

Becky said...

Autumn is back to uni for Penny and then some relaxing weekends for us hopefully after a summer of remodelling the kitchen! Looking forward to visiting family, crafting and chilling. Hope you have an enjoyable autumn and great news about your camera xx

I don't really want to think about autumn yet....we are having such an unusually good summer....that I really want to hang onto it a bit longer!

Audrey said...

What a nice weekend! Autumn around here means back-to-school, soccer season, corn mazes, pumpkin patches, trips to the mountains, the apple orchard, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin scones, Halloween fun.....I LOVE IT!!!! (Hope you get some camera news soon ~ GOOD news!!!)

Sounds like a lovely weekend, Deb! Autumn for us means cool, crisp days, football and the leaves turning beautiful shades of red, yellow and orange. Hope you receive good news about your camera soon.

I loved hearing about your weekend. I spent mine with two girlfriends. We went to Portland, Oregon and had a blast. This fall will be busy because the fall quarter is always the busiest! I love it but always find it a bit daunting as well.

Amy said...

Weather wise we have been the direct opposite!My weekend ended up being far busier than I expected with house guests for five days!

Lisa-Jane said...

All hail the Ikea creche! Ours love it and ask to go to the big shop with the boats (ours is right on Southampton docks when the cruiseliners come in) But now I need cheese...

Gail said...

Sounds like a really nice weekend. Pumpkins in August? That's too early. So far the only sign of Autumn coming is some of the trees are starting to change but that's more from lack of rain. I hope you weren't bothered by the sand storms the other day.
