Good afternoon!! I hope today finds you in some mode of relaxation and rest. I grew up with a fairly common Sunday routine, church, home, relaxing. If no church then sleeping in, Sunday papers, and relaxing. I admit I miss the days of blue laws and no shopping or rushing around on Sundays.
This past week has been busy. The week before my daughter went out and applied for many different jobs in town. I’m happy to say she was hired to work part time in a sporting goods store, it’s a small chain and sells mostly shoes, clothing and some equipment. She is enjoying thus far.
Nick was moved up to varsity wrestling due to an injury of another athlete. I felt bad the other boy broke a rib and is out, he is also a senior so it’s his last year of high school sports. Nick wrestled in our district tournament and took 3rd place which qualified him for the regional tournament. The two day event was the last two days and talk about intense! Nick was in a pool of 16 in his 113 pound weight class. I’m so very proud of him, he finished tied for 6th place, or in the top 8. As a 2nd year wrestler and one who wrestled JV all season this was very good. We saw some amazing athletes from 106lb up to heavyweight–285lb.
The regional wrestling tournament was just 40 min south of Jacksonville and so my daughter Caitie was able to join me for the tournament and I stayed Friday night at her apartment. I love it when she says, well yeah, you and dad pay my rent, of course you can stay…ha ha. I had a really nice visit with her.
My reading has been all over the place. I finished just one book, and decided to abandon another book I’d been really looking forward to. I just keep telling myself there are too many good books and not everyone I think will appeal to me does. Hoping to finish the audio I’ve been listening to, and to choose something new. I’ve got an audible account and MANY audio books in my library.
So today Adrienne is working, Nick has gone to a friend’s house and Kevin and I have a few hours of quiet. He wants to clean out a hall closet we have. It’s used for linens, luggage, extra toilet paper and tissues, and “stuff”. Do you have a closet like this? It needs cleaning out, organizing, decluttering. I’m not looking forward to this task. We need a few things from the grocery too. It’s a gorgeous sunny day after 2-3 days of clouds and drizzle. Sorry my northern friends, sunny and low 70’s is the forecast, so lovely.
One last thing, I’ve shared pictures on social media, but here is a little collage of our new dining room furniture.
Wishing you the start to a wonderful week!!
