I’m feeling so relaxed this morning! We have this wide open weekend with no plans which, as I mentioned last week, I NEEDED to get my life back in order. Despite my continued frustration with the impending start to school/ virtual fiasco, there’s been a bunch of good stuff swirling around in my head so far this weekend. Let me share!
It’s another absolutely beautiful morning. I opted for writing in our sunroom this morning, which is a room that I feel I definitely “under use” (for some reason, because it’s arguably the best room in our house!). When the kids were little we used it as sort of a playroom space, which was awesome since it’s right off the kitchen area, but a couple years ago we bought a nice desk to put in place of the toy bins. This past year it was one of our designated “homework spots” in the house (and became Ethan’s primary virtual school location).
We have an old table in there too that has been used for everything from doing puzzles to school projects to eating lunches at to being Asher’s preferred virtual school spot.
I use the sunroom desk when I want a change of scenery from my basement office, or to just sit and pay bills at, etc. sometimes. It’s really such a pleasant room. I don’t just sit and read in this room nearly enough, despite a very comfortable glider that looks out to the yard! I really need to make a point to enjoy this room more often. I do sit on the futon and read with the boys in here sometimes.
2. OUTSIDE/ NATURE
I spent a long time outside yesterday doing some work in my garden, weeding my rock beds and trimming some bushes. It was the nicest day with just a hint of coolness in the air that whispered that fall is around the corner. (Bring it on! Love fall so much!) As we had been away, my garden was growing and growing with no one here to pick anything, so this is what I ended up with!
