The weekend we didnt want to let the weather go


You know those weekends you dont want them to end ... I REALLY didnt want this one to end.  Mainly because we got a break from the horrendous heat wave we had last week. It was just awful last week.  We couldnt spent more then 5 minutes outside with the dogs & everyone was panting (the dogs) & sweating (me)... it was record breaking all week long.

Then Friday, a storm came through.... & it changed everything.  You can see the wind blowing here...

This was the beginning of our weekend change...

I started my work from home on Friday (GLORIOUS) & ended up signing out a little early - because good ole Physical Therapy time.  This week, we're working on trying to get my arm behind my back. OHHH NO - its not happening. Its so bad.  I will say, I'm 3 weeks in & I am seeing a tiny bit of progress, but they told me it would be a slow going process.  

I got out of PT & then headed to my new favorite place....

I am now slightly obsessed keeping my car clean. Its like it was when I first bought it. I'm discouraging foods & drinks & if there's any trash, at every stop at home, I'm reminding Hubby to clean his side out.  There's worse obsessions in the world.

I hadnt been able to cook all week because the heat. It was so bad, we didnt want to add any heat to the issue with turning on the oven.... so we basically did pick up every night last week. I had all my food from Hello Fresh so I made sure to get one dinner in so it wouldnt get wasted.  OMGGGGGG - this recipe was a new one & it was AMAZING!!!! It was Edamame Cauliflower Rice fritters... with a roasted broccoli salad. This may have been one of my favorite recipes I've made from them.

We were getting ready to settle in for the night when we noticed a hot spot on Harvey Dent that he had irritated by licking... by the end of the night - it was REALLY flaming irritated.  So we had to do a rush drive down to Feeder's Supply to get him a cone of shame... & as we were checking out, Hubby found these PJ's. We know they are for cute purposes - but we knew they would cover the area on his leg. Worth a shot -

Plus - SO DARN CUTE!!!!

Ready for bed!


We woke up & it was actually chilly. It was just wonderful.  This started my time of being outside. All weekend, I just tried to stay outside as much as possible.  Soak up the cool air.

I ended up going to the park for an early morning walk &  no one was there. It was all mine.  

I love  our little park because they have a art installation that highlights local art work by some of the local schools. I always love seeing what they change it out with.

& every month, they change out a story that is focused throughout the walking path. Every station is like 0.10 miles apart & I actually love reading the new story each month.

This story was so cute. I actually was a little teary eyed on the last page. It was so sweet & I hope people take their kids to enjoy this little park attraction. I love kids books anyways - theres such sweet stories & life lessons in them.

I got home & it was play time with the dogs...

& then we noticed Harvey Dent did this....

Drats... ok Harvey - into the cone of shame you go....

It doesnt stop him playing.

My morning was just full of hanging out with Hubby back in the woods, reading outside, more playing with dogs.

We ended up going out & ate outside at a restaurant - where it was funny.  Hubby ended up running into someone who came up & asked what his name was. Ends up, they used to skate together over 40 years ago. Talk about a small world!

We got home & honestly, just sat outside & talked & just did not want the day to end.  We didnt want to give up the cool night.


I had the worst nights sleep. I had an awful dream where I was all alone & had a stroke, & I couldnt get help. & I was laying in my home & I just kept worrying about my dogs thinking no one was going to ever find any of us - it was awful. I ended up waking up at 2 am having a panic attack. I hate dreams that do that to me. I could not go back to sleep. I couldnt breath - I felt like I was smothering.  I ended up turning on the TV &tried to distract myself.  Thank you RuPaul's Drag Race.

I ended up falling back to sleep near 4 am - but was back up at 6:30am.

I was ok with it because I headed right back outside again. & I needed a sweater - it was so chilly!  Talk about all the puppy energy flowing with this cool air!

I ended up finishing my book that I had just started on Saturday.  It was so good - I really enjoyed it.

With it being Father's Day - we went up to go to the cemetery so I could give some shout out to my dad.  & because its Father's Day - I always used to get his gifts at Tractor Supply & ever since he passed away, I still stop there & get something for the horses.  I was so choked up throughout the day.  4 years.  A part of my heart is just gone.  Words cant describe how much I miss him.

Hubby & I went to Culvers & ate outside... & enjoyed a couple next to us that had their 2 dogs with them enjoying some pup cups. Look at this unhealthy food - YUMMM! (Grilled cheese for me)

We went over & spent some time with mom & took care of the horses & then it was time to come home & a little bit more back yard reading, relaxing & dog playing - usual weekend stuff. Hello my life.

& now, we bid adieu to the beautiful break in the weather. So glad it landed on Saturday & Sunday because we're back in the triple digits this week & stay in the 90's for the next 2 weeks... so glad we had this little enjoyable time.

How was your weekend?

Did you do anything for Father's Day?

Are you obsessed about keeping your car clean or have you given up?
