While everyone is amazed at how quickly summer is flying by, I feel like summer is just dragging on.
Summer is definitely not my favorite time of year. It’s way too hot for me, I don’t like the lack of routine and I really find it hard to function when it’s so hot outside. I know I mentioned that last point already. I just wanted you to know that I really mean it.
So, while everyone is enjoying their summer, I figured I’d let you know about some of the things I’ve been enjoying lately. Notice how they do not include the outdoors!
1. My desk
Lately I’ve been working from home more often than I used to… and so has DH. Which previously caused a problem since we only had one desk to work at. So, I invested in an inexpensive desk and feel like I finally have a space of my own.
It’s been great for work, blogging and of course online shopping.
2. Peach-Mango Crystal Light
I know I’ve previously posted about this one, but I’ve literally been living on this stuff!
I make a pitcher in the morning and drink it throughout the day. It’s so refreshing on hot summer days. I highly recommend it.
DS1 got this game for his 7th birthday from friends of ours. They claimed it was a good game, but since I generally don’t like games other than Rummikub, I didn’t give it a try until recently. DS1 taught me how to play and we’ve been playing every night since.
Basically, this is a card game and you strategically put down cards to get points. All the cards have sushi related names (ex: maki, sashimi, wasabi, negiri…) and have cute colorful characters on them.
The game does say it’s for ages 8+, but DS1 is only 7 and pretty good at it. DS2 is 5 years old and while he likes to play, he doesn’t play with much strategy yet.
That’s what we’ve been up to. How about you? What have you been loving this summer?
Until next time,
