Can I make it two days without cleaning?

I doubt it. Although I've put in a good effort at doing nothing today.

We did get up and make it to church today, which was good after totally oversleeping last week and missing it.

After church, we came back to the house and hung out. The boys picked up all of the toys they had strewn all over the living room (under the threat of not going to the lake if they didn't) and then we ran to the grocery store and picked up some munchies to take with us to the lake.

I finally remembered to check today - it is exactly 10.1 miles from my front door to the swimming area at the lake. Why is this the first summer that we've ever gone there? Could have had free entertainment for the kids for the last 11+ years...

Lunch at the lake. Always a good time.... I love when the kids can eat a meal (yes, Lunchables can be considered a meal) and I don't have to clean up after them. Throw the trash in a bag and chuck it in the nearby can. Voila, mess is gone!

It's been a while since I've done a dorky self-portrait. One of these days I'll get a picture where my glasses don't look crooked.

Just your basic swimming area. It hit a high temperature of 111 degrees today - but the humidity was fairly low and there was a good breeze, so I wasn't complaining a bit. I love hot weather!

Different view across the lake. One of these days I'm going to go exploring around the other areas and see what else I can find.

So other than doing a little bit of straightening up and folding some laundry, I haven't done any cleaning today. But, I've been looking at a few small areas around the house, and I may go ahead and tackle them, and then do a little bit of sewing. Or, I'll not clean again. Only time will tell.

11 more days until we leave. Woot!


  1. Sounds like an absolutely perfect day to me! I am hopefully going to spend some time outside with Mom tomorrow while Ava's napping and help her plant some flowers. Gotta love baby monitors! ;)

  2. Looks like a lovely day. Boy that's hot!

  3. J - I haven't seen any recent pictures of Miss Ava. Have you posted them and I've just missed them while I've been on my cleaning rampage?

    Mama S - this is unusual weather for us. If I remember correctly, it's only been 110 or 111 and above 10 times since 1888, and the last time was in the 1980's sometime.

    I love hot weather. I love cold weather. I just don't love having them both within hours of each other like we sometimes do!

    And I didn't make it two days - I'm getting ready to post more pictures. LOL

  4. Ames~No, you haven't missed any, I don't think. I need to get the pictures off my parents camera from her baptism and put on my new shiny computer, but I just haven't had the time. The last week has just been INSANE, and I feel like I'm running in circles. I need to get some laundry going while she's sleeping, and clean the cat's water bowl, and then I'll work on it, if she's not awake yet. :P

  5. I love the self-pic, crooked glasses and all!! It's you, and that in itself is awesome. (BTW...I got days and days without cleaning!)

  6. LOL Eve, I'm the same way - but I'm on a cleaning rampage right now. I only have a few more areas before I can say that my house is officially clean, and then we can go on vacation and I will be happy!
