~Summer with Serenity~

Continuing in our library week theme, weds was spent playing with fuzzy creatures and reading more books. After that we took a little detour to a fun military family event.


Wednesday

We woke up a bit late which felt wonderful! Being able to sleep in is such a treat! But that also meant that we needed to feed ourselves and get out the door to make it to an awesome library event with animals! A group called the Teeny Tiny Farm brought an array of cute animals for petting to the lawn outside the library and Seri and I had to go.


Look at that smile...

~Summer with Serenity~

Today we had another fun event planned at the library. Keeping this week calm and still trying to kick a summer cold while embracing the summer time feeling is tough. Let me sum up what we did today. ;)

~Summer with Serenity~

The first days of freedom...the late mornings dozing instead of hustling to the bus. You eat, sleep, and laze about as you wish. What a relief. By now (with all my summer blog posts over the years) its pretty clear that I do not sit still during summer break. I have to do something fun with the kid. Have to engage her or else risk the boredom hitting her and the non stop complaining. The onslaught of noise she then directs towards me. Dear old mom can not take it! So Week one is off and a little cold isn't keeping us down.

Summer 2017 Week 1: Chill time with libraries and delights.



We went to the library to play with puzzles and ended up seeing two school friends! Its the place to be it seems. Our library also has a summer reading program and Serenity earned a free book by logging 5 books read. The book she chose is called City of Ember. She read it in class this year but loved it so much she had to get a copy of her very own. The puzzles were a nice calm activity for her and I to work on together. Really enjoyed the quiet activity.

Wine Subscription...is it worth it?

For Valentine's Day my hubby was sweet enough to indulge me in something that really matters to me.He got me something that I love and treasure....wine. He indulged me in wine. Now I can have that glass that makes the day feel better everyday. OK not everyday...every other day ha ha. Back to the point...he got me a subscription through a company online called Winc. You sign up and can get them to select, or as I prefer you select, several bottles of wine for a decent fee and they ship it to your home in a timely manner. I think the costs are appropriate and fair. The wines look beautiful and are carefully selected. I have yet to drink them due to how pretty they are and due to the fact that I chose to drink my big bottle of sake instead! :) I will slowly get to them and write up a review for each but for now here is what I was sent.
