Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.   Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

My little one goes to year-round school, so we have the last two weeks ahead of us, and we are crazy busy!  We’ve been running around trying to remember everything we have to get done.  We’ve got dress rehearsals and dance recital, choir performance at a baseball game, talent show, art classes, volunteer work and we are redecorating her room.  I’m suddenly very tired.  With all the hustle and bustle in the house – one member of our family is completely unphased.

Lazy Sunday

Typically I reserve Sundays for sleeping in, a big breakfast, and catching up with the family.  I try to do errands and chores on Saturday so I can rationalize doing a whole lot of nothing on Sundays.  Today was not my typical Sunday.  My little heart did not feel good last night, and the fifth time she got up (in 2 hours), I told her to just crawl in bed with us.  Of course that means that hubby and I are both hugging the edges of our King sized bed, while she sleeps comfortably in the middle.  I was surprised to wake up at 6:45 am, since I had only been asleep since 2am, but I got up, wrote out a grocery list, and that was the first step to my amazingly productive day.


My husband is a rescue diver for the county, and this weekend they have been clearing swim areas at the lake, so my lil’ heart and I joined them at Village Inn for a yummy breakfast, then went to get “real” coffee from our favorite coffee house.  On our way we came upon a little family out for a Sunday stroll.  Perhaps they were looking for a new ride?

After getting our coffee, we went grocery shopping.  I don’t really mind grocery shopping, but I do not like to do it on the weekends.  I thought that perhaps going early enough would spare us the crowds, and I was mostly right.  If I had only been in the store 20 minutes, it would have been perfect timing.  It took a bit longer than that, so it was getting crowded by the time we left.  We put away our groceries, but my productive streak still wasn’t finished (much to my surprise).  I cleaned bathrooms and litter box, did laundry, wrote cards and letters, packed up Mother’s Day gifts and replied to emails.  I even started dinner in the crock pot!

When I finally decided to sit down and check Facebook, Sabertooth was exhausted from watching me work, and needed a nap.  Another nap.  I wouldn’t give him my lap, so he took what he could get.  I don’t understand how cats can be comfortable and sleep almost anywhere!


I hope you are enjoying your Sunday, whether its productive or lazy, or a little bit of both!
