Happy Monday  


Is this really the last day of summer ? 
Well, yes according to the calender, but not weather-wise, 
because it is going to be a hot week by us. 

Mr. J is almost done with Naisha's room and on Thursday and 
Friday it is my turn to work on it. I am going to paint. 
She picked a nice colour and I can't wait for it to be done and 
ready for her to move back into. 
I am debating if I should paint the living-room at the same time.... 
I found a very nice greyer colour (my walls are already grey, 
but this one is darker) .... Let's see :o) 

Have a niiiice day !

Nothing better than a lazy day with some good (licorice) tea and a book, or a movie. 
I wish I had one of those days today...  :o) 

I definitely need a venti white chocolate mocha from Starbucks today !!

Wednesday Inspiration
........ and back from vacation

We are back from our vacation at Niagara Falls.  
Well, we have been back since Saturday..... 
And what a great time we had. 
The vacation was the perfect family vacation. 
Lots of fun. Tons of bonding time. Good laughs. Drama. Joy. Joking. 
And the kids had such a great time. It warms my heart to see all 
the (little) cousins having fun and creating memories. 

And here we are....
Last week before school starts next week. 
But I think we are all ready. In one way or another....

Have a great day

Enjoying Sunday 

We are enjoying our Sunday.
It is very hot today and we just came back from running a few errands. 
Ada and I are going to jump in the pool now to get cooled down.
Later I am going to a new Home Goods store they opened not too far from here. 
Could they have a new lantern for our little house maybe :o) ?? 

Have a great Sunday

This sign is very cute. 
I might print it and hang it in a small frame at our little house

Happy Happy Thursday !

Check the big planter. 
Unfortunately my living room is too small to have a big planter like that.
But I like it a lot. It looks nice. 

Have a great Wednesday

Happy Tuesday. 
Oh boy are we getting a lot of rain by us today. It is pouring outside. 
Totally fall weather. And I kind of like it. 
I am enjoying the summer, but fall is a great time of the year. It gets darker 
earlier, big comfy sweaters, scarves (oh yes!!), candles e.t.c. 
Each season has its charm, and fall has a lot of it for sure :o)

How is the weather by you? 

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Happy Sunday 

We are up and ready to enjoy this sunny Sunday. 

We are putting up some new lights outside (I bought a really nice new lamp
 for the front of the house) and fixing another light in the basement. 
Is is all about new light fixtures today :o) 

Have a great Sunday. 
I have to run to the store to get some burger buns. 
We are making big nasty delicious home-made burgers later today :o)

Love this picture from Tine K Home's own home. 
Love those bamboo chairs. 
Who do not want to sit there with a big cup of coffee and relax 
for hours. I know I would. 

Happy Wednesday !

Happy Tuesday

Tuesday it is ! 

Did I tell you that the boys finished the roof. Oh yes! 
Next is Naisha's room. 
She is so excited to pick a new colour for her walls. 
And new curtains, a new ceiling lamp and a few more things. 

Have a great Tuesday !

Day-trip to Pennsylvania

My girls 

My Mr. J a.k.a. Grill Master 


The readers, who has been following my blog for a while, know
that every summer, we are invited to a big BBQ in Pennsylvania by
one of Mr. J's co-workers, who has a house there. 
And we love to go there. All of us. 
We went yesterday and it was fun as always.  
I did not take too many pictures this year, because after eating, we spent 
most of the time by the bonfire listening to music and talking... 

Sunday already. 
My days off went by so fast. 
Ada has 2 of her friends come over to play and swim in the 
pool this afternoon for a few hours, and after that, I am throwing myself 
on the couch to watch last nights episode of Hannibal. 
That show is getting too good :o) 

Have a great Sunday !!
