Lately & Labor Day Weekend

Sorry for the lack of posts this week.
It's been pretty crazy around here.
Last week was my first full week back at work
and to say the least, it has been interesting getting back
into a morning routine. Each morning I seem to pop up minutes
before my alarm, in a panic that I've missed it.
On Tuesday I woke up thinking it was Wednesday, that I had
somehow managed to sleep through an entire day and in my 
semi-conscious state I thought this was entirely rational.

Labor Day weekend was nice.
Friday JD and I went sailing with a couple of friends,
one of whom is also an instructor so he gave us a mini lesson
on how to fly the spinnaker, my new favorite thing.
I love it, it's like a giant kite.
Saturday we finally finished work on our little boat.
Sunday we went to the beach house for stand up paddle boarding
in the bay and a barbecue. And Monday we were supposed to take
our boat out for the first time, but the winds were too strong.
Yes, you are supposed to hope for wind when you sail,
but we're pretty sure that at least one thing will break 
once we get it into the water and decided that
we'd rather be safe than sorry, or stranded.
It's an old boat.


  1. Haha I laughed out loud when I was reading the part about waking up thinking it was a different day, I do that all the time!

    p.s. nice photos, they look so relaxing.

  2. Are you a teacher? Or do you work in a school?


Thank you so much for taking the time to read and share your thoughts. I love hearing from you!
