Miscellaneous Monday…on a Tuesday….

my intentions were good.

but, alas, life happened and blogging didn’t.

which is fine.

and good.

but, still, i am *trying* to get back into a habit of blogging on a regular basis.


from Father’s Day…

i think these kids are stinkin’ lucky and blessed to have him for their daddy.


our turtle Wally, laid four eggs yesterday.

because of that, the kids decided ‘he’ should be called ‘Wallyanna’ instead of Wally.

i have serious doubts about these eggs hatching, but it would be some kind of fun if they would.

we dug around online trying to find what we could about red-eared slider turtles and are hoping for the best.

summer means afternoons frolicking in the pool and eating popsicles and suntan lines.

it also means a constant stream of dirty towels and wet swimsuits.

job security for the mama, right?

we are still (trying to be patiently) waiting to get into our own house.

which is both frustrating and challenging.

 i’m still wishing i could be housekeeping and making our house a home, but in the meantime, i’m trying to find purpose in other things.

i’m LOVING the chance to work in our vegetable garden and watching all the produce ripen.

we’re eating fresh cucumbers and summer squash and zucchini on a daily basis.

by next week, i think i’ll have green beans to eat and preserve.

can’t wait.

i’ve been doing a 40-day running challenge and i’m within 11 days of it being over.

in some ways, i can’t wait til i’m done!

it gets so hot out here that if i don’t run in the early mornings, i nearly die in the heat and sun later on in the day and evening.

the perks of early morning runs include watching the Marvelous sunrises, and the feeling of accomplishment once that run is done for the day.

i can’t get enough of the sky out here in Kansas.

can’t get enough.

  1. I noticed that you run early in the mornings and wondered how in the world you hold up for the rest of the day. Hope you get to sneak a nap in sometime. The photos are gorgeous.

  2. Hey, I missed a couple of posts here! I love that you’re blogging again!
    I knew you’re running a lot, but a 40 day challenge? Wow, you go girl!! It’s hard enough for me to go 3 mornings a week! 🙂 And yes about the heat and nearly dying if you wait too late in the day…
    All the sunset and sunrise pictures are amazing. Seriously, I think Kansas takes the cake in that department!
