Fabulous Friday

After 9 glorious hours of bark-free sleep, everything looks more fabulous!

The girls and I filled one large city trash bag full of give away stuff yesterday AND my dad volunteered to come get it and haul it up to the church garage sale for me! One whole tall bag of stuff collected and gone in one day. This is a family record.

I'm not sure you can tell any difference.

Therefore I must keep decluttering.

Husband and I are attending an adult dinner party this weekend. I am bringing a side dish, but all my go-to side dishes are not diabetic friendly. Hmmm. Anyone have an easy side dish idea for me?

I'm in the mood to start putting away summer dresses and clothes but who am I kidding? We still have 2 good months of wearing them around here. That whole "no white after Labor day" cannot seriously apply when it is still in the 90s, can it? "Fall" in Texas is a strange season. Soon it will be "chilly" (60s-70s) in the mornings but hot in the afternoons so it's hard to know what to wear. It just doesn't seem right putting sandals on the girls' feet to wear to church in September and October. However, by the time church lets out the sandals are perfect. Maybe I'll wait until October and then put away all the really obviously summery things. Short sleeves stay out year round.

I'm torn this morning between getting school done and working on chores. Both need to happen. Perhaps we'll employ an A-B pattern today of school chore school chore. The good news is...only one more week of school until we get a week off on our new Sabbath schedule! I am really looking forward to it. A whole week to just work on the house or sew or plan for school or all of the above.

That will be even more fabulous than today!

Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. I know exactly how you feel about "fall" in Texas! It's like, should we wear long sleeve shirts and capris? lol
    Bravo on the decluttering! And I think the new school schedule is a great idea!

  2. I vote white sandals are fine until Nov 1 in regions that don't have 4 distinct seasons. (We, for instance, have three: "Lovely", "Hot", and "Hell".

  3. Melodie, I think I have actually worn long sleeves and capris!!! The problem with carpis in the fall, for me, is what shoes do you wear? Flip flops are out, open toed sandals...weird. But you can't wear just anything with capris. Skirts either. I really have issues with what to shoes to wear with skirts when it's cold. Now that the girls and I are used to skirts, I want to keep wearing them. What shoes?

  4. Brenda, I have some nice gladiator sandals that I wear with skirts. In the winter I wear boots all the time.


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
