My mind and activities have been focused on the start of school next week.
Last weekend I went to Wally-World and picked up school supplies and this cute glass apple candy jar. Isn't it cute? It was marked down on clearance for $4.50. Dear son picked out the bubble gum to put in it. I'll use the gum as a reward for good behavior.
A baby bunny got stuck in one of our window wells.
Hubby got her out with a net. She was "jack-rabbit fast" out of there as soon as he put her down.
We've had lots of frogs in the wells, but this is the first mammal. Hopefully we won't get any skunks or raccoons.
I got a new rug for the entry-way.
I found it at Home Goods.
It was a fraction of the price compared to others I've found in the store and on-line.
The table is an antique that belonged to my grandparents. I've been looking for a mirror to go above the table and a buffet-style lamp to go on it.
I may replace the small plant that is there with a fern. I've never had very good luck with ferns though for some reason.
We are hoping to go for a nature hike/walk sometime over the weekend. Kind of an end of summer family outing.
Maybe I'll pack a picnic.
I hope your week was a good one.
School bells are ringing, loud and clear;
Vacation's over, school is here.
We hunt our pencils and our books,
And say goodbye to fields and brooks,
To carefree days of sunny hours,
To birds and butterflies and flowers.
But we are glad school has begun.
For work is always mixed with fun.
When autumn comes and the weather is cool,
Nothing can take the place of school.
