A quieter week ahead for me. No appointments outside of the house so my hope is that I will achieve some progress with the items that need to be done. As we head into the Winter months and half of the year is gone I feel a certain sort of panic about how quickly the year is going and what I still need to and want to achieve. I look forward to the colder days at home where I can get some of the 'inside' chores done and to make sure that I am in a good place when the "Ber months arrive and all of the activity starts again. Always something to keep me busy.

I did read that the US will have another hot Summer. I will watch and see as often our Summer that follows reflects yours.

I didn't post Sunday due to the party. All went well thanks to planning and thinking ahead. Because of time constrictions with graduation activities, I ordered cakes for pick up on Saturday afternoon and a couple of deli trays for noon pick up on Sunday. I am thankful that I ordered the items for early pick up because the one cake had the wrong school colors on it. They couldn't make it work with what was already there so they had to make a new one which wouldn't be ready until noon on Sunday. Dh did the cake pick up on Sunday and that cake was the correct color.

While dh dealt with the cake, I went to get the deli trays. However, they didn't have the order ready and couldn't find me in the system. I had pre-ordered the trays earlier in the week and had my receipt with me. Once they saw the receipt and order number, then they found me. The deli manager and the deli staff made up the two trays and delivered it to our house before the guests arrived. Both times I was cool, calm and collected. I was thinking outside the box on how to make everything work. I was eyeing the pre-packaged deli meat and cheese and the rolls while I was waiting to see if the deli trays were misplaced. I was pleasantly surprised to see that some places still have customer service.

I hope to be posting more since I am on break. I have a lot to reflect on from this past year at this new job. Now that I have an idea of what autumn looked like at work and home last year, I want to evaluate what can I do now to help with things in September and October. I just did a deep spring cleaning reminiscent of the fall cleaning. I think a good decluttering this summer would be beneficial.

Now that you have had one year under your belt you know what you are able to manage.
