    Katrina, it is harder go for the water in the winter. Sometimes I warm up the water as if I am going to have tea or I just set out water to get to room temperature and then drink it.

    We started working on prepping the yard for a small retaining wall this weekend. Some of those plants that I wanted to dig and replant will have to wait until either the fall or next year. This will be a summer long project on the weekends.

    I'm also going to start adding "Holiday Spruce Up" to the list this week. There are a few things that I want to get done before September. I'll add detailed steps to help me work in small time blocks. It doesn't seem overwhelming that way.

    It is harder in Winter. I like your idea because I think it is the cold water that I am not enjoying. Maybe I will bring out my large drink bottle and add some lemon juice or other flavouring and see how that goes,

    You have a long and varied list this week, l love that you are working on the holiday spruce up, makes the holidays seem closer.

    Jess, it's always a nice treat when there is less on the schedule, isn't it?

    It's only Tuesday and I feel like I'm behind. LOL! I added some things to the list that had to get done this week which I hadn't thought about on Sunday. One was finally getting to summer prep around here. It got so warm quickly that I had to get the air conditioning on Sunday. I had to take the covers off the air conditioners. I had to change out the winter comforter and sheets for the summer set.

    The second thing was preparing for the cable technician for Wednesday. We are switching our cable and internet provider tomorrow to cut back on costs. I had to clean out the computer armoire and the entertainment center so the technician can get to the wires easily. (A nice bonus to all of this cleaning is that we will now get the Hallmark Channel. I will be able to watch even more Christmas movies this upcoming holiday season! :D)

    The third thing was dealing with medical insurance issues. Oh, the joys... These phone calls take up so much time. I really do need to put them down in my planner to remind myself why I feel behind.

    Friday through Monday I will be spending time with friends and family so if I want to tackle something off the Holiday Spruce Up list, it will have to be Wednesday and/or Thursday.
