  1. Library day! And my daughter and youngest son got their medals for completing the summer reading program. They each got to choose a book, too, and my son chose The Great Mouse Detective. <3
  2. Watching House Hunters International with my kids. It was very relaxing, and they really got into it.
  3. Writing group.

  1. Kids had good check-ups with the eye doctor. My daughter needs glasses, but only for reading and any near work; she's farsighted as it turns out. She chose some nice lavender frames and they were completely covered by insurance, so that was a nice bonus.
  2. Happy lunch with the kids.
  3. Managed to scrape together my word count for the day. So far I'm on schedule to be done September 30.

  1. My mala bracelets finally arrived after a delivery delay.
  2. Salon day! Fresh hair and nails, hooray!
  3. Took the kids to the landscaping place to pick out the decorative rock we'll use in our flowerbeds. Progress! And we got out of the house for a bit.

  2. Another successful writing day.
  3. Happiness = the cat sleeping on your lap while you watch Legends of Tomorrow.
