Week 26

Boy is it HOT!  We are in the middle of a heatwave here with no end in sight.  Thank goodness for air conditioning and pools.  Luckily tomorrow we are heading north to visit the in-laws in Oregon and should find some cooler weather there.  Of course last week another busy week--big surprise!  What was I thinking when I dreamed of the lazy days of summer?  July is looking just as crazy busy as June.  Maybe August will show me some love with a lighter load just before school starts again.  At any rate, happy July! 

Here is how we ended June:

Day 175- Monday, 6/24/13
John was lucky enough to have a work function at a local winery and even got to bring some bottles home.  We sampled this one tonight and it was nice.  Not bad for a work freebie!  I'm going to have to convince my boss to hold our next big meeting there ;0)

Day 176- Tuesday, 6/25/13
Brandon has been busy at camp making all kinds of fun things and brought a lot of them home this afternoon.  I'm not sure why he crossed out NASA on his rocket ship and put Lala instead.  Haha!  Crazy kid.  He says his mask is just a normal alien too.  As opposed to what? --not so normal??

Day 177- Wednesday, 6/26/13
There is nothing like sunflowers in June.  We are lucky enough to live in a place that has fields of them big and small.  They just scream summer--I love it.  Another thing the screams summer is 100 degree temps.  Here we go!  Looking ahead at the forecast makes me sick to my stomach.

Day 178- Thursday, 6/27/13
Today is my colleague's last day of work before she retires.  The two of us manage the lab together and are partners in crime so it will be sad to see her go.  To celebrate we took her out to high tea at Ciocolat in Davis.  It was so fun and yummy--a perfect way to end her last day.

Day 179- Friday, 6/28/133
Brandon has a hard time not treating the cat like a dog so Rusty usually avoids him, but today Brandon was ignoring the cat so Rusty thought it might be ok to sit next to him.  Brandon was silently very happy and wasn't about to let Rusty know for fear of making him flee.  It's a learning process.

Day 180- Saturday, 6/29/13
After a long, hot day Tyler and his friends are waiting for their relay race.  It's the last race of the meet and we are all eager to get home out of the sun.

Day 181- Sunday, 6/30/13
Justin keeps asking to be given odd jobs so he can earn money for a video game so today I took him up on his offer and had him help do some housework.  He dusted, he cleaned the bathroom, and he made lunches.  It was nice and I'll take what I can get!

That's it for this week and this month! See you next week hopefully in cooler times.



  1. Looks like a great busy week--and very hot! Hope you have a fun time in Oregon! I bet that swim relay team is fast! Fun stuff! Have a good week!

  2. Great pictures! I had to laugh at the cat photo. When I saw it in the little preview on The Mom Creative, I thought, "Whoa! That is one HUGE cat!" Then, I realized it was just the camera angle. Ha! :)
