Week 2

Welcome back and happy Tuesday!  The staff in our department get a free breakfast this morning which is a great way to start the work day.  It's also a beautiful sunny and warm day which helps lift the spirits.  Too bad we need some serious rain and snow.  It's been such a dry winter, and we leave for a ski trip in a little over a week with no storm systems in sight.  Oh well, it will still be fun to go to the mountains and just get away with the family. I'm sure we'll find something to do even if it's not skiing.  Ice-skating and sledding sound fun!

Until then, take a look at last week's pictures:

Day 6- Monday, 1/6/14
I'm starting the year off right with more greens in my diet.  There have been a lot more salads lately which is a good thing. Tonight it was mixed greens and grilled chicken all topped with a yummy dressing we brought back from Hawaii.

Day 7- Tuesday, 1/7/14
This afternoon I pulled out the ski gear and had the boys try their stuff on.  Someone always needs a new pair of boots or gloves or a jacket or snow pants.  This year we got off easy with just having to replace a couple pair of gloves.  

Day 8- Wednesday, 1/8/14
Brandon's Kendama is getting some good use as you can see from all the scratches on the pretty blue color.  He's enjoyed taking it to school for recess and is learning a lot of new tricks.

Day 9- Thursday, 1/9/14
Time for a back-to-work selfie.  Since I was off for the holidays things have been pretty crazy trying to catch up.  Today was the first day back where I felt like I could actually take a breath and relax a bit.  Now it's time to sit at my desk and work on data entry and reporting results.

Day 10- Friday, 1/10/14
It's a beautiful, sunny, and warm day for some tennis.  These two are back in lessons after taking a break in December.  They also now have their own rackets in their favorite colors which of course makes it more fun.

Day 11- Saturday, 1/11/14
Yesterday was so nice and sunny, but today was dreary and cold just in time for Winter Polo!  At least we missed the morning rain and the water was warm.  These boys played 3 games lasting well into the evening hours.  They were glad to be back though and enjoyed competing again with a win for  every game so it was worth it.  I think the parents were actually colder than the players.  It wasn't the best day to be sitting poolside.

Day 12- Sunday, 1/12/14
Game day!  John's a happy boy watching his 49ers win another playoff game.  Hopefully next week will bring more of the same.  Go niners!

That sum's up another week in 2014.  We're plugging right along.  Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you next week.

  1. I can't believe your boys are playing tennis and doing water polo in January! What fun activities! Hope you skiing trip is a good one and there is some snow up there for you! Your salad looks yummy! Have a great week!

  2. Such a cute work selfie ... love it!
    That stinks that the first Winter Polo game was cold & dreary. :(
    Also, that salad looks really good ... guess I'd better go eat some lunch. :)
