8/20:  My sister and her husband flew back home to Atlanta.  My hubby flew to Atlanta for work.  I did next to nothing that night after work.


Have you seen the rain evaporate before it lands? It’s called Virga. A common site here in Colorado. See pic above.

8/21: After work, I watered my neighbor’s plants while they are on vacation. Did some laundry, cleaning up around the house and cleaned the oven…I know you are jealous right now.  🙂

8/22:  I mowed the back yard after work and then played at least 20 games on the Sudoko app.  Never say I’m not exciting! 😉


8/23:  Met Laura from Modern Sage Designs at the Erie Farmer’s Market and then we enjoyed a drink while we caught up with each other.  She’s the best!


Smoke from California fires cleared a little tonight.

8/24:  After work Dray and I went to see the movie, Beautifully Broken.  Our friend Caitlyn was starring in the movie.

So many hot air balloons!

8/25:  took the above picture on the way to body pump class. Laura, of Modern Sage Designs, attended body pump with me!  Dray and I had a sprinkler repair guy come to fix a few sprinkler heads and a leak.  Dray and I went to see the movie, Crazy Rich Asians.  It was entertaining and fun!


8/26:  Dray and I didn’t amount to much all day.  We hung out on the back deck and laid in the hammocks for the better part of the day.   Picture below taken from our even stroll.


And yes…we saw a snake on the trail.  I just about jumped into Dray’s arms!


8/27:  I worked from home as our hot tub was delivered.  Dray left for a business trip to Mexico.


8/28:   After work, me and Cathy, the only “Housewives of Vista Ridge” left in our group since two ladies have moved away,  went to see Crazy Rich Asians.  My second time.  Such a cute movie!


8/29:  I met a new cousin for lunch.  She’s a new cousin because we didn’t know her mom was my mom’s sister due to adoption.  We just found out through DNA.

Hubby got home from a business trip. yay!  I met my neighbor’s 8 week old Labradoodle.

8/30:  After work hubby and I fed the horses nearby some apples.  Then we had the best sunset ever! See below pic.  I made lasagna and spaghetti sauce for Friday night dinner.



8/31:  Our friend, Sara, came over for dinner.  We had a fun time talking and listening to music!

  1. Wow! So much time spent with family. I love reading re-caps like this. Sounds like you had a nice relaxing time in New York too. I’ve never been to Long Island even though I have lived in New England my whole life but it sure looks pretty.


  2. Always enjoy your gorgeous scenery! Look at you with the new hot tub with a view. Hope it will bring you many hours of relaxation. Looks like August was a big month of hostessing company. Glad you and Dray slipped away for a little alone time in NY.
