Sunday salon - Monsoon Madness style

Living in the desert like I do brings a real appreciation for the wet stuff - RAIN.
We love it.
Today is a juicy, humid, rainy, monsoon filled day!
We love it.
It has rained off and on all day, including thunder/lightning and flash floods.
We love it.
Okay, we love it when we are protected and safe and have working A/C.

As it is Sunday I thought I should update my week....

I read here this week. 
I read about Albert Einstein, Jane Goodall, science experiments, The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews for some light mindless reading, and started Matched by Ally Condie.
I love this corner of my library.

J and I took this from the yard and made this...

and hung it in the library!

Love my rocks and sea glass too.
Creative juices were flowing.
Just in time to use them to get ready for a new school year to start!
(sorry about the photo quality...night shots and I don't always get along:(..)

My little corner of the room is coming along.

We're eating quite well here....
(Heavenly Raspberry cupcakes I made for a friend's wedding... okay we I licked the beater a lot...)

And we are staying hydrated with Eegee's~~ L.O.V.E. it!!
Watermelon makes life worthwhile.

I loved having a helper in household chores this week.
She helps with dishes, laundry and she motivates me to keep the floors clean.
It doesn't matter how many times I sweep and mop...her little knees always get dirty!

The favorite sounds of the week were...
rain dripping on the roof
baby belly-laughs.

We bought a printer. 
We finished a puzzle.
 (My First! I know that's hard to believe but it's true! I had a lot of help!!!)

We finished the week.
It's been a great one!

Happy Sunday!

I LOVE monsoon season! Rain and thunder and lightning are such a nice change from constant sun, sun, sun.

You probably aren't, but I'm counting down the days until school starts!
