A Summer Siesta

posted by Andrea | 07/7/2014

family nap

Over the past few summers, I’ve taken some sort of blogging break to rest, relax, and to take full advantage of Dave’s glorious summer break. Last year, my break was for an entire month, the year before, it was for 2 weeks.

This summer, it works best for our schedule to go with a 2-week break, starting right… NOW!

We have several house and yard projects to wrap up, plus a few more projects to start. We’ll also be taking a little family vacation (more on that when we return).

My current plan is to be back to blogging on July 21 or 22, so hopefully you can wait until then because I already have a bunch of posts I want to share with you. I’m also hoping I’ll be able to share our finished mudroom, our finished deck, and… my finished out-house garden shed :)

There should be a decent number of cute Nora and Simon pictures on Facebook if you have withdrawal, but in the mean time, feel free to comb through my entire blog archive or peruse the many different categories I’ve written on over the years.

Thanks in advance for sticking around during my break. Have a great 2 weeks!

Oh, and if there are any specific topics you’d like me to write about when I get back, feel free to leave them in the comments below.

    Have a wonderful time. You will be missed. Hope all is well in your part of western Michigan. The news here in southeastern Michigan is there were terrible winds, and rain last night and some folks are without power. Be safe.

    I’d love to have “a day in the life post.” I can’t remember if you’ve done one in the past. It’s where you put a time line of what you did for a full day. Example: 7:00am got up, 7:30 baths & breakfast, 9am watched dora while I loaded the dishwasher. I think it’s a fun topic just to see other peoples days!

    I have done that post before (here’s the link) however it would look much different now :)

    I’ll need to wait a bit before writing another one though because Simon really doesn’t have a schedule yet and our summer schedule is WAY WAY different that our school year schedule!

    I wish for you a great vacation with time to savor each hug, snuggle and kiss from your sweet family. I know it will be great for you to be able to cross some of these projects off your list, and I am looking forward to seeing the pictures. When you get back, I would love to get more information on using slipcovers, specifically off-the-shelf slipcovers on non-Ikea furniture. I read your “Let’s Talk Slipcovers” post and have been thinking that slipcovers would be a good idea. However, I’m not quite ready to have custom slipcovers made. Your insight would be great, I know. But in the meanwhile, have a great siesta! :)

    I am looking forward the posts you listed above. I’ve been waiting to hear any updates on making part of your basement into a family room. I hope you are enjoying your time off.

    Thanks Jane,
    So far, I am definitely enjoying my time away from the blog! Oh, and just an FYI, the basement project is probably years down the road — so you might need to wait a while for that post :)
