Five For Friday!

I love summer vacation!  We've been swimming a few times, and I've taken my son to the park every day this week! I've been able to sleep late, work-out and read!  This is the life!  I'm still working on the bookroom at school...I go back next Tuesday.  Hopefully, I'm close to being done.  I like everything to be just so :) I saw this quote on Pinterest, and I loved it!  It is a great reminder to me that sometimes I have to take risks and step outside my comfort zone.

Monday was a little stressful.  We've been in a drought for about a year, and as my son says, "I think our drought has ended!"  It rained like crazy for 3 hours, and our sump pump broke.  Thankfully, our basement didn't flood, but my dad came over and had to manually drain it, while my husband and I were taking buckets of water away from the house!  We had neighbors whose basements flooded, so thankfully, we were home, and no damage!  This was water in a small creek by our house.

Last night's sunset :) 

I read The Litigator this week.  It was a quick read, and I really, really liked the main character.  It reminded me of The Firm, which I also enjoyed (about 18 years ago)!  

I picked up Ripped in 30 Days by Jillian Michaels from the Bookmobile. I love it!  I normally run and I do a little bit of strength training, but I thought I could do this on my non-run days.  My husband saw the box and said, "Why did you get this?"  I love that man!!!!  I had to remind him that I'm not exactly "ripped"  :)


  1. So funny that you mentioned Jillian! I did too on my post today. :) Hoping you will post pictures of your bookroom. We have one called our literacy library. Is this where you store all your book sets?

    1. We store all of our trade books, National Geographic and Mondo books. We also have a teacher's library of professional books. I'm hoping it doesn't take too long to get it picture worthy!!!!

  2. Good luck with your new video. :) Glad everything is okay with all your rain.

  3. I may have to check out Jillian's book. I'm also a runner, but would love to get more core even more toned. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Some beautiful pics! The quote is perfect! I must check out Grisham's novel, too. Just found your blog through the Five for Friday and so glad I did. I am a new follower!

    Enjoy your summer!
