Project 365: Day 201 to Day 207 {Weekly Recap}

July 30, 2015

The past two weeks have gone by in a blur and I have yet to post my new weekly Project 365 update, as I had promised in my last post. This summer is kicking my butt in more ways than one. I’m drained. Tired, sick and drained and thoughts of sleeping for a week straight seem heavenly. I remember, at the end of the school year, thinking that I couldn’t wait for summer and relaxation and wondering now, where that is. It’s just been so unbearably hot and we haven’t had nearly enough rain… So each day, I come home more tired and this week, to add insult to injury, I’m also a bit under the weather. I have a bit of a cough/cold. And today, my voice was coming and going. Not so good when trying to make a bunch of kids pay attention to you.

Anyways, here is last week’s round up of #project365 posts as seen on Instagram (You can find me here —> @bocafrau) and my Facebook page.

Monday, Day 201:

This view is so relaxing and I often sit or stand and relax for a few minutes to enjoy it, while out for my evening walk with our pooch Gracie. Most nights, we go right around 7 pm but when we go a little later, the sky usually looks much more brilliant.

Tuesday, Day 202:

We visited the zoo with camp and these two made quite the ruckus. But I forgave them since they posed so nicely for me. 🙂

Wednesday, Day 203:

The more clouds, the better the picture, usually. This one was no exception… I could have sworn it would start pouring but we did not get so lucky.

Thursday, Day 204:

Thursday night, means jam night now. Hubby and his friend got a gig at a local bar on Thursday nights. Love it when he goes off to work with his guitar slung over his shoulder.

Friday, Day 205:

The girls and I went on a road trip to my mom’s house on the west coast. She’s had a lot more rain then we have and it pretty much rained and drizzled all weekend. But each evening, the sky turned pink and then to flame. Simply breath-taking!

Saturday, Day 206:

Middle was at it again with another make-over. This time with a pop-art inspired look.

Sunday, Day 207:

The girls and I made it back in plenty of time for a nice walk and I couldn’t resist taking a snap of the sun flare peeking out from in-between the big tree I always walk to.

So there you have it. Last week. I’ll try to post this week on Sunday… which reminds me of when I used to do my Snapshot Sunday posts, kinda like this Project 365 weekly recap. Ah, life, always going around and ’round in circles.

After tomorrow, I have one more week of camp left, then a week “off” before heading back to school on August 18, while the kids get to relax until the 24th. Summer, always so precious, yet so short. Of course, these days, I look forward to Christmas break, since I’ll actually have 2 weeks off…

I have a few post ideas and really, really, really hope to get to work on them the week after next and then schedule them to roll out one by one. Fingers crossed I won’t be too tired or busy to get to it.

Hope everyone is well. Miss you guys, so much…

xoxo, Susi

    it feels like we have had nothing but rain up here. although it has also been hot too. we are heading out for a week of camping tomorrow; and surprise! rain and thundershowers predicted pretty much the entire week. As long as we can get everything set up — we know how to stay dry after that. but this isn’t funny any more – every darn year our holiday is rained out and I really needed one sunny vacation right now.

    It’s been so stormy every night, we don’t even get amazing sunsets 🙁
    Thankfully you are capturing a lot for me! ha.
    love the pop art look!

      I remember your past two years of camping and the rain stories you tell after. Hope you stay as dry as you can! Enjoy and have fun!!! xoxo

    I really love your weekly recap in pictures. Sorry to hear that you are so tired and missing out on rain. I hope you’ll be able to catch up on both.
    We are actually having the most gorgeous summer weather. I love it. Then again, I’ve heard others already complaining about ‘the heat’, ‘the humidity’ – I am tempted to post one of my icicle pictures and remind them what it’s going to be like in just a few months…
    Have a great weekend, Susi!

      I do love the heat and living here but when you are outside most of the day, ferrying kids back and forth it does get tiring… I am looking forward to a bit cooler weather come October. But I’d still rather deal with this then a hurricane!!! One more week of camp and then I get to relax a bit. 🙂
