So what has your week been like?

It has been another bad week for blogging, but a good week for life!! I am not sure where all the time went, but it seemed like I rarely had time to sit and write. I spent a lot of time preparing seminary lessons, (the story of my life!) attended the freshman football game, made dinner for a friend, got my hair cut and colored, have been walking in the morning with my friend Susan and then again later with the dog, cleaned my house, and spent 45 minutes sitting out in the sun with the dog, after I accidentally locked myself out of my house! Lucky for me, my husband was willing to be my knight in shining armor and hurry home on his white horse (or black car) and rescue a damsel in distress.

But our biggest news is that our temperatures have finally fallen under a hundred for the day and 70 at night!! It almost felt cold at 5:30 this morning!! We may even have gotten down to around 68. My daughter told me many of her friends wore long sleeves or sweaters and one friend stopped at the gas station on the way to school to buy hot chocolate. No matter that it still was around 95 later in the day!

Tomorrow night (Friday) we are hosting a birthday party for a friend. We are having a barbecue and our own version of "Battle of the Sexes." I have spent a lot of time working on that, and am excited for how it will turn out. Hopefully it will be a lot of fun. I plan on taking pictures so unless I am threatened not to, I will post those over the weekend.

In the meantime, I hope everyone has a great day, and a wonderful conference weekend!

Sounds fun! I understand the busy week. You'll need to send me the game - it sounds really fun!

Horray for fall! Bloggy friends are real friends. Thank you for being mine.

I can't wait to see your weekend photos.

ha! 95o here would be torturous in October...but having lived in Phx I know oh so well the relief and joy that I felt when the temps cooled down under 100o.
It felt like it was the end of an oppression. lol
on the other hand, our high today is supposed to get to 59o...low this morning was 30o. I love fall!

Any chance you'll post your version of battle of the sexes? I would love to try your version! Sounds like you had a great week! Glad to hear the temps are falling. They are doing that here too and it has finally started raining again.

How fun, I love a party! You will have to post HOW you played the game!!! And, yes, pictures too!

Life is good if it is busy, but I am still happy to see a post from you! Enjoy the great weather.

Sounds like that dog is coming in handy:) You gotta have someone to keep you company on those occasions when you're waiting for the "knight in shining armor"! What I wouldn't give for 68 degrees right now, nothing but rain and snow in the forecast! But we did have a wonderful conference weekend, Saturday we did BBQ and loved our outdoors time.
