Can someone slow summer down for me? It’s flying by way too fast. It seems like I just got home from Saugatuck and here it is, Friday already! And you know what that means – it’s time for Friday Finds.
The above photo is my son Cory watching the sunset over Lake Michigan during our recent trip to Saugatuck, MI. He and his wife Amy are expecting their first child in October. It’s a girl and they plan to name her Charlotte. I can’t wait to meet her! And my middle child Bridget is expecting her third child in November – a boy that they’re naming Cove. It’s gonna be a full house this Christmas!
Before we left on vacation I was tested for the virus. Not because I have any symptoms or was exposed to anyone known to have the virus, but I took the test as a precaution since we had two expecting mamas on the trip.
I was supposed to get results within a week, but when I hadn’t heard anything after two weeks I called the health department. They had no record that I was ever tested! It made me think of people who need test results before going back to work. How frustrating that must be.
Enough of virus talk; here’s a few interesting finds from the week:
My daughter – the one who’s expecting a boy – wants to paint the outside of her house and is leaning toward dark colors. I happened to stumble upon this post that shows dark exterior house colors.
If you’re in need of a fast and tasty lunch or dinner, check out one of my favorite recipes – Shrimp with Creamy Couscous. Mmmm, so good!
I just ran across an article about cooling weighted blankets on Apartment Therapy and am considering getting one. Weighted blankets are expensive, but they’re worth every penny! I already have one but it’s not a cooling blanket. It definitely helps me sleep better.
Finally, here’s an enchanting Swedish home makeover. You don’t want to miss it!
Here’s hoping you have a safe and enjoyable weekend!!
