It is definitely the season for beach days… morning walks, evening rolls… afternoon swims and plenty of castling…

Our 52 Week Challenge

  1. Walk of the Week: Our intended hike, to the top of the mountain behind our house, had to be canceled because of a raging fire – there is no chance that I am going to take our kids hiking on a mountain that could still flair up at anytime. We replaced it with a wander through the wetlands… no-one counted this as a hike at all and we will have to raise our game a little this week!!!

  3. Game of the Week: Spot it… a game the entire family can play at once and not in a quiet way!!!

  5. My Just Because Book: I love this book, but I have never taken the time to actually read it through. I stopped and lingered a lot longer… my kind of inspiration. A book filled with masses of do-able projects from things that are lying around – while I love the projects it is the artwork that really inspired me… it is really a notebook filled with doodles and ideas… gotta say our kids loved having this book lying on my desk and a lot of them stopped by to dig deeper and explore this one. I have a feeling our recycling bin is going to be working over time!!!
  6. Letter of the Week: I hope a postcard counts as a letter, this one is long overdue.

  8. Organizing Project of the Week: I hope getting the garden under control is an organising project, it was a fairly huge undertaking. We have planted our salad and we are waiting eagerly for results!!!

  10. Recipe of the Week: We finally have a recipe in our recipe book. The first recipe is in our family recipe book, and it is of course our fave: Chocolate Brownies.

  12. Our View from the Deck: We’ve made it day by day… I have an impending fear that I may just forget to continue with it!!!

  14. Our Challenge of the Week: Deserves it’s own post, and it follows this one… It’s a bookish challenge and I am looking forward to posting this one!!!

    Do you know? Your challenges seem MUCH bigger than they seemed when you first told us about them.

    All the best with that…

    I look positively slothful next to you 🙂
    Marcia (123 blog)´s last blog post ..I need your help please

    Marcia if there is one word that I would never ever use to describe you… well slothful would be that word. Otherwise – just writing one recipe, one letter and so on turned out to be a fair amount of work and throw in the garden and it is totally unsustainable!!! I will have to figure out a way to either schedule it better or ease up on myself – both of these solutions require much more effort than my usual casual approach!!! Thinking about it!!! Hope you have a great week… praying for your little ones and their first big day… lots of love!!!
