Week One

The sky was so beautiful Thursday night, I took a picture from the grocery store parking lot.

I spent Labor Day at a beach club in Hampton with some friends, before starting school on Tuesday.



I finally started painting the bookcase I had planned to do all summer. I saw something similar on Pinterest and loved it, and so far, it's going well. I think I'm going to use it in one of my craft rooms, but I may change my mind and put it in the kitchen if it turns out well enough.


Gracie is doing her usual routine of sleeping and looking pretty.

Her eyes look beautiful in this photo.


My first week was awfully tough, unusually so, but the good news is that it will have to improve, right? Fingers crossed.


  1. Sorry about your tough first week Rose, I think the first week is always tough on teachers and students alike! Here is to a better week number 2!

    1. I think my expectations worked against me; I was hoping to lose myself in work but it didn't happen immediately so I'll keep working at it.

  2. My first week was tough, too! I agree, things can only get better. Although I think it's going to take some time before I feel comfortable with the demands of high school.
    I'm glad you had a nice getaway for Labor Day.

  3. Grey cats will always hold a Special Place in my heart. My Marlowe is a mainly grey tortie longhair, and she is a beauty with deep green eyes like Gracie's.

    Week 1 down already! Good for you.
