Mishmash Monday

Did y'all have a good weekend?!?!
Yeah, we did, too!
But....I'm pooped....which is why today, you're gonna get.....
"Mishmash Monday".....
1. We finished up the other blind on our "back porch"....actually our "sun room".  Oh, did I not tell y'all about that.  Well...we have those roll up "match stick" shades (purchased at the thrift store many years ago for a little bit of nothing)!! 
But....too much heat came in....or is lost, depending on the season....on the 2 large windows on the end....so....we spent the last 2 Saturday's lining them with heavy-duty drop cloths.  I don't have any before pics....but here's an idea of how they look now.  
I do believe I can already tell a difference in the amount of heat that comes in, since that's the end of the house that gets the hot afternoon/evening sun!!!
It was actually light outside when I took the pic, even though it looks dark outside the window!!! 
2.  Update on my weight loss journey.
 I've eaten more in the last 3 days than I probably have in the last 3 weeks put together.....not really, but it sure feels like it.  Don't be surprised if you don't get a September update....I might just hold off until October!!!  Not sure what's up with such an increase in appetite....other than....I've been a bit stressed....plus my foot still hurts....and the doc put me on some anti-inflammatory meds!!
Maybe I'm eating to make my foot feel better....yeah....that sounds like a good excuse, huh?!?!?  
(let's not even mention the apple cake I made and ate about half of....or, the monkey bread I fixed "for the boys" (yeah, right...ha! ha!)
;o)
3.  Yesterday, we were invited to attend a tour of where our son-in-law works.  It was so very interesting....and we had such a good time spending the day with family!! 
Here's a pic I took of Jess and The Dad and our GRAND-sons!!!
(The Dad had to work and didn't get to take the tour with us....but he did meet up with us for just a bit!!)
 4.  Only a couple more weeks until we're on vacation.  Of course, as usual, it's gonna be a "stay-cation"....or a "working vacation", since we have a couple of projects we want to get done!!!  
We're hoping to take an actual vacation next April....for our 34th anniversary!!!
5.  And.....last but certainly not least.....I'll leave y'all with a pic that Jess took of our precious boys....

Oh, how I love those little fellows!!!

Hope y'all have a Monday full of blessings!!!
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
