Project 365 - Week 22

Week 22.

This has been a bit of a stressful week for us.  Last week of school for Jared, finals all week.  Looking for an apartment for Alyssa.....not finding anything we both are ok with.  Car issues.  My father-in-law was hospitalized and we are not sure what is causing his problems...and we are 7 hours away.  A mess in our pool....pictures to follow.

So, I have to tell you that a 3 day weekend with NOTHING on the calendar was VERY welcome!  I am usually one that likes to have a big BBQ on Memorial day or be going somewhere, but this weekend, I am content to stay at home with my family and relax.

Hope you are having a safe and fun memorial weekend!

Here's my week:

Sunday

Steve's throne chair broke.
It will no longer recline....he is making due till we get it fixed!
Monday

 My first calla lily of the season!!!
I think these are the most beautiful and classy looking flowers!

Tuesday

 These beauties are called Hot Lips!!!
Love them.

This is one of my Magnolia blooms.
Oh my word, these smell SO GOOD!!!
Wednesday

This is the hail that came down at my house this afternoon!
There were many bigger than this, but see the pointy edges on those?
Ya, I didn't want to run out there and grab any more....those would hurt!!!
Thursday
No picture today.
And to be honest, I am not sure why?
The good news though is that we found an apartment for Alyssa!!!  One that is convenient for her and SAFE for me!!!
Friday 
 This 1st day of summer started out perfect.....Alyssa made breakfast for everyone!!!
Jared has to play in the band for graduation...I love that he didn't even ask me to iron his clothes!!!


Saturday
Wanna come swimming at my house?!!

With all the storms, we have not been able to open our pool.  However, with the warm temps the algae has overtaken!!!  It's going to take a while to get this mess cleaned up....ugh.



Link up!!!  We'd love to see what your week was like!!

Hey- nice week. Again love your flowers in bloom.
Good Luck with the pool.
Blessings to you this next week.

Kim said...

Such gorgeous flowers. I love the smell of magnolias too.
We had hail one day, but nothing near as big as yours!
I hate ironing -- would rather clean the toilet than iron :)
Hopefully the storms will end soon and your pool can get back to normal -- although that is a pretty green color :)

Have a great weekend

I love the flowers this week they are gorgeous. I would love to have a pool...but would not love the upkeep. Glad you found an apartment for Alyssa that met both of your criteria's.

RaD said...

Great pictures of your blooms. Congrats on finding a new apartment for Alyssa. Hope you figure out how to get your pool cleaned out quickly. Do you have frogs and tadpoles living in there too? :)

Lee and LeAnne said...

Love the flowers, Sara! The hail - not so much!

I too have had a veryful quite restful peaceful weekend. Today, will be spent in the house of the LORD rejoicing with my brothers and sisters in Christ. Happy Memorial Weekend ... hate that the "fav throne " is broken....wink wink ...

I bet you are glad that summer vaca is finally here! And yay for finding an apartment you both like! bummer about your pool though...NOT fun for sure (one thing about our move is I miss our pool). Our chair is broken too, so sad, and we are waiting for ours to be fixed as well. And have never seen Hot Lips but am loving them!! Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend..you deserve it!

Rebecca Jo said...

That pool looks like a science experiment!

I love calla lillies- they were my wedding flowers :)

Man - those storms were CRAZZZZYYYYY ... glad you are safe.

momma frans said...

oh my goodness, your pool!!!
I love magnolias, too, and the picture is beautiful.

The Bug said...

I had callas in my wedding bouquet too - I think Rebecca Jo & I are secret sisters :)

I'm glad you found a good apartment for Alyssa - but too bad she won't be living with you to do breakfast every day :)

StephieAnne said...

That hail, omigosh...nothing even close to that size here in Oregon.

I think I'll pass on the swim in the pool...with all the storms you've had, I bet you're glad you didn't clean it out earlier.

So happy to see your kids in the house with you!

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

I for one will be glad to see all this volatile weather get behind us....

Love all the flowers this week!

OH my at the pool, looks like some serious work in your future, or at least who ever takes care of the pool...


Blessings

Oh my! That is a stressful week! I too would have to just stay home and relax.
We had a tornado this week, but no hail. odd.

LOVE your flowers! SO wish I could smell those magnolias. Beautiful!

Looks like a wonderful start to your summer, aside from the pool. ugh

saying prayers for your FIL.

Rachel said...

Yay for the apartment and a 3-day weekend to relax! Hoping for good news for your Father-In-Law.

And that hail is insane!!

Mimi said...

The flowers are lovely & great news on finding the right apartment. I hope your FIL improves.

Hugs & love,

I love calla lilies as well. They are so elegant.

I'm so glad ya'll found an apartment. It can be difficult to find somewhere that makes both Mom and daughter happy!

Lori: Teacher Turned Mommy said...

rita said...

I trust you are relaxing, enjoying the holiday, glad that Alyssa's search is over, and loving the blooms and fragrances, along with family and friends.
Blessings!

Ladynred said...

Love all the flower blooms. Praying that no more storms!

Tori said...

You always have gorgeous flowers!!
So glad you found a good apartment for Alyssa.
How can Steve function without his chair?!
Your poor, poor pool!!

Have a great week!

Penny said...

Love your flower pics!!!

And, ahem, to answer your questions, I rode in the front (though I did ask if I needed to ride in the back, LOL!) and my knee was perfectly fine by that evening. My ankle weirdly still kind of hurts when I run, but it's very minimal, more of a "Hm, that's there" than anything else.

Dixiemom7 said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I absolutely love the name of yours & the header is so inspiring. Your 365 project, along with a friend's, got me excited about starting my own! I'll look forward to linking up with yours this week! :)

Toyin O. said...

I wish I had a pool like that, love the flowers and it sounds like you had a great memorial day weekend:)

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

OH MY SARA! That pool is funky! Hope it clears up FAST!

Your flowers are AMAZING!

Karin said...

So sorry about the pool. :( How many shocks will it take? ugh.

Such beautiful flowers!! I need to live in the South. :) Glad you found an apartment for Alyssa and that Jared knows how to iron. :)

He & Me + 3 said...

Yikes on the pool. Wow that hail was huge! Sorry about the recliner...a man has to have his chair. BTW...your sushi party looked like a success. Love calla lilies to. Beautiful.
