Get you pads and pens ready because it’s time for the Week In Review.
The Week In Review is a list, in its purest form, not of the things you still need to do, but of all the things you have done in the last seven days. It’s an achievement list, an ode to yourself, a celebration of sorts, and a virtual pat on the back or smack on the ass. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

♫ You can do it, put your list into it. ♫
Last week passed in a blur, and it turns out I took very few pictures. I know, I know, bad blogger, bad. Translation: today is going to be lots of words with only a handful of images thrown in for kicks and your attention span (mine too, if I’m honest).
Let’s get listing:
I mowed the lawn once and watered the veggie garden daily, despite our pesky neighborhood squirrels eating my cucumbers. In an attempt to thwart their next round of plundering, I made and sprayed a concoction involving cayenne pepper and vinegar. Take that you fluffy tailed rodents.
I finished Season 3 of Outlander and then cancelled my Starz subscription since the new episodes won’t air until November. Frugality at its finest.
I packaged up and returned the minuscule dessert bowls I ordered by mistake and then correctly purchased the extra deep soup/cereal bowls. What can I say? The pictures were misleading, and I like big bowls.
I hit up the grocery store twice.
I wrote and shared a Currently post.
I started and finished the book, Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. It was a quick entertaining read.
The Hubby and I took Ave to Memphis Kiddie Park, where our little cheeky monkey insisted on riding the roller coaster, despite our own misgivings. We caved because we’re a bunch of suckers, and of course Ave loved it, along with the simpler rides too.
We brought a picnic to the library’s summer porch concert and got to enjoy live music along with our tasty vittles. Ave snagged all the beans and peas from my bowl.
The bulk of my week though involved getting washed, packed and ready to head out to Canada today for our family vacation. I made lots of lists and checked them twice. Now bring on the beach (and maybe a beer too).
It’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What is something you accomplished in the last week? Big or small.
