Project Life 2017 | Week 25


You might have noticed that I have skipped slash missed a week here and there. Weeks' 17, 18, & 24 (two weeks ago). I have even completed several one-page weeks when I've had fewer photos. All this said, I have no worries about missing the weeks, and guilt-free about completing one versus two-page spreads.

We are still adjusting to Jeff's out of town work, me more so than Jeff, I think. Planning a weekend to join him instead of him coming home for a change of pace, plus I can visit his jobsite.

I had fun putting these pages together with a mini-eventful week. From Jarrod alphabetizing our over a thousand DVDs of movies and television shows, taking them out of their individual cases, and then inserting them into three single cases that hold over 500 each. This bit of organization sends me to a happy place.


I have also been 'practicing' Whole 30 off and on, trying out meals that are Whole 30 compliant to prepare me for my Whole 30 start date which begins July 10th. I'll be sharing here and on a Facebook Whole 30 local group about my progress. The meal above of chicken and vegetables will definitely go on my Whole 30 dinner rotations during those 30 days of eating whole and clean.

After work one afternoon, I went to the movies! By myself! I watched Wonder Woman which was fantastic! The theatre I went to and that Wonder Woman was showing in at 2:10 in the afternoon had recliner seats with tray tables and big aisles. It was wonderful watching a movie in the theatre, relaxing, with my feet propped up.

I have read some great books lately, but, one of my favorites thus far this year is definitely The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Such rich history written entirely through letters. A delightful story line. This book is vying for the top spot of favorite book read in 2017.


While Jeff was home we watched Lone Survivor, in memorial of those who lost their lives on June 28, 2005, many who were in Jeff's former military unit. We bawled our eyes out.

We made some delightful additions to our front porch: a few pillows, an outdoor rug, and two umbrellas. We've already enjoyed some wonderful, relaxing conversation - and time away from distractions - on our porch.
