Mid-Week Check In ~ The Heat!!!

It has been so hot here in TX. In fact yesterday (Wednesday) we had to leave the house from 12:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M

We went to lunch at Chick-fil-A. To save money we usually get water instead of a soda (better for us too), only get a sandwich, and a large waffle fry. It came to about $20 for four of us. It was only Annette, Brent, Lance, and myself.

The temperature was just perfect. Not too hot or cold. It was just right. This mama bear was HAPPY!

Lance ordered extra pickles. When his sandwich arrived it was picture perfect! Look at that yummy-ness!!!! I had five waffle fries and the Original Chicken Sandwich but only at one slice of bread.

After Chick-fil-a, we headed to the mall. Might as well get some exercise. At the mall there is a Books A Million (BAM) and I found some books for super low prices!!!

Child of the River
The Wizard of Once
These Shallow Graves
The Book Speculation

All but the Child of the River were hardbacks for $25.86. Score!

I also stopped at the CorningWare store to get some lids. I bought one of each size for a total of $20.00ish. Eeeks, things sure add up!

Around 5:00 P.M. we went to Costco for dinner. Cheap, cheap, I say. I ordered a Ceaser Salad.

In California, my two boys Caleb and Ethan went to Magic Mountains with their cousin Aaron.

I miss my boys. Look at those smiles. While we are melting in the TX triple-digit heat, they were enjoying the beautiful Southern California weather. I'm glad they are not here for the hottest month of the year.

#owlcrate #happymail

Earlier this week I got some happy mail. This OwlCrate box was one of my favorites!!! I just had so much fun opening it. You can see my unboxing. It's actually two unboxings because Beacon Book Box had the same exact book!!!!

Having two of the same book actually worked out because Annette wants to read it too, so my sister MaryEllen, Annette, and I are going to do a buddy read.


This week I also received an Atlas Coffee map! How fun is that?!?! Now I can track my coffee.

With this heat, my Happy Mail has been a fun distraction.

What have you been up to this week?

  1. Yes, the heat is very draining! We don't have air conditioning and struggle to keep things cool with evaporative cooling. Some days are just hard. Yay, for the season of autumn looming around the corner :)

    ...and would you believe that I still have never been to a Chick-fil-a. I think I need to make that part of our goals.
