Checking in

Hello, everyone! After a busy summer with very few posts (and lots of traveling), I'm checking back in. I can't believe how quickly the summer flew by! Labor Day weekend already?!?!? It's crazy.

But, as I said, we've been busy, and that always makes time pass a little more quickly. For ten weekends during the summer, we were out of town for five of them (along with a full week in there, too). We actually had a pretty good routine going, as every other weekend involved a trip somewhere, either to go to a wedding, visit with family, or hang out with friends. The weekends at home were busy, too, as we caught up on whatever we'd missed out on the previous weekend.

So, it was busy all around. We enjoyed our travels and seeing people we don't get to see regularly, and it's always fun to enjoy a trip and, at the end, start looking forward to the next one.

It's nice to have some time at home, too. We've gotten a lot done around the house, including installing a new kitchen faucet, printing and framing some wedding pictures, making plans for a kitchen update, cleaning out the garage, painting the master bathroom, repainting an office chair, putting in a new doorbell, and much more. We've also helped David's sister do some work around her house. Oh, and of course we've found time for a few trips to the pool.

This morning, we had an unexpected situation when our new faucet fell apart. I was washing some dishes in the sink, and suddenly the water stopped coming out of the faucet. I turned it off, then turned it on and off again a couple more times.... nothing. I looked under the cabinet and realized two parts that were supposed to be attached had come apart, and the water was spraying under the sink rather than through the faucet. I cleaned out everything under the cabinet, mopped up the water, and found the assembly instructions for the faucet. David got under the sink and reattached the pieces. Fortunately, it has worked fine since, so we're hoping that maybe we just didn't attach everything tightly enough the first time we installed the faucet.

Other than that, however, our projects have gone well, and we've had a great (and really hot) summer. And now, we're looking forward to the fall--cooler weather, football games, and one more wedding weekend.

Did you have a busy summer? Are you looking forward to fall? What's your favorite fall activity?
