A Good Season

by Courtney on August 24, 2012

Welp…it’s about time to hang up the softball jersey for the season.


Last night’s game didn’t go as well as we’d hoped, and we ended up losing in the semi-finals to end our season. As happy as I am to have some of my evenings back, I always get sort of sad when softball season ends.

Our team has such a great time every year, so it’s always a bummer to see that end. Plus, it means that summer is coming to a close which, despite the fact that I said I’m ready for fall weather, I’m still not quite ready for summer to end either.

Ahh well. It was still a good season!


This morning, I spent a little bit of time playing fetch with the Codester before making breakfast.


He started off strong, but then got way too distracted by noises that were coming from the window, so I lost him and his interest in fetch.


Fine by me…time to eat!

I poured myself a mug of hot coffee while I waited for my breakfast to cook.


Hey, did you guys know today is National Waffle Day? As soon as I found out, it made my breakfast decision a rather easy one. Winking smile


And I know I said no more waffle photos, but I snapped this one right before sitting down to my computer so it was all good. Things still stayed nice and warm for me today!

On another note, I still can’t believe it’s already Friday. This week absolutely flew by for me…anyone else? I’m trying to convince Jay that we need a little date night tonight, but he says he needs to mow the lawn.


Maybe I can get you guys to convince him for me…? Smile

Jay- if you take you’re wifey out tonight, chances are she will bake you cookies or cupcakes tomorrow….sounds like a good trade off to me! :-)

I did not know it was waffle day! I will not tell my husband or else I am sure that would be supper, waffles are his fav.
I am ready for fall too, but also not ready for summer to end!

Maybe you should mow the lawn for him this afternoon? He wouldn’t have anything else to do later. Then, you’d get your date night. Seriously…who mows their lawn on a Friday night?!? Isn’t that what most people do on the weekends?

Good luck getting your date night! Great job on a good softball season. I wish I could eat waffles today- I have a bunch in the freezer. Unfortunately, I got my wisdom teeth out on Monday and I’m not sure if I’m up to eating chewy foods yet. I’m still on the soft food regimen.

Did you say that you cat fetches?!

Ohhh yes! He sure does, haha…I actually took a video of him before doing it:


8 Alex @ Brain, Body, Because August 24, 2012 at 9:48 am

HA! Is he fetching a a little piece of plastic?

Neither my husband or I grew up with cats. When we started fostering for the animal shelter I asked my FB friends what kind of toys to buy for them. Everyone said to save my money and because they like boxes, bottle caps and crumpled sheets of paper ;)

If I pretend the bagel I’m eating right now is a waffle, can we say I celebrated?

Wasn’t that Jay’s excuse last time, that got you to mow the lawn for him? Hmmm… methinks he’s onto something! ;-)


14 Jennifer @Peanut Butters and Peppers August 24, 2012 at 11:11 am

I am not ready for the summer to end, but I am looking forward to cooking with fall produce!! Have a great weekend!

I’m the same way about summer/fall. I go back and forth on which one I like more and I’m aways depressed when summer is over but happy that it’s fall. It’s a struggle, I tell ya :)

Mowing the lawn only takes me 15 minutes, and if you have a big lawn it couldn’t take more than 25. I say mow the lawn first, then reward with date night! :)

Have a good one!

Kinda wish I found that out before I ate breakfast – my waffle maker has been entirely too unused lately. :-)

It was too late for me when I found out that it was waffle day. Oh well….I had a pb and egg white sandwhich, which was delicious. I’m all for the date night….much funner than mowing the lawn! Happy Friday!
