I was excited about the new season of Victoria on PBS. It's one of my favorite shows; I think they do a great job with it (one questionable storyline from the past notwithstanding).
John about to take his turn at his ninja warrior competition.
Sam likes this spot on the couch.
Boo Boo likes this spot on the stairs. He can see what's going on outside pretty well from here.
We thought this was so funny. Violet was napping right under the hippo's butt. 😂
The light fixture that's over the dining room table is pretty.
And so is the tray ceiling above it.
Rub a dub dub, Sammy's in the tub. My jacuzzi tub, to be exact.

This was written in Sam's school planner: "Dear Day tomorrow. Snuggle up with a book."
Dear = Drop Everything And Read, a.k.a. my favorite thing to do. I keep this picture in my phone for inspiration and a reminder of what I really want to do with my life. 😄📚

Here's another pic of those pretty white roses I wrote about last week.
A couple of things from catalogs that I liked:
