Weekend reading 7/24/22 | Centsational style

Greetings for the weekend! We had such a big storm last night because the rainy season starts here. The weather is so different than what I’m used to in California. It rains here almost every day but only for an hour or two and it’s a warm tropical rain then we get a beautiful sunset. In California, most summer nights are the same, so I love the variety!

I’m escaping the wet month of August as I head back to California to help my daughter prepare for her move to the East Coast for college. We have a list of favorite things to do together and I’m looking forward to spending some time with her before she flies out of the nest! I just finished the hall bathroom makeover and family room remodel. Woah, these rooms look a lot different than they did six weeks ago. I will take pictures of them before I leave and will share them very soon!
