Quite honestly if I would be happy if we had weather like this year round! High temperatures around 70, low humidity and plenty of sunshine! It’s awesome! Well, I like highs in the 70’s except for on the weekends when I would like at least one day of 95 degrees so we can go to the beach. I miss the beach and I need a beach day! But the weather this weekend was beyond awesome. Absolutely fabulous! The kind of weather that just makes a person happy!
We had a pretty calm weekend and spent most of it hanging out at home. We have been running so much during the week that getting to have the luxury of a weekend where we could just do nothing is great. And we did a really excellent job of doing nothing.
Friday night a friend came down for dinner and drinks. Some dinner and plenty of drinks…….ugh. I don’t drink too much very often these days and I was sure feeling it on Saturday morning……and afternoon……and evening. Takes me a lot longer to recover than it used too. And apparently a lot less alcohol to get me to hangover status too. Assisting us in not getting anything much accomplished on Saturday were two good movies on tv. I did get to the grocery store for provisions and a couple of loads of laundry done but that was it.
Sunday morning I probably had two dozen text messages and a phone call back and forth with Amanda while they tried to figure out which pictures they wanted to buy from their photo session. I still haven’t decided which one (or ones I want to get for us) But in the end I think they decided to just buy the digital prints from the whole thing….then they can get prints made of as many as they want! I think these are someof my personal favorites.
Having a grandbaby so far away is going to be a bit of a challenge for us. I told Edward that we are going to have to make a real effort to send little gifts and books to stay in contact. And maybe we will be looking at a trip out East sometime soon. Thank goodness I get another weeks vacation this year! I ran across a sale on some adorable Navy themed items and ordered a couple of onsies and a minky blanket with an anchor on it.
Happy MLK day everyone! If you are off I hope you enjoy the day (and I might hate you a little bit). I’m off to the salt mines for another day in the trenches. Since the weekend was quiet……too quiet…..scary quiet…….I’m a little bit frightened of what today is going to bring. But I’m ready for it!
Have a great Monday!
