No fair. Not fair at all. I want a 3 day weekend! Color me jealous.
I will say I did cram a lot in the weekend & enjoyed every single minute of it.
Friday started off with temps inching on up to Spring like temps again. Perfect for taking my book outside & finishing it up. Reading outside is just my happy place in life.
& then my next happy place in life was when the sun goes down & I went & finished up some knitting.
This cowl sold as soon it was up on Instagram. I love when that happens.
That same person also bought my yellow cowl that was my favorite piece in the Etsy store. I like this lady... she has good taste ;)
Friday ended up with catching up on some TV... Jane the Virgin has me totally wrapped in right now... & The Vampire Diaries! I cant believe we're only 3 episodes away from the end. I'm going to be lost without the Salvator Brothers.
Saturday, I have to say, I wasn't too happy when the hubs forgot to turn his alarm clock & I was up a little after 5am.... sigh...
I was able to fall back asleep for a little bit but that just throws me off for the day.
Oh well... I wanted to get out & get in my run for the day before some expected rain settled in. I always love to get the miles done early too ... its just harder to do as the hours tick away in a day.
|6 miles in the books|
It was still feeling pretty nice out so I took to my porch again & read in another book some... with my other reading buddy. I think my dog's happy place is also when I read outside.
I then did some productive things like clean & some Bible Study stuff & work on another little project.
A friend of mine asked me if I knew how to make those little newborn tiara's... so I gave it a try. & was so pleasantly surprised at the outcome.
But now - I'm not sure if it actually fits a newborn. To me, I think it looks small... Ricky said he thinks it'll be too big. I'm not sure the size of a newborn head. I need a newborn near me STAT. If anyone has a newborn - like a 1 month old or under, LMK - I'll mail this tiara to them & they can try it out & let me know & keep it for the trouble. I need to get my sizes down ... I'd love to make these for all ages
... heck, I'm going to make me one soon too. Why not?
Perfect for the Beauty & the Beast movie viewing?... hmmm....
Sunday, we headed to church. I just loved our MSM message. We had the kiddos make up these 'bricks'... & they had to write on them the things that can build a wall to God.. the things that try & keep you from Him. The hard things in life that we feel like God doesnt see. The promises that God gives us. It was just such a powerful lesson. The kids loved making the bricks... & then writing down on them what their individual issues were... & then the wall was built to show what can happen if we let these things grow & grow.
|Those bricks all have things written on them... such a cool visual|
& of course, we saw that wall come tumbling down too.
I just love my church... it's just always delivering the best messages for these kiddos.
Ricky & I left church & headed to one of the few places that offers a veggie burger. Except when it was delivered, I said to Ricky, "This looks like the most real burger I've ever seen"... & then let Ricky take a bite to which he said, "DONT EAT IT - ITS MEAT"....
|Yuck... just YUCK!!|
You would have thought there was a snake on my plate or someone was trying to poison me. GASSSPPPPPPP!!!! I got the waiters attention & told him that he just sat a dead animal in front of me... (I didnt really put it like that)... & he looked at us like, "Sorry, but can you still eat it"... I had to tell him he couldnt pay me enough to make me eat this burger so we had to wait for another round of veggie burgers to be made. We really didnt mind & the guy kept apologizing to us & we said we were fine... this was the only day we really had no plans or time constraints so it was nice to just sit back & relax for a bit.
& in the end... 2 yummy veggie burgers were had.
|The VEGGIE BURGER... no animals were harmed in the making of this burger|
Though I felt even worse that that poor cow died for a burger that ended up getting tossed.
I always feel animal guilt. You should see me walking through a grocery story. I keep my head down & eyes averted in the meat department. #truestory
We had to pick up some things at Target... someone please tell me how I run into Target for a few things & come out spending $75.00... HOW?????....
& then settled in for a quick visit from our Nashville gang. They had to come up for a Memorial service for a family member this morning. Sad reason to see them, but always nice to see everyone even for a little bit.
& so, another weekend in the books. Enjoying all the spring like temps as long as I can because they're saying the rug is being pulled out from under us & the cold is coming back next weekend.... great... I'll be bundled up like an Eskimo for my next long run.
So how was your weekend?
You having spring temps?
Do you spend ridiculous amounts of money walking into Target?
