BLINK... another weekend gone...
They go way too fast... but this was another good weekend...
But for the most part, I'll usually say a weekend is good.
So here's some of the highlights ....
... No traffic on the way home. It's a Friday miracle!
... Saw someone driving abut 5 below the speed limit on the way home on the expressway. I thought, ahh - it must be a young kid or an elderly person. Drove past & saw a normal looking middle age man. Then I immediately became suspicious of him & why he was going slow. Did he not want the police to pull him over for a reason? Is he a serial killer? I had a hundred different things in my mind that made that guy seem like he was just scary ... my mind obviously gets out of control at times.
... The drive through at Starbucks was wrapped around the building. Everyone must be celebrating Friday. But I thought I'm not going to wait in my car for that long so I parked & went inside.... & there was not one person in there. I had my drink & back in my car in less then 5 minutes. It pays to get out of your car sometimes.
... I made my first 'real' salad. & even more? I made my first salad dressing! I have to say, I was super impressed with myself over this. I feel like I can TAKE ON THE WORLD NOW! Who knew salads were so inspiring.
|The orange juice was used as an ingredient for the dressing|
... big time stuff for me....
... We got to spent our Friday over a friend's house having just a little hang out. I don't know the last time Ricky & I laughed that hard hearing some stories in people's lives.
... got home & was so sad to hear the news about Joey Feek. Bless her family. Her faith & her journey just reminded me so much of my friend Stephanie as she battled cancer. To hear the end of her fight here on this earth had happened, it broke my heart... but also left me so happy to know she was done with this struggle & hugging Jesus.
... Finished up my night watching Stephen Colbert.
... The goal of the day was to sleep. Except Bruno didn't get the memo & was waking me up at 6:30am with his paws hitting me wanting me to play with him. Oh mercy.
... Made a natural cleaner to use on my floor (equal parts vinegar & water) & got to cleaning my floor.
.... yeah.... only to have Harvey walk right in over it with muddy feet.... Good thing I made this new little spray to use on the floor because I think I wiped it up a few dozen times.
... Tried the Target brand Up & Up Swiffer wet mop covers. ummmm.... probably a thumbs down. First, I couldn't get it to stick to the velcro on my Swiffer mop & then, they just didn't really seem absorbent. Dang it. I go through so many of these with dogs dirty feet, I was hoping to save a buck.
... Bible journaling time. Wasn't my favorite page I've done, but I liked using new metallic pens & gold washi tape that I got for Christmas. Now it gives me more ideas to do other pages.
... Had to get in 7 miles for my run for the day. I had planned on doing it outside.... until it ended up being a yucky day. Cloudy. Drizzly. Gloomy. So when I looked at my weather app & it said it felt like 37 degrees outside, & I knew I had a long time to be outside? Nope. I headed down to the treadmill.
... Ended up having the best distraction while running watching Fuller House. I literally laughed out loud at some parts of it. Got through the first 4 episodes & loved every one of them. I had to make myself stop watching so I can have some to watch over the next few weeks. Who am I kidding? I'll probably have it all watched by next weekend.
.... that little boy that plays the middle son? OH MY GOODNESS - he is all sorts of ADORABLE!
... After that run, & the gloom? I ended up spending the rest of Saturday on my couch. Covered in my down comforter.
... Caught up on Downton Abby before the finale. #whymarywhy #pooredith #SadMrBarrow
... then got caught up on How to get away with Murder. I almost gave it up because I think its a little too much at times... but watched one episode, then another & then I was like GIVE ME MORE!!!! I am all caught up & now can't wait till Thursday!!
... church time. We went back to Southeast again & honestly, it really felt more like 'home' then ever after visiting other churches. I think it really helped because we saw so many familiar faces & had the chance to chat & talk afterwards. Fellowship with people in the church is huge to us.
... The whole time we were in church, Chasity was timing her contractions. Yep... girlfriend was worshiping while having contractions. Tell me she's not a rockstar!!! They even got to 3 minutes apart at one point... which Ricky couldn't focus on any part of the message at that point because he thought he was going to have to birth a baby any moment... & by 'birth a baby' that means, Ricky running up & down the aisles freaking out. All was good. Her contractions have still been inconsistent... but its going to be any day now!!!
|This totally COULD have been Ricky in church today|
... Chasity's momma had their daughter Emerson from a sleep over so we wanted to treat her & Ryan while they had a little down time - & to give them strength if that baby was going to come soon - so off to brunch we went....
|Probably the last pic I'll get of her with this bump before baby comes|
... Ricky & I stopped at a funeral home. One of our old GCC friends passed away on Friday. It's so amazing to me when we visit the funeral home for one of our old GCC church family, how many people we see from our old church ... even though everyone has gone in different ways. It just feels like we are so connected. It really is like a family. How I miss those days & the church we used to have. It's sad to me to know how messed up everything had gotten, but encourages me to see everyone still stay together in some sense.
... of course Ricky & I stopped at Starbucks on the way home. Someone else was excited to be at Starbucks :) He did indeed get his little puppuccino & totally knew to expect it too.
... its warming up, so we had to get in some Harvey Dent frisbee time.
... made out my bills - which makes me have a small panic attack every time.
... Ended up my weekend with some Walking Dead. I wanted so badly to watch the Downton Abby finale, but DVR'ed it. Those Walking Dead spoilers are everywhere so I went ahead & watched that. Didn't disappoint... but cant wait to find time to see how my dear Crawley family wraps up. Dont tell me!!!! ... but I'm just hoping poor Edith gets some sort of happy ending.
How was your weekend?
Is it warming up where you are at?
Did you watch The Walking Dead or the Downton Finale?
