How fast they come.
Friday started off with some grocery shopping & picking up some mexican bowls from their new deli.... which were DELICIOUS!!!!!!! Glad to find another quick go-to for a fast dinner when we need one now.
I got home though & was on a mission - to organize a corner shelf in our kitchen.
I treated myself to this organizer at Hobby Lobby earlier that day that I had had my eye on forthe longest time & was anxious to put it to use.
The main thing to note... I own WAYYYY too many pens & pencils. This isnt even all of them.
I take my writing utensils seriously.
It ended up taking me a few hours to get this whole shelf organized... but loved walking away from it & having at least one place organized in my house.
I then spent the rest of my Friday starting on a new knitting project... always entertaining to me.
& catching up on some So You Think You Can Dance.
Exciting stuff! I know how to party on a Friday night.
Saturday, after doing a few wake up calls with Bruno, it felt wonderful getting a day off to sleep in. It was cool & I had the windows open & I just could have laid there all morning long.
But the cool air made me get up & make some coffee & do my other favorite thing... get my Kindle & go out on the porch with the fresh crisp air. It was wonderful.
I then got my Bible study stuff together & sat out there until the sun drifted across the table to reach me.
I wanted to try out my new watch GPS feature so headed down to the local park to get in some miles.
I hadnt laced up running shoes in awile... &felt it. UGH.
But the watch was awesome... my body felt so NOT awesome... but glad to get some miles under my feet.
On the way home, I stopped by my parents house ...
& then got a call from Ricky he wanted to go out & get some dinner.
I'm all about food - especially after doing a 5k.
We ran into Q'doba since we are now on a Mexican bowl kick... & it didnt disappoint.
& of course, you cant go out anywhere without a quick trip into Target. #saturdayvibes
We got home & ended up watching Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (I am so in love with Baby Groot) & we laughed that we felt like 'young kids" because we were up past 11:30. Wow... that's just sad.
Sunday, I ended up sleeping in late again... #sorrynotsorry
So ended up missing church, & wasnt sure how it was going to go to get to MSM.
First, I lost my keys, which made me late getting out.... & then on the way to MSM, I got a nose bleed. GEEZ. & it wasnt bad enough I had a nose bleed, I had on WHITE PANTS with a nose bleed. GASP. I was grabbing everything I could to cover my pants. I did end up dripping blood all over my red, white & blue plaid shirt... & of course, every drip went into the white parts. UGHHHH....
I finally got to church & forgot my glasses in my car, went back only to find I had left the TRUNK OF MY CAR UP when I was looking for a garbage bag to put all my bloody tissues. With some of my photo equipment right there to snag .... WOW... just wow....
I was glad to get in church so I could get some Jesus all up in my day....
We had a great group this Sunday....
|There's my white pants... nose blood free
& then it was time to waste some hours.
It's just a weird time when I get out of church at 12:30 & bible study isn't till 3:30 ... sometimes I have some things or Ricky will meet me for lunch or the time just goes fast.... & then there's Sundays like this one where I didnt have anything to do....
I ran over to TJ Maxx & then headed to a coffee shop nearby & had a new Handlettering book I had been sent & got a drink & spent some time practicing .... it was really nice actually to have some slow time & an amazing drink.
Then it was time for our JOY group... we finished up our latest study. WHOOO HOOOO...
& we had a new baby in our mix.
This is our group's 6th new baby since we joined together. Isn't that CRAZY?!?!? All the babies!! & we still have 2 more in the oven cooking.
But we love our babies....
|Those 2 big girls were our first babies in the group.
I got to spend some time talking with my friend after bible study & then stopped to pick up some dinner for Ricky & I ...
& didnt get home until 8:00... wow... that was a long Sunday.
Glad to be home....
& not glad to be setting the alarm clock for another week.
I just really need the weekends & weekdays to change places Wouldnt that be amazing?
At least we have a long weekend ahead on the next one.
Let the countdown begin for that!!!
& Side Note.... been watching all weekend of the horrible Hurricane Harvey. Which every time they say the name on TV, our Harvey stops & looks like, "Did someone say my name?".... but praying for everyone there. My Son in Law has family down in the Houston area & just glad for social media to see updates that everyone is OK. Scary stuff. Praying for everyone in that area....
