I'm not going to complain. We had a weekend that the sun was shining & the rain waters started to go down all around the area & while it was cooler than I liked, it wasn't freezing & there was no snow or frost - so I'm glad for the weekend in that & so many ways.
Friday, I started off the weekend by getting some coffee & taking some time to read this great book....
|I've got a new habit of drawing on my Starbucks cups :)
& then I ended up catching up on my Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on my DVR. I ended up staying up to nearly midnight. Yikes.
Saturday, I woke up to sunshine & a puppy Aussie jumping on my head - Saturday traditions....
& after cleaning the house a bit, I got to head down to meet a sweet friend. We used to go to church together & I had her son in my youth class yearssss ago (I'm old) .... it was so great seeing her & catching up & just hearing the story she shared of her precious momma with me.
It's just great that you meet people in stages of your life & then when you tend to go separate ways from the places that you always saw one another, there's just some friendships that you keep hold of. I am blessed that I had time to sit down & just talk with this dear friend of mine. & looking forward to doing it again soon!
The time went by entirely too fast... I could have honestly talked to her another few hours - she's one of those people you can just chat the day away with .... & I could have kept eating the amazing food.
|Egg sandwich with spinach, & caramelized onions. mmmmmmm
& then I did the wrong thing. I parked right by the yarn store, sort of forcing myself (not really, but yeah) to stop in. There were 2 ladies in there knitting & I got to talking to them & seeing what they were making & looking up patterns with them... & then I got sucked into the vortex of yarn. Yep.. walked out with a bag of yarn I didn't REALLLLY need (but kind did? Right?).... Oh well. & I found out they have a knit night where people come & knit together every Thursday. OH MAN. I am thinking of going down one Thursday just to meet some new knitting friends.
I ended up stopping at Starbucks & was so happy to run into another friend there & then headed home...
... more reading, more knitting, more DVR catching up.
& with all the coffee, I was up till nearly 1 am. Note to self - dont drink coffee after 4pm unless I want to stay up really late.
I have to say though real quick, I was sad to hear Sunday morning that the guy that voiced Cogsworth (as well as the character from Pochantas) passed away.. Lumiere & Cogsworth are now gone. Someone go protect Angela Lansbury quick!
I stopped to pick up some dog food & ran into Target & got another Starbucks - because it was before 4pm.... & got some lunch & then headed home.
& then I got to see all the hard work Ricky had done all day. He & our neighbor have cleared even more of an area out & the plans Ricky has for the space? I hope it all pans out - it's going to be our little get-away while home if it works out.
Harvey loves running in the back with us... Ernie? Not even chancing it!
& then it was time to make out my bills - cue the sad adult music... BOO!!!!
& then before you know it, its time to get ready for the week. It's going to be a busy one....
Get that Starbucks after 4pm ready all week long!
How was your weekend?
Did you get a good weather break?
