We got this, right?
This was such a nice weekend... Mother Nature gave us a beautiful break & I got lots accomplished. I feel like I'm coming out of this weekend with a blue ribbon.
Friday started off my weekend living like a single lady!
Ricky had gone to Lexington with his coworker - its like an annual tradition for them - to see one of the first UK games. They leave right after work, so I'm on my own.
I was supposed to meet a friend for coffee & some God talk but she ended up getting held over in nursing school - so our plans had to be changed.
I had to take some running shoes back that hurt my feet & then with planned canceled, I ended up going to Hobby Lobby. It's a whole different experience when you know you dont have to be rushed & no one is expecting you home.
I ended up spending over an hour looking at their planners & planner accessories.
My work sister has me so interested in Happy Planners since you can make them exactly how you want, & I'm 1000% intrigued. Hence, the hour spent looking at planners & getting my wheels turning.
I didnt get a Happy Planner.... then.... but did come away with some more Planner stickers & 2 bullet journals.
I love my bullet journals to use as sort of a diary/journal. These are really nice too because they lay flat & have the dot grid papers in them. I really never knew that they had these before. With 40% off, I had to get two.
I ended up getting home around 8:30 & then was like, now what? ... I snuggled in bed & got caught up on some shows that were DVR'ed... & then just wanted to go to sleep with The Hubs not here.
Saturday, I woke up in time for another sunrise. I especially made sure to wake up early because The Hubs had to work & since I didnt get to see him all Friday, I wanted to see him Saturday morning. So we wished him a quick work day & me & the Aussies sat on the front porch. I brought my bible study out with me to read & the dogs were all intrigued about a deer they had seen run through our front yard to our neighbors yard.
It was a GLORIOUS sunrise....
It was just the perfect day. The temps were nice & the weather was crisp...
so I did a few errands around the house - did some laundry, cleaned the kitchen, & then took some time to Bible Journal....
I wasn't going to let this day pass by for me - or the horses - so I went over & let them out early & then I went to the local park to challenge myself. Got in a 5k. It was so slow... SOOOO SLOWWWWW.... but I did it. It's really crazy to think how runnings & getting miles in every weekend / every day - was a thing for me. & now, I'm struggling to get 3.1 miles. But it's a good wake up call for me. & I'm on a mission now & it started with this past week.

Skeletons & gravestones

I got home to finally have The Hubs home with me... & then I was back to work. I was on a mission. GET.THE.GARAGE.CLEAN!!!!!
Ever since I got my new car, I wanted to get it in where its nice & warm. I have had to scrap my windows twice this past week & I'm not down for that. Waiting to warm up & ice all over the car? Nope. Dont like that one bit. #spoiled
A bad storm is coming in today too so I was really on a mission because who wants their new car dinged up with storms? Not me.
I worked all afternoon to get my car loaded. We had visions of a yard sale this year. I had some good stuff out there. Shoes that were never wore - a brand new purse never used - Men's Levi jeans that Ricky barely wore - some kitchen appliances that were maybe used once, if at all... but who has time for a yard sale. I'd rather have the space & take a tax write off - so to the Goodwill it all went. Locals - go check it out because there's a LOT of brand new stuff we just took up there!
Ricky rode with me to take one of the loads up to drop off & then we went to grab some supper....
We hadn't had Penn Station in forever... their fries are the best. Between those & their lemonade, I'm a happy girl.
We stopped & did some shopping looking for a doggie bed for Bruno - a new fluffy one for his 19 year old bones....
|Found these dog toys too & wanted to get theme for our dogs from their daddy|
the #1 KISS fan
We got home & I just could not go to sleep. I ended up catching up on Grey's Anatomy & The Good Place & Single Parents. Needless to say, I was up till nearly 1am... which ironically, Ricky said he woke up at 1:30am. We had been like ships crossing in the night all weekend long apparently.
Sunday, I guess not falling asleep till so late, I missed my sunrise. I woke up with the sun peeking through my windows on my face. 8am. Havent done that in the longest!!!!
I had to hurry up & get ready for church & loaded up the 2nd batch of Goodwill stuff & then ran to let the horses out super early so they could enjoy the beautiful day too.
|Our daddy is saying hi to Baby here :)|
Off to church... we hadn't had HSM small group in 2 weeks for Fall break so it was great seeing all my girls again. It was like the first day of small group too because they were all gabby & chatty & giggly... it was super fun being with them.
It was really cool because our sound system was down at church (that part isn't cool) - but with no loud mics & no amps, we had to worship acoustic style - like REAL acoustic style. All you could really hear was just the sound of all the voices around.. it was just so special to me. I love in those moments to sit & listen for a little bit. It gave me all the campfire singing feels.
I headed out after to go do some more Planner shopping... hello Joann's & Michael's... & hello all the Happy Planner sales. I got some good stuff. I'll share in our next Planner post!!!
Dropped off the Goodwill load, got some lunch for The Hubs & I & then look what I was able to do....
ALL THE HAPPINESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Welcome home Dorothy to the warmth of the garage!!!
Me & mom went to the store & I had to put the horses up & then it was home to finally - FINALLLLLY - relax for a hot second... & gear up for the week ahead.
Lots happening this week too with Bible Study & Ernie's last agility class & library trips planned. That'll make the week zoom by - I'm sure!
How was your weekend?
Do you do yard sales or just donate things?
Have you ever used The Happy Planner?
