Right now, I'm loving a weekend that saw..
-an early, chilly co-op pickup that included 10 pounds of strawberries and 4 pounds of rhubarb.
-a morning, that turned in to a day, that evolved into the whole weekend spent making jams and preserves from said strawberries and rhubarb.
-a Big Girl who woke up two mornings in a row with dry pjs.
-two new trees planted at the front of the house, and the giant mutant butterfly bush vanquished to the brush pile (and a sweet little garden snake friend found in the process).
-kids playing together so incredibly sweetly, and grownup hearts melted.
-visits from all of the grandparents except poor Mimmy, who stayed at home with a head cold (and who was terribly missed by all of us).
-a puppy dog who was fluffy for the last time until the fall... shaving appointment scheduled for this afternoon!
Our weekend saw a lot of time outside in the sunshine and wind, a few good naps, some most excellent grub (if I do say so myself), some quality time with the kids and fam, some quality time with the hubs, a few decent temper tantrums, a busted lip (unrelated to the tantrums), tons of spontaneous hugs from little arms, and some incredible sunsets. In short, our weekend saw a good time had by all.
Wishing everyone else the same. Happy Monday.
