Right now, I'm loving a weekend that saw...
...a flurry of cleaning, a few errands, and sunsets fire-pit-side with a cold one.
...a visit from an old friend, the making of a new one, and one of the best cheesecakes I've made to date.
...another successful gymnastics class for big sister (she's really getting the hang of that forward roll, and the trampoline... don't get me started!).
...more nights waking up to a screaming little brother, for no reason (let me think... first it was a hole in his blanket, then his bellybutton hurt, and then he wanted to know if we were asleep...).
...a morning waking up to cows peeking in our dining room windows, and the following afternoon helping neighbors corral them back into their own yard.
...warm sunshine, light jackets, and lots of play outside in sand, leaves, driveway, and woods.
...gnome homes with Mimmy, some fixin' with Pappy, and real good guacamole.
...a dear friend's wedding, way too much laughing, and lots and lots of bubbles.
We had a full weekend, but full in such a good way. It was a nice break from the house projects, though I'm sure we'll be right back at it next weekend (here we come new fireplace surrounds, TV cabinet, unorganized garage and- dare I say it?- garden!).
Until then, we have a lot of chores to do, and I better get to 'em! Happy Monday!
