Weekending

It’s a cliche but wow, that weekend went by fast! Swoooooooosh.

Here are the highlights:

A photo shoot with an adorable one year old and his parents late Friday afternoon. Outside. Yes, there was snow and ice on the ground but the sun was shining and the temperatures were comfortable enough and it felt so good to be out in the fresh air.

A daffodil shoot coming up through the ice and snow in my yard. Hooray!

A relaxing Friday night at home with Dale. It was a night that included roasted tomatoes & goat cheese and bacon cheeseburgers and lots of Irish music.

A work meeting on Saturday morning. Yeah, definitely not the highlight of my weekend but it only happens a couple of times a year, thankfully.

A trip to Michael’s in the afternoon. I bought materials to make spring wreaths for the front door and kitchen door.

A wonderful dinner with our dear friend’s Don and Lois to celebrate Lois’ upcoming 70th birthday. I made my mother’s standby company’s coming for the main course (fish filets with spinach and homemade cheese sauce) and it was as delicious as it was 40 years ago when she first made it.

pi day for carole knits

A chocolate cream pie for dessert in honor of Pi Day, 3.14.15. And, because we are truly geeks, I served it at 9:26pm.

A truly relaxing Sunday that included nothing but reading all afternoon. My current book is Remember Me Like This and it’s very good.

A homemade pizza, eaten while watching snow falling from the sky. We broke the record for the snowiest winter in our area. Yep.

So much for those spring wreaths.

    Hooray for great weekends, but not for breaking snowiest winter records. Get those wreaths up; spring has to come sometime soon!

    I hope you’ll give us the details when you make the spring wreaths! I for one am curious about the materials/process.

    I knew you would be making pie on Saturday! We briefly had snow last night but the wind was more impressive than anything. Yay for the snowiest winter ever – NOT.

    I considered a chocolate cream pie after I’d seen that you were making one. 😉 Looking forward to seeing those wreaths!

    I hope that daffodil (and all his buddies waiting under the snow) didn’t get too discouraged by the snow. Y’all deserve a gorgeous spring and a (very) L-O-N-G summer. the only thing I saw missing from your fun-filled weekend was knitting? can’t wait to see what you thought about the book. (and I hope Monday treated you well!)
