It was a very . . . normal . . . weekend around here. No trips out of town, no big plans with friends, no car purchases or any of the other things that our weekends have been taken up with lately.
In other words, it was just what the doctor ordered.
We had our usual Friday Night Snacks with napkins chosen specifically because it was International Women’s Day.
We got to spend some time with Jackie on Saturday while his mama went to an appointment. The little bugger took a long nap, meaning he pretty much slept the whole time he was here, but when he got up we went outside to enjoy the sunshine and mild temps.
In the evening we went to a local fundraiser. Last year we went with a big group of friends but this year it was just Dale and I and that was pretty nice, too. Plus we won a gift card to a local restaurant and a big gift card for a local company that rents tents and moonwalks and stuff. We’ll get a nice discount next time we throw a big bash!
We spent Sunday sorting and clearing out our bureau drawers since our bedroom furniture is being taken away this week to be painted. It’s the start of our bedroom redo and, while it’s simple stuff like removing wallpaper and painting, I’m still pretty excited about it. I’ll share before and after photos as we go along. We also spent some time going through things that have accumulated in the attic, including identifying stuff that our children have left behind even though they don’t live here anymore. Time for that stuff to go, too!
We ended the weekend much the way we began, with cheese and crackers and a cocktail. And perfect napkins for Daylight Savings Time.
And that’s about it. Nothing very significant but perfect nevertheless.
