It sure feels like it’s been a while since we’ve done anything worth sharing on a weekend but the times they are a-changing!
On Saturday, Dale mowed the lawn for the first time since he was struck by a car last year. Today is actually the one year anniversary of that life altering day. To make it special, our Police Chief sent a Sergeant ’round to set up some cones to keep Dale safe. We all had a good laugh about it and it definitely helped lighten the mood. I really do love small town life and the support that comes with it.
Also on Saturday, I bought us a Solo Stove for the deck. It’s the perfect thing for when Dale and I want to have a fire as the big fire pit in the yard feels like too much effort when it’s just us. This lights up easily and the wood burns quickly and we enjoyed cocktail hour thanks to the warmth it radiated.
Sunday was Mother’s Day, not a favorite day of mine due to the complicated relationship I had with my own mom. But, you know, I think it’s time to let that go. She’s been gone for 23 years, after all, and I need to realize that Mother’s Day can absolutely be about me being a mom and the love my kids have for me. Hannah came over in the afternoon and set up a lovely charcuterie board and she also got me that awesome insulated Orca chasertini, which will be perfect for keeping my martinis icy cold all summer. Jess came by with Jackie and Eryk and we had a nice visit on the deck.
And that was my weekend. It’s almost time for the next one!
