It’s been a while since I did a weekending post, mostly because weekends have been spent quietly at home. This weekend wasn’t all that different, but it does illustrated a slice of our life right now.
Friday was an at-home day, with some strength training to start things off right and then plenty of time for reading and puttering, organizing a shelf in the kitchen and sorting out my coat rack . . . to prepare for having to actually wear a coat again soon. Friday Night Snacks have fallen a bit by the wayside the last few weeks, instead we got sushi for dinner and finished watching Nine Perfect Strangers on hulu.
On Saturday I took myself to Home Goods to shop for some fun fall things for the house. Dale teased me about not buying any pillows, a long standing joke around here, but I did still come home with one. And a fall wreath for over our bed. I also went to both Michaels and Target, neither of which I have been too since January 2020 . . . and I left without buying anything. I guess the pandemic has changed my shopping habits and not in a bad way. We had a wonderful dinner at Sean’s that night, it was fun to relax and eat delicious food, and catch up.
On Sunday we went to a local nursery and got mums and kale and pumpkins for my window boxes and a new hydrangea for the front bed. Dale moved the struggling Annabelle into a shadier spot and planted the new Limelight that we bought and he helped with weeding and the window boxes, too. There was some football and some meal prep and planning for the week ahead. We got caught up on Impeachment and that was about it.
It was a typical early fall weekend and I enjoyed it all.
How was your weekend?
