Whoa! It was another one of those weekends with nothing planned (other than T#1’s baseball game Saturday morning) that turned out to be a BUSY one! What a weekend!
Friday evening, I got a phone call from DD to come get T#4. Their whole family went to see Cars 2, and T#4 (who will sit and watch movies at home) wouldn’t sit still . It was nice to have some time with her, just the 3 of us. We’d all been so excited about their “movie night” since T#3 is a HUGE Cars fan. They’d been planning this outing for months, but DD reported that the movie (and as a result their evening) just didn’t live up to the hype … it was just a little too violent and too adult for their little ones … even T#2 who knows no fear was a little frightened by the violence.
Saturday morning, we had T#1’s baseball game. It was an 11:30 game which gave us several hours to just chill out … I like getting up earlier in the mornings, but it takes me 2-3 hours to get myself going and ease into the day … so the late morning game was ideal for what I thought was going to be a lazy day.
After lunch, I got out and mowed for DH … he’s taking an antibiotic for his sinus infection, and one of the warnings is to avoid sun exposure. I rather enjoy mowing … it’s something that can be done almost mindlessly … just me and my thoughts … and I have to confess that I enjoy the immediate gratification of a freshly mown lawn … not to mention that it gives me a bit of a workout.
Within minutes of finishing the mowing, DD called and suggested I come by to get any of the plants they were digging up from their back yard. Their new house is on a small lot and practically half of the back yard is a huge flower garden. It’s beautiful but not very practical for a family with 4 kids. I grabbed my shovel and head to collect a few plants. 3 hours later, I had my plants and some very sore muscles.
Today we went to church and after lunch, I got to work planting my new plants. I planted about half the Siberian irises. I’m still pondering where to plant the butterfly bush and the bearded irises. I’d hoped to do a little quilting this evening, but my hands are just too sore to do any quilting tonight. I think I’ll do a little reading instead.
Hope your weekend was a wonderful one.
