It was another busy weekend (including the couple of days leading up to the weekend).
Thursday morning, I was almost done getting ready for work when I got a text from DD asking if I could call off work to watch the Ts … she was feeling absolutely awful and was running a 104.6 fever. She was able to get in to see the doctor … the diagnosis was a highly contagious virus … with orders to rest for the next 4 days. Thankfully I was off Friday, so I watched T#2 and T#4 while DSIL’s mom watched T#1 and T#3. It was a wonderful day with the two girlies … and T#2 asked if I would show her how to sew. While T#4 napped, I cut some strips from fabric and showed her how to pin together the strips and sew them on the machine. I started the first seam, but I had her sew the second seam all on her own. I’m hoping that one day before too long, she and I can go to the fabric store, pick out a few fabrics, and work together on her first quilt. DD was feeling better by the time we took the Ts back home.
As soon as we left DD’s Friday evening, we headed out to my dad’s. My sister and her S.O. came down to watch the 7th game of the World Series with my dad … and we went out to join in the fun. And fun it was because our Cardinals won their 11th World Series. We went back out Saturday morning for more time together … my sister lives almost 4 hours away, so we don’t see each other too often.
Sunday was a quieter day. Once again, I served in the toddler nursery at church because they were short-handed again. I didn’t mind since that meant I got a little T-time with T#4. After church we had to say goodbye to some old friends who were moving away to be near their aging parents. We spent the afternoon at DD’s … they invited us over for lunch. We finished the weekend with a fairly quiet evening, watching the Cardinals’ celebration parade and the first couple of periods of the Blues hockey game.
I’m off tomorrow, and other than making a meal for a young family who just had a baby, I don’t have anything on my agenda … which is a good thing because this coming week is going to be another busy one.
