The Weekend Wrap-up
Another weekend has come and gone. Why is it that the weekends go by in a blur but any two week days go by sooo slowly? ;-)
This weekend was a nice, quiet one … the lull before the storm. ;-)
Friday I worked and spent the evening watching the Ts. Mama and Daddy had a date night, and I got the opportunity to watch the Ts. We made homemade pizza for dinner and watched Cars (T#3’s FAVORITE movie!). I was pretty tired all day at work (we had a late night Thursday night with the hockey game) … I was afraid that I wouldn’t be up to watching the Ts, but God was gracious and gave me an extra measure of energy when I got off work at 4:30. What a wonderful start to my weekend!
Saturday was movie and quilting day. I watched the second half of Gone With the Wind (started it the weekend before), To Have and Have Not, and Casablanca while getting a good bit of quilting done. Yes, my favorite movies are all the old ones … Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis are my two favorite actors. ;-)
Sunday was another quiet day. After church in the morning, I got some more quilting done while watching another couple of movies … Terms of Endearment (I’ve seen that movie several times, and I still cry Every.Single.Time) and Now Voyager. I also bought my ticket to fly down to visit my dad (in January) while he winters on the Gulf Coast of Alabama. Yes, I hate, hate, hate flying, but given the fact that it’ll be a short trip and that I’ll be going by myself (my dad is renting a smaller condo this winter, and my sister will also be flying in), I decided to bite the bullet and fly down.
This week is going to be a crazy busy one (the storm that the weekend lull preceded). I work today, watch the Ts tomorrow and Wednesday, as well as do as much prep work for Thanksgiving as I can with DD Wednesday evening. Somewhere in there I need to do some more shopping for Thanksgiving (DD and I will work together to prepare a meal for a gal from church who’s undergoing chemo treatments and isn’t able to make her own Thanksgiving meal … I can't take credit for that - it was DD’s idea, but I’m blessed enough to get to help), and I’ll need to get the house tidied up and bed linens changed in anticipation of my sister’s stay (right now I don’t know for sure when she’ll be arriving, so I’m going to need to get to work on tidying up sooner rather than later). And of course there’s Thanksgiving (side rant: am I the only one who’s “bugged” by the use of the term Turkey Day when referring to Thanksgiving?).
