Thursday, I had absolutely nothing on my agenda and planned to spend the day quilting. Instead I spent the day at DD’s. T#1 had saved up his money and bought himself a new game The Settlers of Catan … and needed someone to play with him. DD and I were his worthy opponents … but he still whipped our behinds! It was a game I’d never heard of, but it was fun.
We had dinner followed by a rousing game of kickball, where I went 0 for 3. It was boys vs girls, and while the boys thrashed us, we still had a great time. My legs were a little sore Friday morning, but that was a small price to pay for the fun we had.
After a lazy start to my Friday, I got a phone call from DD asking if I would like some “T-time” since we’ll be leaving soon. Obviously I said yes! I prepared a new recipe that evening … chicken florentine pasta … I found the recipe over at Mrs. 4444’s recipe blog after I linked up with Friday Fragments. It was yummy! Chicken, spinach, pasta, parmesan cheese … what’s not to love? I wrapped my Friday up watching the Cardinals defeat the Milwaukee Brewers.
Saturday was a quilting/sports/storm marathon. I had planned the quilting and sports portion of the marathon … the storm portion not so much. I spent the afternoon quilting in my chair in the living room, watching the Cardinals beat the Brewers again. After the game, I continued quilting … until we heard the storm sirens sound and headed down to the basement. We finished dinner just in time to sit down to watch the Blues take on the Kings in the conference semi-finals, when once again the storm sirens sounded … and once again we spent another half hour in the basement … when the storm passed and we were able to head back upstairs, the Blues had scored their only goal of their defeat by the Kings.
After church Sunday, I had lunch with DD and some mother-daughter bonding at Target (we picked up some cleaning supplies and paper products for a sweet woman at church who’s been given some discouraging news regarding her cancer). DH & I spent the afternoon getting the bulk of our packing done … we’ll finish up tomorrow. I finished up my Sunday with quilting.
