It was a busy weekend … but as always, it was a good one, even though it flew by in a flash.
Friday was a rainy, cold, dreary day … not a very good day for running errands, but I was able to get a lot accomplished in just a couple of hours. My first stop was at our cell phone provider … where I upgraded my cell phone to an iPhone!I’d been wanting to upgrade to an iPhone for the longest time but was having some trouble justifying the cost … but it turns out that since they have released the iPhone 5, the 4S wasn’t any more expensive than just about your average cell phone. I think having a smart phone will be helpful when we’re traveling (finding hotels, gas stations with diesel fuel, Chick-Fil-A for lunch ). And when we’re not traveling, I can just use our Wi-Fi and save my data usage for when we’re on the road.
I got all my errands done in time to spend a couple of hours quilting before we watched the Cardinals beat the Braves to advance to the NLDS.
The rain had moved out of our area by Saturday morning, but it was a cold, dreary day. We had T#4 here … T#1 and T#2 had their first swim meet. There’s no way that we could have kept her entertained for hours at the YMCA, so she spent the day here with Nana and Papa. We took her along with to the neighborhood block party, where she was a hit. We got a good report from the swim meet - T#1 did very well, finishing first in his IM (individual medley) heat … and T#2 did well, too.
After church Sunday, we stopped by DD’s to pick up our grandpuppy Holly. She’ll be spending the week here as DD and the Ts went to Ohio with DSIL who’ll be there for training.
We got explicit instructions from T#2 (I don't know why that's got a black border on the left side ... I can't figure out how to get rid of it).
I wrapped up the weekend spending another couple of hours with my needle and thread after we watched the Cardinals lose Game 1 of the NLDS. I’m working on the borders … it’s going a little more slowly than I thought, but I am doing a little more stitching than I originally thought I might … and I’m enjoying the process so it’s all good.
I’ve got a fairly busy couple of days ahead … today is the first retiree flu shot clinic at the University (where I can get my flu shot for free), and I would like to go and get that over with. We have tickets to tonight’s Cardinals game … I’ll be wearing
