I’ve always thought that the weekend starts with Friday, but I guess “officially” it starts on Saturday. Regardless of when we want to consider the weekend started, it’s here now!
We had T#4 all afternoon yesterday. I just love that little one … and she loves her Nana. Of course, the downside is when Daddy came to get her, she didn’t want to leave … seeing her crying and reaching for Nana broke my heart. On two levels … one, it broke my heart to see her cry, and it took every ounce of willpower I had not to snatch her out of DSIL’s arms to comfort her … and two, I’ve been in those shoes, seeing my child cry and reach out for someone else’s arms when it was time to come home. Even though I knew that at that age, they only know what’s fun right now and resist leaving the current fun, it’s still hard on a Mama’s heart to see her child resisting coming back home (even if temporarily).
After T#4 went home, we settled in for a nice quiet evening. We fixed ourselves some dinner and watched another movie … this time from our Blockbuster queue. We don’t watch many movies during the summer with baseball most every evening, so we’re a bit behind on our queue. And with no hockey this winter (at least not yet), we’ll have plenty of time to get caught up on our queue.
As of right now, we have nothing planned for today … it looks like we might actually be able to do DH’s birthday celebration meal today!! He is the “chief cook and bottle washer” for the men’s prayer breakfast at church and fixes a nice large breakfast, so I’m thinking that a late lunch/early dinner at his favorite restaurant is our plan. That way we can order off the lunch menu – saving a few dollars while still getting plenty to eat. I know what DH will order … he always orders to the chicken Spiedini Proscuitto. I’m leaning toward either the tutte mare or the seafood ravioli.
I’m hoping to get in some quilting before and after we have our meal out. And speaking of quilting, DD has put in a request for a quilt. I have another wall quilt (for our dining area) already started, but I was at a loss what to make after I finish the I-Spy quilt and the wall quilt. I was wanting to make something for DD … and now I have the design picked out for me. She’s asked for a two-color quilt … gray and creamy white … in a chevron or herringbone design. Here’s her inspiration:
Today I’m thankful for:
- The sun shining in as I’m sitting here with my laptop.
- Finally getting our meal out to celebrate DH’s birthday.
- Seeing new pictures of the Ts on Facebook … they had a photo-shoot last month, and the photographer posted a couple of teaser photos on Facebook … time for new wallpaper on my laptop and my iPhone!
- DH’s thoughtfulness … he was very quiet when he got up this morning, so I could sleep another hour (he was up by 5:00 in order to be at church starting breakfast)
