Once again another weekend has come and gone. How time flies when we’re having fun, right?
Friday I spent a good chunk of my day at DD’s. Mama took the 3 biggest Ts on a homeschooling field trip, where they checked out insects, including Lucy the Hissing Cockroach, who had to make her way through a maze made by the Ts.All I can say is I’m glad I was home with T#4.
Speaking of, we were playing with a toddler “computer” that “spoke”. Some of the questions were “who do you like to play with” and “where do you like to go visit”. My heart was full when I heard her respond with “Nana” and “to Nana’s house”.
I also got my iPad all set up, with all my apps installed. I wonder how long some of the app providers are going to take to tweak their apps to be iPad-friendly? Yes, Words with Friends, I’m talking about you!
Saturday was a quilting day. I had planned to get out and trim back my rose bushes and my butterfly bush, but it rained all morning. Of course, it did clear off by mid afternoon … I could have gone out and gotten a good bit of trimming done, but by then I was comfortably ensconced in my recliner, stitching on my quilt. And of course, I couldn’t miss the 3:00 Blues game either.
We set all our clocks ahead an hour and heard on the news all about all the downsides to changing our clocks. I, for one, am glad to go on Daylight Savings Time. Of course I know that we’re not saving any daylight … no one seriously thinks that’s the case, do they? That’s definitely a misnomer … as there are only a given number of daylight hours in any day, regardless of whether they begin at 7:17 AM or 6:17 AM. <sigh> But I do enjoy having daylight an hour longer in the evening, especially when the weather gets warm enough to get outside and take advantage of those later sunsets. You know, I’ll bet all those who insist that it takes them weeks to adjust to the time change would have no problems adjusting if they were on vacation and traveled to a time zone one hour ahead.
Sunday was a busier day. After church, we went to the Y … I hadn’t been since last Wednesday and was definitely overdue. I took my iPad and read (using my Kindle app) while walking on the treadmill … that 50 minutes went by so quickly! I’ll definitely be taking it with me from now on! It was another rainy day, so I had a good
excuse reason to spend the rest of the day indoors, quilting. And of course, there was that hockey game at 7:00.
