Whoa … where did the weekend go? I can’t believe it’s Monday already!
Here at Chez Nana, the weekends start on Friday … and what better way to start the weekend than with picking up my new glasses. I was afraid that with a stronger close prescription, I’d have a more difficult time when looking away after looking close … but my eyes have adjusted well. I did give my glasses a try-out by spending a little bit of time with needle and thread.
Saturday was a busy day … we worked out in the yard that morning. Our afternoon and evening were spent at DD’s, celebrating Father’s Day. We had a wonderful meal (fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, baked beans and strawberry shortcake), a great visit with the in-laws, played games … a wonderful time, even if we had to spend the last couple of hours in the basement (the storms sirens sounded … thankfully the storms went to the north of us).
Sunday was a lazy day … I took advantage of that and spent a good chunk of the day quilting, while watching a couple of movies, including To Kill a Mockingbird. I read that book back in high school but had never seen the movie. I’d forgotten most of the story line, so it had me spellbound.
Today we’ve got a contractor coming over to give us a bid on replacing our deck. The drought and heat last summer took a toll on our deck … several boards need to be replaced, and the entire deck needs to be re-stained. We think it would make more sense to put the money toward replacing the deck using low/no maintenance materials. I’d like to make it a little larger, and DH would like to add a roof.
Tonight T#1, T#2 and T#3 will be working at a pizza joint in the small town where their swim team meets … a fundraising effort for their swim team. Their shift is 8-9PM, and Nana and Papa want to support their efforts. Thankfully this pizza place sells prepared pizzas to be baked at home, so that’s probably what we’ll buy … I don’t think we want to wait until 8PM to eat nor do we want a second meal.
Between now and then I hope to get caught up on my mini pineapple blocks … hopefully I’ll have some more blocks to share.
