The Weekend Wrap-Up
It was a long but busy weekend. And while it was a good one, I’m also glad to be back to my normal routine.
My sister, her S.O., her grandson, her ex-husband and her youngest son came for the weekend. My sister, her S.O. and her grandson came in from northern Illinois … they got in mid Friday morning, so we all met up for a visit at my Dad’s. By mid-afternoon it was time to head to my house to get ready to go to the baseball game that evening. My sister’s ex and her son arrived here a few minutes after we got in. We got to the ballpark plenty early … we like watching batting practice and soaking in the whole experience. And since this game could determine if our Cardinals were going to clinch the division title (and have home field advantage in the post season), there was a lot of excitement in the air. Playing against our traditional rivals, the Chicago Cubs, didn’t hurt either.
Our Cardinals didn’t disappoint … they clinched the title in an exciting game. There was a lot of celebrating going on, but my iPhone camera just couldn’t zoom in adequately to get a nice photo … so I’ve borrowed my ex-BIL’s photo that he posted on Facebook.
Saturday morning we all met up with DD, DSIL and the Ts at the St. Louis Zoo. I had my iPhone with me, but I didn’t even think to try to get any photos.
We spent the rest of Saturday here, watching the game, grilling brats and burgers, and relaxing. Sunday morning we headed back to my Dad’s before everyone headed back home … including us.
It was nice to get back to our normal routine, even if the rest of our Sunday was spent tidying up and doing laundry. It also included watching Sunday’s game … and of course, getting in a little quilting! It feels like it’s been months since I was able to spend any time with my storm at sea, what with our trip and then the busy week/weekend.
It’s hard to believe that today is the last day of September – where in the world has this month gone? Although I do love the month of October … cooler temperatures, lovely fall foliage … what’s not to love? And I’m certainly hoping to be able to get more quilting done in October than I did in September.
Hope you all have a marvelous Monday!
