Slow Finish to a Busy Weekend
I had plans of a slow start to the weekend, but as is often the case, my plans failed to materialize. I got a call, early Friday morning, from DD asking if I could give her a bit of a break with the Ts … she wasn’t feeling too good and thought a day of peace and quiet (and a nap) might do the trick. Of course, she didn’t have to twist my arm to get me to say “yes”. Our first stop was the library in the adjoining town … a toy shop was hosting a homeschool event, bringing in toys for the kids to sample. T#1 really was dreading the outing, but as is often the case, he was the one who enjoyed it the most. Bonus: I got a couple of gift ideas for his upcoming birthday.
Afterwards we stopped at DQ for lunch – and ice cream – before heading to Nana’s house. We had a couple of hours to kill before it was time to get ready for swim practice. It was a long, but good day … but then any day spent with my Ts is a good day in my book!
They swam in another meet yesterday. Unlike most meets that start at 8:00 (with warmups starting at 6:30), this meet began at 1:00. That gave DH and me time to drop off my sewing machine for an annual tune-up and have a quick lunch before heading to the pool. It was a small meet … 3 smaller teams, so it went fairly quickly … we were done by 5:30. The Ts did well … all 3 finished 1st or 2nd in all their events (other than a DQ on T#3’s 50 free). We all stopped for our usual post-meet meal at our usual post-meet establishment Five Guys.
At least today is going to be a slower, more uneventful day. There is, I hear tell, a big deal going on this afternoon.
I’m not a football fan, nor am I fan of all the hype surrounding the Super Bowl, but our neighbors are hosting a Super Bowl party … and since we enjoy time spent with them, we’ll go. And I’ll enjoy seeing the commercials.
In the meantime, I plan to spend a few hours with my needle and thread … I didn’t get any quilting time Friday or Saturday and I’m anxious to get in a few stitches. Besides, if I have to sit through a football game, I deserve a couple of hours quilting, don’t you think? ha!
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
