My Long Weekend Wrap Up

We returned late Thursday from the Pacific Northwest … and for the first couple of days after we got back, it was as it we never left … well, except for the fact that there’s no fresh salmon or beaches here in Illlinois.  ha!  It had been rainy and chilly … but on Sunday, the warm hot, sunny weather returned.

Friday afternoon I got an offer from DD to watch the Ts while she ran errands/did some shopping.  Of course I said yes!  We stayed for dinner and took a walk around their new neighborhood.  It just does this mama’s heart good that they’ve got a home that fits their needs so well. 

Saturday I finally finished all the unpacking and resulting laundry.  I got quite a bit of work done on a new jigsaw puzzle … my mother’s day gift from DD.

Sunday morning we attended church … they were short-handed in the toddler Sunday School room, so I volunteered to help (and got to get a little time with T#3 and T#4; bless his heart, T#3 cannot quite grasp the concept that Nana is in there to work and play with ALL the kids, not just him Red heart).

We spent Sunday afternoon enjoying the beautiful weather … even though the thermometer read 90o, the humidity was low and there was a very nice breeze so it felt marvelous!  DH and I took a walk around the neighborhood, sat out on the deck, worked on the jigsaw puzzle and just had a nice, relaxing day.

Today, I finished up a sun dress that I started last summer for T#2 … I put it and the doll quilt into the box with the rest of her birthday gifts.  My dad came down this afternoon and, we all went to DD’s for T#2’s family birthday party/Memorial Day get-together.  We had a wonderful time … burgers, brats and hot dogs cooked on the grill, watching T#2 open her gifts, singing happy birthday to her, and watching the Ts ride bikes.  We also played some Just Dance for Kids on the Wii … you know you’re uncoordinated and out of shape when you consistently end up in 4th place.   

I did have to turn on the air conditioner this afternoon.  I hated to have to do it … after having the house all shut up all winter long, I would really much rather be able to open up the windows and let in the fresh air.  But it’s just too warm inside if I’m working up a sweat just standing at the counter, stemming strawberries.  It looks like summer’s here … did we even have a spring?


  1. sounds like a great weekend!! too cute about the little one thinking you were just in the nursery for him, he didn't want to share his Nana! That is warm already! you are right, it seems like it just went from winter to summer in the blink of an eye!!

    hope the week ahead is a good one!


  2. Good morning....sounds like you had a good week-end....the weather here has really been pretty weird for California in late May. We have had cloudy skys, and even some rain, cool temps. But the heat is coming I know, so I am enjoying this while I can. Have a good day!

  3. I love to have the windows open, especially at night. But, we've already broken 2 records in the past week, so I think I'll just leave my air on!
    Happy Birthday to T#2!

  4. You have been busy but it all sounds like fun times. The humidity can really get to you.
    The air conditioner is the best way to get it out. I take forever to unpack when I get home from a trip.


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
