Trying to get back into a regular blogging schedule, so I’m going to start by trying to do a weekend summary post each week.
Despite being fairly grumpy on Saturday, I had a pretty darn good weekend.
Saturday morning was fairly lazy, but in the afternoon I went to a baby shower for a longtime family friend, who happens to have been one of Laura’s first babysitters, 15 years ago. In knitting news, I made this Leaf Blanket, which turned out so freakin’ adorable. I have pictures, but they’re on the real camera. I will post them soon. It was a quick project, and I would definitely make it again.
Saturday night we drove out to Brazos Bend State Park for some moon-gazing with our friends, Cathy and David. We sat in the parking lot watching the moon while playing Botticelli (a game similar to 20 questions, but more convoluted). It was a very pleasant evening, except for the mosquitoes. Poor Laura’s feet are absolutely covered in mosquito bites.
Yesterday was one of the more productive days I’ve had in a while. After lunch at Chuy’s (YUM!), we came home and I steam cleaned our guest room carpet, which desperately needed it after being used as a giant litter box by our kitty. 😦 While I did that, the kids sorted Mount Laundry – actually, I think it was more the Laundry RANGE of mountains. Groceries, a run, a home-cooked meal, and putting away a good portion of the laundry followed.
Maybe not the most exciting of weekends, but it was nice to spend it with the people I love most!
