And a lovely weekend...

was had by all! Unlike how the forecast was supposed to go, the weekend turned out to be beautiful. It is now rather warm and muggy but the weekend was great! I love it when the forecasters are wrong.

We didn't do anything terribly exciting. Friday we took the boys (Owen and Ludwig!) for a walk. Saturday we did a little bit of nothing! I got to do a little shopping and got some new shorts. Well, on tall people they would probably be shorts. On me they are half pants. Not the most attractive look on my stocky little legs but cooler than pants and they are comfortable. I can probably hem them too.

Sunday we worked outside. Morgan got his garden ready for some planting. It had been unused for a couple of years and I told him if it didn't get taken care of this summer it was going to be turned back into grass!
Yesterday was more yard work and Owen played outside in the "baby yard" I made for him. Basically I fenced him in with some decorative fencing. The stuff that's about 10 inches high. So he had a little area to play where he wouldn't get into things he shouldn't. Then he had a swim in the pool.
Then we made a memorial day dinner of grilled chicken, potato salad, green salad, and chocolate cake. My friend Maggie joined us for dinner. It was nice to spend some time with her as I don't get to see her everyday anymore like I had for the last 5 years! Thank you for coming Maggie!

Today I'm back to house work. I'm finally getting caught up on the laundry. I don't dirty as many clothes as when I was working but I think Owen just makes up for that! And Morgan dirties twice as many because he works out during lunch! And I've got towels and bed linens to catch up on too!

So after a wonderful weekend it's back to the work of the home! I do love that I don't have to leave the house for this work though!

Our weekend was like yours; we didn't go very far except for a couple of walks, but sometimes I like it that way - especially with a busy couple of weeks coming up :)

sometimes the normalcy of life is what makes it so wonderful. =o)

Sounds like yet another person who had a great weekend! ;) I'm happy too that the forecasters were wrong, wrong, WRONG! Although that rain we had on Saturday did have me a little worried...LOL!

Sounds good to me and I think we need to be more thankful for the "norma" days we have too! I like that I don't have to leave home for my job too and that I can stay in my "comfy pants" all day if I want to!!

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend full of projects and entertaining. I'm due for some summer shopping too. Right now I'm all caught up with house chores but tomorrow it'll be another story...

It sure sounds like you guys had an AWESOME weekend. Mine was very nice also (with the exception of that toothache). We did go to a friends BBQ on Sunday and it was terrific. Yesterday I did most of the laundry 6 loads! Still need to do the linens!
