Oh how I love the weekend!
This past weekend, although WAY too short, was a just in time break from a crazy work week. We have a new senior level manager at work, and life there is just a bit more crazy and hectic than it’s been in awhile.
The weekend started with daughter and Peanut coming Friday evening for a spend the night visit. They were able to stay until Saturday afternooon, so there was a lot of grandmommy spoiling time.
Saturday night I had a ladies night out with some friends from church. We do a Secret Pal drawing twice a year, and we just finished the first period of the year, so we had a pot luck supper to reveal secret pals. It was great fun, and after the reveal we watched ‘The Help’. I recommend the movie for those of you who like to have a good cry now and then. I’m NOT one of those people and will usually avoid a movie like that, but chose to stay. Yes, the tear ducts got all cleared out. There were ten or so women going between sniffling, sobbing and laughing at ourselves for the entire couple of hours.
I am very pleased to say that even with a grocery shopping trip with my daughter and a potluck with dishes from some fantastic cooks, I’m down a pound this morning from last Friday, so I’m a pretty happy camper. My daughter did head straight for the bakery when we entered the grocery store, then stopped and said ‘oh my gosh, we head straight here every time don’t we?”. We then promptly left the bakery and settled on Mango Italian Ice and celery and peanut butter for snacks. Of which we had neither once we got home. But we were prepared.
I took a less than healthy dish to the potluck myself, but didn’t pig out on it. It was Baked Potato Salad, and, oh my it’s good. I’ll post the recipe for it soon, it’s great to take to a pot luck.
Sunday was a LAZY day, I didn’t lift a finger all day. A real lazy summer Sunday, as it should be.
There’s some landscaping progress at our house, hopefully I’ll have beautiful pictures and an update soon.
Meanwhile, Happy Monday. Every day can’t be a weekend day.
