I was ever so glad to see the weekend come along this past week. After a very tiring week I was happy to have two days off with not much to do. On Saturday I did my usual grocery shopping and buying supplies for my mother in law. I did get to visit with her through her door, which is glass, for a few minutes on Saturday. I also made a cake for my nephew’s seventeenth birthday and delivered it to him. I made a quick trip to the Mennonite Farm Market close to my house. I bought a few gourds for my front porch and some cucumbers and some cinnamon rolls. These rolls are truly unbelievable. One of my favorite things about visiting the farm market, other than the cinnamon rolls, is the beautiful scenery around the farm. I was hoping more leaves had turned but the color is still a little bland. The weather has turned really dry and the leaves are brittle and falling to the ground in big crunchy piles.
On Sunday I watched a couple of movies and knitted and snuggled the babies and basically caught up on laundry and things like that. I had the house to myself this weekend because the hubs had to work. I put chili in the crock pot and knitted on a new scarf. I decided that I would like to go out in the back yard and lay on a blanket in the sunshine. I just knew that Scruffy would want to do this with me. I felt like I needed Vitamin C. Maybe even get some color on these pasty white things sticking out of my shorts, better known as my legs. I opened the back door to go out onto the deck and Molly tore into the house and wanted in her room. Yes she has her own room. It’s the laundry room but it is all hers and we refer to it as Molly’s room. HA!! This got Scruffy all freaked out and he refused to go out the back door onto the deck and out to the back yard. Don’t ask, I have no idea why he just refused to go out the back door. I put Molly in her room and got Scruffy outside. Kitty Kitty was looking at us like we had all lost our minds.
I found a good sunny spot for the blanket and got settled on it with my knitting and book. But once I got out on the blanket I noticed that Scruffy refused to get on the blanket. He just stood next to it looking at me like “Mom what are you doing? why are we not walking?” Scruffy likes being outside if he is taking a walk but otherwise he prefers the comforts of the house. I finally gave up and went inside. No ants crawling up my legs and the couch was a lot comfier.
All in all a very nice weekend just what I needed to gear up for the week. I will be linking with another blogger next week for a post called The Weekly Smile. It will be about things that make you smile during your week. So think about it this week when you catch yourself smiling at something cute or nice or just because you are happy. Hopefully this will become a weekly post where we will share what makes us smile. I think we all need more smiles during these crazy times.
Have a wonderful week
Love your day your way!!!!
