Weekending.

...also known as yikes! how can it be Monday (again) already?!

Here's a peek at a few of the highlights from my weekend:

  • I started listening to the backlog of podcasts that had accumulated since I started Book Bingo reading in early June. So now I've heard the last of Ann and Michael (and yep, I cried).
  • I also made a pretty decent start on cleaning out closets and cupboards. I have a big pile of books, clothing and other stuff to donate. (Now there's just one more room to go - my "yarn room" - which also has the biggest closet.)
  • Katie and Charlie spent Friday night and much of Saturday with us (while Rob painted the boys' rooms and hung bead board in their bathroom). It was a treat to have them - even if Marc and I needed an extra night's sleep to recover (man, toddlers are exhausting)!
  • Saturday morning, Katie, Charlie & I visited the Alpharetta Farmers Market. It's a regular weekend stop for them, but it was my first time there in years. It's a lot better than I remember and I hope to make it a regular stop for us, too.
  • Because Marc and I both enjoyed Saturday night's dinner of fresh vegetables, cheeses, salami and crackers and a small pizza. (along with a little wine and a movie on Netflix whose title I can't even recall...yeah, we were tired!)
  • A huge thunderstorm blew through early Saturday evening and left behind a gorgeous sky and sunset.
  • and slightly cooler temperatures which made for a not-too-hot run to the lake on Sunday morning (and a lovely shot of blue sky blooms).
  • I spent a few hours at the shop taking photos for their new website. The shop really looks great (it's hard to believe we've been in the space for almost six years). Theresa has added a lot of needlepoint threads and canvases and a few new yarns as well. I'm really excited about all the possibilities (and I might've even added a few new skeins to my stash :-) 

All that good stuff made it even harder to wrap my head around the news from Baton Rouge (following the news from Turkey). Sad, crazy times. (and that was even before the Republican convention kicked off this week ... ok, I'm done!)

Hoping your weekend was full of the good stuff, too.

Your weekend sounds both fun and productive, and your Saturday night dinner looks especially delicious. So much better than popcorn and wine! I'm not much of a book podcast listener, but a friend just sent me this: https://www.newinbooks.com/ear-worms-for-book-worms-12-literary-podcasts-youll-love/
Maybe you can find a replacement for BOTNS?

Beautiful photos of the skies, and your plate of food sounds summery and delicious. Yes, living with little ones takes lots of energy! We are always happily exhausted when we return from seeing the grandchildren. Wishing you a happy week ...

I didn't think I'd miss Ann and Michael as much as I am! There are SO many great podcasts and, when I had a chance, I listened this weekend, too. We're going through a heatwave now and I am wishing for some cooler nights. The dry southern wind is really a scorcher. Charlie must be busy non-stop! He's so cute!

I miss Ann and Michael, too. Have you tried any of the podcasts they recommended to see if there are any good ones to help us with book recommendations? Glad your weekend was a good one, I bet it was fun to have a Katie/Charlie sleepover.

Sometimes I just need to move into my cave -- so I can ignore all the STUFF of the world. At least for a little while. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend! XO

Your weekend was filled with wonderful things - a perfect antidote to all of the crazy and sad things going on in the world. I have some clearing out of closets to do too, but so far have been successful in procrastinating - maybe in the fall.

Good thing you cleared a closet or two for the new yarns...love that you and Marc were bone tired after a nite or two with Charlie; how quickly we forget...not too sure I can take much more...what time's the next train to far- away from "civilization"?
Ha!
