Another weekend has come and gone and unfortunately, it flew right past me!
It's Monday. All......day.....long.
I have been working since about 6:45 this morning and decided to take a few minutes and post some pictures I took this weekend. My parents both sent me sweet comments recently about how much they enjoy the pictures and I am a pleaser, so more pictures I will give them. I wonder if being a pleaser is part of being the middle child. I'm sure it is.
When I arrived at the meet, the Freshman herd had just run past and kicked up an enormous amount of dust. The aftermath of dust in the air was beautiful in the early morning light.
This next series of pictures is the start of the JV Boys race. I just hit click, click, click, click when the gun went off. Don't strain to hard to find Harry, he is all the way on the other side. I just thought if you had never been to a race that this might give you some idea of how many kids are running and the big rush to get off the starting line. It is really impressive.
I had started my early morning in jeans and a sweater cause it was chilly. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Chilly, chilly, chilly. It has been far too long since we have felt chilly. By the time we got done with football I was a sweaty mess. Dang jeans felt like they were on fire with the sun beating down on them. Could not wait to get into some A/C and some shorts!
We all crashed at the house Saturday afternoon and watched the Bama game. It was a good one. Roll Tide.
I went out to dinner with some friends on Saturday night. It was a terrific little restaurant I had never been to before with great drinks. I had a Mexican Martini and it was served with the silver shaker thing. I love that! What I didn't love was the loud music. We had to read lips half the night. Does that mean we are old? Young people don't complain about the music being too loud, do they?
So after all of our activities on Saturday we all slept in. Except Chip. He doesn't believe in sleeping in. But he gets up and quietly goes down stairs so it is fine with us. He used to wake us up. That was not good.
Sunday, I had my camera out ready to capture some every day moments. This one is classic. Harry wakes up, staggers downstairs, goes pee, then sprawls in the floor. I do my "Hey buddy. Good morning. Did you sleep good? Is your nose stuffy or do you feel much better?" He gives me a few answers and then I start in with...
So what kind of homework do you have?
Dang summer...get outta here already.
I had a cross country fundraising meeting Sunday afternoon, so I missed the fun at the pool. Then it was a trip to the grocery store, laundry, etc. To top off my weekend, I went to book club last night. I love book club.
So that was it. It was a busy but fun weekend. What did you do? Any home improvement projects? I am so ready to paint a wall! I have paint swatches taped up on several walls in the house and as soon as I get a free weekend I am going to paint something!
For the time being, I expect to be a bit overwhelmed with this new proposal for most of the
