Golden Weekend

I was astounded to find a great, shining, yellow orb in the sky this weekend. It has been long since I was able to enjoy the warmth of the sun as my ghostly moon-tan can prove. I believe spring may just be here. Spending an afternoon of backyard lunch, gardening, and soaking up some rays was just the thing needed this weekend. I like all the seasons for their own merits and feel pretty content when they start to change.This weekend was a nice lazy weekend, the kind where you don’t really have anywhere to be or anything set to do. We ended up running a lot of errands on Saturday and getting through some ongoing projects at home. Sunday we always start by attending church. We were able to sleep in as I won’t have to sing in the 8:15am service until Palm Sunday. When I sing we have to be there at 7:30am which means leaving home at 7:00am at the latest. Afterwords we were able to visit with my parents and brother for a little while. After that we went to visit Brandon‘s mother and also his grandmother who came down from Minnesota this week to stay for a month or so.Our lazy weekend ended up being not so lazy after all as is usually the case. Next weekend we are on a chili team for our church’s annual chili cookoff to support the missions trips in the church. Our team leader says he usually wins every other year and this year he is due. It should be fun helping out more this year, I am making a side and hopefully it will be submitted for the side dish prize. I have to find the perfect recipe for some yummy jalepeno cheese cornbread which I plan to make from “scraps” as my uncle likes to say. No cutting corners for me, I’m a glutton for punishment.

R & R

This weekend marked the end of the hectic pace that has been with us since before Christmas. Other than minor things Stuart and Ann’s wedding was a success. We are happy to say that we found her car keys. 🙂 I look forward to weekends of not having to be any where or do anything for a while. Since I have been running so hard lately I decided to stop pushing myself so much and took the day off of work yesterday. This is such a rarity for me, I think I have called in sick 4 times since I started working here almost 3 years ago. It was nice to not have to be anywhere or get stressed out by everyone else’s usual panic. So I spent the day resting and working on a project I need to complete before Stuart and Ann move to Arizona on March 31.
