I swear, this was a wonderful weekend.
Paulius and I actually got some yard-work done- lots and lots of mulching in front of the house. My oldest son, Frank, helped a lot, too.
Paulius and I stayed up late, and then made breakfast together and ate it in the kitchen.
When we first got married, we did that every day but the past few months instead of coming straight home from work I would go to the hospital to be with Daddy, so we kinda got out of the habit.
It is absolutely our favorite time to talk with each other and we really have missed it.
Not much is better than lingering and chatting over a breakfast of toast and eggs and bacon, with an over-sized cup of coffee. Lots of cream- not quite so much sugar.
After breakfast we mulched the yard- actually got out and did a bit of manual labor- something I usually try and avoid whenever possible. Wore old comfortable clothes and comfy sneakers. Worked with man-tools like a spade and rake and shovels and scoops wearing leather work gloves.
Arrrrr..arrrrr..arrrr....Tim Allen had nothing on me this weekend!
I don't know about you guys- but I have to be in a certain mood to get out in the elements and get dirty and tired. Not to mention sweaty. Sweaty I usually reserve for other- more fun, shall we say, activities.
It was really nice being out in the fresh COOL air and sunshine for a change. And the yard does look good if I say so myself!
I don't think we had the TV or the Computer on for more than an hour or so this weekend- until the cable-guy came to install the broadband.
Even then, my sweet, darling hubby set it to downloading a couple things and left it to it while he spent some more quality and quantity time with me. Am I not truly blessed or WHAT?
And no sarcasm is intended with that statement either, in case you're wondering.
I baked some made from scratch Chocolate Chip Cookies(and were they good!) and made a meatloaf and mashed potatoes -(real peeled and boiled and mashed- not imitation instant) -dinner. Then my DIL came over and since her and my son didn't have their 5 year old for the night, Marie(DIL- who is expecting ) and I went to Subway and got two foot-long Philly Cheese-steak sandwiches (she was having a craving and since I want a Granddaughter, I am trying to bribe her with anything she is craving) and brought them back and we had a midnight picnic together with our hubbies!!
Paulius and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary this weekend- no not wedding anniversary- it was the anniversary of the first e-mail we sent to each other!!!!
Anyway, It really WAS a wonderful weekend.
I can't wait for the next one!
