A long weekend Saturday

Yesterday was such a nice day. M & I both got in a run in the morning, and then went to a wine tasting, and had lunch together. The weather was lovely, & it was so great to just have some time to talk & catch each other up on work, life & how things are going. Those conversations can be hard to have both because we're really busy & because COVID means there are always others around & listening. :-) 

We came home & picked up Sam for his soccer game. They lost 0-2, but it was a fun match to watch. We made dinner & relaxed together.

Gratuitous plant picture. I love the color & number of blooms on this rhododendron in our yard. It's definitely having it's moment this week.

So with that, what's happening today? Plenty to do, as usual:

  • The boys have a soccer scrimmage
  • I'm planning to run
  • I have some yard work/gardening to take care of
  • I'm making eggroll in a bowl for dinner. Yum.
  • I'm going to do some travel planning for our Hawaii trip
  • I have some banking chores to take care of
  • Laundry
  • Wash all of the bedding
  • Sit in the sun & read my book
  • Make the menu plan & grocery list
  • Pick up our weekly groceries
  • Shred cabbage & carrots for dinner & future coleslaw
That's it for us. What about you? What are you up to this weekend?


  1. Sure sounds like your Friday was a perfect day. Your rhododendron is gorgeous - talk about a sign of spring! Sounds like a busy Saturday as usual for you. Cleaning, laundry and menu planning here today. Enjoy the weekend!

  2. The rhododendron is loaded and beautiful.

    I'm making vegetable soup today as it's rainy and chilly.

    I hope you have a great weekend.

    1. I love that plant - it always cheers me up when I see it. SO bright & beautiful.
