How was your weekend? I am linking up with Heather at My Glittery Heart and Tanya at The Other Side of the Road. Thanks ladies for providing the Hello Monday link up!
Even though last week was a short week after the Labor Day holiday, it literally kicked my butt. I woke up Monday feeling either sick or the effects of fall allergies (but never stayed home from work), we had the start of community theater after school for son Jack, our boys’ birthdays were Thursday, we had Open House at my school/the boys’ school Thursday night, a renovation going on at our house, and a German cousin visiting!
On Friday at school we played Scrabble for the last 20 minutes or so of class. I have authentic Scrabble boards from Spain. These are some of my sweet AP Spanish girls.
Friday after school I came home and took a nap. Then I got up and got a medicine ball tea from Starbuck’s for myself but also one for Mason who had reported that he was feeling poorly, too! Have you tried this tea? I really think it helps! I also don’t think you have to be sick to enjoy one. Teavana makes some really good teas!
Son Jack had a theater retreat after school Friday followed by dinner and a show for families. We headed over from 6-8 and it was a lot of fun. Then, Jack went bowling with theater friends.
Jack on left. His group won for best skit.
I went to bed around 10 and slept until 7:00! I think I got almost 9 hours of sleep and boy, did I need it! Jack had community theater from 10-12 and a choir car wash from 12-2. I took him and went to Trader Joe’s, Kroger, and to get two more medicine ball teas for Mason and I.
I just love these little pumpkins! I will add those to my decor when we get closer to October. Post on my decor coming tomorrow!
I finished this book. I do recommend even though it drug a bit. I especially recommend it if you have ever thought of doing the camino in Spain/France or if you are Catholic. It’s not just about those things but the references are very cool.
Then, I started this. It’s really cute!
Saturday was so nice. I didn’t leave the house after my morning errands. I read, watched t.v., cleaned, cooked, sat outside for a bit. I had almost no voice and it felt good just to be home. Our German cousin got invited to tailgate and go to the U of L football game so it was just the four of us until after the game.
Hub worked on the brick mess. Our brick is completely done but I guess clean up is not included. We ordered a dumpster (from our friend!) and I told hub he could start “construction cross fit”. He was getting a work out.
Sunday morning our German cousin left after being with us for almost two weeks. He had to drive himself to Detroit for his next filmmaking assignment. I cooked breakfast for him, cleaned up, and started all of the laundry, did some school work, and the good news is – Mason and I were feeling much better! Let’s home hub doesn’t get it because he is the worst sick person ever!
That’s about all I can say for my weekend!
How was yours? September really is a busy month!
