How was your weekend?  Ours was busy!  Linking up with Heather etc. right here!  

Friday after school I made a cocktail and read on my patio for a bit.  

Jack went to a play and Tom, Mason, and I ate at The Caspian Grill.  I had falafel.  Mason and Tom had gyros but I didn’t get a photo.  Mason had started getting a cough the day before so he was fine to lay low this weekend.  

Remember my teen post last week?  I knew as soon as I posted that I would be tested and I was.  Friday morning Jack didn’t want to go to school because he didn’t sleep well Thursday night.  We told him if he didn’t go to school he didn’t get to go to the play.  Well, he made it through the school day just fine, went to his gaming club after school, and then went to his play.  He argued so much with us Friday morning and he really put me in a bad mood as I headed to school.  

Saturday morning I went to a neighborhood yard sale.  I only made it to maybe 5 because I was having no luck and it was so cold outside!  Oh well.  

I finished my last book and started this.  I really like the story but it is rated R!  

Saturday afternoon Tom and I headed to the monthly Flea Off Market.  

I got a Kentucky mule.  

I wore my new Target poncho with my camo leggings and my bee glasses.  Tom does not like them.  

We saw this cool mural.  

Then, we checked out this new market with booths for food, drink, and arts and crafts type stuff.  

We bought honey and bee pollen.  (You are supposed to eat a few pieces of pollen to keep allergies at bay.  It must be local pollen.)  Guess who liked my bee sunglasses?  Yup, the beekeeper really liked them!  Take that, Tom!  

And, for dinner I picked up Blaze.  Do you have a Blaze?  It is really thin crust pizza that you order up like a Subway sandwich and it is ready in 3 minutes!  

At Blaze, I had my first blog sighting!  Meaning, my sweet reader Laura came up to me and said hi and that she reads my blog!  Hi Laura!  I’m so glad you spoke to me!  I once saw a blogger and I was too shy to say anything.

Since Mason was sick, he and I started watching The Politician on Netflix.  I’m not sure what I think yet.  It only has one season and eight episodes.

And, Sunday was grocery, meal prep, Goodwill shopping with Jack, and then watching our friend in his third Ironman.  They had to cancel the swim portion due to algae in the water but it was a beautiful day for the bike and run portions.  

Look at that view of our walking bridge across the river to Indiana!  

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  1. I love your bee glasses! I’m so jealous of your cool weather – please send some this way! I think that is so exciting that you had a reader approach you! I have not had that happen but can imagine it would be exciting. I know how start struck I felt when I met my first blogger at an event – she seemed like a celebrity to me!

  2. Oh teenagers and their testing… my mom always told us kids if we were too sick to go to school (or tired or hurt or whatever) than we were too sick (or tired or hurt or whatever) to go out and have fun. She wasn’t wrong but I may have tried to argue my point a time or two.

  3. You have so much to do in your area! That’s what I really love about Florida too – the options for activities one day are endless! Even though I live in a capital city (a fantastic city by the way), there is no comparison to your range of restaurants, markets, shops…
    My husband is also eating honey to prevent allergy next spring, but I haven’t heard of pollen! My colleague is actually a beekeeper, I have to ask her!
    Have a beautiful Tuesday!

    1. We really do. We have a lot of free activities, too. Louisville is known for its non chain restaurants, too. You have to eat a lot of honey compared to a tiny amount of pollen to reap the benefits is what I’ve read. But local honey will still help.

  4. Hello! I am a school librarian in Virginia. In November, the AASL (American Association of School Librarians) is holding their national conference in your beautiful city. Besides Churchland Downs, what are some must sees for Louisville. What unique shopping areas are there? I know you have mentioned some on your blog. Enjoy reading your posts.
    Thank you!

    1. Churchill Downs will be running their fall meet but check the website because I believe they only race Thursday – Sunday.
      The Nulu area is really cool – shops and restaurants. The Highlands also would be good. You could do the urban bourbon trail downtown and my favorite is Evan Williams. The 21 C hotel has art and is really cool just to pop in and visit. You don’t have to stay there. You can eat at The Brown Hotel and try the original hot brown. If you have time I love City Taste Tours – a two hour bus tour.
      Hope this helps! Enjoy!
