How was your weekend? Ours was wet! I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya, and many more so go right here.
Let us start with Friday. I worked for a few hours in the morning and then Ernie and I did our lunch time walk.
I made homemade salsa for the first time from canned diced tomatoes. I had red onion, cilantro, and everything needed. It was pretty good but I might like fresh tomatoes better.
I worked some more and then at 3 my youngest sister and I had a virtual cocktail. I took my slush from last weekend out of the freezer and added Fresca. It was too spicy last weekend and still too spicy this weekend but at least I didn’t let it go to waste! Friday was beautiful.
Friday night I cooked and after dinner Tom and I sat on the patio. It feels like an extra room and when you are home all the time an extra room is so nice.
We have had this propane fire contraption for several years and Tom got it out. It needs a cleaning badly but it was nice.
Saturday I made a layer dip.
And an iced coffee.
And, then the rain came and it rained almost all day Saturday and Sunday until late afternoon.
But, as you can see we still sat outside when it wasn’t a downpour. I love rain, actually. I cannot get through this book, by the way. The cover held so much promise. It is dragging. I am going to try to see it through, but it’s taking me forever. It is supposed to a light chick lit book and nothing is happening!
Then, we got take out for dinner from Roosters. It is like a BW3s with chicken and wings and bar food. It was o.k. Sometimes that type of food isn’t as good when it has to travel home, you know? They have a really good salad that Tom and I split along with some chicken. Saturday night I watched Legally Blonde for a bit. Then, I started a new show I will tell you about it a minute…
I slept in until 7 Sunday and took my coffee outside with a candle. It was pretty cold in the morning.
Then, I had a big outing. I decided to go to Target at 8:15. I wore a scarf and gloves. I got magazines and a new book and food items. There were only the workers who were all wearing masks and maybe 8 people shopping? I couldn’t believe it and I felt so happy to be in a Target. I don’t have a Kroger pick up scheduled for this week and we should be fine after that trip. I really wanted to go to Trader Joe’s but I drove by and they had a line of 20 people outside.
I made another iced coffee and put on my 15 year old Uggs because it was cold!
Saturday night I started Belgravia. I watched one and a half episodes on my cable on demand. Sunday afternoon I finished the second episode and then there were no more! Come to find out, the show just started April 12 and it airs on Epix channel on Sunday nights? So, I hope I have another episode pop up on on demand tomorrow because we don’t get that channel. Has anyone heard of it or watched it? It is by the creator of Downton Abbey.
Jack and I got do do something fun Sunday afternoon. His friend’s mom asked several of her son’s friends to come to the yard at a certain time – like 2:00, 2:30, etc. and wish the him happy birthday. I got a gift bag and movie candy at Target and Jack decorated the bag. You can’t see it well, but this is Jack walking up to the porch where a chair had been placed because of the rain. Jack stayed until the next friend’s shift. I could tell it really energized Jack and made him feel good that he did something nice.
While Jack was visiting, I walked the street and took pictures of the beautiful houses.
and the flowers.
This is in the Highlands area of Louisville.
When I got home, it was time to pay the piper and do the dreaded Sunday school work. I was better last week about getting some plans ready by the end of the day Friday, but I wasn’t perfect and I had about 2 more hours of work to do.
For dinner, I made a taco bar including tator tots for tator tot tacos! Melanie Shankle who many of you might know mentioned this idea on Instagram and I had a portion of a bag in the freezer. It was a big hit. I used little street taco shells, beef, tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, queso, and tator tots.
So, how was your weekend? Any highlights?
Tomorrow some of our medical services are allowed to re-open. Our governor thinks we may have plateaued? I watched some news this weekend and I am happy to see that things seem to be improving in New York and Spain. I didn’t see anything about Italy, but I hope things are much better there, too. I don’t want to talk about the virus but I can’t stop talking about the virus, you know?
Thank you so much for visiting today and I hope you have a decent Monday.
