How was your weekend? I am happy to link up today with Heather, Tanya, and many more here!

Let’s rewind to Friday…

I was so happy that my new chairs arrived! We have needed the portable camp chairs to replace our old (maybe 10 year old?) ones for quite some time. I saw this chair and thought it would be awesome – for taking to outdoor concerts, plays, etc. They are from and only $35 and they arrived in very little time.

I enjoyed reading in my new chair after school!

I made charcuterie and put it on the patio and ordered pizzas.

After pizza and some t.v. I fell asleep pretty early.

Saturday morning I didn’t have to get groceries because I had done Trader’s and a Kroger pick up . during the week. I started my meal prep – I try to prep breakfasts and lunch for me and this week I am having vegetable soup.

Then, I made myself an iced coffee in a wine glass and did some computer work and watched t.v.

I took off to get a mani and pedi around 11. I went with OPI Funny Bunny for both. I rarely get both a manicure and a pedicure at the same time. I hate sitting for that long. Is anyone else like that?

I went home and showered and did some cleaning and laundry and then Jack’s opening night of Shakepeare’s Comedy of Errors was happening! For Covid, they build a stage outdoors in the back of the theatre and we brought our own chairs and food and drink if we wanted – guess what chair I brought? It rained and they had to delay and then they were able to start and it drizzled for much of it.

They set the play in modern times at a Bonnaroo-like music festival. Here is Jack below. He was amazing! Of course, I am biased.

It was really good to see him act after almost a year and a half.

Sunday morning I drank my coffee outside on the patio because it was fairly warm out but it had rained. And, the weather proceeded to get worse all day long. It got colder and we had a wind advisory, so I am glad I got some outdoor time!

I got this card from Tom and some magazines – yay!

and went back to my bed and read them while watching bad t.v. I very rarely do this so it felt decadent.

Then, we went to a movie, The Wrath of Man. It was really good!

Jack on left and Mason on right. Jack has serious photo face.

I love the card they picked out for me because it is so true!

The kids made a reservation for me at a mediterranean restaurant and the four of us had a great meal – but they gave us so much food and we left with four boxes!


I got mango salmon:

Mason got my favorite meal there which is like a vegetable mixture with chicken.

So, that is what we will be having for dinner tonight, too!

I finished this book this weekend too. I really liked it! It is a bit sad, but it wasn’t too much for me.

And, just like that, the weekend was over. What did you do this weekend? I hope it was a good one and that you had better weather!

Three.more.weeks… is hard to believe that we are almost ready to put this school year to bed. I don’t think I will have as much to do on the last teacher day because I didn’t get much out when we returned April 5.

Thanks for reading and have a marvelous Monday!

  1. I love the color you chose for your nails. I don’t enjoy sitting for a mani-pedi either. In fact I usually only go for a pedi if I am with a friend so I can visit while I’m sitting there. We had Mediterranean yesterday too – always a favorite!


    1. Thank you! That is a good idea but it is hard to coordinate pedi needs! Lol! I listened to a podcast and talked to the manicurist and it went by pretty fast. I saw your photos and thought that was funny that we both had mediterranean!


  2. The charcuterie board looks delish! What cheese is that? And the hummus! I want that!
    White nails are so nice, I will paint my toenails as soon as I get myself some white nail polish!
    Weekend was fine, I’m very into Alaska now – The Great alone (I have to return it to the library today… haven’t finished it…) and we discovered Alaska The Last frontier! They complain about winter and how dark it is – we’re on the same latitude! I think the north of Sweden is very similar to Alaska, unfortunately I haven’t been there…
    I have five weeks of teaching left, and one week of teachers’ meetings…


    1. Thank you! The cheese is a merlot soaked cheese that I love! Get some white polish now! Lol! You should be watching a warm weather show! That is funny! 5 more weeks sounds like a lot. I think Swedes maybe have a better attitude about the cold?


      1. Yes on warm weather shows, but we’ve watched all the seasons of Below deck… Nope, we don’t have a better attitude about the cold… 🙂 But I think most of us are ok with the dark winters, it’s very cozy and we are experts on lightning! 5 more weeks, I know… but I actually need it, my covid teaching has not been as effective as it normally is…


      2. I love Below Deck and am watching Below Deck Sailing Yacht. Can you get that one? Same on the Covid teaching – mine is not up to snuff either.


  3. Looks like such an amazing weekend. I love the pic of you and your boys ❤️last night’s dinner looks delish! I love funny bunny…& I’m the same way- I rarely get both a mani and pedi at the same time. I sometimes even get a pedi one week and go back for a mani another week. I’m so glad you got to see jacks play…in your amazing new chairs! Have a great week.
