Had a wonderful weekend! Got so much house cleaning done Saturday. Amazed myself! We started a fire in our area. Hubby was grumbling about doing it...as he always does. Neighbor came over and chatted and then Andy and Kristie came in. They didn't bring the dogs this time. Her brother was watching them.
Had a wonderful evening. We roasted hot dogs and made smores. We had these huge marshmellows...found out they were way too big but fun. They made good torches :) It was relaxing and fun around the campfire. We stayed out until 9:30 when it got dark. As we were walking in daughter in law and I saw 3 deer in the neighbors yard. We hadn't noticed them. The sounds sitting around the campfire was neat...reminded you of camping and years gone by. It was nice hearing the sounds of the birds...even into the evening.....Neat time.
Leaning to pack half to go home. Probably be better if I boxed half up to begin with but haven't started that habit yet.
Enjoyed time with son and daughter in law. They left about 8:30. We had a nice weekend. Feel like I got a lot accomplished.
Sunday off to Church and Mom in a snit again. Struggling to not let her get to me. We took an adventure...and change of pace is hard for her. Went to Cheesecake Factory for Brunch. She can be so difficult and gripy. Then the guys wanted to go to Apple Store so we walked to Charming Charlies and looked around at costume jewlery. It was a nice day out and amazing Grandma could walk it. Guess it shows she can do what she wants to do. Usually she has to go to bathroom all the time and I kept asking her and she didn't. Guess that means she hasn't been drinking much. She didn't have to go all morning/afternoon until we took her home around 2. Meanwhile I had to go. She drank 2 cups of decaf and thought she'd surely have to go.
We had bough son a new drive for his computer so the guys tinkered with that in the afternoon and daughter in law and I got to sit and chat some. Of course we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner....never have a bad meal there.
Am changing some at brunch only ate 1/2 my meal and dinner only ate 1/2 my meal. All of a sudden I was full. Used to force myself to finish it or keep pushing until my plate was empty. L
