Awesome weekend

This past weekend was so great. I don't even know why I'm saying that.... maybe it was because it was the first weekend in a while that we just stayed close to home and were alone. My FIL often is coming up for the weekend, since he is helping Aaron redo a room. I really don't mind him visiting, but sometimes it is nice to just be together alone, you know?

Saturday was such a beautiful day weather-wise, I took an 8 mile walk. It felt great to be outside. And Sunday - after yoga, I actually cleaned the house, and organised some things. I know - it seems weird to say that would make a good weekend, but usually we have our house cleaned by a cleaning service. I had canceled them for a few weeks, as we are in the middle of getting a new driveway. So, it's been about 3 weeks since the house has been cleaned. And - we have a cleaning service for the obvious reason - I'm too busy to clean. To actually have time to clean! And - I was moving platters and table linens into our new dining room built in. Then I was inspired to iron all the napkins. Funny how those things were weighing on my mind.

Sunday night, we had friends and family over for a little dinner party - and we grilled steaks, swordfish, salmon and chicken. I had made a cucumber salad and Love, Hope and Faith's Sweet Potato salad. Someone brought coleslaw, and for dessert, berries and fresh whipped cream. It was a fun dinner - good food and great company!

And it's now Monday. Blech. I called my insurance lady, and my stuff has been submitted but not yet approved. Gah.

I am so glad that you had such a great weekend! Something I learned when I started all of this is that if you start bugging the insurance company directly your stuff gets approved rather quickly. :-) Enjoy your Monday!

I'm glad you had such a great weekend. It sounds fun to just hang out and spend time together and get stuff done without other people being around. We frequently have houseguests so I love a weekend alone. I'm glad you tried the Sweet Potato Salad. How did you like it?
