The weekend started with lunch with three of my besties on Friday. We TRY to go to lunch on the first Friday of every month. I've written about them before. We raised our kids together and we go to the same church and they often keep me sane -- even when they don't know they are doing that for me!
Friday night was quiet. Mark had spent Wednesday night with his mom and Thursday night at the farm. We ate some sort of leftovers or a turkey sandwich for dinner. Then we watched a couple of episodes of the two shows we are watching right now -- Hanna and Tehran. Both are gripping.
Saturday morning, I hit the ground running and went to my WW (Weight Watchers) meeting and then hit up the grocery story. Do you know that there was not a single chicken breast - fresh nor frozen - in my grocery story on a Saturday morning???? For some reason, it slightly freaks me out when I see whole sections of the grocery store EMPTY. I can't imagine being a mother needing to buy formula.
Our weekend got busy at this point. We had granddaughter #2 for several hours while her mommy and daddy went to an appointment.
|To me, this is a real life photo. We|
have playdough from one end of the
island to the other -- yes, that is a
bowtie wearing cat that Gran made!
The stack of books and laptop
at the end of the island were
what I was using to write my
Sunday School lesson.

preparing lunch for an almost

a little sliced turkey, some
fresh strawberries, and an
apple juice pouch . . .

Gran saw it at the store and it is
always nice to have a new toy.
I recommend this one though
the song it plays might
drive you nuts.
|This is my pretty niece (mother of the mother-to-be).|
My sister (mother of my niece :-)) is 13 years older
than me but my niece is only 8 years
younger than me.
|I actually left before she started opening her presents.|
This is what Mark and I bought her -- a high
chair from her registry.

my sister. This baby will be my
sister's first great grandbaby.

She made the cutest baby

shower games but this was fun!

missing the middle one! I hadn't

|I had never seen these clear blocks|
before. They filled them with balloons.
I stayed about an hour at the shower and drove home. Just FYI - gas was $4.599 when I filled up. Since I had an hour and 15 minute drive, I listened to the book we are studying with the young adults -- Ordering Your Private World by Gordon MacDonald. I love audible!
