This Week-end I . . .

Keys to the Cottage

  • Ended a great VBS, working in the kitchen. Made about 250 snow cones during the week.
  • Rode my bike to the gym, then worked out.

  • Went to the recycle center with DC to off-load branches he had sawed off the big front yard tree.

  • Picked some cherries from my sister's tree - first year it has had enough to pick. Hope to get at least one pie.

  • Split a yummy Subway sandwich with DC.

  • Finally succeeded in booking a ticket for Kev to come home for a week later this month. Waaayyy too expensive, but worth every penny.

  • Had a nice visit with my sis-in-law, here from Idaho, while my brother, husband, and BIL went to a showing of WWII planes.

  • Came home from the grocery store to find four starving little girls had arrived. Fed them grilled hot dogs (Nathan's are the best).
  • Finally got the kitchen cleaned up in between putting groceries away, getting bath water ready, and mediating all of the other "stuff" that goes on with 4 female siblings.

  • Wore a dress to church that hasn't fit for at least 3 years. Fun!
  • Had a blessed service with a missionary from Mozambique.

  • Shared a wonderful lunch with missionary and other friends at Mimi's.

  • Learned that my missionary uncle went to heaven last night after a long, worthy life. Wishing I could go to Minnesota for the funeral. Same problems as above - high fares - and those 4 little girls --

  • Began Continuance phase of PRISM weight loss program. Still 2 pounds to go, but I'll do it!

  • Relaxed and caught up on some DVR'd retro shows.

  • Finally remembered to do "This Week-end I . . ."

    Don't perish from envy for all the excitement! Join the fun over at Becky's place

What a weekend!!!! Can I be tired just from reading it????

Glenda said...

Enjoyed reading your list!! You are one busy lady . . . Could you send some of your energy this way?!!

Sorry about your uncle. Is he someone whose name I'd recognize from mission literature?

Hope your week is a good one . . . and that you rest somewhere along the way! And congrats again on your weight loss!

I'm tired too! You have an incredible amount of energy.

So sorry about your Uncle.....but what joy he is having right now!

Come to Florida! With all that weight loss, working out, bike riding and yard work....oh, not to mention running after little would have to look great in a bathing suit.

Enjoyed reading about what you did this weekend! I have been straining my brain to remember if I did anything! Nope, can't remember a thing! ;~}

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Busy, busy week for you. Or should I say week-end? The hot dogs sound scrumptious. I know what you mean about air fares...not to mention all the hoopla you need to go through to board a plane these days with the security. And I KNOW you'll get to your goal on the weight loss. You are a determined gal. And that I find in you a strength a lot of us don't possess!

Oh and your comment you left for me about your grandkids not knowing the songs of yesteryear unless you play it for them? Well, I must say here and now ===="Play it Dawn" "Play As Time Goes By". hehehehe

Becky said...

Well I AM envious. A good old fashioned "normal" sort of weekend. Busy and healthy. That is the way I like mine.

I am so glad your son is coming to see you. That will be a joyous reunion.

Beth Zimmerman said...

Found you through "This Weekend, I..." and loved your list ... and your heart! Delighted to choose to follow! :)

Linds said...

Just a quiet weekend then, Dawn???! I am amazed you manage to keep up the pace and keep grinning too!
Very well done - losing weight is always a mega battle and you should be really proud of yourself!

Laurie in Ca. said...

Wow, I am tired after reading all that you have accomplished and can still write about it. :) Hope your week is a restful and wonderful one. Love you.

Love and Hugs, Laurie
