sunday -1 hour

today is sunday! this weekend has been really good.

friday was casey’s birthday party! it was fun, and i am glad everyone that came was there. brian had fun, too.

saturday, i slept pretty late for the first time in quite a while. after waking up, i had a delicious biscuit (homemade by brian). after that, we cleaned the house, which took a long time. the only reason it took a long time was because i had about a million articles of clothing to hang up. i also went through several stacks of papers that i’ve avoided forever to weed out the junk. woo! the good thing is: if you wait long enough and ignore the stack, most of it becomes junk by the time you clean it up! 🙂

the reason we cleaned so much is because brian’s college roommate/friend, matt, and his wife, elise, were coming to our house saturday evening to meet and go out to dinner. they live in huntsville now, and matt loves to come to barber’s to ride his bike when they have special riding events. we had fun! we were only with them for 2.5 or 3 hours, but it was good times.

today, we went to church like always.we walked today since it’s walk/bike/carpool to church month. it was a good walk! sunday school was good; we had repeat visitors, and everyone participated in the conversation (including the visitors). contact was pretty good, too. after church, we met with brian’s parents outside the church and rode with them to mugshot’s for a big lunch. his parents liked it a lot, so that’s good. it’s always nice to have another place as an option.

after lunch, we rode to brian’s parents’ house. there, we visited poor pearl, who is still recuperating from her surgery. i also got a few plants from their yard to bring to my hard. after we walked home, i planted them in the backyard. that inspired me to work in the woods, and i made tons of progress. i even drug out this hugh metal thing (which we’ve finally identified as a feeding trough!) that’s been up there for who knows how many decades. we have to find a way to cut it in half before i can put it on the street for pickup because it’s probably a good 14 feet long. after carrying out tons of brush from the woods and getting tangled in some briars, my legs seriously look like i’ve been lashed with a whip and are burning, but they’ll be fine. i look like a sweet tiger!

after working back there, i sat on the porch and read a couple of chapters in one of the books i’m reading.

for dinner, i’ve already eaten some leftover ravioli from one night’s dinner, and i might eat another biscuit later with some apple butter or honey. mmmmmm

now, it’s tv time!

GOOD THING: lots of fun things this weekend
BAD THING: didn’t sleep much last night at all

february weekend

So far, the weekend has been good. Brian and I went to Longhorn Friday night because I could get my usual meal for free. Firecracker Chicken Wraps are the BOMB DIGGITY. I also got a sweet potato. Afterwards, we went to Kripsy Kreme! We hardly ever go – maybe 2 times a year, but we had coupons to get 2 free – so we got 6 hehe. We also rented Cyrus from Publix, and it was pretty good. Today, I didn’t sleep that late. I never do lately because I have stopped taking my muscle relaxer at night, which is why it’s usually so hard for me to get up, I think. Anyway, I got up and went outside to work in the yard/woods. My work was very productive! I’m pumped about that. Afterwards, I took a shower and bummed around the house a while. We went to Surin tonight because we had more coupons, but I ended up not using it because I opted to get soup & sushi instead of an entree. Brian also let me eat one of his crab angels. The dinner was scrumptious. We came home and ate orange rolls! Brian watched a ridiculous movie on tv while I looked online all night, and now that it’s over, there is NOTHING on tv to watch.

Today was so beautiful! I love when it’s so perfect, you just want to go outside when you wake up and never come back in. 🙂

GOOD THING: Choxie is so cute.
BAD THING: have to get up early tomorrow
