My Perfect Weekend

Sorry for the lack of post, but we have been busy with life and it's really nothing that we have captured on film or something worth blogging. Soonn Baseball will be starting up so the blog will be going wild.

On Saturday I was asked to describe my perfect Saturday. What I didn't know was that I was at the begining of a perfect weekend. Let me tell you about my perfect weekend.

Saturday was near perfect. After I got home from Bible Study David, Josiah & myself cleaned off Josiah's exploding bookshelf. Alex went to his dad's house (example one of why it wasn't perfect- no Alex). We then jumped in the van and headed for the library. I love going to the library, not because I enjoy reading, (I really don't) but because Josiah's face lights up with the overwhelming number of books. Then we took all of Josiah's old book's to half price books so he could trade them all in for a couple of new books.

Then home. We then spent the afternoon hanging out, playing games and I even got to work on my quilt... I will post on that later. David went to xbox night with the guys (reason 2 it was short of perfect, but I'm not complaining I enjoy an evening free now and then).
I spent the afternoon reading a new mystery novel and at Josiah's book time he came out and curled on the couch with me and we both read our books together. Too bad no photos. Josiah headed to bed & I told him I would tuck him in in a few minutes. Two minutes later Josiah came into the living room and very simply said "Mom, I think it's time you put the book down." I have to admit it was super cute.

Then I curled up in bed with a bad chick flick and ended up finishing my book anyways.

Sunday was a normal Sunday, Church and football. The Patriots won & so did the Giants. David proclaimed that there will be no Superbowl for him this year- ouch... we will see if he actually watched the game or not- I would be willing to bet he does.

And Monday was the PERFECT day. I actually spent the whole day in my PJ's. There was NO bickering between the boys and we all just hung out and yes, I even got to work on my quilt.

It's going to be hard going back to work tomorrow- especially since I have had a nap all three days. What a great weekend!

What fun to read about such a lovely weekend. I am glad you got some time with all the things you love, your hubby, your boys, a book and quilting. At least you can head back to work refreshed (and it will be a short work week)!

Much Love,
