aka Weekending with the Oscars. also – finally! – A Sunday with Sunshine! and oh my goodness, it’s also been a Monday with Sunshine. TWO days in a row. Of course the golf course is closed on Mondays. and I missed knitting with my girls because I found a boo-boo in my sample knit after I blocked it (and therefore had to fix it). but still. I’d rather have bad news on a sunny day. and looking back over the photos I have to share from my weekend still makes me smile. Hoping they’ll do the same for you!
We got a great start with Friday Night Snacks
(many of y’all have commented that your significant other doesn’t think “snacks” is a meal … maybe try showing them a roasted chicken breast, two roasted sausages, two hardboiled eggs, four servings of vegetables and cheese 😉 plus olives, hummus and crackers and then chop it up, put it on a big plate and call it DINNER! just sayin’)
and The Children Act. We loved the movie. I even managed to get over the fact that I hadn’t read the book first.
Saturday was still rainy, but I found a window for a morning walk and didn’t get too wet.
I enjoyed a two hour FaceTime with Diane and then spent the afternoon knitting (and re-knitting) the sleeves for my sample knit. Along the way, Marc roasted a turkey breast and sweet potatoes and (yes AND!) a salad with bacon and blue cheese. (sometime in all of last week’s rain he also installed a dimmer switch for the light over our kitchen table and we enjoyed the “low light” with candles.)
After dinner, we watched A Star Is Born. Oh My. Y’ALLL!!!!!! The movie didn’t even end until nearly 10:00 and I didn’t fall asleep once. not even a brief doze. and I stopped knitting after about the first 15 minutes. It felt like a good omen for Sunday.
and it was. I walked. the sun came out.
Church. knitting (not on the sample). reading (mostly listening while walking and knitting). FaceTime with Sara. and then
Noticing that the sun is nowhere near setting at 6pm.
Live-texting the Red Carpet show with the two women who make me laugh (and also keep me honest and up-to-date).
I bid them peace-out at 8 to get back to my book (and bed), so I didn’t see this stellar moment until this morning. All the hearts!!
Also – shoutout to @sophieandlili – her feed is fun and just a little bit snarky and if you love the royals, you should follow her.
Finally, thank y’all so much for your kind comments about my mini-blogging-break last week. I am intentionally blogging less right now to make room for other things … but losing connection with y’all is the potential downside. I’d like to find a regular three to four times a week routine – but sometimes it might be more like one to two. Thank you for being here with me!
