Ah, March – not only does she have five Fridays, she also has five weekends! and this one, #4, was spectacular.
We got to see Charlie get a hit
score a run
and hang out looking “ready”.
Sam didn’t get nearly that much activity … but he ate well. Katie says that the hardest part about these sporting weekends is entertaining the younger sibling(s) … at least there’s food!
This text exchange between Marc and Rob on Saturday evening gives you the “guy’s read” of the game. The dads play a kind of “zone coach” thing while the kids rotate through the various positions. Rob had the short stop zone and Marc snapped this photo when Charlie was playing short stop.
I’m pretty sure Rob knows… 😉
We really did have a great time! It was nearly 2 o’clock by the time we got back home (we stopped for lunch). Marc went to the driving range and I watched another episode of Queer Eye, had a fun FaceTime with Katie and took a nap.
Marc cooked dinner – a pork roast, sweet potatoes and green beans. We watched basketball … and I went to bed early.
Sunday morning was beautiful. I took an early walk by myself … and enjoyed a bit of sunrise
and a brand new-to-me camellia. EVERY one of my solo walks last week took me past the neighborhood with a half dozen of these glorious shrubs on display. I’m so glad I finally noticed.
Such abundant color! …even on the ground.
That’s the last photo I have … I spent the rest of yesterday at church, at Starbucks (knitting with Deena), at my kitchen counter (watching another Queer Eye), at my desk (FaceTime with Sara) … and back at the kitchen counter (nachos for dinner with more basketball).
and remember that sweater I talked about starting on Wednesday? I’m ready to separate the sleeves.
This was just the weekend I needed. family. friends. a nice mix of alone and not-alone time. good food. Queer Eye. sunshine and spring blooms … and sleep.
Marc and I both feel like a renewed sense of energy today. Here’s to carrying it through the week!
