Good morning, friends and happy Monday! Before I dive into the weekend, I wanted to share a special Hello in the language of the Cherokees, who originally occupied the part of Georgia where I live.
“Osiyo means more than just hello to Cherokees. It’s a deeper spirit of welcoming and hospitality that has been a hallmark of the Cherokee people for centuries.”
What a beautiful greeting and a perfect introduction for our weekend.
Friday was full-on sunshine, and full-on smiles … we picked up Charlie late morning and enjoyed a whirlwind 24-hour visit with him. I think this was his first official sleepover (not prompted by his folks being out of town and not accompanied by his brother) and we felt special to share it with him.
We started out with a trip to Home Depot for mums and pumpkins, then a quick stop at Costco for a hotdog. In all the years we’ve shopped there, we’ve never had lunch … clearly we’ve been missing out!
oh yeah, he ate the whole thing!
Next up, we re-planted the pots on our front steps (well, they re-planted and I took photos)
Then it was time for a golf lesson. I took advantage of the 90 minute break to finish up my blog post and catch my breath 😉
Then dinner and a quick FaceTime with his mom and brother.
After a shower, it was movie time
and a chance for me to practice my Boomerang skills (it’s way harder than it looks!)
We read a couple of pages of Harry Potter and it was lights out. … and a good night’s sleep for everyone! Which was good, because Legos started before 6am
and finished just a few hours later
Just in time for a quick trip to the Farmers Market for breakfast … and one last photo (this boy does LOVE to eat!)
From there, we drove him to a birthday party where he met his mom … and we drove home … whew! two tired and happy grandparents.
I have only two photos to sum up the rest of our weekend. Saturday Night Snacks are back!
Yesterday afternoon I finally finished watching the latest Espace Tricot podcast … and finished the first sleeve on Blaer.
I fell asleep on the sofa about 8 o’clock last night … thankfully, that was just what I needed to feel rested and ready to tackle the week.
Let’s make it a good one!
