Happy sigh. This last weekend looked a lot like the one before. except without the worry of Sara traveling.
We spent New Years Eve at home, with bananagrams, a nice dinner, a little Broadchurch, and in-bed-before-midnight. It can be fun to stay up to greet the year, but I prefer to do it the next morning, in my PJs, with a cup of coffee and my journal. We had a lazy New Years Day (ahem, and this part of the “we” was lazier than most … from my front row at the kitchen counter) full of football, reading, more games, and more Broadchurch.
and then it was the weekend! On Saturday, Sara and I played a very fun round robin with Katie and Karen. and on Sunday, we went to Katie’s for games and dinner. Sara and I introduced Katie to bananagrams last week and she’s embraced it! The kiddo version looks kid-like, but y’all – it’s hard to make words with so few letters! I had a lot more fun playing with Sam and just making cool patterns with the tiles. He’ll be making real words soon, though, I’m sure. He also loves chess. and dressing up like Darth Vader. Neither he nor his brother are too into smiling for the camera these days 😉
Also, Holly found her favorite Christmastide spot.
This week, we’re planning more Broadchurch (we are now in season 3), tennis, and bananagrams … and Sara and I are going to conquer the learning curve on our new phones.Gotta hand it to Apple – they’ve really nailed the Express process. We ordered them yesterday morning; Sara’s phone was ready for pickup yesterday afternoon, and I got mine today.
In between all that, I’m trying to catch up with y’all and this month’s bookclub and just-for-fun books. and I might even finish a pair of socks!
I hope 2021 is off to a positive start for you, as well!
