It feels late – even for me! – to be writing about the weekend when it will be Wednesday before many of you read this. But this Tuesday-as-Monday has been more like a Monday, except without my usual knitting with friends in the afternoon and with a bunch of to-do’s for this weekend’s Women’s Ministry leadership team (still without a Vice Moderator) kickoff meeting. It’s honestly not very often that I cross things off my list on
MondayTuesday, so at least that feels good!
As does looking back at the weekend:
We FaceTimed with our favorite little guys more than once. This is from Friday night’s “goodbye”. Sam is blowing a kiss and Charlie is getting ready to make a bubble (and next time I see him I’m going to have to ask what the bubble has to do with goodbyes…because now we can’t remember).
Our weather forecast turned out to be wrong a lot – in that it did not rain for 96 straight hours and we saw some sun. Marc played three rounds of golf and I went to the lake three times – two times running and once walking. Sunday morning, I snapped that photo of the flag at the lake. It was a good reminder of why Monday was a holiday.
Running twice was a big deal. I haven’t made two back-to-back runs (even short three-mile ones) in a couple of years. I’m sure the second one was better because I got new shoes!
That stack of books middle bottom is my “next up” pile. The bottom one and top two are not library books, but still – I need practice managing my hold queue! The good news is that the loans aren’t due until June 23 and I’m actually thinking I might be able to read them all.
And finally, lower right, a three-day weekend means two two snack nights! and (not pictured) pork tacos. Marc is still the pro with our Instant Pot – we had a pork loin in the freezer (which he thawed) and then “slow” cooked it in about an hour. I added the guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. This is definitely going on our repeat menu and I’ll take photos and share the recipe next time!
I hope your week is off to a good start!
