Weekend wrap-up

This was a fun-filled, busy but relaxing weekend!

Friday night we didn't do much. J and I have both been battling horrible sinus/allergy infections and felt pretty bad, so we actually took a nap once we got home from work! NOTHING sounded good for supper, so we ended up with tomato soup and grilled cheese. YUM! It was soooo good, I ended up having two sandwiches :) We also made a late-night run into town for some ice cream and after a little reading, I called it an early night. 

I had to work Saturday morning :( Got home and took another nap (you would too if you had to get up at 5 a.m.!) then we watched some TV and I did a little cleaning. Since it was SO COLD outside (50s, but cold compared to what we've been having) I was able to coax J into helping me clean up the office. It's only fair, considering at least half, if not more, of the mess is his! Guys, I'm not kidding when I call it a mess — we were in there for three hours and filled up an entire trash bag! I was in a very trash-happy mood I suppose, ha! Later that night, we got cleaned up and went to a friend's house (they had a keg and had been bothering us to come) only to find they had left! So I happily told J to just take me home, where we watched movies in bed. After stopping for more ice cream, of course :)

There is a dogwood azalea festival in a nearby town, and Sunday was the last day. J and I went and had a lot of fun! Last year we went on Saturday night, but I definitely liked it better in the day. We bought a few plants to put on the side of the house, where what we transplanted last year died. There is a big arts/crafts fair, and we found a glider we LOVE for $65. They were all sold, but we plan to go to the man's shop to buy one soon. We also got to take advantage of yummy carnival food --- I had the best corn dog ever and nachos. 
This is the 5K race we were supposed to run, but since we've both been sick we didn't feel ready, so we just watched. It was crazy how fast some people can finish those things!

They're calling for a bunch of rain here this week, so we decided to do some yard work once we got home. J mowed while I tilled the garden spot and planted lettuce. 
Hopefully the sunshine returns soon so I can get the rest of it planted. I.Can't.Wait for fresh food out of my backyard again. 


  1. There's nothing like a grilled cheese sandwich when you're sick! It's my fav! Hope you're feeling better soon.

  2. Dude is it sinus infection or allergies??? I'm in Seattle and my allergies are going freaking nuts right now, it's soooo miserable!!!

  3. :( sorry youve been sick, hope you guys are feeling better soon!

  4. I'm sorry ya'll have been sick, get better soon. I love having simple dinner of tomato soup & gr cheese, they are the best!
