On Friday night, we invited Brian's aunt and uncle over for dinner. So, this left me cooking all of Thursday evening and Friday afternoon again this week (not that I'm complaining--I'm just saying). Our dishwasher got quite a workout this weekend. Anyway, we had a nice visit--I always enjoy talking to the two of them.
For not having any plans, Saturday turned out to be pretty busy. I got up, started washing clothes, and then we ran out to Somerset to check out a farmer's market they have at the Georgian Place. Brian's boss's in-laws have a stand there so we bought some of their stuff (lamb, chicken, and eggs). I'm looking forward to trying everything--especially the lamb. It's all organic and whatnot, so it was a bit pricey, but I like supporting local farmers when I can. And, I prefer that my meat isn't full of hormones and antibiotics. Yech.
After we got home, Brian took Jake to get a haircut and I ran to Toys R Us to buy a gift for one of Jake's friends who was having a birthday party that afternoon. When we all got back home, we had lunch, I continued to wash clothes, and then Brian ran Jake to the party while I baked communion bread for a special service they were having today at our church. While Jake was at his party, Brian did some computer work, I took a nap, and then made up the grocery list. After we picked Jake up, we went grocery shopping, and then made supper.
In the evening, I helped Jake make cards for my dad's, mom's, and grandmother's birthday party, which we went to today. I also put away all of the clothes I washed throughout the day, read a packet of information that Jake's school sent, and did some general straightening up. It rained all evening, so I never got to work outside yesterday, but I did manage to walk the dogs between rain showers.
As I mentioned, we had a bunch of birthdays in my family recently. They were all celebrated at my parent's house today where my mom cooked a delicious dinner. I went outside after we got home and finished cleaning all of the garlic that's been curing in Brian's shop for the past couple of weeks. I then came in and made us some sandwiches for supper, ordered some garlic to plant in the fall, started blogging, walked the dogs, and finished blogging. So, here I am, and it's almost 9pm--time to watch HBO.
