We’ve had a good weekend!
Friday evening after Stephen got home we played cards with my parents, which is our normal Friday night routine. On Saturday, Stephen’s mom took Christopher to church with her and Stephen and I had some time alone at the house to work on homework. Later in the day I went to work in my flower bed, doing some redesigning. I ended up digging up an old Azalea stump that was in a weird spot and not really producing any new growth, anyway. I am SO excited because the Azaleas that I planted last summer are about to burst with beautiful pink blooms.
Yesterday afternoon we went to dinner with my parents and my aunt Gloria, my cousin Tonya, and Tonya’s two boys. They were visiting from Texas for the day and had spent most of the day riding 4-wheelers at Wolf Pen Gap.
Last night, Stephen and I watched The Other Guys. If you haven’t seen it, DON’T. It was a waste of two hours of my life that I will never get back. Halfway through it, I took my laptop over to the couch and caught up on Facebook, blogs, Twitter, and also looked up floor plans for my eventual dream home. :)
This morning, Stevo got up with Christopher and let me sleep in WAAAY too late. Ha! It was SO nice. We hung around the house and played some Wii (Mario Brothers, anyone?) and around 12:30 headed over to Stephen’s mom’s house to work on her backyard. We got SO much accomplished but there’s still a lot of work to do. I planted a TON of plants. Dahlias, Daylilies, Purple Echinacea, Black-eyed Susans, Foxgloves… and I’m sure a few other things that I can’t recall right now. Stephen broke out the Rototiller and prepared a spot for her summer garden. We still have a TON of stuff left to do to her yard… it’s just slow-going right now with school and Stephen’s job. I’m really looking forward to summer break! (I’m not going to take summer classes the first summer session, so I’ll get about 5 or 6 weeks off this summer! Although – it’s not by my choice. Henderson just isn’t offering any classes I need during the first summer session! I would choose summer classes over fall classes any day of the year!)
We got cleaned up from playing in the dirt (and sand, if your name was Christopher) and headed to dinner at Richie and Gina’s house. Gina made spinach and mushroom enchiladas, beans, corn, and guacamole and OH MY GOODNESS it was all SOOO yummy! We had to roll ourselves to the car.
All in all -- a really great weekend! Unfortunately, tomorrow is Monday and Stephen and I have to start our school week a day early and drive to Arkadelphia early tomorrow morning to take care of some school business. Five weeks till Summer Break!
