Weekend Report

Since we have today off, it's still considered the weekend, but so much has been checked off my list, I thought I'd report the "so far" stuff.

Saturday I ran in a 5K and drh ran, too. He is a biker and does elliptical, so not totally conditioned for running (which affected him yesterday.) But we had fun, and it was a beautiful day, and I got another medal! Third in age group. A&M&Baby G walked the course with the stroller. After the race, we went to their house and played with the baby and fixed lunch. M's parents and grandma joined us for lunch and the afternoon. We all had a nice visit. We got home later than we'd planned, and the evening consisted of a long nap and early bed time.
Have you ever seen a Bumbo seat? That's what the baby is sitting in above. They're new since I had babies (so is practically everything else - HA), and it is a fun seat for babies. They are securely held, but can stretch and turn and kind of bounce in it. She likes it.

Sunday after church we cleaned the house. It probably helped that it was kind of gloomy and threatening to drizzle most of the day. We dusted, vacuumed, tidied up, polished mirrors, changed sheets, washed linens and other laundry, washed the kitchen and front hall floors, put away things, and sorted out paperwork piles. Then I caught up on writing some notes to friends, and some volunteer paperwork I'd been putting off too long, and updated the church website - it took me most of the evening, but all is caught up now! Drh worked on some computer jobs, practiced the guitar, and then went to town and got a pizza for our supper.

Today I already got the checkbook reconciled, the bed made, the dishwasher going. Now for folding laundry and some closet straightening. Later we're going to take a motorcycle ride for lunch. I'm still reserving time for sewing later today!

What a nice weekend! I'm always amazed at how much you are able to accomplish on your weekends.

That baby seat is really cute! I didn't have one for any of my babies (even though my youngest is only 21 months old) but I'm sure it would have come in handy. They were always happiest when they were sitting up.
