Weekends


This weekend saw me choosing a new cell phone (finally) and watching my husband not choose one.  He's like that and it's amusing.  We picked up Chinese food and donuts which has now lead to a healthy Sunday dinner to promote detoxing of the salt.  I think just looking at Chinese food can add 6 lbs.  You know I firmly believe donuts are inherently good for you-they come in the colors of fruit??

Saturday was a lazy day.    I knit, read, puzzled and did almost nothing.  It was fun.  Have you been hearing the birds singing early in the morning?  I've been enjoying that when Frodo and I get the newspaper.  After the silence of winter, their singing is quite noticeable.  We resumed watching some Star Trek episodes, season one from the original series, always entertaining that my husband knows each and every single episode.

Today we went to church, I caught up on some correspondence with friends via snail mail, paid bills, and am running some laundry.  Later I'll chat with one or two of the kids. In the evening I'll be knitting.

How was your weekend?

  2. Sounds like the perfect weekend! We haven't had Chinese since New Year's Eve. My husband has been begging for it ever since. I think that sounds good for next weekend! We got donuts this morning too! Our tradition after Sunday Mass each week! (That's how we get Ree to sit semi quietly during Mass, with the promise of donuts!) I too have noticed the birds just in the past few days. I am SO READY for spring!

  3. Sounds like you had a great weekend so far. I do love Chinese food, but I seem to get heartburn every time we eat it. :-( I can't tell my kids how you think about donuts, otherwise they'll start asking for them all the time... ;-)

  5. My daughter loves Chinese food, but we often try to steer from it due to the saltiness. Must drink loads of water. Not noticing as many birds, but it may be because we are very citified right now.

  6. Sounds like a lovely weekend! I recently got a new phone too and I am still getting to know it. And snail mail! Yes! I always think it's an artform that must be preserved and revived :)

    Have a lovely week ahead.

  9. Somehow that picture of the beautiful stationery with fun pens gave me the urge to carefully pen a thank you note or something, on real paper, with real pens, not email! :)

  12. We've been hearing birds here, too! A sure sign that spring is coming. I do love the winter, but right around now, every year, I start to crave warm weather. I think it's right around the corner… xo

  14. I've also noticed the birds singing the other day, I think they're a little confused though. Can't wait for the time when they wake me up with their singing again, it's such a beautiful start to the day.

  16. That sounds like absolutely the best kind of weekend, kinda productive but also pretty relaxed.

    Mine? Chaotic! Which sadly is the way it is here just now.

  17. I'm glad there's someone else out there who still loves old fashioned mail. I was starting to wondering if I was the only one....
