The weekend was not quiet or relaxing but it was jammed packed with fun. I had a full house with both kids home. At any given time the tv was on and they were watching movies or playing vintage video games. The dishwasher was run daily and boy, I was knee deep in laundry. However, I was excited to do laundry because I'm breaking in a new washer. I wonder when the novelty will wear off?
Today, my daughter returns to her apartment to start the third year of law school which is also the last year of law school, she is ready to move on. One day the UPS truck appeared, everyone was quite excited-he's like Santa you know-and my daughter received a beautiful bouquet of lilies from her boyfriend. How lovely and I've enjoyed looking at them every day. Beside the bouquet is a photo of the greatest pup in the world, Zoe. I loved her so and still think about her-when she died in 2009 we quickly set about picking out another dog who wouldn't look like her, that dog is Frodo another greatest pup in the world.
Yesterday at church, there was an old man who attended Mass dressed all in white, when he received communion he wore a traveling backpack and carried a walking stick and a tattered loved holy bible. I wonder if I was a traveling man (well woman) what would I consider essential to put in that back pack? Sadly, I think I have too many "essential" belongings and feel that this man is closer to happiness by being free of possessions. Makes me ponder.
Over the weekend, my husband has built an antenna so we can receive the local channels for free in the house and make that move to cut the cord to the satellite company. This project has kept him quite busy and it's been entertaining to hear "hey, we got 10 channels" as he checks out each TV. Do you have cable or satellite? Or did you cut the cord??
You know very well there was knitting jammed into the weekend, more about that tomorrow :)
How was your weekend??
