I know I've been gone for a while. It's been a busy, busy weekend and I haven't had anything that was really fun!

There was a time in my life when I was nervous about entertaining. Now, I realize, it doesn't have new or interesting to report. We had friends over for dinner and drinks on Saturday evening and to be anything big and fancy to be fun and nice. And, most people don't care if the meal isn't perfect... it's a free meal, right? And, they get waited on too! We've done several grilling out dinner parties this Spring and Summer, maybe we'll be invited to a few in return? I hope so!

Anyway, I really don't have anything of note to report. We did have a neat early evening shower and thunderstorm. I don't know why, but it made me feel so peaceful. Knowing we were safe in our house and hearing the rain pat on the roof. Our new den is such a great place to relax.

I have a new front door coming and a new screen door (the kind with the retractable screen inside the frame). The front door will be painted red and we have a new lock hand set for it.

At this point, it just needs to be picked up and installed. I'll try to get a picture of that later. I'm not sure when it will be complete.

See the loveseat to your left? That's my laptop on its own cushion. That's where I blog every night or every so often when I get to it these days. Aren't you happy to know that? I always have my glass of Chardonnay nearby so I can feel like Hemingway or something. (just kidding - I don't think he drank wine, did he?)

See the black bean bag chair in front of the Big Ass TV? The kids like to fight over it, even though Buddy insists that it is ONLY HIS. The funniest thing is that it can be unoccupied for hours, but once someone sits their tush on it, the other kid wants it too.

I'm also feeling content today because I was able to start a book I bought not too long ago. It's "Little Earthquakes" by Jennifer Weiner (I know it's GOT to be pronounced whiner). At least I hope it is. I've read several of her other books and she's a fun writer. Chick lit, but hey, at least I'm reading again. It's just so hard to find the time with a small baby, ya know?

I hope you all had awesome weekends like mine! Same blog time, same blog channel.

  1. I want that rug. I could so live in your house.

    At least Ms. Weiner's first name isn't Anita.
