Again I find myself being a horrible Blogger. While I haven't been " Missing in Action " completely, I've been finding it more and more difficult to post these days.
I so admire those of you that post everyday or even just every week. I just seem to get so busy and then when I feel like posting, I don't feel as though I have anything important to post about! Such is the case today. Nothing really important but quite a lot has been going on around here.
We had a great Memorial Day weekend. Jake and I went to the theater to see " Dark Shadows "...
We really enjoyed the movie. Johnny Depp was excellent in the role as Barnabas Collins and the movie was done in true soap opera style. Very funny and enjoyable. It's been a few years since we've been to the theater together so it was like a real date !! Of coarse we ate lots of Popcorn and I had my Sno-Caps and Jake had his Chocolate covered Peanuts. We shared a giganto soda.
Sometimes you just have to splurge!!
After the movie we took a long walk ( Kate had the car) over to "Buffalo Wild Wings"...
We had never been there before. Did you know that you can get three free beer samples there? We didn't. So we had our samples, that was fun, and a couple of bottles with our wings. The wings are amazing!! We called Kate to have her come and meet us there. She had Mango Habenjero dipping sauce with her wings. It was very tasty but a bit too hot for this MaMa!! I stuck with my Blue Cheese sauce. It was all very delicious and we had a great time, just the three of us. Our other teen was at work that day.
Later that evening we grilled Ribs. I made baked potato wedges to go with the ribs. Salad too. All very good. The other teen came come that evening and we all had a great time outside just enjoying this awesomely wonderful weather we've been having.
This past weekend brought more happy, memorable, summer fun. We went to watch our granddaughter Sarah play ball. She is very serious about her game...
Thank Goodness her team won 28-29 as she was spending the night at our house that evening. She was so, so tired after that game !!
When we got her to our house and fed her, she perked up. Or it may have been after the milk shake Aunt Katie brought home for her !!
Another fun evening was had. The weather again was perfect. We sat outside and watched Sarah do all of her tumbling. I was amazed at how graceful she was. It was fun to watch.
When we went inside for the evening Sarah wanted grandma to braid her hair so it would be wavy in the morning. I used to braid Ginny and Katie's hair the same way.
It was a fun and busy day...
See what happens when you become a bad Blogger like me? You go on and on until people get tired of reading your post !!
I did something this week that I haven't done except when I've been in the hospital. I took a week off of work just so I can play in my yard and do things around the house.
I'm sitting in the the yard on the deck right now and it's just gorgeous outside. I've been out here since 6:00 a.m. Washed my car. Did a little shopping. Put some more yard ornaments out.
It's been almost the perfect week. The only thing missing is my husband. I really wish he were sitting with me right now.
I'm already looking forward to the weekend when he comes home again. I wonder what this weekend will bring?
I wonder if it will take me weeks to post again?!
Oh well such is life, see ya!!
