my nice weekend...

well now, our rainy weekend turned into a weekend filled with nothing but beautiful blue skies.  It was brisk, but perfect walking weather and I definitely took advantage of that. 


Hung out at the assisted living with a great friend Roz that lives there. We were chatting about our friend Norma that passed away last week. Roz and Norma were joined at the hip, so to speak - so we were celebrating Norma's amazing life and I'm so glad that they had each other - they were so cute together, always looking out for each other and bantering back and forth.  Aren't good friends the bee's knees?


Went for a nice dinner out with my daughter Steff and her guy Tyler.  We had a relaxing meal with great conversation and a lovely chocolate torte with strawberries !



Watched Letters to Juliet again.  I just love Vanessa Redgrave and the beautiful Italian scenery!



Wrestled with my sprinkler system that would not turn off, even after I unplugged it.  I was wet, muddy, had the tools out trying to just disconnect it and my friend Sally came over and showed me a little lever I had not seen to turn off - go figure....We had a good laugh !



Had a nice, lazy morning hanging out with my guy and that turned into a nice relaxing afternoon reading - in between dealing with my sprinklers....


I hope you had a nice weekend, friends...  How did you spend it?

xxoo

That does sound like a lovely weekend. You must be having some warm weather down south - sprinklers already? We've been chilly up here!

Friday and Saturday were full of household chore type stuff: cleaned out the garage, cooked up a storm, unpacked from a trip, laundry, and the husband re-designed our chickens' area.
Sunday we had a family picnic with my stepdaughter at Benziger winery. It was a gorgeous day. And we bought some close out wine on deep discount. Yay!

I am so glad the sun came out for you Cathi ~ sounds like the perfect week-end to me ~ sprinkler and all! I ran errands and cleaned on Saturday ~ danced, sang and laughed a LOT on Saturday night and recuperated on Sunday. Have a great week. xo

Oh my goodness! I watch Letters to Juliet about 3 times a month. My eyes water everytime she sees her Lorenzo in the vineyard. Oh their eyes!!! Melts my heart...
