My weekend did not go as planned - and that is ok. I met up with friends on Saturday morning - at 7:30 - at a local coffee shop. It was beautiful outside so we sat on the patio and knitted for 2 hours. It was funny - none of us had coffee - but opted for bottles of ice cold water. It was a lovely relaxing morning with good conversation and lots of laughs.
My plan was to then go home and crank up the AC in our upstairs and give our bedroom a deep cleaning. But while I was out with friends I got a text from our oldest son asking what our plans were for the day. They had some bad news about one of their cars and were car shopping. They had found a mini van they were interested in but it's hard to talk to the dealer and test drive with two little ones along. The dealership was halfway between their house and ours so we met them there. Luckily the dealership had a play area and after taking the girls for a walk we settled in. There were so many people buying cars that day and only one finance person there that it took forever. But we were thrilled to change our plans and spend time with these two sweet girls. We were there more than 3 hours and they were angels.
Miss Avery was enthralled with the motorcycle display. She kept saying "Mimi - come on - let's go see the motorcycles. Here take my picture Mimi!" Oh that girl! She was so full of hugs and kisses all day. There is nothing like a little one throwing her arms around you and giving kisses. Wuv you Mimi! My heart melts.
After they bought their mini van - oh the joy of parenthood - we all headed off - they went home (to a house with a broken AC - another long story - when it rains it pours) and we went for a drive - the long way home. We stopped for dinner at a local restaurant which was just taken over by new management. A storm had rolled through bringing the temps way down. We sat out on their patio and had dinner. They had live music - a guy with a guitar who sang. He was really good. Nice ending to the day.
By the time we got home we were exhausted. The heat and humidity had taken a toll. We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the last of the nice cooler evening.
Sunday I went into work for a couple hours and then cleaned, did laundry and grocery shopping. Our bedroom never got its deep clean - but that is ok. We had to turn on the AC as it was so humid and settled in to watch the soccer game. My husband had met his brother for a late lunch so he wasn't hungry - meaning I didn't have to cook. I was happy to heat up a cup of soup. Then we watched The Monuments Men. We really liked it.
