A normal weekend – that is what I wished for and I’d say that was exactly what I got!
FriYAY Happy Hour made me very happy – we sat outside, and it was so lovely! And, can I just say that my new favorite drink might be a gin martini… that Bombay Sapphire is amazing stuff!
Saturday was full – so full! A trip to Costco, some yard work, and I then I decided to reorganized my “craft room” to accommodate sewing machines being out all.the.time! It took all afternoon and a good chunk of the evening. It just needs a few odds and ends put away, which I hope to finish up today. Fortunately, dinner was super simple! Fresh asparagus and some amazing shrimp we picked up from our Costco trip – Steve grilled all of it and it was just so delicious.
My son sent a picture of the dog he is fostering – Sam (the feet, in case you did not know, lol) and Bowser (on the left) feel completely at home with Shakespeare (who Sam is calling Shake) – or maybe it is Shake that feels completely at home with them. I have my fingers crossed that I will soon have a new grand-dog to love!
Sunday morning, Steve did some more yard work – and really – all the heaving lifting yard work! He moved our fire pit to its new home…which allowed for the patio heater to move to its new place. We just have a few final things to finish up and the summer living areas will be all set. The temps got a bit warm and muggy on Sunday, so we cranked on the AC – which thankfully is now fully operational!
We closed out the weekend with a simple Sunday Happy Hour (inside this time and with AC!) in preparation for the GoT finale… no spoilers here, so I can’t tell you if those eight questions were answered! Sorry!! However, I will say that I was very happy with how the series ended.
My weekend hope that remains unfulfilled was to finish that blasted shawl, but I barely knit a stitch all weekend! However, I am working at the PA election tomorrow, which is a local primary election so sadly, it should not be too busy so I am hopeful to finish it then!
How was your weekend? I hope it was awesome!
What fun to have a fire pit! It was muggy here on Friday but really liked very the rest of the weekend. Any sewing?
I think you got your AC fixed just in the nick of time. This weekend really did feel like summer!
Sounds like the perfect kind of weekend to me! I’m seeing a lot of people who were unhappy with how GOT ended but I have to say I feel okay about it.
That sky is perfect and the dogs are wonderful – fingers crossed that Shake can be welcomed into the family! I haven’t watched any GoT, so now that it’s done, maybe it’s time for me to start!
Looks like a great back-to-normal weekend, Kat. Productive, too! I’m not a GoT person, so I’m just glad it’s done so it can stop being “news.” 😀
I’m SO envious of your warm weekend! We had rain, hail, snow in the higher elevations, which means it was parka weather! More to come! drat You got a lot done and I’m envious of that, too!
oh my – those dogs 🙂 🙂
also – I love your grass. and not only because it’s green.
oh, and also the gin martini (nectar!)
glad you had a great weekend!!
isn’t that bit of outsideness wonderful? It was a great weekend for us as well. I hope your wish comes true for a new grand dog 🙂
I’ve been indulging in the gin martini also. 🙂 I just bought a new to me brand the other day in celebration of Dan arriving Friday. He’s a gin guy too! Looks like a perfect weekend to me Kat!
