What a weekend! We are finally getting some nice weather around here and I could not be happier! I am wearing a sundress and sandals today!!!!! Saturday was spent in the usual way. Housework in the morning and some errands in the afternoon. An easy dinner and some CSI on the couch with my love and an early bed time rounded out the night.
Sunday started out great. We relaxed and chatted in bed for awhile in the morning and then got up and jumped right into our to do list. We got a few things done before a friend came over for brunch. After a delicious brunch we ran to Home Depot for supplies to build a garden bed and stopped at Wegmans for a few groceries. When we got home, Tiff unlocked the door and hung her keys on the hook inside. I carried in groceries and set the groceries and my purse down so I could go help her haul stuff to the backyard. On my way out, I pulled the door shut, not realizing it was locked. We spent all afternoon and most of the evening locked out of the house with our groceries, my phone, our wallets and our keys inside. My mama lost the extra key I gave her and we were not able to get in touch with the landlords all day. We did finally get in but it was not a fun (or cheap) experience. We have a new plan for the extra key in place now.
Needless to say, we did not get much done after that. We were still able to cook out on our new grill so the day wasn’t a total loss. Lots of plans for the backyard and a few indoor projects were pushed back to next weekend. Luckily the nice weather should be sticking around.
My partner is taking a break from working a second job since the overtime has been steady at her primary job. This means she will be home in the evenings and can pitch in a little more with meal prep during the week. She is not quite as adventurous as I am in the kitchen, but is always willing to try and learn new things. Our meal plans might seem a little different since she will be cooking more, but they will still be built around real food.
