The past week has been a blur of activity. We left Saturday night for Texas and arrived there just before midnight. Sunday I helped my son in the kitchen preparing food for upwards to 30 people. The party turned out great and I got to see all but one of my TX grand children. Monday we just sat around and enjoyed each other's company. Watched a few movies and talked. Nice and relaxing. Tuesday we had most of the day to spend with the family. We even got to meet our Great Grand Son!! Pictures will be posted on this weekends blog post. We boarded a plane to head back to Arizona arriving home about 9:30 in the evening. It was very hard to leave knowing we will not see our son again for a year.
Yesterday (Wednesday) I managed to do 2 loads of laundry as well as make out a weeks worth of menus and sent the hubby to both Sam's Club and Costco. I also made a loaf of bread as I really am trying to stay away from store bought bread for a while. I have a fantastic bread machine and there is no reason not to be using it. Plus, I love adding flax and other healthy ingredients into the bread.
Last night hubby and I played trivia at our local sports bar. We got introduced to it a few weeks ago and are hooked. It is a fun time and gets us out and with lots of other folks. As soon as trivia was over hubby dropped me off at home and ran to the airport to pick up his sister. She is only in for a day but it s nice to have her here. I will be taking her for a hair appointment and shopping if she wants. We are going to go out to dinner tonight (Thursday) and then she will be leaving to go to a class reunion. A quick visit but nice to see her again.
Tomorrow will be grocery shopping and working on doing some alterations on the local Grand Daughters uniforms. Saturday is my birthday and I have planned a BBQ for both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday my son and his family will be here and on Sunday it will be my daughter and her husband. My hubby is doing the cooking so I will be able to sit back and enjoy the weekend.
There has not been much crafting done. I knit a bit on the Rose City Rollers socks on the plane and that is all I have done. Hopefully by next week I can get back into my regular schedule and start working on my projects again.
Until next time...............happy crafting.
