scenes from the weekend
How was your weekend? We had a very dreamy, stay at home weekend. I forced myself to do some chores and cleaning too, but there were many dreamy parts. Dreamy highlights: my very favorite thing was when we sat down to dinner on Saturday night and Rainer let out a contented sigh and said, "I love it when it's dinnertime." Then Dieter chimed in and agreed he loves dinner. Oh my heart! We had a lovely afternoon on Saturday. I went to a 1.5 hour yoga class then read my book by the pool and later Ken and the boys joined me there and we spent most of the afternoon swimming and cooling off and I read a lot too. Very fun and just my idea of a relaxing weekend. Also Saturday--in the evening we got ice cream downtown and walked to the park and the boys played in the dusk.
On Sunday, Dieter helped me wash the car (it's usually Rainer who goes) and that was very sweet too. The boys watched Alice in Wonderland (classic Disney version) on Netflix Instant while I worked in the kitchen. I was successful in cleaning out the pantry. We did not make it to Santa Barbara that day, as I had hoped, but we will in the future. I have in mind taking a Sunday day trip every week, but that's not very realistic. Maybe every other week is more like it.
I have in mind that each weekend is a study in how to do weekends. I can tweak and refine to my heart's content and apply what I've learned to the future. If you posted about your weekend too, please leave a link and I'll pop over! Happy Monday, everyone.
