This Weekend, I . . .

Keys to the Cottage

So, my friend Becky over at Keys To the Cottage is starting a new Monday meme called, This Weekend, I . . .

It sounds like fun and if you want to join in with us just go here and grab her really cool button (that she made all by herself!) and let us all know what you did this weekend. Just short little blurbs - keeping it really simple.

So here goes.

This Weekend, I. . . .

Planted more flowers - even though I said I was done.

Cut some peonies and bleeding hearts for my kitchen window.

Ate breakfast with our kids on the patio Saturday morning.

Tried a new recipe. It was delicious. And one I will definitely be making again.

Sat in a hot tub with a bunch of girlfriends sharing birth stories - you know . . . girl talk.

Played with these guys. They are just too fun.

Wondered if it is EVER going to stop raining.

Enjoyed our Sunday School lesson - gave me much to think about.

Went to a Barn Sale and made a very unplanned purchase. But I was made an offer I couldn't refuse. (I'll share more later this week.)

Went to a graduation party for a young man in our church.

Kept thinking I should clean my pond filters - but never did get around to it.

Did 6 loads of laundry to be ready for the week.

Stayed up too late.

Finally figured out that all the news coverage of the oil spill is saying THAD Allen - not FAT Allen. I'm so glad his name is not Fat. LOL

How about you? What did you do this weekend?

Woohoo! I love your list. Thanks for playing. Blackberries ... yum. We had them in our back yard in FL but not here. I love blackberries. And did you know that the Little Tykes car is the best selling car in a America? I love that little trivia fact.

Great list Robin! Sounds like a perfect weekend to me, except the pond filters that are NOT GOING TO CLEAN THEMSELVES you know :)

This is a great list! I'm totally envious of the Barn Sale. How fun that would be! Loved Becky's trivia about the Little Tykes car. The peonies are beautiful, breakfast on the patio is summertime indeed.

Have a great week, Robin!

Can one ever really be done planting flowers? I think not. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Hey Robin~
Thanks for the visit!
I love planting flowers ~ and peony's are one of my favorite flowers!
We are going through "The Truth Project" in our Sunday School Class. It is so awesome!

Wow..seems like you packed a lot in! Good stuff..
This weekend I went downtown to set up for Dare Day. Sat in the blistering heat until 6 PM and sold $1200.00 worth of Haitian Beach Glass necklaces,earrings and pendents to raise $ for relief effots. WORTH the heat!
Other notable things: watched the grandbabies and went swimming in the ocean in spite of the fact that the water temp. was 59 degrees!!!!brrrrrrrrrr
And started to plan my trip to Haiti next month!!

Sounds like you had a great weekend!! Mine was pretty casual...I love those times when you can do absolutely nothing (: Took a few rides in the country to breathe in the fresh air and just enjoyed the relaxing.

So enjoyed reading this - your name switch cracked me up - sounds like something my hubby would do. I'm picking blackberries tomorrow with Sarah and the kiddos and am already looking forward to blackberry cobbler this winter in front of a fire. Coveting your peonies just a bit too.
