Around here this weekend

Howdy, friends.
So, you know how I celebrated my birthday last Thursday? Well, the universe gifted me with a little food poisoning that hit me around 11:00 that night. Instead of going to work on Friday, I slept the entire day, missed a performance I was looking forward to with Carrie and some friends on Friday night, and I continued to sleep until Saturday morning. Bam. Total loss of a whole darn day.
 
I was really happy that my Saturday morning yoga class was a guided mediation, which meant all I had to do was lay there and relax. It was awesome!
 
Man, Whiskers was all over me this weekend. He takes up a lot of space on my sewing table! I had to scoot him aside on Saturday afternoon while I worked on a little sewing project.

We don't see our turtles a whole lot during the week because they are usually out and about during the day while we're at work. So it's always fun on the weekend to glance out into the atrium and see them roaming. That's Rex in the photo above, hanging out under the deer antler - his favorite spot.

And baby Casper in the next photo. Note the little sunflower sprout on the left... I have some rocks propped by it to keep it from being plowed down by Rexy. The other three sprouts are history, but this one is still standing. I figure if I can protect it for a while it will eventually be large enough that Rex will walk around it rather than over it.

The window sill above our kitchen sink... I think I'm turning into my Grandma Bessie...

Carrie and I met for lunch/pedicures/shopping yesterday afternoon, and then I handed her off to Doug. They spent a little time at the Apple store and Doug finally graduated to an iPhone. It's an understatement to say it's a step up from his former phone! Carrie helped him get everything set up and gave him lessons on the main points of interest. I seriously doubt he'll be as obsessed with the device as Carrie and I are (maybe?), but this next photo tugs at my heart just a little - the look on Lucky's face...

Oh yeah, we also did a bunch of yard work yesterday morning in preparation for an upcoming graduation party that's happening around here next week (!!!). And I just looked at the calendar and realized that Mother's Day is this weekend and I've yet to put something together for my sweet grandma. Better get with it...

Wishing you a week filled with wonderful blessings.

I didn't know you were sick!!! You were emailing me from your SICK BED?!

Oooh, so sorry you had food poisoning - not a nice way to celebrate your birthday at all. Love Lucky's look - it's like hey I'm here put that thing down. Congrats and best wishes to Carrie in her new job.

That was one awful way to spend a birthday, but it sounds like the weekend perked up! Tracy resisted the iPhone for several years, but he was quickly more obsessed with it than I am---so watch out! Congrats to Carrie!

That sounds miserable and hope you are better now and able to enjoy and get on with the interesting things this week is going to bring. oh, poor Lucky! She looks as if she feels she has been betrayed by a New Favourite Thing :(.

I'm sad you felt unwell Deb, especially on your birthday weekend. I love Lucky's eyes, in that photo!

Deb, food poisoning is the worst! And to have it spoil your birthday celebration is even worse! I love the look on Lucky's face. It's like he is saying "don't forget me now that you have a new toy!" It's funny how animals can be so perceptive.

What a shame that you were poorly, what a good job it came late at night and not early morning.
Love that photo of Lucky - he's saying ' that's enough of playing with that phone, put it down and notice ME'

Ruth said...

So sorry to hear you've been poorly ~ am sending you a huge hug! x

Audrey said...

Oh no, Deb, I'm so sorry to hear you had food poisoning!!! What an awful way to finish up your birthday week. I still love that photo of Lucky....clearly NOT a fan of the new phone. Ha ha. And I can't wait to see all the fun details of the grad party. XOXO
