I had a lovely relaxing weekend. I went to netball with Brianna on Saturday morning. When we got home I suggested we go and catch a movie. We decided to see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past starring Jennifer Garner and Matthew McConaughey. It was okay but I really didn't like McConaughey's character - a sleazy guy trying to sleep with anything that breathed! The past, present and future catch up with him but it all turns out in the end. Thank goodness, I might have had trouble sleeping otherwise! We were home by 7.10pm and Gus had dinner on the go.

On Sunday, I watched a couple of DVD's at my leisure ( Suddenly 30 and Shall We Dance (ooh, I do love Richard Gere!) In between the films, I cross-stitched and have realised that my eyesight has really deteriorated quite a bit! I plodded along and yes, I still enjoy it. I will get new glasses in a few weeks time - got to get my girls to help me pick out new frames.

After lunch, Bri and I visited my mother. I cleaned out her air conditioning filters and also the exhaust fan cover over the shower. Then we took a quick trip out to the cemetery to put flowers on Dad's grave. She had a pot of cute, tiny yellow roses which will get watered by the rain and hopefully will last a few months. Then it was home for a cup of tea and chat then back home. Gus finally got the lawns mowed after about 4 weeks growth. All the mushrooms/toadstools are gone now - it was starting to look like a fairy city.

Dinner was prepared by Gus (aren't I lucky) - Butter sage chicken. Yummy!
*
I hope to have many more quiet weekends like this one now that the cold weather has set in.

  1. I used to literally stay up all night cross stitching. A year or so ago, I wondered why it had been so long since I had cross stitched, so I started a little project. It wasn't long before I realised, oh yeah, now I remember. I can't see anymore!

    I should give it another try now that I've got new prescription. :)

  2. Yes, my sight has changed over the years. I wear glasses because I am short sighted (need glasses for distance). I used to be able to wear the glasses for driving and also I could leave them on to do close work and reading. But now I have to take them off to do close work like cross-stitch and for reading. Pain in the butt!
