Some Scenes From The Weekend...
a definite weekend highpoint -- breakfast on the back patio while flipping through undecorate...
I have to say...it was a little bit of an odd weekend. Things started out on a major upswing, as we got to spend Friday evening sharing a meal and discussing (the brilliant, change-inducing) To Kill a Mockingbird with some of our closest friends for our bookclub. That book...wow. Reading it as an adult (and as a mother) is a completely different experience than reading it (as I did the first time) as a junior high student. Atticus Finch is just an amazing and beautiful parent. I think you could write an entire parenting book based on how he interacted with Jem and Scout. Truly.
So definitely a good start, but then the rest of the weekend was spent fighting off low-level crud -- headcold, stomachache, general malaise... Honestly I'm not sure if it was mental or physical or some of both, but I ended up telling Bryan and the girls I was going to "rest" on the couch for a few minutes on Saturday only to open my eyes a full two hours later after taking what was (for me) an epic nap. I am not a napper friends. Even in my most sleep-deprived, post-baby, new-mom state I couldn't nap to save my life, so Saturday's siesta was huge.
By Sunday afternoon I was feeling a little better. I seemed to be shaking it off. Of course it didn't hurt that (after two excellent meals out + lovely flowers and notes from B and the girlies) we discovered a mother and baby dove sitting in their nest tucked into a corner of our fence.
