Weekend Rewind

Linking up!

Little Moments Like This

Saturday was the Moore's annual Labor Day BBQ.  I went over on Friday night when they put the hog (literally, an entire hog with certain parts missing) on the pit and the beans in the hole (in the ground).  Both were incredibly good.  What was also incredibly good?  A full Saturday with my friends!  In the morning I spent a bit of time with Zakiya and ran a few errands with Tiff before heading out to the farm for the day.  Saturday was wrapped up with a movie with Rebekah and Tiff.  I stayed awake for almost a third of it.  :)
Chicken coop!


New roommate, Tiffany.  I was on the tire swing for a while and my arms are still killing me 2 days later.  Pitiful.

My church didn't meet yesterday so were encouraged to visit elsewhere.  After visiting a new church (during which I texted my friend at work about how I was ruined because I had to get over assessing the signage and hospitality to first time visitors...ruined) I ran, and then went home and cleaned!  I had aspirations of going to visit a friend, but somewhere between finishing mopping and cleaning the shower every bit of motivation in my heart left.  I wrapped up the night reading & finishing a book and working on a project.

Haha, still considered the weekend!  I have a full to-do list right beside me and a ton of motivation to get it done, so this should be good.

weekly sampler, last week in august 2012 edition

This week!  This week I...

*Worked!  40 hours spent at work, and thankful for each of them.  I just love the people I get to work with!  We had birthday lunch on Tuesday at Last Resort that I had to miss, but the admin girls celebrated Cookie's birthday on Wednesday at Depalma's which was way fun.  And way good.  (Meatball sandwich with a cucumber/olive/tomato/onion salad on the side).

*Summer is almost over.  SUMMER IS ALMOST OVER.  Since Labor Day is around the corner I wore my white skirt and dress one more time.  I also, after wearing them all summer, managed to spill on each while wearing them.  I am lamenting a bit in heart that summer is almost over, but the temps in the 90s all week calmed my fears that it'll be cold soon.  

*I had 2 nights at home this week without any meetings or obligations (though I could have filled one of them if I had had transportation).  They were really needed!  On one of them I fell asleep at 8:15.  It was marvelous.  

*The car saga update:  my car is still at the doctor, and I've been blessed with the generosity of friends giving me rides and two friends even lending me their car (THANK YOU Brookie and Emily). I should have mine back Tuesday, which will launch me into getting little fixes on it done to get it ready to sell.  GULP.

*One of my besties came home from Africa.

Yes, there were tears, and yes, Dave at work may have been deafened with the screetching that went on upon being reunited.  Thank You, Lord!
