Today is our first Saturday as empty nesters. It’s still early, only 9:05 am here but it’s started out pretty good.
We tidied up the patio and had a lovely breakfast out there but then it got hot and we came inside to finish our tea and coffee. I crocheted for a bit. DD needed some coasters. We bought some while we were there but the condensation pooled on top of them and made a mess so I have begun to crochet a few for her. They aren’t very traditional but neither is she.
DH and I have been eating at home since we got back from moving DD. Well, mostly. At least for dinner. We are terrible about going out to eat, especially after a rough day and our waistlines are showing it so… I have planned our meals for the next few days and I’m feeling pretty good about it. I think I’ve already even dropped a pound or two. New diet. EAT AT HOME!! I’ll keep you updated on how it works. lol
I’ve been throwing myself into my church work to keep myself busy. I have sermons planned through the rest of the year (I’m usually a week to week gal) and special activities to go with some of them. It’s pretty exciting and also exhausting.
But today, I think I’ll take a break and enjoy working on some Christmas projects I have in the works and maybe tidy up the house a bit. Mainly relax and enjoy the quiet time and alone time with DH.
