Happy Last Sunday in September! I just found out I’ll be working in the morning so I’m sitting here working on my post. And wondering why my weekend ran away in such a hurry.
It was busy but I still wish it could have stayed a bit longer. Here’s a brief recap of our weekend:
The high school moved the Friday night football games to Thursday out of weather concerns, made for a long day for me (worked til 6 then off to cheer on my favorite marching band on the field, football team as well). After work Friday, the rain came late so I had time to mow the front yard. Much needed.
Saturday, we spent the entire day on the road and at a marching band competition in southern Missouri. The predicted rain mostly held off and we only had to seek shelter from a brief downpour once and it happened after all the bands had their preliminary turns. Our band took home a well-deserved 3rd place trophy from the finals competition! We didn’t arrive home until close to 2 AM last night as we drove through some thunderstorms.
The lovely cat cried out her displeasure at being ignored bright and early at 5 AM this morning. Thankfully, I was able to back to bed until about 8 but my poor husband had to work most of today. The Chiefs game gave us enough of a rush that we didn’t need to celebrate national coffee day around here! We do get to celebrate another football win though. Hooray!
And now it’s time to plan the week ahead.
Rainbows are hard to photograph! It’s off to the left but there is a rainbow in the photo above (taken after the brief downpour on Saturday afternoon).
Summer isn’t leaving us without a fight. Highs in the upper 80’s until Wednesday. Then, fall gets to try again with highs in the upper 60’s. And always those chances of more rain on Wednesday & Thursday. So far it looks like we’ll get a nice football Friday evening.
On My Reading Pile
After finishing The Two Lila Bennetts by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, I haven’t picked up another book. Guess I better find one before J’s lesson tomorrow night.
On My TV
Still fascinated with the Mr. Robot series. Probably explains the lack of reading. Plus all the season premieres are starting. Watched The Goldbergs, Single Parents, and Modern Family. And tried out a couple new shows…probably not the best sign I can’t remember the names of them: the one about the little girl found by the plane crash & the one with the gal from How I Met Your Mother. I just watched the season premiere of God Friended Me and will watch Seal Team on Wednesday.
