So Saturday I figured for all that work I was going to get some kind of treat and went for my first pedicure ever. An exiting dayhome family gave me a gift certificate for one at the beginning of summer and I kept putting it off thinking I'd be greebled out by it. But guess what? I went and I loved it. It was so relaxing. I was going to take pictures but I thought I'd freak out the young lady giving me the pedicure and I didn't want her to think I was some weirdo. I mean, who takes pictures of one getting their feet done. But I know you bloggers get it? You do, right? Hellooo? At any rate, I think I'm spoiled now. Better start saving my sheckles so I can get one at the beginning of summer next year.
Saturday afternoon Youngest Girl had to pick something up at the Christian book store. I knew I should have stayed in the car. I even said I'd be waiting in the car. So how on earth did I up in the store? And once in the store, I looked. I tried so hard not to. But how can one not look? Two books and some kind of Caribbean coffee later, which was yummy, I exited the store giving myself what for for going into the store in the first place. Where was my discipline? Where was my rock solid "no" when I needed it? Sigh. I just can't help myself. I'm weak, oh so weak, when it comes to books. But now this and this are going to be on my Fall Into Reading list. And shhh, don't tell, but it does make me happy.
Sunday we actually bbq'd. Hard to believe but it's so. The weather this year has been so weird I have hardly used the bbq at all. Usually I use it at least 3 or 4 times a week in the summer. We just had burgers. But burgers made extra delicious with my very own homegrown tomatoes on them. Were they ever good. Something about homegrown tomatoes just makes my mouth water thinking about them. The tasteless ones in the store just don't compare.
So that about sums up my greatly exciting weekend. Nothing earth shattering here. But it was nice to just hang around without having to be somewhere continuously all weekend. I like those once in awhile.
How was your second last weekend of the summer?
