So, how was your weekend? Mine was lovely. I enjoyed getting back to Church (last week I had not felt well enough to attend), and the final summery day before a week of authentic April wet and chill set in. I wore a vintage style dress I made last year, but had not worn since, ’cause it wasn’t nursing friendly. Now I have a chance to wear it for a short while before I grow into maternity sizes!
I used a basic shirt-style dress and redesigned the bodice to have a boat neck collar. It’s very comfy and I wish I had more opportunity to wear it! Here’s my photographer, in his own spiffy outfit – a thrifted linen shirt I found last week.
We BBQed for lunch, then we all took a lovely Sunday afternoon nap. Then Daddy got the bikes out, we buckled the Boy into his ‘bike’, and peddled off. Our route brought us by my in-laws and we picked up a few more bikers – Dad, Elise, Isaiah, and Nathanael. A nice ride around Ovid, then we headed home for dinner.
I made strawberry shortcake for a treat. If you have never had strawberry shortcake as a complete meal, you really should try it! Here’s my recipe. I used strawberries from the freezer, and leftover homemade vanilla ice cream from my birthday. And don’t worry – mommy had a little protein-rich snack before this splurge. 🙂
I have a new blog to share with you – Michelle left a comment and I found her blog, When the World Was Asleep. She appears to be a wonderful artist and a good poet, too – you should see what she painted while most of us were asleep last week! She also has a neat post about how she longs for a ‘date life’. Go on over there and see what I’m talking about!
I have been doing a lot of good reading lately, and plan to do some posts on the books I’ve read this week. I have found Paperback Swap to be an excellent source for ‘purchasing’ books that are on my wish-list – all it costs me is the $2.25 shipping! If you have some books to clean off your bookshelf, register at Paperback Swap and join the fun!
