After the weekend: Family.

What a fun weekend! On Saturday we went slept in. Then later in the afternoon we drove 20 minutes away, to the nearest Walmart, to buy The Force Awakens, since it is out on dvd. After we just walked around and looked at the fishies (Adri's favorite). 
Saturday night a bunch of the family came over for poker night (Joe is back in town for the week), and we all stayed up nice and late, including Posie, who lasted until 10:45!

On Sunday we did our usual morning grocery shopping and I made our usual afternoon pizza (pepperoni!). Later in the day Posie and I drove up to Wesleytown to have dinner at mom and dad's (Joe, Julia and Stan Lee were up there too). 

Now it's Monday! Yesterday I got all the laundry washed, and the house deep cleaned. Meaning I really don't have much housework that has to be done today (yay!). Sooo, maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to work some more on Posie's baby blanket (I'm still determined to have that finished by the end of this week!).

btw, I just hit delete on over 1000 pictures on my camera card (don't worry, I have them backed up in two separate places!) Please tell me I'm not the only one who has a moment of panic when they do that though, please? It's just that minute when you hit "delete" and everything is GONE. Ha. I really hate that.

I really want to start using more essential oils...anyone out there experienced with using them? 
Also, I found out the other day that MaryJane (Butters) has TWO new books that I haven't read yet!
 I ordered them in from the library, pronto.

Littlest sis reads to Posie.

Kisses and sunshine, on our way to the grocery store.

Yesterday was National Sibling Day, so of course that called for a picture of of all ten of us. Bad news is, I am 99.9% sure that we don't have a current picture of all of us
So, this had to do.

Anyway, back to Monday. And rain. And knitting. And coffee. Always coffee.

Have a lovely first-day-of-the-week!
