Well, here we are – another Monday! Hope everyone had a nice weekend! Here’s what I was up to:
Accomplished on Friday:
- Grocery shopping
- Made dinner
Here’s where the half-mowed yard comes into play.
Normally on Friday nights, we go out to eat. But I had some tilapia and risotto that I had planned on making for dinner, so, after grocery shopping, I came home and got everything started. Naturally, we ate a little later than normal, but no worries, because we ended up getting some…ahem…dinner entertainment.
We chose to eat dinner on the couch (which we don’t do very often, but it was late and we were wanting to watch a movie). All of a sudden, as we’re sitting there eating and watching TV, movement in our backyard caught my eye, and I looked up, just in time to see our across-the-street neighbor on his riding lawn mower – MOWING OUR YARD.
I glanced at my hubby, who didn’t see the guy at first, and then I finally asked him what was up. He had no clue, either.
Now, mind you, this is the same neighbor who came over (across the street) and edged part of our yard to show my husband how to do it properly. He went on about how long it would take, but that it needed to be done! My husband responded by calling a friend of ours who owns a lawn care service, and paid HIM to come by and edge everything.
And NOW this guy was in our yard. Mowing.
But the crazy thing was…he quit. He mowed a few rows…and then went back across the street, put away his mower and went inside his house.
We sat on the couch, trying to figure out what had just happened.
And can I just interject here that my husband is pretty particular about “his” yard? Needless to say, he was a little frustrated. Anyone ever had anything like this happen before? We’re pondering how to approach the situation. I mean, we have to live across the street from this guy, you know!
So my poor husband had to get up early on Saturday morning and finish the yard mowing. Even though he had JUST MOWED on Monday. He was not a happy camper!
Anyhoo…just a Friday night at OUR house! Ha!
Accomplished on Saturday:
- Slept in!
- 3 hours of work here on the blog! (Did you notice?)
- Awesome birthday dinner with family and friends (my hubby totally surprised me – I was pretty impressed!) And I got a new toy! What is it, you ask?
A KitchenAid mixer! Wohoo!!! And it’s the perfect blue to match my kitchen!!!
I’ve been wanting one of these since before we got married, but they are NOT cheap, and I refused to put it on our wedding registry! (Some things just seemed like too much to ask for, ya know?) Sooo…I finally got it! And I can’t wait to try it out!
Accomplished on Sunday:
- Sound check, Sunday School, choir and church
- Took a nap!
- Worked on my decor plan for the laundry room
- Birthday dinner at my mom’s house
- More planning for fun things coming to the blog!
I hope all of YOU had a great weekend – what did you do with yourselves?
