A Taste of What’s to Come

Here’s a picture walk through the weekend so far:


Oliva was excited about visiting her grandparents and meeting the sheep, see them grazing in the background? She stayed overnight and slept in the “magic bed,” otherwise known as the sofa sleeper that Grandpa crashes in on the occasions when he finds himself out of other options. With the little one away the hubby and I went out to dinner.

I also worked on a DIY backyard project post that is more verbose than usual around these parts. I’m breaking it into bite size posts that I’ll share throughout the week. And the above quote should make more sense come Friday. I hope you all are having a great weekend! Anything special on the agenda?

      Thanks Catherine! It was mellow but fun too. It’s amazing how time seems to stand still when she’s not around.

    It seems like a weekend well-spent for the little one and the two big ones, Sandra. The shoe-shot is very cool. Lucky you and hubby for a date night. I look forward to the garden posts to come, my friend.

    Great post!

    I’m diggin’ the shoes. I’ve been trying to find a men’s version of the shoes for who knows how long.

      Thanks Christopher! I love them too. A co-worker found a pair of leather vans that were done up to mimic oxfords like these. They were so awesome! Still looking for those too.

    Li’l D would be so excited to meet the sheep! They’ve got goats in a small petting zoo at Disneyland, but I think that’s about it for the non-canine/feline animal meetings in his life so far. 🙂
