A weekend of spring tease

Listening now…

I just found this song tonight- I find it so beautiful…enjoy.

I hope you have all and are still enjoying your weekend!

My weekend ended up being busier than I thought- but luckily, I got to spend some time out in the sun! We had 60 degree weather Saturday in the sunshine and it was a lovely little tease for Spring.

The pups quite enjoyed it, too.

Again, the The struggles of a jack russell are real tough. Clearly.

My Sissy recommended this book to me and let me borrow it. I thought it is the perfect time to start it out in the sun on the swing- so far I love it….

When the babies were not busy sleeping in the sun, they were off chasing squirrels.

We have been very lucky this year with a mild winter with many spring tease days. Days like this keep me going until spring actually comes. Oh sunshine, how I miss thee.

I was planning on enjoying the sunshine and lovely weather by going to Woodstock for the day. Mama surprised me by telling me we got 2 cords of wood delivered.

So, I spent the time in the sunshine in a much different way than I expected- stacking wood. 

I was just grateful it was so beautiful out and to have the workout for the day…especially since I did not make it to the gym last week….

That night, after all the hard work was done, we went out to dinner with friends- the place was lovely and we had never been there, so it’s always fun to try new things.

The moon was showing off for us that night, and I could not resist….

Lobster mac n cheese and rib sliders…. YUM

 

Looking back and writing this, I spent the weekend eating very well.

Today, I participated in a work event- a huge fundraiser they have every year to raise money for the nonprofit I work for.

Last year, they raised $50,000.

This year, their goal was $75,000.

The fundraiser benefits an array of our different programs- both serving adolescents and adults- including our numerous homeless shelters and domestic violence shelters.

I felt honored to be paid to be here today and watch people donate with all of their hearts to such a great cause- and got to eat a lot of chocolate along the way, too.

The theme is a Chocolate Lover’s Brunch.

The brunch features both a live and silent auction, with a bunch of items that have been donated to be auctioned on.

I got paid to drink mimosas and eat chocolate today. Thank you, universe.

It feels nice to be inside tonight relaxing after a busy weekend.I have reached season 4 of Downton Abbey and am still just as obsessed.

But it was a very productive one, too!

What did you all do this weekend? Share with me!

  1. It was only in the 30s there so I was wrapped up but I did lay on our deck in my jacket and let the sun shine on my face. Felt good after a week of no sun. Did a lot of self care and catching up. I am so ready for the week.
