Vignettes from the weekend

I am tired.

Wanna know how I know?

I put a pot of potatoes on for a vigorous boil for tonight's dinner…

Only to discover when dinner was ready, that

we had a pot of BLACK, CRUNCHY rice.

Supremely unedifying.

What a spate of glorious, glorious weather!

Hot, sunny, and clear.

Without the humidity of summer.

Long may it continue!

Supremely edifying.

We have had such a lovely weekend.

On Saturday, a bunch of us (5 families) met up at a school Gala Day.

Such great fun - You've just gotta go to these things with a bunch of friends.

The kids ate lotsa junk food and bounced around on sugar highs!

The moms hunted gourmet bargains (cakes for $2 !) and

free samples (sacrificial love - to help preserve their husband's waistlines).

The lads…who knows what the lads talked about! My guess would be – technology (and probably technology)!

And the kids also went hunting….for free stuff they thought their parents needed! Bless their woolly socks.

Photo frames, a CD rack, paintings, old computer parts, a mat, pottery, nic nacs, vases, books, fake flowers, and even A MOP!

Turns out that the mop was actually not a giveaway, but had been a tool in use! Ooops!

Dinner together is always a treat.

Fish 'n chips with friends.


Sunday's sermon was great.

All about turning our "Some day…" into "This day…"


So nice to spend time with family on a Sunday afternoon.

And to explore the nearby rocky shore with curious boys.

People enjoying the sunshine everywhere at the beach.

Picnics, kites, sunbathing, strolling, swimming,

Seniors having games of petanque in the sand –

E's comment:

" Oh great! A day we can all look forward to – the day our parents start playing petanque!"

E, what's wrong with petanque? It's a great game, I love it. Looks like you had a great time. It was cold and raining the whole weekend here - miss you all. SM
