Weekend Recap

On Friday I went to Chapters at lunchtime and got a coffee, then I came back to my office and read my book for a few minutes before finishing off my work week.  

When I got home, E had put up some Christmas decorations of his own, aka a package of pipe cleaners folded over the drawer handles and placed on the arms of the couch.  He said to me later, "Santa will like that".  He was very concerned the we hadn't started decorating yet and that we might be too late for Christmas so he took matters into his own hands.  

On Friday evening we watched The Affair and the Raptors game.  We also enjoyed our first egg nog of the season.  Dave had spiced rum in his. I had Jameson's Irish Whisky and Kahlua.  Topped with freshly grated nutmeg from Grenada (courtesy of my mom when they went there on a cruise last year).

On Saturday morning we did a bit of housework and then E had Sportball.  In the afternoon Dave cleaned our bedroom from top to bottom, and then I cleaned E's room and organized his closet.

Before. Clothes that don't fit, board books, baby supplies. 

After.  Still full of stuff, but now more organized with puzzles and games in a place where E can get them. 

On Saturday night we started watching Jessica Jones because it was trending on Twitter.  It is pretty good, we will watch more of them.

On Sunday morning E and I went to church and Dave finished raking the leaves in the backyard and got some Christmas decorations up from the basement.  We did our usual run up the street for groceries.

Late afternoon we walked up to the park to play for a few minutes before going to Queen Margherita Pizza for supper.  We met some friends there and had a great supper.

On our walk home we enjoyed the Christmas lights, including this yard full of snowmen (corner of Jane and Annette).

This week we will continue decorating the house and then get our tree on Saturday.


  1. Love weekends this time of year! Such a nice mix of family time and errands!

  2. what a great weekend. Love that E took matters into his own hands and did some wonderful decorating to help mommy before Santa comes. You just have to love the Egg Nog season. Karen P
