I didn’t get a whole lot accomplished this weekend but I’m going to look at it this way: Sometimes you don’t have to get a whole lot done just to feel good about yourself. Right?
I did get the car situation taken care of, but unfortunately they found a couple of new issues with the Element that need to be addressed soon. Luckily, they won’t cost a fortune. I actually have a lot of Christmas shopping done. Easy to say when you’re hardly buying gifts, but still – it makes me feel better. My husband and I have agreed that we’re not exchanging gifts this year but experience has taught me that he will not honor this agreement. Plus he has that memory issue . . .
I got absolutely no cleaning done but honestly, the place is not that dirty. And the only people seeing it are us. We’re fine with it as it is. For me, it’s too early to decorate for the holidays, so I’m leaving that until next weekend.
Saturday afternoon, I sat outside in the absolutely gorgeous sunshine. Played a little frisbee with George, too. Did something to my knees but hell, it doesn’t take much to mess them up these days. Stupid knees. At least I can still walk.
There are a few straggler leaves clinging to the branches, and I like how they look.
After I got settled by the dogwood tree, the birds began coming back. I can always hear the chickadees before I see them because for such a little bird, they are so very noisy.
But they’re awfully cute.
And being in the sunshine was absolutely scrumptious.
The cat was chasing her tail . . .
. . . and the dog was happy because someone was playing frisbee with him.
And I still love squiggles.
And dreamy bokeh.
bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light." ~Wikipedia
And the bare branches of trees.
I’ve found that I prefer winter and fall too.
Takes all kinds, doesn’t it?
Heard this tune on the Zales commercial yesterday and decided it’s pretty cool.
If it wasn't for you, don't know what I'd do.
I'd have nothing to prove, I've got nothing to lose
I'd be all lost at sea, with no reason to make it through.
If it wasn't for you.

Hope your weekend has been a good one. I’m making one of my husband’s favorites for dinner tonight because I’ve decided it’s about time I actually cooked something. It’s an easy one, too: Bangers & Mash. Yum.
Until tomorrow, my friends ~
