This week's snapshots brought to you by the lovely sky and hills of Pleasanton, California. Linking up with 3twentysix and The Reinvention of Jessica for their weekly Weekend Snapshots!
SaturdayShane and I drove out to Pleasanton to the Highland games to visit with our dad and his wife. The weather was actually pleasant for once and not a broiling 100 degrees! I tried to find a friend that participates every year and has a family booth and does the caber tossing, but their tent was empty every time. I also overpaid for some foreign snacks and had fish and chips for lunch. We ended the afternoon with some music then headed home. Luckily we were on the noncongested side for traffic!
We got Nick the Greek for dinner and the boys played Magic while I tried my best not to fall asleep before ten. I was exhausted! Too much outside.
SundayWoke up to a quiet house, had my coffee and cuddled with kitties. Roommate was out for the weekend again so I was able to enjoy a seemingly empty house for a few hours while my husband slept in (he didn't go to bed until 1 am as is usual. I just can't seem to stay awake that long most of the time!)
I did a quick and shitty job (my MO, really) of covering up the bottom of the fence the neighbor's dog has been making. I used some concrete blocks I found behind the shed. They put up the for rent sign again. Wonder why they put it up, took it down, waited a month or so, then put it back up? Should try to find it on Craigslist again. (Just checked, before they had it listed for 3400/month, now it's listed for 3800/month. WHAAAAT. At least that includes all the utilities. I'm including a photo, it's not some McMansion or anything.)
He found one of my favorite movies "A New Leaf" and I watched that while he side-eyed it and played Magic on his laptop. Henrietta Lowell is my spirit animal.
Neil went out and got our dinner, and I mostly slubbed about and then we binged all but one episode of Stranger Things. I use to be very scared of the dark all the way into my teens, so it still surprises me that I'm not now. Our house was pitch dark while we were watching, and Soya started scratching at the back door and I got up and looked out no problem. It was the super cute possum so I watched him eat, wash his face, and waddle over to drink the turtle's water. AH, I WANT TO SNUGGLE HIM.
MondayAnother early quiet morning. But the plan was to do all the things I didn't do the past two days. Did some yard work and other chores and stuff (documented on my Instagram stories!). The squirrels keep burying walnuts and they keep sprouting. I wouldn't mind having a walnut tree, just not that close to the fence.
We watched the last episode of Stranger Things and I'm so glad they are going to make a second season!
this is the neighbor's house, before the addition of the ugly mushroom bird bath thing.
