It was silly of me really, to make a list.
I mean you know and I know that a list in the life of a mama is seriously laughable. Nothing ever goes according to plan, does it?
I didn't get all our closets organized… but I did get the house pretty clean and all the winter clothes out of the master bedroom closet. And that helps. A lot.
I didn't read a book…. but we did go to dinner at the home of some really great friends. We ate ourselves silly. The kids ran around like wild things, and the grownups talked well into the night. That's as good as story as any.
I didn't watch a movie… but my kids discovered that we can watch Survivorman instantly on Netflix. As much as it was NOT the kind of flick I was hoping for, in fact it's kind of the complete OPPOSITE of a sweet, homey, girly movie, I have to admit I kind of dig that show.
I did not get that little sewing project out of my dreams and into reality… but I did go on a long drive with my oldest, our resident farmer/lepidopterist, to a butterfly farm. The look on his face when he entered a green house FILLED with butterflies, well that was SO worth the sewing machine gathering just a little more dust.
As for making something delicious… well it wasn't quite what I envisioned, but we DID make homemade pizza and then we ate it standing up, gathered around a repurposed fish tank, watching one of our Gulf Fritillary butterflies emerge from its chrysalis.
So, it wasn't what I planned at all, but it was a weekend full of inspiration, wonder, good friends and good times. Come to think of it, that's a pretty great list.
I hope your weekend and the week ahead are full of every good thing.
