Beautiful weekend

And after the summer Ohio has had, a welcome one, too.

Friday night, after an especially stressful week, the Thriller and I picked up the grandsons for a sleepover, for what could be the last time until November. (I originally commented here, “Stupid rehearsals.” That was unfair. My rehearsals aren’t stupid — I actually enjoy them, most of the time — I just wish there were more hours in the day, that’s all.) It was a fantastic time, albeit too short.

We went to BFF Kay and Bob’s house (the gorgeous Thistlefink Gardens) for pizza and relaxation. We had great conversation over dinner, while Kay and the Thriller alternately handled face-cleaning duties as a result of the Js dipping their pizza slices in marinara — a dandy trick their Grammie taught them. That was a photo op in itself, but of course, I was too busy chowing down to grab my phone.

After dinner, the four boys disappeared outside, looking for some trouble to get into. We found them down by the creek:

Bob threw down the gauntlet by tossing some leaves at Jake. And then, it was, as they say, on.

Too bad the weekend’s almost gone. Time to get busy writing parts for pit players, planting tulips, daffodils and hyacinths, and hitting Mansfield for some necessaries. We’re going to try and squeeze in a matinee of Ides of March, then maybe tonight I’ll get a chance to watch another episode of The Borgias (yes, we broke down and added Showtime) before the season finale of Breaking Bad.

Happy Sumday to you — if you’re in my neck of the woods, enjoy that summer-like weather. Come January, we’re going to wish it was back.

Borgias is INTENSE!! Probably the *only* reason that we have Showtime is for Dexter…but then Borgias came on. Can’t wait for the next installment!! Make sure to write a nifty review of Ides… that one looks quite interesting!! Pizza & marinara … I now know what’s for supper tonight xoxo B ReplyRat Fink Reply:October 9th, 2011 at 5:51 pmAgreed! I finished the first season this afternoon. LOVE IT. Now I have to get going on season 2 of Dexter to get caught up with that. We ended up not going to see the movie — instead, we went to Best… Read more »

Do you remember playing in the leaves when we lived in that house in Waukegan? I remember all the neighborhood kids coming over. We used to bury you in the leaves because you were so tiny! :-) Great pictures of the J’s, sweetie. Looks like everyone had a grand time!

I do remember playing in the leaves! Although I’ve likely repressed the memory of being buried alive…HA
