Who's been hitting the hair dye?

My days of leisure are almost at a very sad end. The kids are coming back and Ben has gone to get them. But what a lovely, lazy day and a half I've had!

Thursday night doesn't count because that's when I dropped them off at church. Friday I spent the morning reading blogs to my heart's content. I read blogs I'd never been to before and followed links from one to another until I couldn't remember where I started. It was SO. MUCH. FUN. No pressure, no schoolwork, no one asking how to spell (fill in the blank) or when could we go to the Y. Just pure, unadulterated freedom with my coffee and my computer. And YOU were part of it!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for sharing my one-day-off-per-year with me!

Friday night I made a nice dinner for Ben and I - lemon-crusted salmon, twice baked potatoes, wilted spinach with garlic and we watched an old movie - something about a Redheaded Stranger. It had Willie Nelson, Morgan Fairchild, and other popular names which I cannot remember. Good show, but we were 15 minutes from the end when I asked Ben, "So where's the redhead?" He looked at me incredulously and said, "That would be Willie Nelson."

Oh, really?

When did Willie become a redhead?? Isn't he, like, indian or something? I'm still shaking my head.

This morning we slept late and Ben made us biscuits and perfect fried eggs for breakfast, I read the entire paper cover-to-cover, and did the crossword puzzle. And here I am, back for my daily fix.

It's been a lovely weekend spent with y'all (just a little something I picked up since I became a southerner). Hopefully it won't be another year until we can do this again!

Be thankful ~

I hope you don't wait a year either. But no matter how long, those "investing in your marriage and saving the sanity days" are part of your memory. And like a friend told me, those memories are like "head movies." So all year, you can play back your 36 hours of R and R and kind of get a mini refresher any time you need it!
