Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
We’ve been so lucky with summer weather this year. Although it’s rained a lot, temps have rarely gone above 82, and humidity has been pretty low. With the exception of a quick thunderstorm Saturday morning, this weekend was no exception.
My husband got home from a work trip a little early on Friday, so after we picked up our daughter at camp, we went out for an early dinner at one of our favorite Saratoga restaurants. My daughter and I may or may not have gotten some frozen yogurt after dinner, too…
On Saturday we went to a local carnival/fair. Our daughter rode some rides, we saw some petting zoo animals, and overpaid for lemonade. It was pretty typical. Afterwards, my in-laws arrived from New Jersey. Their grandson is in Cooperstown for a baseball tournament, and they’re going up to watch his team play for a few days. We had a late lunch at home with them, and hung out on deck, enjoying the weather.
I spent much of yesterday home alone, while my husband and daughter went to Cooperstown with my in-laws for the day. I read the paper, went for a walk, did a few chores, and baked some muffins.
The Week Ahead
This should be a pretty low-key week. One highlight is my visit to the spa today. My husband and daughter gave me a massage and facial package for Mother’s Day, and I’m redeeming it this morning. My daughter has gymnastics after camp on Tuesday, and on Friday we’ll be attending her camp play performance. As of now, our weekend is blissfully unscheduled. We’ll probably incorporate a trip to the pool or a playground for our daughter.
