I mean - perhaps I don't do a *LOT* more - but I'm betting you wouldn't either if you had a wonderful deck to sit on and (sometimes) gentle breezes blowing down off the mountains. It's a pretty sweet set-up, there's no denying it.

Definitely one of those little moments that pops up in the midst of the routine and makes all the difference!
Thursday evening was another switch in the routine; there was a barbecue at the clubhouse on the lake where my parent's house is - and so we all went up to the clubhouse to meet other neighbors and eat some pretty delicious. Although I do have to say; I wasn't sure that it was really possible to mess up macaroni and cheese, but they did do that. *sigh* They put mushrooms in the macaroni and cheese and y'all - I am not a fan of mushrooms - and it just really skewed the flavor. Oh well, lesson learned there.

|"Chatting" with his favorite Aunt (also his only Aunt...)|
After our BBQ adventure, we video chatted with Lindsey and nailed down our decisions for dining at Disney World - and y'all, if that's not exciting...I don't know what is! Can I just tell you, I am so psyched about eating at Be Our Guest and getting blue cheesecake from Satu'li Canteen that I cannot even handle it. I know...I'm thirty-two...but I will always be a completely starry eyed child when it comes to going to Disney World!

Not that he's ever seemed to struggle with chowing down on anything and everything put in front of him!
I did a lot...and a lot of nothing over the weekend. I was on my own and I always enjoy that; it's always an adjustment going from living on your own to living with your parents again, I love them but I also love having the entire house to my self, ha-ha! After an emergency mission to take my Mom her cell phone on Saturday morning, I started the sixth season of Game of Thrones - my re-watch mission is almost complete, got in an hour of exercise on the elliptical and washed clothes. Watson and I took a couple short strolls around the block - it was HOT on Saturday and all Watson seemed interested in doing outside was using the bathroom and then promptly flinging himself down on the grass to soak up the sun.
|Bubble bath colors all awhirl...|
|Giving up & just flopping out in the yard...silly dog.|
My friend Katie came over Saturday night for supper and to catch up - she's seven and a half months pregnant and so ended up spending a good amount of time trying to get her little guy to wiggle around so I could feel him. We ate some delicious (if I do say so myself) red beans and rice, tossed salad and garlic bread before having an hour long chat session on the deck (thank goodness for that umbrella) and playing Disney tunes and classical compositions in an effort to get the baby to "dance". After a short walk with the dog, some chatter with the next door neighbors and a slice of Butterfinger Icebox pie, I was finally able to feel the little guy busting a move! Very cool indeed!

And why would you want to do much more when sitting on the deck is so wonderful?
