Actually, that’s a lie.
There wasn’t anything particularly wild about my weekend, but I think that was exactly what I needed. Mostly the weekend was spent catching up on housework, sleep and a little bit of farm work. I know it doesn’t sound like a fabulous way to spend a weekend, but it really was. It’s been such a crazy-busy summer that it was nice to have a weekend where there just wasn’t much going on.
Friday night, Mr. B caught up on sleep after a crazy work week, and I caught up on my blog reading. Saturday morning we did a few chores, and then took the boat to the river to listen to The Clarks perform a free show at a local waterfront park. Unlike our usual boating shenanigans, it was pretty laid back. I think everyone is worn out from an on-the-go summer.
It was a great time – like a much smaller and calmer version of Kenny on the boat.
Yesterday, Mr. B worked on his truck and finished up some farm work while I cleaned the house and did all the laundry. HA. Sike. I watched Vampire Diaries on Netflix. But I totally thought about cleaning the house and washing clothes, so it counts, right?
We were, it appears, the only people in America who didn’t watch the VMAs last night. Instead, we made popcorn and watched Slums of Beverly Hills.
Joey loves him some popcorn. He doesn’t even need to hear the popping to come running anymore. He knows whats going on as soon as we pull the popcorn popper out of the cabinet.
No worries, I kept tabs on the VMAs thanks to everyone on Twitter last night (which may have been more entertaining than actually watching the awards myself), and caught up on the rest of what I missed this morning.
Since this was such a boring weekend recap with a lying title, here’s a little tune from The Clarks to make up for it. If you have no idea who The Clarks are, that’s probably because they are a local
band legend – they’ve been performing all over Pittsburgh since before I was even born and they are awesome.
Linking up with Sami for Weekend Shenanigans.
