 Don't ask me where the weekend went!

Saturday the boy needed some boy/Mom time... so after a trip to Aldi's to stock the crispers with fruits and veggies it was time for lunch. He was hungry so decided on Southern Pig and Cattle... which Dad and Emily had selected for their date. We decided to go together. Then we split up and Aidan and I went looking for desks for his room (that needs cleaning and a place to put it first!). He was searching for things to do on my phone and found a marion county museum of history and archaeology. We got there about 45 minutes before they closed and he had so much fun looking around. The 2 people working there came and asked if he had seen a few things... and pointed them out and was sharing the history. Aidan loved it and they gave him a few books to take home! He pointed out all the sewing type things to me!

They let me touch the quilt - big baptist fan quilting with a thin batting. He mentioned there are more quilts in storage! We need to go back!

We went to the main library after since it was across the street. He got a bunch of books then wanted to find the geocache. All our libraries have one that they change yearly. After a bunch of searching, and a little help from our librarian we finally found it. 
A stop at a chocolate shop with a coupon in the kids school coupon book and then it was home to cook up some fajitas for dinner (that was planned for Friday but I didn't have time to cook up before horses and I put the men in charge of dinner - yes, they ordered pizza).
Sunday.... once the kids finally left for Grandma's after 10AM... I read a little on the internet then took a shower and logged into work for the day....until the thunderstorm dropped my connection around 4:30. 

I did manage to finish sewing row 13+14 together after work Sunday. I think I have lots of cream and not much variety of greens left for the last two rows. I'll have to pull the greens out and make some more tumblers to finish this one off.
