Weekend musings

This weekend Patrick came home for a visit. He finished his mid-terms and hitched a ride with his roommates and he didn’t even bring his laundry. He just showed up at one thirty in the morning full of energy and relieved to be back amid the comforts of home.

He’s catching up on sleep and enjoying the refrigerator packed with food, and I’m cooking more. This morning the kitchen is filled with sunlight, and I’m trying out this zucchini bread recipe from Paula Deen.

And I’m enjoying all the simple, mundane things about this long weekend.

Last night, while Michael was at a Sadie Hawkins dance and Patrick was with friends, Jim and I went downtown to eat dinner. We drank wine and talked about our “bucket list” of things we want to do because I think that Grandma’s time in the hospital has reminded us of how precious our health is…

and how time is flying by.

But mostly we’re staying home this weekend.

I’ve been waiting for Victoria Alexander’s book One, to arrive and I just got it yesterday. (Can you see where Stella has already chewed off a piece of the book cover?)


It’s filled with colorful, vibrant photos from her travels around the world and accompanied by her thoughtful commentary about living alone and being happy…

and I can’t wait to pour through the pages.

But first there’s lots of catching up to do.

We’ll see the grandparents today because Patrick’s home.

And I’ll run over to the hospital to visit Grandma…

But mostly we’ll all hang out. Eating good food, playing with Stella, having long conversations, talking about politics and college life and comedy shows and rowing times and we’ll see a movie and anything else that suddenly sounds fun.

Don’t you just love getting up in the morning and having NOTHING planned but glorious spontaneity?

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
