Happy Monday! What a wonderful weekend. It was a lot of fun catching up with my best friend and her family. It was crazy trying to get a bunch done, but I felt I got to relax a lot too.
Friday – After the week I had, all the energy I had was for a movie night in. I watched Hocus Pocus and This Means War.
Saturday – I headed up to New Hampshire to go apple picking with my best friend Lynnie, her hubby Mike and their little man. We went to Brookdale Farms in Hollis New Hampshire. I was a little bummed that they were out of Honey Crisp apples but they did have a lot of other varieties, including Pink Ladies which are my favorite. They are sweet and tart very similar to the honey crisp.
We headed to the farm stand after to check out the veggies.
We also went to Lull Farm which was just down the street and had a little larger vegetable section. I got this special vegetable that is supposed to be in the eggplant family. It was called a Twinkle!
After some quality time back at the house, I left to get some errands done. First to Wal-Mart to pick up some supplies for my cake decorating class on Tuesday and then went grocery shopping. Once home around 5:30pm I took Seamus for a walk then relaxed watching some of my DVR’d shows. I was so tired I ended up falling asleep during one of them for like 40 minutes. Oops.
Sunday – This was a lounge around the house kinda day.
I finished my book that I talked about on Friday. I really loved it and it was a quick read. I think it’s a little on the old fashioned side but I think that is what I love about it. It is still relevant today because it is all about charm, manners, killing people with kindness, and thinking about others before reacting. There is a part in it about when giving criticism or negative feedback and draping it in 3 compliments. It helps soften the blow and makes others feel less attacked. I really recommend reading it, I think everyone can pick up a few things worth using. Once I finished my book I did laundry, dishes, then swept and moped the floors. A quick break to watch Grease 2 and then some baking.
Two cakes for my cake decorating class.
Two batches of frosting for class.
Then I made some Apple Fritter Bread for my co-workers. This is before it went into the oven. After the oven it got drizzled with a thin icing.
I was so tired after all 3 hours of baking I could barely make something for dinner so I had corn. I only ate half of it too. I ate it while watching the last bit of the Patriots squeeze out a win.
How was your weekend?
