The Weekend

4:41 PM

Saturday was a huge disappointment.  I had to work until 11:30.  Piece of cake right?  Not so fast.  I didn't get home until 7PM.  Not that we had plans other than to decorate the tree, but still I wanted to spend time with the family.  We were on a mechanical delay and ended up ferrying (no passengers) the plane back to Denver.  It was a day of sitting around.  We waited for the decision to be made to cancel the flight.  We waited to get the ferry permit.  It was a long flight.  The two bright spots...I was able to go to Barnes and Noble (while waiting) to buy a Christmas present.  And I got A LOT of knitting done.  Woo Hoo.

It got cold and windy Saturday night.  It was supposed to snow and be miserable on Sunday.  It was cold all day on Sunday, but we only got a trace of snow.  Corrine and I were homebodies all day and we hung out in our sweats.  She colored, watched a bit of Sprout TV and napped.  I cleaned and decorated and then knit while she napped.  I pulled some Senate Bean Soup out of the freezer for dinner.  When Bryan gets home from work we'll finally decorate the tree!

Holiday Ducks

It was nice to just hang out with no obligations today.  Hope you enjoyed the weekend!  Have a great week.

  1. I'm sorry you had such a long wait getting home, but it sounds like you made the best of it. Knitting and a book store sounds like a lot of fun.
    I wish we had your cold here, it was 78 degrees here today, it's terrible to be so warm this time of year.

  2. I think that a lot of the time people (myself included sometimes) don't realize that delays are just as stressful and annoying to the staff probably even more so. I'm so happy that you were able to turn the day around!

  3. Shame about the delay but glad you had your knitting with least you didn't waste your time and you got back safe and sound and the rest of the weekend sounds good. We've still got to get our tree yet...never been this late before.

    I must just google senate bean soup....sounds interesting.

    Have a good day

  4. I hope you have loads of vacation time for the holiday! Working on a saturday stinks. Love the festive ducks :)

  5. I love the ducks!! Saturday sounds miserable but Sunday sounds wonderful! I'm glad you were able to enjoy part of the weekend!!

  6. I unfortunately work most Saturdays as well but I get a day off in the middle of the week to make up for it. Great blog!
