Weekend Bites

Finally the weekend! This month has been jam packed with events at work and I've managed to schedule myself into working every weekend for the month.  Today was the last one for a bit and it feels fantastic! Don't get me wrong dear readers, I enjoy my job and have a blast with the GS events, but there's something to be said for not having to set an alarm or have somewhere specific to be.  

This morning I manned a table at the Summer Activity Fair - a place for parents to come learn about what summer activities are available for their children and get ideas.  It went really well - around 100 people came and I had a lot of interest for quilt camp. 

After that, I met up with N and we went to the Empty Bowls event!  If you remember, we glazed a bowl with Rotaract and today was the actual fundraiser.  There were still bowls in abundance to choose from when we arrived and it was fun to see all the different types. The bowl you choose is yours to keep- though it's not likely to be one that you painted.  Once we selected a bowl, it was time to eat!  Local restaurants provided food and I tried just about all of it.  Everything from Chick-Fil-A nuggets, to cornbread, to chili & mashed potatos, to taco salad, Panera bread & more.  Everything was delicious and I'm sure they raised a lot of money which is donated to the Community Kitchen here to help feed the hungry. 

N & I also met up after Mass for dinner & ice cream and we rented One Day from redbox.  It was a good movie, though I wish they didn't have to make it so tragic!  I really enjoy watching Anne Hathaway & Jim Sturgess - always good.

But do you want to know the best part of the weekend?
I have Monday off.  Hooray!  That's 2 full days to play & relax & sleep in and have fun.  I haven't worked out a full plan yet - some of it depends on the weather.  It's supposed to warm back into the 60s on Mon., but the wind has been pretty brutal this week so we'll see.  I know there will be some quilting involved.  I got my I Spy charms back in the mail - everyone picked such great fabrics - so there will be all sorts of things to work on in the next couple days.
