It was a fun and busy weekend around here, with a variety of visitors and events.
Friday night, we went to the high school football game, and Linus got to play with cousins Grace and Noah, as they (and their parents, of course), were staying in Elgin for the weekend. I was honored to serve as David’s cousin’s Confirmation sponsor on Saturday evening. This was followed by supper in a restaurant minus kids. This was a treat as well. Sunday, my entire family was together, as my brother, Jon, came for a visit from Milwaukee. David took the day “off”, and we were able to do a lot of front porch sittin’, and Jon had the chance to catch up with Linus and Eliza. It was a great day! He just left this morning. The only bad part was that Mollie couldn’t be here with us, but we’re looking forward to a Christmas visit!
So now I’m just trying to catch my breath, so to speak, and get back into the weekday routine. It definitely feels like a Monday today. Luckily for me, I unloaded a bunch more apples on my mom and Jon, so that lessens the guilt a little bit. Perhaps we’ll ride for a bit in the combine this afternoon, as it’s now rolling.
