A Good Weekend
I had a good weekend, considering the weather. Saturday was supposed to be some sun and 82 degrees. It was cloudy with occasional mist and mid-seventies. My nephew and niece had their soccer champ games. My nephew's team went into a kick off, and they lost by one shot. My neice's team won! She got two trophies! And the kicker is that they both made the all-star teams and will be playing with and against kids from other towns and counties! Hip-Hip-Horray!! I then spent the afternoon and my sis and BIL's house. They then got ready for trick-or-treating. (my nephew was. of all things, a soccer player) MY sister was a pirate and my neice was a cat. My BIL was a party pooper, and did not dress up. He was going to be a ninja (he's a black belt in karate, and my sis is a 2nd degree black belt). After T-O-T they were going to their church for a party. I made the one hour drive home, had dinner, and ate ice cream in bed while channel surfing. Sunday was a cool day filled with rain the first half of the day. Mike and I wanted to work outside, as we usually do on weekends, but the weather just wouldn't cooperate. I discovered the buff pullets were getting water in their coop, so that will have to be fixed this week. Mike may even move them today. I gave away my beautiful Aracana rooster to a friend, too. I didn't have a good use for him, but I didn't want to give such a beautiful rooster away to become a meal. My friend Les got him and took him to his chicken farm. Then my sis and BIL and nephew and niece came over last night. Mike made Fetuccini Alfredo with chicken and a salad (leftovers for lunch today) and we watched Transformers 2. And my sister brought me a gift. She actually gave it to me Saturday, but on the way out the door I grabbed the wrong one. She gave me a very nice digital camera. I picked up her expensive 35 mm camera. We made the exchange Sunday evening. So I don't have any pics today because I haven't really had a chance to check out the new camera. But Mike said he was going to take some today.
