This poor ol’ blog of mine has been neglected and while it’s all for a good cause (work and life and stuffs), I miss it. So I’m succumbing to the Weekender Blog Post as it’s easy, fun, and lets me relive my weekends.

Since leaving my 9-5 desk job, I haven’t really had a set schedule with a start time, end time, or weekends. Steve and I have been taking every day as it comes and figuring out how to spend some time together doing something enjoyable and not lame, like housework. At this time, I’d like to take a moment to apologize to my home as it hasn’t been getting the kind of love it deserves, especially now that we have a puppy who is really into water.

We had the day off on Sunday so we packed up our things Saturday evening and headed to the cabin to meet up with Steve’s parents who were in for the weekend. We enjoyed a lovely meal, played some games, took the boat out on Sunday afternoon, and just lounged in the sun.

I picked up this beautiful edition of Aesop’s Fables at my local bookstore on Saturday afternoon. They had so many other beautiful editions of books I love so much. I originally had 4 in my hand to purchase but thankfully financially responsible Ali stepped in and forced frivolous Ali to put 3 down and walk away slowly.

On our way out there we stopped in at a idyllic farm with rows and rows of blooming lilies, among other beautiful flowers. We picked up some fresh veggies and the most delicious pie. photo 2 photo 1

Baloo was an adventurous girl this weekend. We know she loves the cabin and is completely obsessed with water, but we haven’t seen her swim all that much. We took her on the boat with us and after a few cuddles from me, she ventured all around the boat. She fell off the back of the boat and swam around a little too, which was awesome to see!

It was a lovely 24 hours away with the perfect amount of doing nothing! I hope you had a great weekend.
