Friday: Is it bad that I don't even remember what I did on Friday? I've been really exhausted lately, so I know I didn't do anything that required a lot of effort.
Saturday: Ran a couple of errands before going to my parents' house. We had a graduation party that evening, so I made Loaded Baked Potato Dip and my mom made her famous cheesecake. While sitting outside and watching the birds, we noticed a squirrel in our old birdhouse. The hole has been enlarged by the woodpeckers over the years, but I was still a little surprised to see a squirrel could fit in there. The graduation party was a lot of fun, but we had to leave early because we had a wicked storm come through our area that night. We made it home just before it started to rain. I mean, within two minutes.
Sunday: Mom and I spent the morning on the patio with coffee and tea watching the birds. It's always a lot of fun to watch them because there are so many trees for them to fly between. I helped Dad with a few chores before Mom and I went to visit Grandma. That evening, I cooked dinner. Dad even taught me how to use the gas grill (that was a first for me). While waiting for dinner, we found out why there was a squirrel in the birdhouse. She had had babies! Very quietly, we watched her move her 5 (5!) babies one by one from the birdhouse on the post to the tree in the side yard. It was so cool to see. I have to say I had never seen anything like that before!
How was your weekend?
