Scenes From The Weekend

Our weekend:

11 hours of sleep both nights.  Generous helpings of coffee + tea + treats. Shopping for fall "necessity" items (aka new slippers) and last minute wedding needs (shoes for T, spanx for me). Dinner at my aunt and uncle's house. Romantic poetry-reading session.* Lesson-planning. Picnicking with friends at the apple orchard.

I attempted to write more descriptive and cogent sentences, but my brain decided that was far too much effort at 10:30 pm on Sunday evening.

For now, I wish you all a very happy Monday. It's a 3-day work week for me, which would be fabulous if there wasn't so much that needed to be squeezed in. A lot of you asked for clarification: we are indeed heading to city hall to get married in three days. As in, Thursday.

Off I go, much to be done.  (Check back tomorrow for photos from the orchard).

P.S. You can see another love poem in my recent guest post on Ashley's blog.
