We got the hot weather we’ve been asking for this weekend! WHEW! And it was a hot one. Until this past weekend, here in Pittsburgh, we’ve had more than our share of rain. Our garden, the neighbors’ and a few friends’ are experiencing less veggies this year, root rot and mildew.

However, as I said, this weekend was HOT. Friday night, the kids met me at the bus stop (I took the B and got off at Frick Park). We pretty much had ice cream cones for dinner and took Elliot to the park. He was dynamite and we had a really good time, leaving at dusk.
Saturday, Mom came over early and we headed on out to the Mills to do a little shopping at Sam’s Club, lunch at Sonic and more shopping at Giant Eagle. At Sam’s Club, I bought enough meat for two week’s worth of meals. At Giant Eagle, I bought side dishes and such. I’ve a little meal planning to do and that little task will be taken care of.

That evening, Kayla and Elliot and I packed a cooler and loaded folding chairs, pillows, diapers, and wipes into the car and headed on out to the Dependable Drive-In. We sat under the stars (it turned out to be a gorgeous evening, not too hot) and watched Minions and Inside Out on the big screen. Elliot stayed awake for both features.
|What could he be thinking????|
Sunday, Mom came over for breakfast and I made omelets, which Elliot surprised me and ate (I had added mushrooms and chopped onions). Then Mom went home and K, E and I went to Kohl’s to buy three short outfits for E (he is growing TOO fast) and a few items for K. Next up is contacts for K and fall shoes for E.
Back home, E took a nap, I did laundry, K tried to dye her hair two shades of purple. Silly girl. It was too hot to cook so we just threw some crab into a Caesar Salad. Showers all around, True Detective on the tube, deep sigh. This was a GOOD, GOOD weekend.
How was yours??
