Happy Monday, friends. I'm linking up with Tanya from The Other Side of the Road for this blog post.

My weekend started with my dad coming over on Friday. I made us a yummy lunch consisting of grilled cheese sandwiches and roasted red pepper and tomato soup. The weather here is WAY hotter than I like, so even though it was hot outside, inside the house it was nice and cool. I took him home, then ended up staying in all night while my husband went out with three of our sons—Graham was working. I didn't feel great and just wanted to eat here, so I watched tv while I ate dinner.

On Saturday morning, I met my sister Trish out at my dad's and we hung Christmas lights on his property all. day. long.

The trees out there were showing off for us! And leaves were all over the place. This was me at the end of his driveway with a wagon loaded down with Christmas lights.

I mentioned the weather—I feel like I got sunburned, but I really didn't, maybe just a little windburned. I also think I got slightly dehydrated and felt weird for part of the time we were at his house. I was home around four, showered and eating pizza for dinner by four forty-five. And all night I watched Hallmark movies since Todd was working and the boys were all out.

I felt so much better when I woke up Sunday and was at church by 8:30 for praise team rehearsal and sound check. 

I was on a praise team here in our fellowship hall (we're still spaced out and have different locations inside our church because of Covid). I was sitting at a table with a chair that I sat in earlier and did my Bible study homework at while I waited on the service to start. I like to make the most of my time and either do that or I'll take a book I'm reading and pass the hour reading while I wait on the service to start.

I came home for lunch and watched another Hallmark movie—Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Sweater—then went to my mom's house for dinner. I marveled over all of her beautiful Christmas decorations and she sent me home with stuff for our house when I put ours up this week! I am planning on doing ours on Thursday and cannot WAIT.

How was your weekend? I'd love to hear from you! Thanks for reading my blog, love to all.

Yay for Christmas decorating! I agree, the weather is a little warmer than what I would like, but thankful it is still comfortable outside and getting a little cooler as this week progresses.

I'm off to watch some Christmas movies this week before decorating next week. Have a good day!
