Why is it that weekends fly by?
Nick and I had so much fun meeting our little nephew – it was hard leaving after just a few hours! We got to spend some time with him and the family, just hanging out around the house, watching a movie, and all taking a nap :) It was a great way to start our Saturday.
We left their house around 2:30 on Saturday to drive back home, so we ended up not getting home until around 11:30 pm Saturday night. But it was totally worth all the driving!
The craziest thing that happened this weekend? On our way home that night, there was a big storm coming through so it was raining, thundering, and the sky was filled with heat lightening.
Nick and I pulled off on an exit to take our bag out of the back of the truck, and right when we got to the stop sign at the end of the exit ramp, the sign got struck by lightening! It was nuts! I’ve never actually seen anything get hit by lightening – but we could see the burned spot at the bottom of the sign. Crazy, right?
After that, our drive was normal – thank goodness!
And yesterday was all about getting ready for the week ahead.
Since Maggie didn’t have much time to play outside this weekend, we took her out to Glen Alton farm yesterday afternoon and let her run and swim for about an hour while we walked around. The weather was perfect, and we had the place to ourselves! We need to remember to go on Sunday afternoons rather than Saturdays – there’s almost always other people there on Saturdays, and it was nice to be the only people there.
Once we got home, it was all about laundry, cutting the grass, picking and shucking peas from the garden, and eating dinner.
Not a bad way to end the weekend :)
I even remembered to prep my breakfast last night!
I mixed up some overnight oats last night with 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup almond milk, a pinch of salt, cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp or so of chia seeds. The mixture thickened up overnight, and this morning I added:
- 1/4 cup Coconut Milk Kefir
- 1.5 Tbsp walnuts
- blueberries, strawberries
- sprinkling of Not Sweet Vanilla Galaxy Granola
The bottom layer of this bowl was all berries. We got some fresh blueberries from Nick’s sister who went and picked them this week, and the strawberries are from a roadside stand we stopped at on the Eastern Shore before coming home.
The walnuts + granola were the perfect amount of crunch! And you just can’t beat fresh, ripe berries. Plus, this coconut milk kefir is awesome. I like it more and more every time I have it.
PS: I’ve decided I do not like the vanilla coconut milk creamer. I should have known when I bought it – I’m just not a fan of flavored creamers, period.
Back to the original, it is!
How was your weekend? Even seen anything hit by lightening?
