I enjoyed just an ordinary weekend here at home; a good balance between chores and kicking back.
But I did spend (nearly) every minute with Nick.
(As in Nicholas Nickleby. My "over 800 pages" square for Book Bingo.*)
Nick and I took the dogs for a long, long walk on Saturday morning.
And then, we spent quite a bit of time out in the garden, weeding and deadheading mostly. (But we also got rid of quite a lot of poison ivy together.) (Because Nick is always ready to lend a hand.)
Nick was right there by my side as I took got on with the usual household drudgery.
And he didn't mind hanging out with me while I got ready for a night out. (He may have enjoyed the movie - Mr. Holmes - but I made him stay home all the same.)
On Sunday, when it was altogether too hot and humid to spend more than a few minutes outside, Nick and I organized my yarn stash and recorded it all on Ravelry. (Photos, too.) (More on that another day.)
And then, Nick and I treated ourselves to a fair amount of knitting.
Still. It wasn't enough. Nick and I will be hanging out a bit more today!
(Like . . . for about an hour or so.)
* Don't feel too bad for me, because I LOVE Charles Dickens. He is brilliant! A bit wordy . . . but wonderful, once you get into the rhythm of his writing. (And no one, absolutely no one, does "come-uppance" or "karma" better than Charles Dickens. Always so satisfying!)
