Welcome to another Weekend Potpourri, and the celebration of all good things that came from this week.
Today I am linking up the West Metro Mommy Reads, for Saturday Snapshots.
The purges of the past few months have been numerous, and while it may seem as if my mantra is “everything must go,” nothing could be further from the truth. Above, note the addition of a new device: my Blu-Ray player, on which I can now play Netflix…and down the road, my Amazon Videos.
There were a few glitches after its installation, but the AT&T service rep came out and upgraded my modem, my cables, and everything is now in great working order. I have been bingeing on Breaking Bad every night, instead of only on the weekends.
And yesterday I took a load of books to the library….(see the bookshelf full of them in the garage):
Now my garage is purged….with bins filled with collections to store until I decide what to do with them. And the empty bookshelves now belong to my daughter. She hauled them away, along with all of her stuff that I had been storing! The garage is mine again….
We are celebrating all kinds of things this weekend….last week, my granddaughter Aubrey graduated high school, with lots of fun events to top things off. Here she is, below, with two of her brothers and her dad. Why the lei? Well, for a senior trip, she was off to Hawaii. What fun, right?
Next week, my other granddaughter Fiona will be graduating. More pictures to come!
And before they all existed, these beautiful grandchildren, there were my three sons in this picture from 1971, five years before I also had my daughter. Remember the snapshot of me in the mid-sixties with poofy hair? Well, we went from that to the plainer version.
What are you featuring this weekend? I hope you’ll stop by and share.
