Weekend Update

Back to the Monday grind today.  Boo, hiss...Lame! Why can't weekends be longer...??

Wishful thinking never got me anywhere so...on with my Weekend Recap.

Linking up with the ladies from Weekend Update!

On Thursday afternoon my MIL came down from LA with our nephew.  
He is 16 and taller than all of us.  
The MIL and I took him to the Padre game Thursday night.  
It was pretty fun...AND, they actually won!  
They have not been doing a lot of winning this season, 
and it is always more fun to see a win!

Let's go Padres!!

Friday I sat in a ton of traffic with my iPod blasting on the way home. 
The MIL, BF and nephew had already gone over to my BFs brother's house when I got home. The boys took his truck to Fiesta Island to drive around in the dirt for a while.  I relaxed for a bit before joining them for a BBQ. 
We had some OMG YUMMY Hawaiian tri-tip and Bourbon sausages from the meat market near us, Siesel's. If you live in San Diego, you should definitely check this place out!  
They have so many delicious meats (beef, chicken, fish), dozens of types of sausage, pre-made kabobs, crabmeat stuffed salmon, great dips and deli items, all kinds of awesome "craft" sodas... I could (and did) go on and on and on, just trust me.  Check it out!  (I'll try to get a pic next time I am there.)

Sunset on Mission Bay.

Saturday the boys went shooting.  
I did laundry and some other little things around the house. 
Ran a couple errands, and finished reading Moneyball.  
I can't think of another non-fiction book that I have voluntarily read (or even involuntarily - since college) and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 
If you are a baseball fan (not a casual fan but a TRUE fan) pick it up.
I loved this sentence....

Sunday my MIL took the nephew home. 
The BF and I hung around the house most of the morning. 
We checked on the flowers and other things sprouting in the garden. 
We did a little house cleaning (attacking the cobwebs as a team). 

Sunday afternoon, we picked up some tuna and egg and macaroni salad (again from Siesel's!) for a picnic dinner. 
We walked (well, I was mostly dragged) with the dogs to the park in our neighborhood. 
It was a lovely evening, sunny with a little breeze. 
Sitting at the park was relaxing for a few minutes... until other dogs had the audacity to come to the (PUBLIC, duh dogs!) park and invade our space. ;-)

Hope everyone had a good weekend!
