We had a pretty relaxed weekend. Friday we hung out with some good friends. Saturday we didn’t really have anything planned, so I was able to work on a project that I’ve been working on forever (blog to follow if I ever get it done!). Mid-morning, Earl and Maya came over and hung out for a bit.Layla was into the hug, but Maya was a lil skeptical.
Sunday we “secretly” planned a surprise birthday ambush for Pokie. I put secret in quotes because it was basically planned publicly on Facebook, but since Pokie isn’t on Facebook, it didn’t matter! As per my last blog, a lot of people felt bad that they didn’t wish Pokie a happy birthday, so Merin suggested that we actually do something for him. I personally thought writing the blog was enough, but apparently I was wrong. After church a few of us got together and surprised Pokie with a bday cake and some hang time. Here’s another shot of the bday boy, slim Pokie:Unfortunately Julie was at work, but hopefully Pokie left some cake for her to enjoy!
On another note, I’m on this journey to get my garage cleaned out so that I could park my car in there. In that effort, I created a make-shift shed for some of my stuff. I had some old pavers, so I laid those out as a base. I tried my best to dig the ground a bit to make it level, but since it was a temporary fix, I really didn’t put too much effort. There was an old stump in the ground, so I worked around it. Then with my ghetto fabulous mind, I decided to us a tarp to cover my gear. Again, it’s only temporary. I nailed down one end to the fence rail. The bottom side of the tarp is pinned down with some bricks. It’s not the best cover in the world, but it’ll work for now. If someone farts in that general direction, the tarp will blow over, so I put down some additional reinforcements. Hopefully I wont let this go on for too long and finally build a shed.
Layla and I have recently been playing hide and seek. She’s really into it, but doesn’t really grasp the concept. Here’s a shot of her hiding:I think the concept is that if she doesn’t see me, that I won’t see her. I explained to her that she was supposed to hide where it’ll be hard for me to find her. Here’s her next attempt:A lot better, but still got a little more work to do.
I know the blog title is “weekend review”, but this all happened over a few weeks. Just trying to catch up on things!
