We had a nice anniversary weekend. I think it was extra nice because we didn’t do much last year since I was hugely pregnant. On Saturday we went to Bates Steak House and enjoyed a fabulous dinner! Afterwards Thomas wanted to find a hoppin’ place but nothing was going at 8pm on a Saturday. So we found Brush Fire pottery and painted pottery. I thought it was a fun and spontaneous thing! I am not sure Thomas was as impressed. Thomas made a heart vase for me and I made a little candle plate. He’ll get them on Tuesday or Wednesday, so I’ll have pictures later.
Yesterday we drove to Florence and walked around Old Town all day. I found out that Florence isn’t actually on the coast, it’s on the Siuslaw river. Old Town is right at the docks and is where the good seafood restaurants are. To get to the ocean you have to go just north of town. We did that as we were leaving just so we could say we saw the ocean.
Something finally dawned on me today as I was reading how other mom-bloggers get organized for the week. They spend a good part of Sunday getting ready for their week. I am frequently not home on Sunday to get organized for the week. I squeeze in loads of laundry either in the morning before I go to work or in the evenings as I remember. I often get groceries on my lunch break. There just isn’t a lot of planning.
I did plan one thing. I am going to bake my pumpkins. We went to Lone Pine Farms with the two little ones on Saturday. Christopher picked out two tiny pumpkins for himself and I got 3 medium to smallish ones to bake. I want to make pumpkin puree. Maybe for muffins; maybe for pumpkin butter. After we got our pumpkins Christopher had loads of fun on the playground at the farm. Then we went to JC Penney to get more underwear. Like I told Julie, buy more underwear.
