My resplendent weekend

For months upon months I have been busy beyond belief. Every weekend is just Go Go Go. Now don't get me wrong. There is indeed a big part of me that loves being involved in activities, going places and having fun. There comes a time however where I just want to be home. I have so much i need to get accomplished around the house. I have so much i just want to get done. My biggest thing is that I just want to be around the homestead to enjoy my house, my Fiance and my child.
 Well 2 out of three isn't bad. My son was gone for the weekend. So of course I missed him like crazy. I still managed to have some fun. As I had posted last week we went to a corn maze on Friday night. It was so much fun. It didn't take but a half an hour to get there from my house. That being said after my perpetually late friend arrived we made it to Andover around 8:30 Pm. I apologize as I don't have pictures being so It was already very dark.  I did get a little chuckle as the cute elderly lady at the ticket booth asked my vertically challenged friend if she was an adult. She is 30. She is beautiful and still looks very young. Lucky duck. I guess her lack of height confuses some people. I hope she will appreciate this as she ages.
Getting back to the maze. My father had once told me as a child that you can make it out of any maze by placing your right hand on the wall. You must not deviate from the right hand wall at any time. So you ask does this theory work? Why yes yes it does indeed. We made it out in about thirty minutes. The problem was and one of our reasons for returning into the maze. There was a game to play while inside. You had to find all ten stations. We quickly learned that you had to in fact get lost to find them all. So second time around and very much lost it took us approximately one and a half hours to get through. I recommend this trip to anyone. It was a blast. I think I will return this weekend with my son in tow. During the day perhaps.
 Saturday was a perfect home bound day with my sweetheart. The only tedious task being grocery shopping which I detest in oh so many ways. We spent the morning straightening the house together then ventured outside for a beautiful day. I did some much overdue yard work. I cut the grass as all this rain as created a jungle. I was eternally grateful for a few dry days so that this could be done. I also tried my hand at our electric trimmer. Wow not as easy as one would think. I have two blue cypress topiary's in my front yard that are spherical shaped on top with many little balls around it. I will just say I did my best to keep them well lets just go with roundish. Haha. They look better than when I started that's all that matters. Jim worked on my car that is forever needing repair. That's what I get for driving over sixty miles one way to work everyday. Jim cooked us dinner Sausage biscuits and gravy. Oh love some comfort food. I swear he is such a great cook. Then we spent the evening talking and being silly. We played name that tune on the Internet quizzing each other on who sang this song. Yes we are geeks at times. Its fun hey don't judge me. He he. We then snuggled up on the couch watched a movie and passed out. It might not sound like much to you but it was a welcome change of pace for us. It was nice to get things done around the house and just be together.

 Sunday was another beautiful day outside. We had so much more work to do but we decided to skip it. We know that this weather will not last. So Jim suggested one of my favorite activities. A nice long hike in the park. The woods as I may have mentioned before is one of my favorite places. I have a certain park which is by my work about 45 minutes from my house. This park is my Utopia. I was surprised though that the leaves had not changed as much here. By my house they are already in there glory. I guess I don't pay that much attention on my drive in as I am focused on getting through boundless amounts of traffic. So the boys ( Jim and Charlie) and I walked for a few hours. It was wonderful and relaxing. It was then time to pick up my little guy from his fun filled weekend. The ride back home was nice. We talked with Xzavior until all grew quiet. This was the view from the back seat. Two very tired boys. I couldn't ask for a better weekend!
