Our Weekend

Scott and I have been having a couple of nice weekends in a row where we haven't had any real plans on Friday or Saturday night! It has actually been quite nice. Friday night, we played games together and then watched one of the free OnDemand movies through our cable. Scott beat me several times at Battle Ship and then we played Jenga, which I never get tired of playing. Saturday, we did a bit of tidying up around the house and then I did some scrapbooking while Scott played Wii. I have a corn plant that has gotten quite tall, but through the many times it has been moved, all the leaves on the bottom had fallen off and it was very top heavy. Even staking it wasn't holding it up. I noticed that over the past year, it has grown some "baby corn plants" at the bottom. So, Scott and I whacked it off! Our office looks twice as big as it did before. Here are some pictures.

Then, I decided that I wanted to go back to Medieval Times at Discover Mills, so we bought tickets and went there on Saturday night. We had been once before with some of our neighbors and it was a lot of fun, but I wanted to go again just Scott and me. The food is really good. Here are some pictures we took. Theres one of Scott and I and one of the "king" that we took before the show. They don't like you to take pictures during the show because they have live horses and it could upset the horses and the horse and its rider could get injured.

Sunday was happy hour for the birds! A lot of times we have time to spend relaxing before we leave for church, so yesterday I opened up the blinds for the cats to watch the birds and I think that I got more entertainment out of it in the morning and in the afternoon than
the cats! Sunday morning, there were 5 finches on our bird feeder at one time. I think that some of them look like babies. Then, under the bird feeder was this chipmunk who was scavenging around picking up seeds the birds dropped. His little cheeks were getting so full! We checked outside our house for holes and didn't see any, so I guess he lives elsewhere. Scott had to work after church (they were having server problems at his office), so I was watching tv/watching the birds and I saw a humming bird getting nectar out of the flowers in my hanging basket! I didn't get a picture of it. We also have doves pretty often. I think they are mourning doves. They usually eat off the ground because they are so big, but lately, they have been sitting on the bird feeder to eat. I am afraid they are going to break it because they are so heavy!

I definitely think that this one is a baby. What do you think?

Here is one of our mourning doves. Today, I looked out and saw three of them in our yard picking up seeds out of the grass. The cats get so excited about these huge birds!

So, that was our nice, relaxing weekend. We stayed busy, but nothing was planned. Ah...

I am once again adding a disclaimer that when I save my blog, it does not look so jumbled. If anyone knows how to make it save my changes, please share. Blogging is not making me feel relaxed right now!
