In some ways it was good to go this weekend instead of last weekend. Not just because I was sick, but because last weekend was so nice and sunny and this weekend is cold and rainy. By staying home last week, we were able to get the outside work done. We definitely don't want to be outside working on the yard this week! It's so cold and windy and rainy that just being outside is unpleasant and I don't want to be out there working.
And being at Ian's parents when it's not nice out means that we get to just stay inside and chat instead of doing yard work at their place. Of course we'll help out whenever we can there but not having to do that was a nice change. It made for a more relaxed visit that we enjoyed very much.
