A Cozy Weekend

Friday was a particularly rainy, chilly (well, chilly by Texas standards - only in the 40s today) and gloomy day, which can only mean one thing: it was my favorite kind of day. I'm not sure what that says about me, but I love the days that tend to be the least favorite days of others, as far as the weather goes. Besides the ideal whether conditions, Friday also started the weekend of Kathryn one-liners that I needed to write down.
Before we left the house to start our Friday, Kathryn told me "Mommy, I love you more than hugs and chocolate". She loves those two items very much so that put a huge smile on my face and my heart.

And then they just got better the rest of the weekend..
"Stop. Take a deep breath and relax. That's how you be a star, Mommy."
"I'm going to space, Mommy. I won't be long."
"Sometimes, I think I'm a genius." (after deciding her baby needed a Band-Aid).
Me: "What would you like for breakfast?" K:"It's a simple decision. I want a cereal bar".

She kills me.

It was E. J.'s weekend to work, so Kathryn and I stayed at home the entire weekend and only went outside a couple of times to play. Otherwise, we stayed cozy inside the house. There was a lot of movie watching, staying in our jammies (all day), playing and cooking.

Earlier this week, I saw The Pioneer Woman's recipe for Perfect Potato Soup, but as I started making it a decided to change it up a good bit. I packed it full of veggies (and topped it with a little cheese and bacon for good measure) and turned it into Potato Chowder. E. J. was a little skeptical at first, but after he took a bite he told me it tasted like Thanksgiving and was impressed with my creation or rather, recreation? Anyway, it's a keeper!
My least favorite line of the weekend was Kathryn's response to my question from today "What do you think we should do today, little Bug?" "We should clean, Mommy". Despite my displeasure, I did some cleaning too.
And now it's time for me to call it a night and rest up for a full week back at work.
