How to spend a Sunday...

...take a whole bunch of relatives you haven't seen in a long, long time... ...make a batch of amazing pizza dough and a bunch of toppings to make scrumptious pizzas in the wood fired oven with. ...have Arizona deliver a breathlessly beautiful day...robins egg blue skies, flower scented breezes, fresh green leaves on trees budding out and things to pick in the garden... ...and laugh and talk and eat pizza and remember and dream and eat pizza and hug and enjoy and eat pizza...



...and be so utterly exhausted that you feel almost boneless like a small child just waking up from a nap...

...and be so exquisitely happy that you had another perfect day of a three-day in a row weekend of almost total perfection.

For some weird reason I decided to tell everything backward...so tomorrow is going to be the surprise wedding. Which might take two posts...it was soooo amazing and romantic and unique!

Don't forget to enter the giveaway for the "Too cool for school clock"!

And now, since I am almost boneless with tired...I'm gonna wiggle my way down the hall on my stomach and go watch some inane TV.

Sigh.

Dear Jenny,
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your comment about the red button. It's one of those things that I've had in my mind for a while, and it's nice to know I'm not the only one.
Your blog is so cheerful. I'm looking forward to that wedding posting, but the pizza party was plenty of entertainment. I need to go and fix dinner now. You've made me hungry!
Blessings to you.

inane tv on a sunday night is a must! perfect way to wind down after a busy weekend!

RNSANE said...

What a weekend you've had, Jenny. I think it'll take you all next week to unwind!

~Kim~ said...

Its been a long time since I had a day like that with family, and in my book they are just as much fun as a snow-day--And I am crazy about snow-days!!! :-)

My name is PJ. said...

Matlock, I love your whole outdoor area - and the pizza oven? Chef Stu would have a party with that baby!

He grills pizza sometimes. Have you ever had pizza done on the grill. YUM.

How many days of rest will you give yourself after the momentous weekend? You worry me.

Christine said...

O.M.G. that is the greatest post! Exactly how I love spending warm weekends...with family and food.
Your pictures are amazing!!
I L-O-V-E that oven!! Awesome.

Yaya' s Changing World said...

You're right, Jenny. That is a marvelous way to spend a Sunday. What I wanna' know, though is why you didn't just hop on your horse and run summa' that pizza up my way? I would've enjoyed it at least as much as you and your friends did.

I have a life-size image of you wiggling your way down the hall. I'll be laughing all day.

Thanks for the visit and follow. I really like your blog. Especially the yummy looking pizza. Now I'm craving it.

Awww, you're in Arizona. We don't have a pizza place that cooks pizza in a wood fired oven. Hmmm, *wonder how much plane tickets will cost* (^_^)

I think I'm caught up reading all your posts. I was dying to see how the party turned out. It looks like such fun with the airplanes all around. I am so glad that you were happy with the way everything turned out. Your dad looks cute in his tux. The pizza looks wonderful and I'm so jealous of your good weather.

I can't wait the hear about the wedding. Just reading all the things you've done in the past few days makes me exhausted!

RNSANE said...

Jenny, I think I am going to have to opt out of this alphabet thing. Again, I've screwed up. I spent over three hours on this post, uploading pictures from various sites, making sure they were domain free, etc, and then, again, I did the Mclinky thing and I though I was putting my blog address in right and I guess I didn't.

My post is "C is for California" and I put:
http://rnsane.blogspot.com/2010/02/c-is-for-california

What should I have put?
