A Very Good Weekend

On Wednesday, I texted Joey saying my weekend cravings were warm weather, sleep, an everything bagel and a fun post-rental showroom lunch.  Check on everything but the bagel — maybe I’ll treat myself to one sometime during the week — so, in other words, it was a very good weekend.  I think the weather had a lot to do with it (sunshine makes me happy!), but I was just in such a good mood all weekend long.

Friday’s al fresco dinner.

Our neighbors have three cats that roam around outside and like to come keep us company when we sit out there.  Joey’s allergic, so I think this is the closest I’ll ever get to owning a cat and I’m soaking up every second.  This guy’s name is Big Chuck and this is apparently how he likes to sleep.

For whatever reason, Saturday was just a perfect-feeling day.  We were up and at ’em for a trip to our wedding rental company’s showroom so we could check out what they had to offer, plus it was warm enough to don a skirt and spend a majority of the day outside.  Meaning I ate every meal outside, walked everywhere I could, took a nap in our hammock (!!) and ignored anything that “needed” to be taken care of inside.

Thank goodness I soaked up all the warm sunshiny goodness on Saturday because Sunday was cloudy, rainy and chilly (stop teasing me, spring!).  But that just meant it was a good day for breakfast and a massage with mom.  I requested the HCJr. station, which meant a lot of Sinatra and Etta James.  I love that old music because you don’t have to wonder if that’s auto-tune or talent.

Afterwards, beer kegging commenced!  Turns out there’s a place to re-fill CO2 tanks really close to our house so we were able to conveniently do that on Saturday then work on the whole sanitizing, beer-transferring, regulating and force carbonating stuff yesterday.  If all goes well, we’ll have beer ready is a couple days.  And good thing because our fridge is completely beer-free and I’m not sure how long Joey will last.

Sunday night dinner, compliments of my sister’s Whole Foods discount and my mom’s neighbor who grows asparagus.  I was hoping a summery dinner would bring about warm weather for this week but instead, it’s going to be in the 50’s till Friday.  What can you do?

P.S. I don’t remember adding “slice finger on blender blade” to my weekend cravings list, but I most definitely did that too.  It’s proving to make a lot of things — like putting my contacts in, getting a good grip on the bathroom doorknob and typing this post! — very difficult.  My finger has a heartbeat.

Happy Monday!

  1. That picture of “Big Chuck” absolutely cracks me up. Also, I totally agree with you about this fickle weather. Spring, stop being such a tease! I’m ready for total warmth now. Please and thank you.
