Hi! How are you today? Did you have a nice weekend? I had a very relaxing weekend and after the whirlwind of Rhinebeck it was just what the doctor ordered.
Friday night Dale and I had a “date night” that basically consisted of dinner at home (tenderloin, mmm) and listening to music. And Saturday we spent some time together and then Dale had to go away over night for a band job. I had the evening to myself, my knitting, and the Red Sox, along with some clay pot shrimp curry.
But truly the best part of my weekend was yesterday. I woke up early and rested and decided to have coffee and read in bed. I settled in with Laurie Perry’s new book, Drunk, Divorced and Covered in Cat Hair and before I knew it I had finished 3 cups of coffee and the book. Yes, I read the book cover to cover in one sitting – it’s that good.
Not quite ready to give up the comfiest spot in the house, I grabbed the knitting and slipped a movie into the DVD player. Catch and Release isn’t bad although I don’t think it’s about to win any awards. It was a great part of my morning, however.
Before I knew it Dale was home and we decided to take advantage of the beautiful fall day by taking the dog for a walk. It felt great to be outside in the crisp air and I even got to wear my Peace Fleece Everyday Cardigan for the first time this season.
We ended the day with a terrific local dinner of fresh striper, caught by Dale’s brother Randy, and steamed potatoes and beets from our CSA.
And, oh yeah, the Red Sox won the World Series.
It was a great day.
