A weekend without plans and obligations is a beautiful thing. There is a downside, though. No blog fodder. That’s not to say that I didn’t have fun, because I did, but I didn’t have fun that can be turned into a nice little blog post.
Sure, I had dinner at my friend Jo-Ann’s house Friday night. And sure, we drank beer and ate delicious steak. We even attempted a fire outside but the wood was wet. The conversation was great, though, and we had a fun time.
I spent Saturday planning the menu for our Halloween party and I started getting the decorations up, too. Again, fun, but also not much to blog about.
Saturday night was a wonderful evening at home with shrimp and scallops and pasta, martinis and bourbon and beer, lots of music and dancing in the kitchen with my very romantic husband. He even cleaned up after dinner and I did take a photo or two of that. I thought I might be able to cobble a blog post out of those photos but they weren’t that great. I’m sure that had nothing to do with the martinis and bourbon and beer. Ahem.
Sunday was breakfast with our daughters as Hannah was home to go to a concert this weekend. And then more Halloween party prep. There was driving around and shopping and good fun but still, nothing for the blog. Then we came home and it was chilly so Dale built the first woodstove fire of the season.
Thank goodness I took a photo.
