This weekend was . . .
A full Friday. Errands, food shopping, exercising, catching up on Grey’s Anatomy.
Assembling our new deck furniture just in time to enjoy a glass of wine outside before a delicious dinner of lemon rosemary roast chicken, garlic smashed potatoes and oven-roasted local asparagus.
A relaxing Saturday. Shopping for accessories for the deck, reading for a bit while lounging on that very comfortable new furniture.
And spending the late afternoon and early evening at a cook out – the first of the season. It was hosted by my first husband and his girlfriend and we all had a great time. Our divorce is much more successful than our marriage was and – here’s the important part – all of us (and by us I mean Dale & Rick and I) being friends is the best thing ever for Hannah.
Mother’s Day started with an early morning run and then coffee and berries on the deck. Prepping potato salad for the afternoon. Phone calls, texts and visits from the kids.
A quick drive to Cape Cod to spend the rest of the day with Tom and Anne at their campsite. Wine. Stories. Laughing. Catching up. A delicious dinner of salmon, potato salad and asparagus.
And then home for a snuggle under a quilt on that new furniture. That might have been the best part of the whole day.
It was a good weekend.
