As the first weekend after the holiday break I had high hopes for this weekend. I pictured lots of reading, knitting, and relaxing. I also pictured quiet moments with Dale, delicious food and cocktails, some games and TV time. Oh, and the movies. And guess what? It all came to pass.
There was knitting – much of it with a cat in my lap.
There was food. Fondue Date Night on Friday.
And snacks and pizza on Saturday.
There were games. I kicked Dale’s ass at Phase 10.
There was a trip to the movies to see Spotlight – which was fantastic, by the way. And the Boston accents? Spot on. Our movie excursion was followed by a truly lovely evening at Alden Park, a nearby and new-ish place that I’ve been anxious to try. The martinis come with blue cheese stuffed olives, the sliders are delicious and the pulled pork wontons are fabulous.
Not pictured: reading, quiet moments, snuggling on the couch, dancing to Van Morrison, singing along to lots of our favorite songs, trips to the Y, and a bit of local political schmoozing. All good, just not particularly photogenic.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Tell me – what did you do?
