I have to tell you, I didn’t take many photos this weekend. It was still a great time but, for whatever reason, I was not as inspired to document it in photographs as I typically do. I do have enough to share with you and I think they will give you a pretty good idea of what we did.
Thursday we had a snow day. Dale was home and I was home and it was nice to relax and spend the day together, reading, catching up on some tv and just hanging out. By the time the evening rolled around we settled in with cocktails and snacks and games. There was clearing of snow to be done but we did it together and that made it fun – even when I lost my balance and landed in a snow bank!
Friday was my usual errand day but Friday night, in a break from our usual routine, we had Shawn and Jo-Ann over to play Mexican Train. Usually we guard our Friday nights but since we had basically had Friday night on Thursday, well, we figured we could have Saturday night on Friday. I’m sure that makes no sense but just trust me – it all worked out. And see what we did there? We built a wall around the Mexican Train. Heh.
Saturday night Dale’s band was playing and we headed to that together. I made deviled eggs and heart shaped hand pies and we enjoyed a good ole small town Saturday night. There was plenty of dancing and great music and good company.
It was Sean’s first time seeing the band and it was fun to share the experience with him.
On Sunday we slept late and made plans to go out for Valentine’s Day in the mid afternoon. We figured drinks and apps at one of our special places but the snow started in earnest before we went out – so we stayed in. It wasn’t what we planned and I didn’t have anything special for us to snack on, but I managed to pull together some treats from things I had in the freezer. And you know what? It wound up being pretty sweet.
It’s awfully nice when you get snowed in with your favorite person, you know?
