My weekend started with a haircut, which set things off on just the right foot. I’m still growing out the color – I haven’t done any highlights at all since last August. My stylist said I can tone down the blonde if I want but I’m thinking the ombre look right now is working. I’ll evaluate again in 8 weeks or so when I go in for my next cut.
And then, because Dale had a half day, and because we could, we headed to the Cape to spend the weekend with Doreen and Mark. We started with Friday night snacks, of course. We also went to see Top Gun on the big screen at The Chatham Opheum Theater, complete with a new beer from Devil’s Purse. It was a fun night out but we all agreed that Top Gun seems pretty cheesy now.
On Saturday morning we had a delicious late breakfast at The Optimist Cafe. We drove around a bit, gazed at the ocean and some amazing houses, did some shopping, and eventually wound up back at Doreen’s.
We enjoyed late afternoon cocktails by the fire and it was just so pleasant. There was good conversation and some funny stories and it was a great way to catch up.
Dinner, after much discussion, wound up being an assortment of sandwiches while we played Mexican Train. Sure, we could have gone out or made something fancy but those sandwiches were just perfect.
Dale and I got up early Sunday morning to head home in time for our Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast. I took my turn serving bacon and toast, brought the leftover OJ and milk to the COA thanks to our club’s generous donation, and then we spent a bit of time working in the new guest room, setting up the bed and making plans for furniture.
We ran a few errands, had a nice little visit over a glass of wine at Sean and Michael’s, and ending the weekend with sushi at home.
It was a mix of whirlwind activities and truly great moments with friends – everything I love in a weekend. Hope yours was great, too!
