After our fast paced vacation and a full work week, a weekend at home was just what we needed. And it’s just what we got!
Friday was quite warm and we were able to have our snacks on the deck. It stayed warm enough for us to enjoy the entire night out there, in fact.
I got some new shoes to get me through this awkward time of year when it’s too late in the season for boots but still too early for flip flops. Pictures of what was in the boxes to follow at some point.
Saturday was also warm and we were able to take the Mustang out for a ride when we ran errands. One of those errands involved choosing paint chips for the kitchen which is exciting but also confusing.
We got home just in time for cocktails on the deck again. I did my take on the pimento cheese toast from Husk and it was pretty close to what we had. I sliced and toasted a baguette, spread homemade pimento cheese on top and then added a bit of crisp ham and chopped dill pickles. It was so good I made a second batch and that was our dinner.
Jo-Ann joined us for the evening and we played Mexican Train and had a great night.
The weather changed for Sunday and it was chilly. Dale mowed the lawn while I took care of fun things like bills and staring at paint chips. Sean came over and surprised us with a pan of Northern style cornbread to, as he said, “welcome us home by taking us back.” It was delicious and as close to what we had at Husk as I think you could get.
We wound down the afternoon with a snack tray and cocktails, Call the Midwife and Grace & Frankie.
It was a perfect weekend at home. How was your weekend?
