There was more to the weekend than pie – although that pie was pretty great!
There was Friday Night Snacks under the pergola. It had been raining and crappy all day but the sun came out at 6pm, just in time for us to head outside. It was lovely. When we came in we played Phase 10 and listened to music and it was perfect.
Dale spent a lot of time last week getting the deck stained and the railings painted, mostly because I told him I wanted the furniture back out there on Saturday. (My man works best with a deadline.) So on Saturday afternoon he and I set up the furniture. Our outdoor living room is ready for action! We got to spend some quality time out there on Saturday evening before heading in for a delicious dinner of scallops.
Sunday was relaxing and quiet and rainy. Hannah and I baked the pie in the morning and then late in the afternoon Jessica came over with Jackie and Hannah came back and made us all dinner. She joked that it was probably going to be the adult version of burnt toast in bed but she was wrong because everything she made was terrific. It started with some really great green goddess dip and veggies. Luckily I had the perfect napkins (a gift from my friend Rose) for the occasion because I certainly have taught my children that message!
And that’s a wrap on the weekend.
