I haven’t written a weekend wrap up post in ages, probably because, like many of you, my weekends are all pretty much the same … I stay home. This weekend, though, felt different. Maybe it was the glorious weather, maybe it was knowing more and more of my friends are getting vaccinated, or maybe I’m just getting used to this lifestyle. Whatever the reason, here’s what we did.
I declared Friday, the last day of winter, an unofficial pajama day. And by pajamas I mean flannel pants and a long sleeved t-shirt. Jackie was over in the afternoon and we watched movies and snuggled on the couch. He shared our Friday Night Snacks (the kid loves cheese and crackers and salami!) and then went home with him parents. Dale and I caught up over cocktails and music and watched some television.
On Saturday we officially hit the campaign trail for my reelection as town selectman. Things are way less stressful for me as I’m unopposed on the ballot but I still want to make the effort to get my name out there and let people know I appreciate their support. Dale and I drove around town for 3 hours setting up campaign signs. It was a gorgeous day and we had a lot of laughs which made it not feel like work at all. We hit the local butcher shop on the way home for steaks and also picked up some burgers and fish for future dinners.
We had cocktails outside and a socially distanced visit with Dale’s dad. He’s fully vaccinated now but Dale and I aren’t so we are still being careful around him. Once it got chilly we headed in for music and dinner prep and some dancing in the kitchen. It was a pretty perfect evening, I must say.
Sunday was another glorious day and we had brunch on the deck for the first time this year. We read and relaxed and then spent the afternoon doing some yard work and puttering around. We did the same cocktails on the deck routine only this time dinner was burgers on the grill, hopefully the first of many this season.
Now that we can be outside again I am so looking forward to being with friends … just a few more weeks now!
How was your weekend?
