I may have worked part of the week but I ended strong with a fun weekend.
On Friday, we went to Castle Island with Hannah, Jessica, and Jackie. For those of you who don’t live in the Boston area, Castle Island is not, despite it’s name, an island. It actually used to be an island, but in 1928 a strip of land was added to make is accessible by car. Parking is free, a rarity around here, and it’s a beautiful area to walk, watch the planes land at Logan, and enjoy the good weather. Most people eat at Sullivan’s, the only restaurant there, but the line was crazy long so after we walked around and Jackie played at the playground we left and headed to Tony’s Clam Shoppe at Wollaston Beach. The fried seafood was such a treat and the rum punch didn’t disappoint either.
On Saturday night, Dale and I attended the Plymouth County League of Sportsmen Annual Banquet. We, along with many other members of our family, were invited guests as they awarded my late brother-in-law Randy with a Lifetime Achievement Award. They had many pieces of Randy’s artwork on display and it was really touching to have him honored in this way. Some of it was emotionally challenging, of course, but it was wonderful to be with our family and have this experience and know how many people Randy touched and that he is still remembered.
On Sunday, I went to a bridal shower for Jo-Ann’s future daughter-in-law. This wedding was supposed to happen in 2020 so to say we were excited for this day to finally arrive would be an understatement! It was a lovely affair with yummy food and good company and a very happy future bride. Showers are definitely not my thing (let’s face it, it’s really only fun if you’re the one getting the gifts hahaha) but I’m glad I could be there to share in the happiness of the day.
It was a lot of people-ing for this introvert so I’m grateful for the time I was able to spend reading and knitting and hanging out at home.
How was your weekend?
