Happy Monday! It’s been a minute since I shared a regular weekending type of post, I’m feeling inspired today to do that since I have actual weekend type things to share.
We had Friday Night Snacks. It’s my favorite way to wind down the week, sitting in our chairs, me with a martini and Dale with a beer, catching up and listening to music and eating great cheese along with other things. It’s a routine that is also a ritual and it’s really important to me.
On Saturday, I visited Home Goods and . . . did not buy any pillows! If you thought I was going to say that I did not buy anything then you don’t know about me and Home Goods, hahahaha. I did get a couple of Christmas decor things because if you don’t get it when you see it, it will be gone. Also a Christmas gift for a friend and some fresh pillow shams for our guest room.
Dale had a band job Saturday night, Jo-Ann and Sean came over and kept me company. We had some snacks and cocktails and chatted and caught up and laughed so much. It was a fun night.
On Sunday, Dale and I went into the MFA in Boston to see the Obama Portraits. They are really wonderful and I’m so glad we got to see them in person. I could have gazed at the one of Barack Obama for a long time . . . that green background, which represents his love of Chicago and his heritage, is just gorgeous. The background in my selfie is my shower curtain, I wanted you to see this beautiful floral scarf that I wore, it made me feel artsy!
After the museum, we went to a favorite south of Boston restaurant that we haven’t been to since before the start of the pandemic. I tried to capture the stunning tree outside these windows, it cast a gorgeous yellow glow over the whole room, and this photo doesn’t do it justice.
I also finished a book, started a new Musselburgh hat, and did some work in my journal for my online style course.
It all added up to a satisfying, fun, productive weekend. I hope you had a good one, too.
