It's go time for the biggest feast of the year and I hope your prep…
My weekend wasn’t my typical weekend – I had to work on Saturday. I know, right? I still made the most of it, though. You’re shocked, I’m sure.
Starting in the top left and working across and then down . . .
Friday night was our usual Friyay of cocktails and snacks. Cheese & crackers. Cucumbers topped with herb cheese. Roasted tomatoes with goat cheese. And a martini. Maybe two.
Saturday I got up bright and early so that I could meditate and journal before going to work. I’m focusing on this month’s One Little Word prompt and thinking to myself, every morning, about how I can shine as the day unfolds. One way to shine is to cleanse my face with some awesome products (hullo, Rodan and Fields) and put on some fabulous makeup from Sephora.
I was home by mid afternoon and we voted and then went shopping for a new refrigerator. Holy crap but there are a lot of options and things to consider these days. I think I’d rather buy a car – it would be simpler.
We rewarded ourselves and soothed our overwhelmed minds by ending the afternoon with drinks and dinner at a local restaurant we haven’t been to before. It came highly recommended by Dale’s boss and my friend Tom and we were not disappointed. Excellent Manhattans, fresh oysters and delicious fried seafood. I think we’ve found a new hang out.
On Sunday we started making lists for all of our upcoming home projects. There’s painting to be done and furniture to shift around. Light fixtures to update and outdoor work to complete. Let’s just say April vacation is going to be very different this year than it has in years past.
Finally, in that bottom right corner, I think it’s best if I just share with you what I said on Instagram when I posted that photo.
Carole: Let’s cover the bathroom vanity in concrete. What could go wrong?
Dale: I’m gonna need a beer for this.
I’ll keep you posted on this one.
How was your weekend?
