One week ago today was my birthday and I spent the day on my own…
There’s a lot to be said for a weekend that is so good you need to write 3 posts to share it all. That’s what’s about to happen here, though, so just relax and read and reminisce with me.
We headed up to Kim’s on Friday when Dale got out of work. It was a bit of a tedious ride north but we got there in time to go to Kim and Ken’s usual Friday night spot, The Moat. Of course a flight of beer was in order for Dale. Add to that a Lemon Drop for Kim and a Manhattan for me and we forgot all about that long ride.
Kim and Ken have a lovely home and a very sweet guest room. Kim decorated it with flowers and stocked it with our favorite bourbon and some chocolates, too. Way to make us feel welcome!
On Saturday morning I got the privilege of being the very first person to take a shower in this newly finished bathroom. Ken worked so hard to get this finished and our approaching visit definitely put him under the gun. I’m glad to say that it is fabulous – beautiful and stylish and very swanky.
Once we had eaten a delicious breakfast we headed out for some adventures. We visited Cathedral Ledge and were amazed by the beautiful views all around.
We also found, much to my distinct pleasure, the chalet my family rented one summer back in the early 70s. It’s not far from Kim and Ken’s house at all and I recognized it immediately. What a trip down memory lane that became for me!
We spent the remainder of the afternoon soaking up the sun in Kim and Ken’s backyard, playing bananagrams, drinking tequila, and eating cheese and crackers. It was beautiful and warm and it felt absolutely great to be outside with friends, chatting and laughing.
Come back tomorrow and I’ll tell you about what we did Saturday evening.
