Monday, you came too quickly again. I am linking up with Heather, etc. here.
Friday after school some students and I videotaped a 7 second dance to try to be on a Spanish teacher website – lol! One sweet girl brought me a pumpkin cold brew because she leaves school early for her co–op program and came back to school. Yum!
Erica and Elizabeth came over for a drink and it started raining. We were all laughing at how pitiful Ernie looked in the rain. We were under cover on the lower patio.
I let him in; don’t worry!
Friday evening we were celebrating my other friend Heather’s birthday at Malone’s. Get ready for some food pics, ok?
I got a raspberry mule that was really good.
Their bread and butter is good!
We tried their spinach and artichoke dip with fried lasagna noodles as dippers. OMG is all I can say.
Their salad is really good, too. It is like a BLT and it is family style for the whole table.
I ordered grilled fish and a baked potato.
Their chocolate cake was quite the spectacle and it tasted amazing, too.
Saturday morning I drank my coffee on my upper patio and I have made it a Day of the Dead theme. Post coming this week.
Then, my mom, sister, and niece arrived. We were attending a miniature show with my mom because she is into miniatures and makes little scenes with them.
Um, how did this little thing get this old so quickly?
We ate lunch at The Grape Leaf which is authentic Mediterranean food. Molly and Lena got frozen mint pomegranate lemonade.
Lena loves hummus and loved theirs.
Stuffed grape leaves:
Lena got saffron rice and
the rest of us all got vegetable biryani. It is kind of a stew, I think. It is really good and I can’t stop ordered it when I go there.
After lunch we sat on the patio with Tom and Jack, too. Jack and Mason had arrived home for Fall Break while we were out and then Mason had left for a friend’s house right away.
Sunday Tom and I took the boat out for about 3 hours and it was really nice. We are having very high temps for this time of year.
It was a good one and it was a full one!
Jack and Mason don’t have classes until Thursday so they will probably stay home at least one more day. We are watching Ted Lasso again with them and we are going to try to get them to watch Schmigadoon with us. Anyone watching it?
Today I have parent teacher conferences and will be switching back and forth between in person in mask conferences and video call conferences in 15 minute increments so that will be interesting. When I say “interesting” I mean chaotic.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
