I had a very busy week last week and I haven’t had a free weekend in a long time so I was very excited to do nothing. Well nothing according to my normal weekends. I mean it’s me we are talking about here. I also had Good Friday off from work and so there is a lot to cover. Let’s go!
Thursday: I got to meet up with Maddie from The Whimsy One since she was in town visiting family. Her Sister-In-Law came with her and got quite the inside look into blogging. Hopefully we didn’t bore her too much. We are a fascinating bunch though. She got me this really cute frame wipe board and chocolate. 🙂
Friday: I took Seamus for a walk early in the morning so that I could get back in time to meet the Insurance Adjuster since the damage to my basement still hasn’t been touched.
Call me a touch mad about this, I want my house back dang it. My half-bath especially. Once he left I went out for a hike. I luckily didn’t see any more snakes.
I tried to read a few blogs and comment but I was a touch behind. Trying to play catch up though. I then had to get ready for a Beer Tasting hosted by Emily but Jody and Allena from the last Sip Happens were also there. Aside from a $40 parking ticket (did I mention I hate driving and parking in Boston) the party was such fun. It was a fun group of girls and lots of laughs. I didn’t get many pictures since I was too busy laughing and having fun.
Saturday: I did some cleaning around the house, did some yard work. I still need to get some soil and plant some grass and flowers. It will continue in a few weeks. I then took Seamus for a really long walk to try and tire him out.
I have noticed that will all these walks the fatty tumors I was worried about before seem to have shrunk a bit. I then got a few movies from RedBox and made it a quiet night in with Homefront with Jason Statham. I mean holy yum. I may have fell asleep during The Counselor, so weird and not a great movie.
Sunday: I woke up really early, thank you Seamus. He was a little too hyper so I took him for another long walk. I do love getting to explore my city on these long walks but really the best part is walking by the lakes. I am almost at the half way point for the 50 Miles in April Challenge.
There are two different lakes within 1/2 mile from my house and the water was glistening and it was perfect weather. Really my idea of heaven! After grocery shopping I made some Cheesy Corn and Zucchini dish which I will be sharing the recipe for tomorrow. I also made some more eggplant Parmesan for this week, and Spanakopita. Once I test it out a little more I will share the recipe.
I may have enjoyed one of two of these too while I was cooking. They are so good and the Mango version is my next one to try.
How was your weekend? Fellow Bostonians are you off for Marathon Monday?
