This is the year of work that I've vowed to fill my weekends with fun. If my weekends are fun then I have something to look forward to all week long...making myself believe it's worth going back every Monday. I don't know why but I just had a negative feeling about this work year, and my feeling seems to showing some truth. Sigh.
Our plans were all laid out till the Cardinals turned on their "October Red," turning a dinner and movie theater night into a pot of soup and a baseball game on the TV. Long game! Fantastic game! The Boys of Summer just know how to stretch it into the Fall. We really are nerds--Princess A, King Ralph and I, whooping and hollering at the TV, cheering and texting player thoughts to relatives and friends. High fiving in the living room. Maybe not needs, but fans?!
Saturday's first stop: The Pond Unvailing Party, was moved to Sunday for better weather. The second stop remained in check. By 5:30pm I had a home brew beer in my hand under a dimly candle lit tent, with polka music blasting from our Jaw Bone speaker. Princess A baked up a themed treat for the annual Octoberfest.
Before beer and treats there was laundry and the movie Gone Girl to fit in. Which never got fit in. I just hope I won't be disappointed when I finally do fit it in. I get that way when I've read the book, then I ramble angry thoughts under my breathe the whole time. I'm not a fan of changing the characters into anything other than what the author gave us in type. Okay so the movie never happened. The beer did happen
The chocolate porter on tap was the best chocolate beer I've ever had! I found a delicious blue berry ale in that lid popping cooler of craft beers.
The Princess A cookies where gone before I had my first bite of brat. But haha
Sunday came and we had breakfast with Lin and her men at Blondies on Wash Ave. Then it was off to the pond party...
where pond gazing was the acceptable entertainment...
followed by gorging on delicious foods, sipping vodka punch, and finally topping our stomachs off with yummy desserts...that sent us into food comas
It's weekend memories filled with time spent with friends and family and loaded with fun that made Monday with a headache doable.
Four more days and I can do fun all over again!
