My weekend started off with some drinks and apps after work. The original plan was to find a place to sit outside and enjoy the weather, but the place we choose, Bishop's Post, their patio was already closed. It is November in the Midwest, but the weather has been so crazy warm lately, it doesn't seem like it at all. We sat in the bar area. They have some pretty good happy hour deals. $5 glass of wine, with a good selection and a very generous pour. The people watching was the best. The bar was taken up by what looked to be regulars, men and women post retirement age, if I had to guess, and they were just having the best time socializing and having some drinks.
Saturday was such a relaxing, lazy day. I watched some Christmas movies, read and just relaxed. It really was lovely. I did finally leave the house to hit up the gym and the library. It seemed like everyone was at the library - it was just packed!
My internal alarm clock had me up at 5:00 Sunday morning...with no going back to sleep. It was nice to be up that early, because it really did make the day seem longer and like I had plenty of time to get things accomplished and still relax. It was chilly in the morning - I went out for a walk/run and had to break out an earband! During the weekends I love watching all the shows on The Food Network channel. Recently, I discovered Ayesha's Homemade, which is Ayesha Curry's show. I have seen a couple episodes now and really, really enjoy her show. Her cookbook, The Seasoned Life, is definitely going to be added to my Christmas list! I also tried out a new nail polish, Model Clicks. It's a really pretty, deep wine color. The day ended with more Christmas movies and blogging. The next few weekends are going to be busy, busy, so it was really nice to have a super relaxing one before then.
