The official first weekend of summer
It was busy, busy, busy but fun. Saturday morning I grabbed the Golden Girls and we headed out to Parrsboro. It wasn't a great day for it - rainy and cold - like sweatshirt AND a jacket cold but I wanted to go anyway. The Harbourview Restaurant is open for the season. A little seafood place on the beach with the best food. I have missed their scallop burgers all winter. Then a bit of retail therapy at Sweet Briar Boutique. A tiny little shop with the cutest things. Joan, the owner, takes care of Mom so we can shop. We both got new handbags and I found a funky starfish necklace and earrings.
And I did get a chore finished that I procrastinated for weeks. I tackled our closets and switched out all the seasonal clothes. The washer and dryer was going full tilt all weekend but now it is all done and put away. Our closets haven't been so nicely organized since last year!
I did decide not to put out all the patio furniture yet. As I mentioned, we are getting a new roof. If the weather forecast would give us a few days in a row without rain - the guys could start. I don't want my chairs and cushions covered in roofing crap.
This afternoon I am invited to my friend Terri's to gossip and drink "special" coffees on her new deck. And then we are off to a family and friends dinner.
I looked at my new hooking project several times this weekend. I looked at it - I didn't pick it up. Next week.
