Last weekend of August recap
We went on a road trip to meet with my friend at our halfway point for an early birthday bash/paddle. I brought the picnic fixins which included a foccacia club (recipe coming soon), some BBQ chips and a dessert of chocolate chips s'more whoopie cookies. (Recipe coming if you want it)
My friend was a little reluctant to try paddleboarding at first because she didn't have a good experience her first time with others. I assured her this would be better as we'd be in a no wake zone, no ocean waves to chuck her about and she did great. (Helps to have a good teacher too)
We had a great time and were on the water for about 4 1/2 hours with a half hour break for lunch. When we were done, it was time to head into some A/C and exchange gifts. I got a new food scale (hallelujah!), new bar soap scrubbies I wanted and a gift card to our favorite restaurant on Kauai for next year's vacation. Woot! She seemed to like her gift cards too (places she gave me a heads up on) and I got her a bottle of wine because something told me there may be something to celebrate. It's looking like she may get a job that will unfortunately be many states away. While I'm happy for her, I couldn't help but cry in the car. You think of all of those missed visits or times you put off having because you just took for granted she'd always be a 2 hour drive away.
We tried to have a low key Sunday but I posted some stuff online to sell and some people bit so I made deliveries, we wandered an antique store, had groceries to grab and all that jazz so by the time we were done, I was getting pooped.
We listened to some San Francisco jazz, enjoyed our Sunday hot cocoa and blew off our meal planning responsibilities. I'll do it this morning.
MUST hit water goals this week. I slacked a little last week.
How was your weekend?
