And then by about 4 PM, it was dark again and then? Yeah, it hailed. Big hail, for the likes of our town:
It came on us fast and left fast; led the way for more torrential rain. BUT, that wasn’t all my weekend was comprised of. No, Ash and I had hibachi on Friday and then saw the Die Hard movie, which was pretty good. Not amazing but it’s an action movie; what more are you looking for? We had about an hour before picking up the kids so you know what we did? We totally took a nap. Ahh, wonderful. I cannot really remember the rest of the night; it was most definitely raining.
Without a soccer game Saturday morning, we hung around, puttered. Around 10 or so, we headed to Costco and then I picked up a pizza. Really, we did very little on Saturday other than watch the NFL combine stuff. I always like to watch that; it’s like watching a training sequence in a movie. Went to bed kind of early that night because Ash had a marathon Sunday morning. (P.S. I am sleeping much better now; the cold or whatever seems to have passed. THANK GOD.)
So yes, Ash got up at the ass-crack to head to the Wakulla state forest. This was his third marathon on six weeks and I THINK he’s a wee bit burned out. But they have all been training runs for his 50k in April. While he was out busting his hump, the boys and I went to a local place for breakfast and then Publix but oh, that was when the weather got magically better. We walked the dogs and enjoyed it while we could. I watched the NASCAR race in the afternoon. I haven’t really watched it in a while but I grew up on that stuff. I have an aunt who went to multiple races per year with her then husband. I had race shirts from various tracks and drivers all throughout my childhood. I have even gone to a few races. By far, the most fun thing is tailgating of course. And while I watched yesterday, I bemoaned the fact I couldn’t drink a beer. Oh, woe! But I take solace in the fact that summer here lasts all the way through September so I still have some time later this year for those cold beers on hot days.
After a big dinner of filet, mashed potatoes, and corn, we hunkered down to watch the Oscars. I was feeling really awake and yet, somehow fell asleep in time to miss the last three (and biggest) categories. Though, the winners were exactly who I had figured: Lawrence, Lewis, Argo. Overall, good weekend. Though I do still feel (as I posted on Facebook last week) that I need to get out of town, if only for a day. I need to do something!
Oh, I like this week’s theme: songs that bring back a good memory whether it be songs, commercial jingles, etc.
I have so many, you guys!
I chose this one because when I was young, I listened to the Beatles a lot, because my dad did. And I remember when he told people this was “our” song.
This song reminds me of my best friends in late middle school and all the jokes we had. This one was a great song for that; plus there was guy in our classes who looked like the lead singer.
In high school, I had a friend who liked a lot of old things and we’d ride around in his 70s Lincoln Mark V and listen to classic music. We blasted this song!
There are plenty more I could choose but three is good for today.
Don’t forget to come back on Wednesday for the We Want to Know meme!!
