I keep trying to have low-key weekends but it never happens. Well, ok, Friday wasn’t too bad. I worked all day then got home, swam, made spaghetti, then I went and got Chipotle (because I don’t much care for spaghetti). Soon after, sitting down to watch a movie, I found that I felt exhausted. Like, could not stay awake at all. Sigh. But this allowed me to get up Saturday and get in a good 3 mile run. Got the pool cleaned, groceries shopped, then we had a light lunch before heading to a birthday party down the street for Ash’s friend’s son. Kids had a great time on the bouncy house/slide, even though it did rain on and off. We got home with about 30 minutes to spare…
… before Ash and I went to the first annual Mac and Cheese fest downtown. Held at a new-ish bar in an area that people are seemingly trying to revitalize, they had 5 vendors with different macs and it was all you can eat plus one free beer. There’s a food truck named the Tally Mac Shack that people have told me is amazing and I can say now, it is. They had a basic mac (Cheesus take the wheel) and one with a shrimp boil flavor and sausage that were both delicious. The next best was from a place in the college area named Township. My personal fave though was from a catering company: a pork slider with mac on a Hawaiian roll. If I could have shoved any more food into my gullet I would have eaten ten of those.
The thing lasted 6-9 but we ended up back home a little before 8. We were both full and tired and didn’t feel like doing much else! Sunday we got up and cleaned and mowed and swam before Ash and I went up to a Mexican place to watch the World Cup final game. We knew France would win but cheers to Croatia for giving them a good run. I think I’ve realized how much more I enjoy soccer now – more than NBA (my first spots love) and more than NFL (which is turning off viewers because of politicizing everything.)
I will say, I took a good nap yesterday before having pizza for dinner and then feeling pretty blah. Diet starts today!!
Okey dokey pokies, this week’s theme is songs with numbers in them so here we go.
And you know me, VOLBEAT is God:
