Weekend Update

15 Feb


Wow, what a busy weekend it was for us with a party to attend on Saturday and Sunday being Valentines Day.  I feel like I need a couple of days to recover.

Friday I did a quick 20 mile bike  on the training route to Bonita Springs and back.  You can see it here, Oldman’s Workout.. The only problem I had was the wind, it was a cross wind so I had to deal with it down and back.

Friday night was a relaxing evening around the fire pit. It was just the right temp to make it a pleasant evening.

Saturday J went to breakfast with a friend so I started her Lemon Lush that we were taking to a party Saturday night.  Then I made my Mini Hazelnut Chocolate Crostinis for Valentines Day.

Saturday we went to a Cosmo Party.  J’s is a member of a ladies club, Estero Newcomers – Encore.  It was held in a friend of ours home and they hosted 56 people!  Our friend made the main course and the guests brought appetizers or deserts.  It was a cool evening but we sat outside with J’s friend Marsha and her husband.

Sunday our friends Barbara and Dick came our to our community for our Sunday Brunch at the country club.  We had to take a picture of their rental car as their children didn’t believe they had a mustang.

Of course with it being a buffet, I ate far to much but it was good.

We all went back to our house for a little card playing.

After Barbara and Dick left,  J and I shared our Valentines Day cards and opened presents.  We then went out to the fire place and had our evening cocktails.  It was another pleasant evening. The rest of the evening was just relaxing and watching TV.

How was your weekend?  Did you do anything special for Valentines Day?
