Adventure Weekend

We had such a good weekend!

Saturday Sir Steve suggested (despite the cloudy gloomy wet day) that we climb in the car and take the back roads to a small town near us where he heard there was a good butcher.  We have been looking for a good butcher since we bought our freezer -- buy our meat in bulk from a good butcher... cheaper and better quality we hoped.  It was a glorious drive -- even through the rain.... just being together in the quiet countryside was what the doctor ordered.

We found the butcher -- bought some steaks and some bacon and wonderful looking hamburger... then tootled back to town picking up a quick lunch to have at home.  

OHHHHHHHHH I almost forgot -- before we went off on our back roads adventure we stopped at the School Board's science fair.  We had been informed that the lil one's science project on Energy sources had been selected to be displayed at the Fair.  WOW !!  This had been an in-class project and we had not seen it or heard that much about it.  We were surprised and proud that her project had been selected and there was no way we were gonna miss it....... even if she was with her mother and not going with us!

Sir Steve had mentioned there was a restaurant he wanted to try on Saturday evening -- down more country roads in another small town.  We had a quiet afternoon -- then I showered and got gussied up for our date night.  We didn't leave till quite late ...... along the roads we saw (much to our amazement) a huge herd of deer -- grazing in a field.  DAMN I wished I had brought my camera -- I have never seen so many deer in one place at one time!!

We parked the car in the restaurant's parking lot at 7:45 -- and the hours posted on the door said they were closing at 8:00 -- ooooooops!  We went in and asked if they would feed us -- and the serve staff laughed and said of course!  

The restaurant was like time travel........ it was an old fashioned 50's style diner........ 

We had a delightful dinner (though quick) and we were out of there and soon back on the road home.

Sunday we ran messages and napped and had a quiet afternoon -- and I was feeling a little disappointed that yet another weekend was almost finished with no adult time........... little did I know............ 

more on that tomorrow.
