TGIF. This has kinda been a long week. Not a particularly busy week, which is probably why it feels long.

Last evening when Spouse got home we both had the same thought. (I swear, despite our many differences, we often synchronize over the oddest things.) It was cool and rainy outside and we both felt like eating pasta. I suggested we had bow tie pasta in the cupboard, but he reminded me we had no sauce. So we decided to go out into the rain for our mutually desired comfort food.

There's no shortage of places to get pasta around here; nearly every restaurant serves it, and there are several Italian places within a 5 mile radius of our home in Lewes. But Spouse really wanted to drive 20 minutes to Oak Orchard so we could eat at Serendipidy, a restaurant that overlooks the Indian River.

When we arrived there were only a few tables occupied so we seated ourselves at a table by the window, and marveled at the choppy water. The wind had picked up and made the water dance. It really was worth the drive to be there.

Spouse had gnocchi and meatballs and I had ziti and meatballs. Delicious! The meatballs are huge and definitely homemade. Its a sin how much food they gave us! Despite neither of us being shy at the dinner table, we were only able to eat 1/2 our meals, taking the rest home in doggy boxes. We ate our left-overs for lunch today.

We're leaving tomorrow morning to head back to DC. Some friends and I are hosting a 25th high school reunion cocktail party Sat night at Kerry's house. I'm in charge of the cocktails - surprise! It should be a fun, casual, yet grown-up evening. I still can hardly believe I've been out of high school for 25 years. How could this be, when I only feel 29? Time can play tricks on ya, you know?

We'll stay overnight at Spouse's mom's house, and then come back Sun morning. She's leaving at 10am for a day trip with friends and we decided that, rather than hanging around and trying to hook up with available friends, we'd simply head back home and most likely go to the beach. The sun is supposed to return on Sunday and the temperature is supposed to reach 67 degrees, so I think we'll have some lunch when we get home, and then grab the beach chairs!
