Bugs & Roger arrived Fri night around 10:00. After showing them the new bathroom and closet/dressing room space, we had cocktails and started getting caught up on each other's lives. We had Blue PomeCosmos, one of my faves. Yummm...
Sat morning Bug & Roger and I had coffee, talked, and read on the screened porch while Spouse went for his workout. When he returned we headed out. We wanted to go to a couple shoe stores, but the holiday traffic was bumper-to-bumper, so we abandoned that mission and had lunch, then went to the liquor store. There was more talking, laughing, reading, and listening to music on the screened porch. We went for a walk to the beach, and then returned home for cocktails. Roger had a Sidecar martini while Bugs and I had green apple martinis.
Sat evening we went to Thad's birthday party. It was really fun! There was a nice mix of friends we already knew and others we met for the first time. Bugs & Roger seemed to enjoy themselves as well. Steven made all the food, which was tres yummy, and our friend Bob made the birthday cake. Thad made a special request for a 4-layer cake with alternating layers of carrot and spice cakes with cream cheese filling and icing. The cake was amazing! Note to self: get Bob to make my next birthday cake.
Mon morning after coffee and relaxing we went for another walk around town. The temperature was slightly cool, the humidity was low, and there was a nice breeze so we walked through town and along the canal. For lunch we had a cook out: burgers and dogs on the grill, potato salad, cole slaw, a fabulous tomato/nectarine salad Roger made without a recipe, baked beans and chips. We watched a movie, had the rest of the Lemon Dream pie, and hung out some more before deciding to go for a walk on the boardwalk. It was very breezy and water was rough, but it great walking weather. On the way back home we stopped for a bite to eat. Bugs & Roger loaded their things into their car and we bid them a safe and easy drive home. Spouse & I watched TV and then went to bed.
