(Long) Weekend highlights

Sat morning I watched episodes of "Sell This House" while Spouse had his personal trainer appointment. A little later my friend Chris came over. We met in a DC gay bar and found out we'd gone to high school together! He's a really sweet guy. He was spending the long weekend at the beach and since it was rainy Sat morning, he called and came over for a visit. He and Spouse & I went to lunch, then sat on the porch and talked for a while. When he left Spouse washed Jordan (the dog) and I cleaned porch and arranged the outdoor furniture in preparation for our cookout the next day. Spouse & I bought a new gas grill at Home Depot. Nothing fancy; just a larger grilling surface than our little mini charcoal Weber. That night we met Steven & Thad, one of The Bobs, and Joe P for dinner at Saketumi. I got a teensy-weensy bit tipsy on Cosmos made with Absolut Berri Acai. Dee-lish!!

Sun morning we had breakfast with Steven & Thad at the Long Neck Diner. Once back home, Spouse fired up Big Ella, picked up Steven & Thad and took them to the "Battle of the Bands" concert and car show. Our friend Rick & Nick added the 'car show' part to the "Battle of the Bands" and it wasn't very well attended but Spouse and Steven & Thad enjoyed it anyway. Instead of going with them, I went to the beach with Bryan & Jason. It was a beautiful day and I wanted to be at the beach more than at a poorly advertised car show. There was a wonderful breeze and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Back at home, I cleaned the outdoor tables and chairs and helped get food ready for the cookout. I grabbed a quick shower before our guests started to arrive. We had 16 for our cookout. The weather was ideal for being outside. There was a nice breeze and the humidity was very low. Everybody brought a dish and we all had a great time.

On Mon it seemed everyone we knew was at the beach. It was significantly hotter, but there was a nice cool breeze coming off the water. We stayed from 10:30-2:30, then had a late lunch at home, followed by showers and a nap for Spouse and email and Facebook for me. Later we had dinner with Steven & Thad and one of The Bobs. It was a great way to wrap up a long holiday weekend.

I'm assuming that "Saketumi" is a sushi place? Great name! Sounds like a good weekend too!
