Vacation? Or Weekend?

We love our friends and our adventures, but Big D and I were excited to have a few days with no guests, plans, or obligations. Our weekend To Do List: replace a burned out kitchen lightbulb, give Fletch a bath, and re-arrange living room furniture.

We spent Friday night on our tiny balcony, and later on the couch, with some wine.

Saturday afternoon we toured Port City Brewing with friends, and then took a nap. Then we spent time on our tiny balcony, and later on the couch, with some wine.

There are worse ways to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Yesterday we kayaked at National Harbor, ate a late brunch, and cruised around in the Cobra. We walked over to the Dangerfield Marina to watch the sun set. And then, we spent time on our tiny balcony, and later on the couch, with some wine.

Ahhhhh.

Kayking at National Harbor

Sure, there’s work, and Army stuff, and blah, blah, blah. And there are tough things going on when it comes to the health of our aging family members. But most of the time: I’m ridiculously lucky, and know it. That’s not bragging, because I realize what a charmed life I lead and am SO VERY thankful. Other than going for a run, Big D and I were together more than 48 hours. We were both sad when it was time to head in separate directions this morning. And after 20 years together, I think that’s really saying something.

And now, we really need to get to that To Do List. Right after we spend time on our tiny balcony, and later on the couch, with some wine.

so much for getting a Christmas card photo
