Is it just me or are short weeks always the busiest? Luckily, I had plenty of time to relax over the weekend.
Friday night was super low key. Sandwiches from Wally’s Cheese Shop and a bottle of wine.
It was an early night, spent hanging on the couch watching Jeopardy, Shark Tank, and 20/20. We should probably just retire now; we’ve nailed the lifestyle.
Saturday morning, after some fruit and coffee, Andrew and I hit the gym. I survived a killer session with my trainer, Michelle. Barely.
After stopping for smoothies and a few more errands, we headed over to Amoeba Music, where Andrew wanted to trade in a bunch of old records he had cleared out. Amoeba is always an adventure. I could easily people watch in that store for hours (and I packed snacks for that very reason).
We ended up getting three new (old) records: The Temptations, Tina Turner, and Diana Ross and The Supremes.
Diana Ross and The Supremes is obviously the winner. Look at that cover art! And a cover of “Let the Sun Shine In” to top it off. Although… Tina Turner’s “Private Dancer” is a very close second.
This magazine caught my eye… Remember jaw breakers?
Back at home, we made a couple Moscow Mules before heading out to dinner. A Moscow Mule is one of my favorite cocktails; it’s not too sweet, and the ginger cuts through the vodka really well.
Combine ingredients in a 3:2:1 ratio (vodka:ginger beer:lime juice) with ice in a shaker. Give it a couple shakes (but not too many or the carbonation of the ginger beer will pop the lid off) and serve.
Clearly, I should have finished getting ready before the cocktails.
Sunday started with some blueberry pancakes! Recipe coming soon…
After that, it was errands after errands after errands. Farmers market, Community Fish pickup, Trader Joe’s. I prepped a few salads to take as lunches throughout the week.
And now here we are: Monday. Although if you think of Thursday as this week’s Friday, that kind of makes today a Tuesday…
