Hello everyone. It is Monday evening here in New Hampshire, the end of our long Memorial Day holiday weekend. I don't think we had any sun all weekend, but it didn't seem to interfere with my plans.
This week for T Day I am sharing a little recap of my holiday weekend.
Friday after work I went and bought a few plants for my garden and then took the hubby out to dinner.
Seeing it is the official start of the summer tourist season (not the actual temperate season), and I live in a tourist area, lots of places have opened back up after being closed since fall. Pop's is this fried food place that probably hasn't changed since it first opened in the summer of 1945, and it is SO good.
And about a million calories!
But it was a holiday weekend and did feel like summer. We ordered dinner and sat outside on their deck enjoy a very warm evening.
Saturday was my nephew's wedding. Between appetizers, a delicious meal and a piece of wedding cake, I had another big meal.
We had a good seat, with my brother and his wife, my cousin and his wife, along with 2 other couples. It was nice to catch up with my cousin since I don't talk with him as frequently as I do my brother.
And here is my extended family. (And my bra strap too-eeks). That's me, my cousin and my brother. My brother is the father of the groom. The three of us spent a lot of time together as kids, and are the only 3 of this side of the family really left (of course minus our kids).
And here's the groom and his bride dancing.
In fact it was a dancing kind of event. I was dancing until after 11 PM.
And I only stopped then because they started playing music I didn't know as well. And the hubby was losing steam.
It was nice, we stayed right at the hotel where the reception was. When we were ready to leave we just had to go upstairs.
And the next morning we met up with a lot of people at breakfast.
The hotel had a very nice breakfast buffet. I had a yummy waffle with fresh strawberries and real whipped cream.
And I needed a diet coke since I was still pretty wiped out from all that dancing!
The wedding was a good 3 hours from home, and on our way back we passed by IKEA, so it seemed like a good opportunity to stop in.
The lines were pretty long since it was a really cloudy and cold Sunday. Our temperatures went from 91 on Saturday (33 degrees C) to 55 on Sunday (13 degrees C). We picked up a few little things we could use but my daughter scored a really nice returned rug for an extra 35% off.
By the time I got home I really needed a nap.
I was still dragging on this Monday holiday, and it was still cloudy, but it was at least a little warmer.
I spend a good chunk of today working in the garden,
and not eating as much food as the rest of the weekend.
My azalea is just gorgeous right now.
My Dad gave this plant about 20 years ago. At that time it was barely a foot tall. (about 30 centimeters)
This is the part of the garden I cleaned out today. It's been a few years since I did a real good clean out (other than just weeding) and the garden really needed that.
If you look on the left you can see the side I haven't cleaned, which doesn't look too bad from far away.
Up close is another story. ( Kind of like the lawn too. It looks ok from this angle, but up close it isn't much grass and moree weeds.)
Every Tuesday is T Day where we share our drink related posts. Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog and join in! All you have to do is share your drink related post with us.
Back to school now that the weekend is over. :(
This is the last week with my seniors. And 3 1/2 weeks until the year is done.
But who's counting?
Thanks for visiting, and
I hope you have a fantastic T day ladies.
