Okay, so the weekend is over and I have to say I wish I could have another one! I guess I'll have to wait until Friday again, like I always do, and than I can be supercharged for a nice Saturday/Sunday all over again. *Sigh* It's the waiting that is the hardest part (Nod to Tom Petty).
Friday night it rained! I love the rain. I don't know why, but the sound of rain outside my window does something to me... It kicks in my autumn/winter instincts, and the next thing I know I feel like getting under the blankets and - Hmmm.. Maybe I better not go into details here... My wife reads this journal and it might not be a good idea to throw out too much information... :) Just let your imagination wander, I am sure you'll get the idea!
Saturday we went to Mindy's niece's birthday party. It was at the park... The afternoon after it rained... Believe it or not, the grass wasn't as soaked as I thought it would be. There were a few foilks there who I didn't know, and as of today I still don't know them, but that's okay. Mindy's best friend Pennie and her two girls were there. She has two very sweet little girls - I hope if when Mindy and I have kids that our parenting skills yield such successful results. Anyway, we barbequed chicken breasts that Mindy marinated overnight - they were very tasty! Lemon juice, olive oil, basil, thyme, chopped garlic, and some salt and pepper. I highly recommend that you try it! Later that night we watched the baseball game. We were conflicted about who we wanted to win, because Mindy's company gave oput tickets to see the last game of the series to some of the employees, and the ass-kisser next door had scored a ticket to see the game in their company suite. We really wanted the Angels to win, since we live in SoCal. But if the Giants had won, than the series would have been over and the jerk next door would not have been able to go to the game and brag about it.
Sunday we slept in. As a matter of fact, we totally forgot to turn our clocks back, so when we woke up and the time on the cable box didn't match my alarm clock I was a bit confused. After sorting that out, we read the paper, played with Dixie and Spike, and than we got ready to go over to Pennie's place. When we got there, we carved pumpkins, watched football, and hung out. We walked over to TGI Friday's to watch the baseball game (Man was it crowded!), and ended up walking back to Pennie's not too long afterward. I am not into crowds. Her husband, Ivan, works at Friday's so he got a bunch of food and brought back to the house and we watched the game. During the walk we missed three runs scored by the Angels. What a game! Normally, I am not a big baseball fan, but I really enjoyed the game a lot. I guess they won because the ultimate Ass-Monkey was there, in the company suite, rallying for the team. He he he...
So, that is my weekend in a nutshell. How was yours?
