As another weekend comes to a close, I am going to spend a few moments with a quick summary for you. I had the Lobster and Gouda Grilled Cheese with the crock of Lobster Poutine in good company at Claudine’s Eatery Friday evening. We had family visiting this past weekend, and it was very nice to spend time together.
Saturday started slowly with a visit to Sweet Belgian Desire for a late brunch. I had the Omelet Florentine with a side Greek salad and coffee. It was delicious and on plan. We then ran a few errands, and I bought a stability ball. I will let you know how I make out with that purchase once it is assembled and I get a chance to try it out.
We then had a BBQ Saturday evening. My guests were quite happily entertained with 2 back to back live stream concerts from home. I also enjoyed watching them. The Celtic Colours International Festival is well known for the music and concerts held yearly in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. If you love traditional Cape Breton music and want to experience it firsthand, I highly recommend planning a trip to see some of the shows live. If you can’t be there in person, like us, they pick one concert per night of the Festival and live stream it online. They don’t reveal which one until the day of the broadcast. It is available for 24 hours after the live stream is ended. I started the Friday show and the Grand Finale was able to be watched also last night. I am glad we found it, it was a pleasant way to spend time together. I am able to use the tv and stereo for my computer, so it was a full-sized concert with surround sound that we watched from my living room. It is nice to be able to watch events like that on my TV with excellent sound quality.
This morning started with coffee and tea at my kitchen table. My family left for the next visit after that. It wasn’t a rushed morning. Roy and I watched a couple of TV shows together, and then we went to get a few groceries. After this, I took a nap. Sometimes, Sunday afternoon is meant for taking a nap. Today was one of those days. When I woke up, a friend had delivered some coffee K-cups for my Keurig. I will gladly add them to my stash, and enjoy them. We then went out to supper. I was craving Chinese food. Since we were planning to go to Oromocto for Kingsman: The Golden Circle to see it in the early show, we chose to eat supper at Diamond House Chinese Restaurant, also in Oromocto. We had combos and enjoyed the meal. We had to hurry for the movie, it had just started when we got there. We met up with our friends, chatted a bit in the parking lot after, and came home.
We ate out more than usual this weekend. However, it was not an ordinary weekend. I am going to be cooking tomorrow as I am not going to make it to Zumba, and I have things that need to be made. I have leftover tossed salad saved in 2 mason jars to help start the week’s lunches off in the right direction. I still have my picnic lunch ingredients too. All was not lost in the planning this weekend. I can also say that the cleaning is progressing nicely. The dishes are being kept up and I still have a lot of organizing to do. I made progress throughout the week like I needed to do. The trick will be to start back at it right away this week. Today, I needed to rest for the upcoming week. And that is a wrap for this week. I think I won again. 🙂
