So let’s get to an update then a preview.
Not a lot has been happening around these parts really. Mom is still working on her recovery and the Hubby and I try to visit as often as we can. We usually have coffee with her Saturday and Sunday mornings and see her 3-4 weeknights depending on what else is happening.
It’s been 2 weeks since our 4 legged house guest has arrived and she seems to be getting slightly better at listening. Maggie is a beagle/boxer mix and belongs to our Best Friend or ALA (Alternative Lifestyle Assistant), think Baby Hippo with fur that barks, Maggie Not our ALA. Our friend had some surgery and since she lives on a 2nd floor condo was pretty much house bound until she was able to do the stairs again. So she asked if Maggie could have a sleep over vacation with the Greyhounds for a couple weeks. It hasn’t been too bad with her here but I am sure Duncan will be happy when she goes home. He likes his cousin but prefers the quiet much more.
We had our first Greyhound adoption group Meet and Greet last weekend. It was in conjunction with a local Animal Welfare group and was held on the green in one of the nearby towns. It was a good turnout for them, a little cloudy and chilly but we survived. Our next one is this weekend at a pet store sandwiched between Trader Joe’s and Starbucks.
Also this past Saturday was the annual Drum Corps awards dinner. The food was good, the company at our table was very nice as well. I received an award for 1 Parade Miss. We ate, we drank, we laughed, we went home. A good night.
So that’s the wrap up now on to the preview. Today marks 1 week until my Birthday. The weekend is when the celebrating begins, I haven’t decided on when it will end.
Saturday after the Meet and Greet the Hubby and I are headed off to New York City for an afternoon/evening of fun and frivolity. First up is the Hubby’s part of the fun which is a stop at The Baconery. He ok WE love bacon and a visit to a store that sells nothing but baked goods made with bacony goodness, how can you go wrong?
The next stop on the tour de NYC will be dinner. A twitter friend of mine Craig (Who will soon be an IRL friend, once our schedules align) upon request sent me some links to a few places that he and his Husband like. After perusing the menus and links he sent I settles on a place called 5 Napkin Burger. I think what sold me aside from the eclectic menu, was the Deep Fried Pickles and Pastrami they offer as an appetizer.
After dinner we will wander over for the main event of the evening. I went ahead and bought myself tickets to see Kinky Boots. Ever since I saw it was going to open on Broadway I vowed to get tickets and see this show. We have some friends who have seen it and all loved it. I am very much looking forward to it. I will recap the show after in another post.
Sunday we move on to Brunch with the gaggle that we always have brunch with. Since this turn the hosts are the couple getting married in just about a month we decided to have another brunch field trip to a local restaurant. The food is always delicious, and honestly how can you go wrong with endless Bellinis. Sunday also marks the week #13 out of 16 for bowling, winding down. I will miss it but will be happy to have my sunday nights back especially with summer coming.
So far nothing is planned for Monday night which is Birthday Eve, but Tuesday which is my actual exiting of the birth canal day, the hubby, my drum corps wife and my work wife are all going to a local German Restaurant for their Tuesday night German Buffet. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we can sit outside in the BeerGarden and enjoy our meal and a few drinks.
That concludes all of the pre planned fun. The night after my birthday starts the first of 4 outside rehearsals for Drum Corps so we can get our marching legs in order before our first parade in the middle of May.
Well that’s it for now. The next bowling post will be up probably Thursday, then the Birthday recap posts should begin. Thanks for checking in.
