Well this weekend is shaping up quite nicely. Everyone who was expected to come and stay have canceled. That's perfectly ok, only it means 5 uninterrupted days with my mate.....We have similar likes but very different rhythms, like so many people I know. He stays up late and I turn in early. I wake up early and he sleeps until noon. That all works well, except that when he's winding up is usually when I'm winding down. Finding activities we both enjoy can sometimes be a bit challenge, but we manage. We're both avid sportsmen and take great pleasure in competing against each other. The game we enjoy most is WII tennis. We've been known to play until we're sopping wet. He has a mean flick of the wrist where I'm more your follow through slugger. As a result, I've put many a nick in the wall behind me and once hit him square in the shoulder one week before that shoulder's Rotater Cuff surgery. I felt bad, especially when I lost the point.
Probably the most fun we have,besides jogging through tick infested woods, would be watching double and triple feature movies during and after dinner. We can easily fly through half a dozen in a long weekend and that's not including catching up with NYC and NJ Housewives, Nurse Jackie, Glee and the Tudors. I like the clothes and the big jewels, especially the tiaras!!! When things start to dull and we need a kick we go into town and watch the circus. It comes to town like clockwork every weekend. That is a story all its own. A little shopping at my favorite book store and filling the cart for yummy food I can no longer afford to eat due to my advanced age and slowing metabolism makes for a pretty complete weekend.
I wish all of you a great weekend with whomever you do or don't decide to hang out with. Rest, relaxation and fun are the orders of the day.....Fashion can wait.
