A Good Weekend.

Posted on

What a great weekend! The back end of the week was filled with a variety of bad news at our house, so hints of good news on Friday, along with some excellent events, made the weekend start off early and with a good bang. First up, the opening of the Veronica Mars movie! Paul and I are big Veronica Mars fans and we absolutely participated in the Kickstarter campaign last March. I was worried we wouldn’t get to see it in the theater, but Paul saw it was playing in New Brunswick on opening day and we made a Secret Outing plan. What could feel more decadent than sneaking out right in the middle of the day to go to the movies? I sent Tabby over to a friend’s house to catch the bus from there and headed off to the theater, proudly wearing my official VM t-shirt. The movie was fantastic, everything we hoped it would be, and really great. Then in the evening we went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday and had a wonderful time with friends we don’t see often enough.
Saturday spring felt within our grasp. And behold! Blooming crocus!

With most snow melted we were finally able to do some geocaching. We had a geotracker that we needed to deposit in a site. Paul had picked a location called “the prettiest spot in Bucks County”, and off we went. This was only a half hour away from us, and a very pretty drive. And when we got to the spot (which is someone’s farm) it was indeed bucolic and charming and quaint and idyllic.

The farm has babydoll sheep and I’d like to go back when they are out because they sound adorable.

And a little way along the road we easily found another cache. I’m hoping as the weather improves we get out and about more. This geocaching is fun-a great way to find new destinations.

We spent the evening with friends playing board games, which is our very favorite thing to do and it was so nice the kids could just go off and play while we adults were playing.
On Sunday my Girl Scout troop marched in a St. Patrick’s Day parade.  This parade is in a nearby town and despite it never being on my radar or one I ever attended, it’s really big and well attended! It was kind of chaotic and we were a bit stressy about getting in place on time and everything, but it ended up being fun and the girls did a great job (even though it was really cold.)

St. Patrick's Day ParadeToday is actually St. Patrick’s Day for real. I’ve got corned beef and cabbage in the crock pot and will be making Irish soda bread this afternoon.  We’re still extracting our honey quite slowly.

By the way, you’re supposed to plant your peas on St. Patrick’s Day, but that is definitely not happening today.  I still haven’t even stuck a spade into the garden beds yet!
