It was a great weekend, but it wound up being too short. I really could’ve used an extra day… maybe even two. We managed to pack a whole lotta fun into the time we were allotted though.
On Friday, we met up with some friends and went out to hear a bit of live music. As most of you know, I’m a big fan of concerts and I had a Shinedown, Hailstorm, and Aranda evening all lined up for us. We decided to meet at a local hotspot, The Gray Snail, before the concert. When we arrived we were surprised to find that Hailstorm was performing an acoustic set before their big show at the Cain’s Ballroom. It was great. While we were killing time waiting for the main event, we ran into an old friend of ours. After a brief discussion we realized that she could use our tickets much more than we could, so we gave her ours and went out to hear some local talent instead.
Saturday morning we suited up in our finest leathers, jumped on my bike and went to take part in a poker run to support Cancer Sucks. It was a great ride and supported a great cause.
After the ride, it was time to head home, shower up and giddy up to our next event. We joined a group of friends at a place called The Fox & Hound for an evening of Pool, Darts, catching up with old friends, and making new ones.
Sunday, of course, was Mother’s Day. And I want to take a minute to wish a belated Happy Mother’s Day to you all. I hope it was a joyous time spent with cherished loved ones. We had a marvelous lunch that my brother prepared while visiting my mom. He made homemade Sesame Chicken and let me tell you… it was to die for. After lunch, we spent a brief bit of time at home, before my SIL invited us out for an impromptu cookout at her place. More free food? You know they didn’t have to twist my arm to get me to agree to that one. So, we finished off the evening with some grilled steaks, potatoes and steamed prawns.
Other than that, we just tried to fit in a bit of sleep here and there. We weren’t entirely successful there, but there just wasn’t enough time to fit everything in and get a full night’s rest. Oh well, I can sleep when I die.
So, how was your weekend?
