Weekend Recap

26 02 2012

This weekend started with Joe offshore and me recovering from a very unpleasant bout of food poisoning.  Luckily, it could only go up from there.

Saturday was gorgeous so I stayed poolside with our next book club selection, The Hunger Games.

Joe got home Saturday just in time for dinner and we had a pretty relaxing evening.

Sunday was another beautiful day so after breakfast we went for a walk around town.

It was really, really hot so we only made it a couple of kilometres before heading home.

We had lunch and spent the rest of the day at the pool.

I finished The Hunger Games.

Joe finished book 2, Catching Fire.

And then we had pizza.


Weekend Recap

5 02 2012

This started out as one of those weekends where we had a lot going on.  We had a dinner out on Friday with a group of friends, games night at our house on Saturday with another group of friends and then Joe’s commuting colleagues coming over on Sunday for a homecooked meal and the Gabon vs Mali quarterfinal game.  With the exception of the Friday night dinner, everything else ended up cancelling at the last minute which left us with a nice relaxing weekend at home.

We started our own game night with Joe figuring out how to play Backgammon and then teaching me.

Sunday was spent reading and having a beer poolside before heading in to watch the Gabon vs Mali quarterfinal game.  We’ve let the guard off an hour and a half early to go and watch the game, barred the gate and are enjoying a halftime snack in the still scoreless game.
