full weekend
posted by soe 12:23 am

After yesterday morning’s battle with spammers, the blog is feeling much better. I’ve upgraded a couple of things and added a couple of things at Rudi‘s suggestion, so now we should be back to normal.

We spent yesterday afternoon out in Virginia, which, as you know by now, means I spent a lot of money. But I bought some cute clothes and some cute shoes (pictures to come later in the week), so I guess that’s good. We also stopped by Panera Bread for lupper where, in addition to getting to sit next to a fireplace, I also had the most beautiful cup of cocoa. It was served in a giant cappuccino mug and topped with a mountain of whipped cream with a trail of chocolate sauce leading to the summit. Exquisite.

Today we slept in, wandered to the farmers’ market, and got to chat with our friend, Erik. Then Rudi went out for a bike ride (crazy!) while I played with Dance Dance Revolution. We finished the night with a trip to our friends Pat and Heidi’s to watch the Super Bowl with them, their three darling kids, and our other friends, Jerry and Dan.

I’m really not ready for the weekend to be over. But I guess all good things must come to an end, right? And if Monday never came, neither would Monday night, which offers the best tv of the week.

We have a Panera bread by us and you are right they do make the most exquisite hot cocoa!

I LOVE Panera’s hot chocolate! Yum! And they’re orange scones. Man, I miss living down the street from one!

Wanted to comment on your poetry (thank you!) but saw your post about no comments. Glad you’re back! I also wanted to let you know that I have a new cycling blog if you are interested (I’m not sure if you like to ride too, or only Rudi?). It’s http://knitseashore.typepad.com/she_cycles/ Also, does Rudi have a cycling blog? My husband just started one, and is interested in connecting with other cyclists out there. I’d be happy to give you the address if Rudi is interested.

That hot chocolate sounds divine!
