Willy Nilly Friday 5

I had this post written (in my head) but my hard drive must have crashed. Let’s see if I can remember all the randomness I wanted to share this week. 

1. Saturday: Breakfast at Panera, then we were off to the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center with a carload of “e-cycling” to get rid of. The parking area across the street from the aquarium is where the drop-off is held. We visited the VA&MSC gift shop while there for an item a friend thought our grandson would like. I found something I liked, too! (Truthfully, there were a LOT of items I liked.) Hubby got this book for me. I look forward to learning and sharing information specific to our area. 

2. Sunday afternoon: A friend and I attended a play at The Little Theater of Norfolk. We saw the final performance of The Women, a comedy set in the 1930s, written by Clare Booth Luce.

3. It’s only taken a month, but today I came up with my word for 2016: Snag–as in I’m going to snag every opportunity to explore more city and state parks this year.

4. Today’s weather: 

5. Today: I took a 3-hour hike at First Landing State Park. It was the perfect day for it. I’d planned to wash a load of clothes and grill veggies when I got home. The traffic lights were out on our street, which should have been my first warning something was amiss. The electricity was off when I got home, so, no laundry. I lit the grill and proceeded to chop zucchini, yellow squash, sweet onion, yellow and red bell peppers–by hand–on the cutting board–right next to the food processor. Wouldn’t you know? The power came on as I finished the last pepper. They were grilled before sunset, so I didn’t have to finish by flashlight. 

How was your weekend?
