I worked to cover this past Friday so my Favorite Egg and I could have a long weekend together. I just wanted a little extra time, both with him, and away from my desk. He came in on Thursday night, allowing us the ability to relax a little Friday morning before getting the dogs out for a noon showing at the house. From there we went to his old place to do a little work and bring more boxes back from my stash. Unfortunately, the work we wanted to do there didn't go smoothly and didn't get done.
I had picked up some Rum Chata to create the drink that Kirk introduced me to, but hadn't realized I didn't have Captain at the house (how does that happen)? After a quick stop I was ready to mix a couple of a drinks. We invited Lor-Lor to join us for dinner and sat with our beverages and a Keven Bacon movie for the evening.
Saturday we headed out to peep some leaves. First stop Glades Pike Winery for a glass and a couple of bottles, then just down the road to Laurel Hill State Park. We were there two years ago and he was ready to return. After a bit of a hike there we went to the Quemahoning, which I've never been to. I wanted to gawk around a bit and get a feel for the place, but I also thought maybe the leaves would be nice around the water.
We're supposed to be at peak for the leaves, but it was a bit lack luster. As much as the one tree behind my house has changed in the past three days - I'm betting by this coming Thursday there will be a dramatic difference in the places we visited. Regardless, it was a nice trip out - and the weather was fantastic all weekend. Sunday we did a little relaxing and running.
As to the showing - it was too big for this folks looking. *sigh* I guess I've heard worse "no thanks" responses.
