The first full weekend of February brought all kinds of excitement.
Hubby and I went to the Maryland motorcycle show on Friday (my birthday!). The show wasn’t all that exciting, but I did buy some much-needed deerskin gauntlet gloves. The real highlight of the night, though, was the post-show dinner at The Corner Stable where we ate some very tasty barbecued ribs.
Saturday, our good friends Kathy and Barry came over for dinner. They brought their dog, Max, too. We had lots of fun, as we usually do when we all get together. I made chicken marsala, which was just okay. The mint margaritas were way better. Dinner was also accompanied by a nice white wine, garlic bread and some salad. We finished the night off homemade chocolate bourbon pecan pie.
Sunday was merry, too. Three Brittany boys came to visit Meg and Belle.
I’ve mentioned here before that Meg and Belle were both adopted through American Brittany Rescue (ABR), albeit at different times. Andrea Bock, the ABR coordinator for Maryland and Virginia, lives nearby. Andrea and I actually met years ago when we both worked for a large investment management firm in downtown Baltimore. It was she who introduced me to ABR.
Andrea, who’s been anxious to meet Belle since her arrival over a month ago, stopped by for a visit today. They got to meet my girls and stretch their legs.
It was interesting seeing five, yes FIVE, dogs in our yard. If only the ground were drier, we’d have much cleaner dogs and far fewer muddy divots in the grass.
Spring is coming. The yard will dry and recover eventually. I see more play dates in our future.
