It ended up being a nice weekend with friends and relaxing.
We did our last brunch for the next month due to Ramadan starting on Saturday morning. We went with a new group of people, which was good, but also a challenge. First, it seems lately I am always over-dressed for things. I sometimes blame my husband for telling me that people will be fancy and then finding out that is not the case. Luckily, I am confident in my body that I was not overly self-conscious about the fact that while one person was in jeans, I was completely on the other side of the scale. 😛
It may also be our last brunch ever here since we are winding down and getting over the brunch scene a bit. Since I was not drinking at all, it sort of loses its fun when everyone is sober! Is that a terrible statement of socializing? 😐
In any case, we did still have a good time and if it was our last, we enjoyed it.
Yesterday was more about running errands and trying not to let the start of Ramadan make us too sad given that we will have to eat behind curtains and in darker venues if we want to eat out. To celebrate we met Z for breakfast at Denny’s. M is not the biggest fan, but I was really wanting an American breakfast that would fill me up. It was a success! I polished off the complete Lumberjack Slam and was full until dinnertime. 😉
We did a few other stops before pushing ourselves to not let the hot temps deter us from hitting the beach. M wanted to get one more sea swim in before the temperature of the water became too gross. I think he is right as this may have been the last weekend for that since it was just cool enough, but definitely not cool. We spent probably two hours in the water having a gab and soaking up the sun.
It was definitely what all of us needed, I think.
So, it’s another week beginning with much quieter plans for the week ahead. Still, life is moving along.
