The Weekend That Was

Here's a little peek into this past weekend...
^^We spent Saturday morning at Five Rivers watching Dragon Boat races.  It was HOT!
^^I spent most of Saturday afternoon locked out of the house.  Mom and dad had gone to Louisiana to visit my brother, sister-in-law and nephew.  I went to the store to get something for dinner and the power went out (grocery stores are pitch black when the power goes out!).  I guess the store had generators, because the lights came right back on so I paid and came home, only to find that the garage would not open.  That was at about 4pm.  I sat down by the pool and read my book, no problem.  Four hours later, the power was still out, so I went across town to get a spare key from my uncle.  I made my dinner (Kraft macaroni and cheese dinner) in the dark, with a flashlight tucked under my chin and lighting the stove with a match.  Finally, around 9pm the lights came back on.  Needless to say first thing Sunday morning I went and had a key made for myself!  I will not be locked out again!
^^Sunday was a pretty lazy day...other than getting a new key made, I did some "baking" and played with my early birthday present from Bryn (a new Kindle to replace my slowly dying one).

Check back this week for the recipe and more photos of the Dragon Boat races.  Hope you had a great weekend!
