Busy, but Fun

This last weekend was very busy, but we had a lot of fun, so it all balances out.
Friday, being valentines Day was pretty laid back.  We enjoyed a lunch together and really enjoyed crab legs for dinner with the boys. Nick even spent some time making an appetizer:
Bacon wrapped scallops.
I got a lovely valentine greeting from Wild West Batman:
It was a really good evening.
Saturday, I avoided laundry.  My mom had helped to change over loads, but she kind of messed up the order and mixed some things--so totally not how I do it--so I just avoided it and decided that Sunday was soon enough to deal with it.  And since we had friends in town, it was way more fun to go hang out with them.
We went to dinner at a local chinese place.  This has been such a tradition, the waiters at the restaurant know us and expect us about this time of year. The food was good and the company was wonderful.
We were up far too late on Saturday--we always are catching up, reminiscing, talking and such--so Sunday morning came quicker than we expected.
Breakfast with our friends and picking up Turbo, who spent the night.  Then home to face the laundry, clean house a bit and spend some time gaming out with Bruiser.
We did get  freak thunder/snow storm Sunday evening.  For a time, we couldn't see across the street and there were rumbles of thunder.  It was odd. Thulle, our puppy, did OK with the thunder, it wasn't loud, so we still don't know how he will react to a booming thunder storm.
I finished all the laundry, even the towels are folded and put away. I got all the dishes done.  I vacuumed. The house looks pretty good right now.  Now we will go live in it and it'll need attention next weekend again.  Crazy housework cycle.
How was your weekend?
MMMM freebie week.
I'm going back to music that Nick introduced me too when I met him.  They Might Be Giants album Flood
Birdhouse in Your Soul:
Istanbul not Constantinople:
Particle Man:
Just some short, fun and slightly goofy songs. Have a good Monday!
