With the women kicking off their retreat, Jeff and I did a whole lot of nothing today. We rode the four-wheelers, went into Adel to grab a bite, came back to where we’re staying to just hang out and drink beers, went to a local winery that has so much potential but is just failing miserably, and then came back to drink some more beer.
Also, I took a picture of a horse.
After four and a half hours of trimming, mowing, edging, and cleaning up – all of it in the 90 degree heat of a Florida July – my overly-ambitious Saturday hit a wall of exhaustion. The only thing left to do was pat myself on the back with a cold one and dip in the pool.
After really horrendous traffic put a damper on our plans for the evening (Lee got home too late for us to make it on time for the event we’d planned on attending), we decided to just have a nice, quit evening by ourselves. We ran down the street to a local Italian restaurant for a bite to eat, then came home an indulged a little.
I had a cigar from New Year’s Eve that had gone un-smoked as well as a specialty beer in my fridge I’d been meaning to try. So I broke out both of them, and Lee grabbed a
tumbler … glass of wine, and we sat on our lanai and just talked. Is there anything better than having a wonderful conversation with your best friend?
