Well, well, well. Another Monday arrives and I must say that spending time with the vacationing hubby for this whole past week was spectacular. I of course have been on permanent furlough since early April, but even I felt like I was truly on vacation as we had a chance to both tackle some fun home projects and still feel like we were on vacation.
Friday, we took our big road trip to the World Golf Hall of Fame. Cool place.
They have a special Bob Hope exhibit that runs through the rest of the year and we found the actual hall of inductees quite interesting.
If you ever want a makeover, get inducted here. Check out Karrie Webb before.
They're pretty kind to their inductees, don't you agree?
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Bill Murray and brothers' Caddyshack (for me, the yummy hack salad minus the turkey and bacon but with extra bleu cheese and eggs!)
Lar met up with the restaurant's "mascot." We're not the biggest Gator fans but something about a man in a skirt just compels me to take a photo. Hmmm....
Then it was off to the PGA 18-hole putting course where I scored - ahem - a hole in one on hole #9 (woohoo) but still went on to be sorely beaten by the final hole.
After resting on the bench lakeside enjoying the breeze and the lovely scenery, we hit the road again for the three-hour trip home through such hustling and bustling cities as Interlachen and Palatka (yep, I never heard of them either). But it was a fun adventure and best of all, the old wall map in the fitness room gets one more sticker marking yet another sports hall of fame that we've tackled.
Let's see: we've done football, basketball, baseball, bowling, hockey (well, I have) and now golf. What's next? Tennis? Figure skating? Shuffleboard?Hmmm...
On Saturday, our favorite visitors stopped by the house to celebrate (a little early) Lar's upcoming birthday.
Opening gifts, enjoying some Mexican munchies and just hanging out with the kids was fun as always. Great company, great food and delightful conversation. And the cool baseball, music and TV-themed books were a hit.
Brandon tried to pull a fast one on his dad foregoing his usual look with a mohawk. After we picked up Lar's jaw from the ground, he explained it was just for the day, he'd be returning to his usual shaved head cut.
Deacon, my grandson (yep, older hubby+older stepkids=stepson), is five and a bundle of energy. I mean a lot of it. Then, add about 5 chocolate chip cookies and an Iced Tea and you've got one supercharged little fella. Tuckered out this 39-year-old, who doesn't need much to get tuckered out these days.
What a week, what a weekend. A reminder of what's really important in life.
Take a few moments to remind yourself today of what and who matter most to you. Make the best of your Monday!
