Easter Weekend 2009

Just a short post before things become a distant memory...

We had a great Easter weekend. Mrs. TBF had five days off in a row, and the weather was fantastic.

On the Thursday before Easter, we celebrated Kirk's triumphant return to Basel with a "Kirkey" dinner - turkey on the grill, stuffing, cranberry chutney... the works! Douglas, Liz, and Claire joined in on the fun, and it was a great way to start off the long holiday weekend.

The next day, I enjoyed my first rooftop breakfast of 2009. Mrs. TBF concocted a breakfast "hobo" made with leftover turkey stuffing. It was AWESOME!!!

Let's see...

After that it was: dinner at our friends' house on Friday evening, big dinner on Saturday night, Easter dinner with friends at our house on Sunday night, big-time leftovers on Monday... food...Food...FOOOOOOOOOD!

The bad news? On Tuesday it was back to work for Mrs. TBF. But the good news? Only a 4-day work week.

What will we do this weekend?

I think an adventure is in order...

You forgot to mention that the lovely Di also joined in for Kirky dinner! The meager salmon on toast was my breakfast.

I agree...we need an adventure!

Yes, Di was here. However, because of her allergy-induced watery/puffy eyes and red nose, I chose to not post a photo of her.

Oh the weather looks great! Fun fun...

I'm just finally getting around to catching up on blogs--thanks again for the excellent "Kirkey" dinner. It was great to see you guys!

Di said...

I was there! - yeah, that was me, with the G&T, sitting next to the haselnuss bush ....;) Evidently, locals (or those who take allergy meds plus G&Ts) are no longer mentioned....;)
