We had a fun time hanging out, catching up a bit over dinner and getting our Trek on. And we also ended up watching an episode of the Lower Decks, as a bonus.
If you’re curious for a stroll down memory lane, check out lizandfelix.com/… we’ve got a lot of photos from the day, oh so many years ago.
I can’t remember the last time we went in to work together. Definitely surreal. So much of our lives since the pandemic started has been working remotely, it’s difficult to even process being downtown together for work.
Today, Liz and I had a plan to just go out and about. To get out of the house some, and to just make a day of being “out” – something we don’t really do much of.
We had a delicious meal, and got to sample a lot of whiskies. Post dinner, we headed inside to hang out for a bit in their living room. Having a bit of a dessert, and catching up some more.
And then! After we got back, we got to sitting on the couch and just talking. We ended up visiting and catching up, and time somehow got away from us. At some point, Grace went to bed and Jackson came downstairs… and we all just kept on talking and talking. Telling stories, sharing stories.
I think that by the time we decided to call it a night it was close to 3:30 AM! Seriously!
We had some time alone at the lake house with Grace. But tonight, she was working an evening shift (3PM – 11PM)… so Liz and I decided to take a stroll on the beach by ourselves (with Sandy in tow). We didn’t quite stay long enough for the sunset, but were out a good while in the early evening.
Late in the afternoon, a few of us decided to wander over to the beach for a walk… to catch the sunset.
Went to drop off our car today, at the dealership. They were closed, so we ended up leaving our keys in the overnight dropoff/box.
Liz followed me from the lakehouse, and was driving Anne’s Miata. Of course, on the way over, she passed me for a bit… and then eventually followed me again.
Slow day today. We got up a bit early, and several of us headed out to Musekgon to visit the Muskegon Farmers Market.
We’re heading out of town soon, and we didn’t want to be a blocker for Bob’s work on the HVAC up here. The space is super tight (by design), and Bob can’t finalize the placement of the furnace until we mud, tape, and paintthe walls. Because once he puts in the furnace and ductwork, there’s no way we’re going to be able to reach the walls.
It’s been a long time coming – but today, Liz and I put some time in the backyard to trim down a lot of overgrown foliage.
On our side, Tippi has gotten out of hand. And honestly, has been out of hand for several months now. While Liz was working on Tippi, I was working on trimming a lot of the tree branches that were bleeding into our area from the neighbor’s yard… and over-shading our garden boxes.
Whiskey and Serendipity: Teeling Tasting at Warehouse Liquors (Drammers Club), Dinner at Cherry Circle Room
Liz and I had an early date night planned today. Earlier in the week, we got an email notification, a kind of last minute invite to a Drammers event at Warehouse Liquors: a tasting event featuring Teeling whiskey. And a chance to sample tastes from two 30+ year old bottles!
I was filling up some watering cans, to water the plants on our front porch… and looked up to see these guys, in the distance. One of them eventually came over and started down the driveway towards me. I was actually shocked to see just how close he came to me. And got a bit of it on video.
