I was trying to think of what my favorite weekend moment was for this past weekend, and I thought I had it, but then I wondered if it was because it was one of the later ones.
Here are the candidates for favorite weekend moment:
- went to a music show at a local small venue with some friends. I so wish I could find the artist's name because she was amazing - I think I have it at home and will put it up later. From a small remote Scottish island and sings with a small band (husband, fiddler woman, and guitarist). Sang in Gaelic, played the piccolo sometimes, the accordian once, and as an encore (the MOMENT), the bagpipes (which was so cool to see tuned and which I LOVE).
- went to Lowes to buy a faucet for my kitchen (agonizing over it), went to check out and couldn't find my gift card. Checked out, found it, had to go to customer service to deal with it. The guy was technically off the clock but helped me anyway, so I offered him a tootsie pop. He laughed, said no. I offered him a trail mix bar. He said thanks, no, and asked if I was a nurse. I then offered him some beano. And he laughed more. So we got to talking as he did everything. Turns out he was born in Bosnia, lived in Germany for 10 years, getting his associate's degree, and knew I was Polish by the sound of the last name and the way my hair is graying. Ha! It was just a nice exchange.
- drove around like mad all weekend, and the skies were so amazing - the diversity of clouds, the very isolated showers, the light.
So my original vote was for #2, but the others come close.
