This Weekend--Wedding, Work, and Play

This weekend started early--with my son Derek's marriage to lovely Amy yesterday.

What fun we had! It was a simple, relaxed ceremony followed by dinner at one of the most fun places I've ever dined. From the back it looked like it was a biker bar--

But the flower gardens in front gave a hint that it might be better inside.

And it was.

Good food and drink, a comfortable atmosphere for the kids, plenty to look at, and lots of laughter added up to a memorable meal.

Now back to the real world and the rest of the weekend to-do list:
  • Larry will be working on finishing clean-up at the old cabin site, and then if he has time, pulling in firewood. 
  • I am cleaning up the Tappan (lots of Brillo and elbow grease required), canning pears and putting up peppers. I found a recipe for jalapenos I want to try, the cayenne peppers need to be strung and there is a bushel basket of banana and bell peppers to be reckoned with. The pears are a simple peel-and-can affair, but time consuming and there's a bushel of those too.
  • Laundry, housework, and some time to enjoy this beautiful fall day out on the porch are on the schedule too.

  • Tonight we have concert tickets for Tim O'Brien. That will be a treat! 

Looks like I'd better get back to scrubbing that stove if I'm going to get all this stuff done.
