Seriously, it was pretty epic. Aside from the new recipe I tried out that almost poisoned everyone (how was I supposed to know that two tablespoons of ground pepper is totally different from two tablespoons of cracked pepper? Apparently, it's a lot spicier) and the bear that made its way into the house it was a very relaxing weekend.
We sat around, ate pie for breakfast, wished for snow, and went for not-too-strenuous walks. And did I mention the pie for breakfast? Mmmmm . . .
Certainly, one of the highlights was when a baby bear wandered into the foyer while we were barbecuing one evening. We all banged on pots and pans to scare it (and probably its lurking mama bear) off, but really I just wanted to invite it in and pet it. So fluffy! And definitely fat enough to survive the winter.
So yeah, it was a wonderful weekend. And now it's hard to get back to the daily grind (witness how long it took me to write a blog post about the weekend). I hope you all had an equally relaxing time.
