Columbus Day & Last Week Wrap Up

This past Columbus Day I spent in a Naval History Museum.  It was pretty cool, kinda weird to be in an 'Age of Exploration' exhibit on Columbus Day.  We watched a little film about the recovery of the turret from the USS Monitor after it sank outside of the Outer Banks during the Civil War.  We saw a lot of maritime history things, what the inside of cabins looked like on the Monitor, learned more about the Titanic, etc.  A neat place to go.

I've also embarked on an endeavor that I don't want to mention just yet for fear of a jinx. But it involved eating a delicious meal:

Do you see this lunch here?

baked potato, green beans & onions, chicken & pasta.  Epic Lunch time!  It was so delicious but so large.  I didn't eat it all.  Oh, for the record...someone made this for me.  They. Made. This.  I was impressed.

Over the weekend before Columbus Day, we went camping.  It was really nice even though I think it stirred up my allergies which may or may not lead to a cold.  I've been taking Airborne, but we'll see what happens.

We headed out Saturday night & built a great campfire.  We cooked some weenies & some smores & played with the puppy.  He liked camping because he realized he could pee any where pretty much.  We made sure that #2 was done elsewhere though.

My room mate told me that the puppy dog didn't really get the concept that just cuz they were sleeping on the floor didn't mean the whole floor was the bed.  It was a bit chilly & I had one of those mummy sleeping bags which was great except I like to sleep sprawled everywhere.  That was not possible with that sleeping bag!  Our other friend who moved away was visiting so it was a great catch up with her.  We talked about dating, jobs, life, etc.  Commented on the fact that my room mates have been married for about two months.  It was a good friend session!

We improvised with pancakes (maybe I'll tell the story later) & then headed out that morning.  It was nice to get away for a little while.

What did you do this past weekend?
Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
