The weekend has been fairly uneventful so far. Yesterday we watched a good amount of football, went grocery shopping, and hung out with our friends Brad and Esmir. Today we went to church and then came back here. I’ve been watching football and Lauren went for a walk and then to read at a nearby coffee shop. Tonight we are supposed to meet up with Abdhie, Keren, Brad, and Esmir for dinner. It should be fun.
Two highlights of the weekend so far:
1 – Our trip to the art museum/gallery yesterday. Ever since we moved into this neighborhood Lauren and I have looked forward to visiting the Genesis museum, located about a 4-minute walk away from our house. We’ve thought about visiting Genesis multiple times, but chose to save it for a special occasion. We didn’t have any plans yesterday and wanted to take advantage of Lauren’s second-to-last weekend here, so we excitedly headed out to make an afternoon of the trip.
Knocking on the door, we realized that the Genesis, advertised as both a museum and gallery, is actually someone’s house, in which the owner happens to sell paintings. So, a woman awkwardly followed us through the three rooms while Lauren and I looked at the paintings, trying to hide our smiles about how we misjudged the affair. After walking around for a little bit we said our thanks and left. What was to be an afternoon’s adventure took about 7 minutes. Oh well!
2 – No more blackouts! As of yesterday, the daily blackouts are history. We found out they were reduced on Nov 15th, the day we left, and eliminated yesterday. Lauren and I have found ourselves confused between this week since our lights remained on. Such a treat!
Ok, that’s all for now. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
