Whirlwind Weekend

Motor Man and I had a very fast-paced weekend.

Friday morning, he headed to our local short track since several of our engine customers were practicing for Saturday night’s race. He came home and ‘tweaked’ a bit on one of the carburetors…..in the cool of our kitchen. I couldn’t help but think that his mom was looking down and shaking her head at all his carburetor tools on the table that was once in HER kitchen.

Friday afternoon, we met our hot air ballooning friend, Mark, and his crew for a balloon launch. It was just before sunset, and a beautiful evening for a flight.

Saturday morning, Mark had another flight scheduled: an EARLY morning one. So we got up a little before 5 in order to meet them for the launch.

That evening, we were back at Langley Speedway for the opening race of this season. It was a long evening, but one of our customers brought home a win, so it was worth the wait.

We left the track at midnight, but evidently, a combination of excitement and exhaustion kept me from falling asleep until nearly 2 a.m.

Yesterday, we took a break from the beach, knowing it would be packed with people, and instead drove to Cape Charles on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. We enjoyed riding around town and seeing the charming homes decorated beautifully for the 4th. Surprisingly, I didn’t think to take a single picture.

How was your weekend? Fast-paced or relaxing?
