old school weekend

“Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.”

Okay, so we didn’t actually go to the Home Depot or buy flooring but our Sunday really was reminiscent of our domesticated weekends back home.

We decided to skip Ponce proper on Sunday and headed back to San Juan after breakfast. We fought the masses at the Plaza Las Americas and did a little shopping and then went to the grocery. Exciting?!?

Maybe it doesn’t sound like it to you but when your Sundays are normally filled with going to an airport, getting on a plane, getting off a plane, getting a taxi back to your back to a hotel, checking into the hotel, waiting for your luggage to be brought up, unpacking everything, etc - it is kind of exciting. Okay, maybe not exciting but definitely enjoyable.

We spent the night with wine, pizza and repeats of Law and Order…and it was really great. We’re not ready to settle down quite yet but, it does feel nice to have a little down time and just relax.

Ponce can wait until the last weekend when we take a little road trip to see the Camuy Caves here on the island. At least then I'll have remembered the camera.

This weekend we’re hanging out in San Juan because we’ve got visitors arriving on Sunday afternoon! Looking forward to seeing familiar faces!
