This weekend was one of food and fun. Diana and I attended a fund raiser at the local Waldorf school -- a Middle Eastern night.
We had wonderful food: humus and tzatziki, dolmas and samosas, tabouli, almond cake, turkish delight, home-made halvah and delicious little ricotta filled cakes dipped in maple syrup.
After the food, a local belly-dance group performed for us. It was wonderful to see all ages and shapes 'n' sizes in the group; they were a good group (the young girl in aqua was soooo very good!), and it was a really inexpensive ($15) and fun evening!
I took a few belly-dancing classes years ago, and I'd like to attend the Wednesday night class at the YMCA because it's such good exercise. (Plus there's the extra added bonus of feeling all skinny and sexy afterwards --- things I don't usually feel these days!) But alas, my Wednesdays are already taken.
Still dancing in any form is good exercise. So, after the Waldorf, Diana and I headed down the shore to meet friends for an evening of dancing at the LaHave Fire Hall. "The Usual Suspects" were playing, and they're a fantastic local cover band. I danced for almost every number, and didn't get home until the wee hours.
And I'm sure that after one more foot soaking and a couple more good night's rest, I'll be fully recovered!
We're in for a week of rain here on the South Shore; so I'm looking forward to the green that will follow. What did you do last weekend?
