There aren’t many weekends left that the hubby and I can enjoy by ourselves. The weeks seem to go by rather quickly as the due date for the baby approaches. This weekend we didn’t have much planned so we decided to take a drive. We woke up Saturday to a bleary and wet day, and decided to jump in the car and drive east. On previous trips, we had gone north, west and south but never east. The drive was pleasant and not bad for a rainy day. We drove from Charlotte to Rockingham taking the scenic route through Indian Trail, Monroe, Wadesboro and assorted other small towns along the way. The hubby and I enjoy seeing small towns and the beautiful North Carolina countryside. True there wasn’t much to see but it was beautiful and green. Rockingham is mostly known for its dragway which we didn’t bother to visit. However, we did visit an outdated Hardee’s and had a mediocre lunch. Despite the appeal of the taco salad on television, the real thing has a lot to be desired.
The rest of the weekend was less exciting as we did our usual Target run on Sunday and spent some time at the bookstore looking for new reads. Oh, and baseball season is in full swing now but our beloved Braves haven’t been doing very well. They beat the Dodgers but lost to the Giants on the road. Tonight is their opening game at home and I hope they do a lot better.
