Weekend update

It's so nice to have my weekend consist of Sunday and Monday. Yes, Saturday comes around and I wish I was off like most of the population, but I only work till 2:30, so I really can't complain. I can't complain about my job at all, and I don't, as you know.

I had a great time at Sherwood, again. This time Kit and I met up with our old friend Lisa who lives in VA. It's been at least a year since I've seen her and the last time was at Sherwood for another sleep over. The three of us met and went to Whole Foods for dinner. Lisa and I explored Anthropologie. That place is a visual feast. We went back to Sherwood and I drove us along the path that runs along the Severn, in the golf car, of course. We spent the evening drinking wine and talking the hours away on the screened-in porch. We had scones for breakfast on the porch, then it was back on the golf car for more time by the water. Lisa had two pairs of binoculars and her bird book. A pair of Great Blue Herons were on the dock, probably 50 feet from us. Through the binoculars we were able to see the female (?) regurgitate two whole fish. What an awesome sight. Then, one by one she picked them up and dropped them in the water. She was beautiful and so majestic. It was a picture perfect day. We had lunch at the General Store, then Lisa followed me home. We spent time talking about my garden. Lisa works in a big garden center and knows her stuff. I hope to have her help me in the spring with new plants. We drove Emily to her job at Rita's. Lisa had never been to Rita's before and fell in love with the Cotton Candy Ice. I won't tell you how many she had because she reads this blog! She went with me to pick out a new printer for Emily. Then we went to Borders and then to my salon where we looked through the windows. She had never seen it before. It was great spending time together. I wish she lived closer.

Today was spent doing laundry, shopping, and other house-stuff. I drove Emily to practice at 3:00, then ran errands and spent time on my laptop at Panera's. At 6 I went back to the school for a team/parent meeting and dinner. At least half the kids forgot to tell their parents to bring a dish, including mine. There was pasta salad, salad, chips and salsa and a lot of desserts. The coach is great and it's going to be a fantastic team. Tomorrow is the first day of school (yeah!) and the first game. I'll be there. I jokingly asked Emily what she'd be wearing for her first day of school. The choices are green polo or blue! How great is that? I hope she has a fantastic day.

I became a great aunt again on Saturday. My sister's second oldest son had a boy in June. This time it was her oldest son Adam and his wife Millie. They welcomed little Bea on Saturday morning!

Time to put this day to bed.

I'll expect to see a golf cart in your driveway the next time I come over. You really seem to love them!!!
Sounds like an idyllic weekend. We are so lucky to have the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries in our back yard.
Congratulations on your beautiful great niece!
