TWTW - the short one before the long one

Friday I was at the shore by 7, had dinner with MFD and Angie at some eh Italian place I can't remember the name of, and we were in bed by 11, which made it easy to get up at 5:30 the next morning for a lovely sunrise. I played photographer for a girl staging an elaborate hammock photo on the pier before hanging on the porch with the dogs.
I was off to meet Jenn from Going the Distance at Drip-n-Scoop for iced coffee and donuts. I was glad we could make it work because we were supposed to rendezvous earlier in the summer and then I wasn't down the shore that weekend. We were gabbing nonstop for over an hour.
The rest of the day was spent at the beach with MFD and Angie, Evan & Jenny and the kids, and Jenn & Steve and the kids. It was a good one so we stayed until close to 7:30. We had a bonus run-in with our friend Mike from junior high and high school and his girlfriend.
Sunday morning sunrise
Followed by porch laziness and a weekenders group photo organized professionally by Evan and cropped poorly by moi.
I was at the beach from noon until 5 on Sunday, then sort of shoved everything in a bag and went home reluctantly. It was the first weekend without renters since June, and it was nice to not worry about what anyone might need. It was a great weekend and I was bummed to leave. I always leave weekends like these thinking I'm so lucky to have such good friends, most of whom I've known for many seasons of my life.
Weekly food prep: Yeah, no. I'm working three days this week and am on my own for dinner Monday and Tuesday and down the shore by Wednesday. Breakfasts are burritos out of the freezer, lunches are turchicken burgers from the freezer or salads, and dinners are salads too. Boom.

Three day week for me, it'll be the weekend again in two shakes of a lamb's tail. I'm already all out of sorts on my dates and need a calendar to ground me, this surely won't help.

This unique dog who thinks he is a human turns 11 today. Happy birthday Gussie. Burgers for dinner for all!

  16. aw, 11! Happy birthday little dude! I really am jealous that you get up to see so many sunrises. That's seriously something I wish I could do better but it's so hard for me to get up. The last sunrise I saw was over the GG Bridge which was beautiful but I only was able to do it because I was on European time and our sleep was out of whack. It was so special - wish I saw them more. That's super nice of you to be the photographer for that girl, lol - I bet she was loving that for instagram. That pic of all of you is so cute!

  24. Happy Birthday to Gus! YES to a 3-day week. Awesome.
    I describe restaurants as "eh" all the time. If I don't love it, that's the first thing out of my mouth if someone asks.
