Saturday morning sunrise. Peace. A donut-off between Drip N' Scoop and Dot's Pastry Shop. And my brother on a bike for the first time in 10 years.
Beach day on Saturday included lots of sand castles and watching Lola being an animal in the water, an all family snooze, MFD getting pooped on by a seagull, froyo, some reading, and a classic car show.
Sunday night we did family pics, trolled the boards, and ate at the Promenade. I swear to god it was more crowded on Saturday night than it was most nights this summer. And surprise! We came home to Geege now having the same shitting virus Gus had.
Sunday I presided over a very serious, uninterrupted (yeah right, not with this crowd) meeting about our upcoming trip to Ireland, then sat out with the dogs. We took a walk to the playground with Geege willingly in the stroller. Victory! Then Debbie and I did some shopping at our favorite Blue Eden and had a treat on the way home...then another treat with the birthday cake Carol got for her and MFD.spinach muffin. Lunch is chicken thighs marinated in Italian dressing cut up over salad served with the same. Dinners will be avocado toasts and quesadillas with a side of veggies. It's not elaborate but it's not eating out for the first time in a while. Hurrah.
Some days I have the words and some days I don't. Good thing this still stands. 15 years feels the same as one year. I think it always will.
First full week of work in two weeks. At least I have Show Us Your Books tomorrow to help me through. See you there!
