TWTW - the one at the lake

A three day weekend to relax in the company of some of my favorite women.

Dock time, snacks, cupcakes and shopping, magazine reading while dogs snored in my ear, floats, flags, coffee, strong women and social conviction talk, mimosas,
lake time, reflections, sunshine, tomato sandwiches and grilled corn a la Jack, country road rides, gas experiments, selfies,
new bracelets from Debbie Rae Designs, bonding time with women I love, quiet serenity, and wet your pants funny Cards Against Humanity.
And dogs. Always, always dogs, including Lori & Jack's newest lady Layla the puppy. Thanks to Lori for hosting and welcoming all of us, human and furry.
Weekly food prep: breakfast is breakfast burritos from the freezer. Lunches are baked chicken thighs over pasta salad. Dinners are corn on the cob, grilled barbecue chicken drums and thighs, potato salad, and pasta salad. Snacks are plums and peaches and sliced tomatoes.
Nails are Essie S'il Vous Play, mood is fucking pissed. If you attempt to deflect conversations away from Nazis on the street in Charlottesville, VA, in 2017 to discuss how Black Lives Matter is wrong, you might be a racist. I might address this more tomorrow if I can do it in a way where I can avoid a self-induced aneurysm. Otherwise, my Saturday thoughts on it here. I am not suitable for public consumption right now.



How was yours?

  6. Looks like a fun weekend at the lake for you! I am physically sickened by what happened in VA. I'm interested in your thoughts on it -- when I realize this is actually happening in 2017 on U.S. soil ... words fail me.

  7. So many dogs! That's my personal heaven, dogs for everyone to snuggle with! haha. I helped host a vigil last night for the victims of the terrorist attack in Virginia. It was both sad and heartening at the same time. It felt like the least we could do to acknowledge the hatred that happened and shouldn't have.

    With respect to the riots - Ive already said it on your insta... so respect that you always stand up for the cause and say what needs to be said. I genuinely respect that.
