We spent yesterday in the city just hanging out with a friend (Hi Hayden!), talking and enjoying the beautiful weather. It was one of the most relaxing weekends I’ve had in a looooooong time. It was nice to not have to be anywhere at a specific time or do anything we didn’t want to do. The end of summer is coming, so Idon’t know how many more of them we’ll get. My last long weekend for summer hours is coming up (boo!) and so far we have no specific plans for it. I’m thinking if the forecast is decent, I’ll keep it that way. If not we’ll try to organize a game or two, and have fun doing that. We ran a LONG module on Saturday (12 hours, ouch!) and had a great time. All the more so when it started to pour down rain and we realized we couldn’t have done much outside anyways. It still amazes me the ferocity of some of the storms we get here. I know it shouldn’t, but it does. And this one didn’t come off the ocean, it came from upstate. I did get some cross-stitch done but didn’t photograph it. That’ll come soon though.
My parents came for a visit the weekend before and we had a really good visit. They stayed at the Wading River State Park Campground, and it was really nice. We toured eastern Suffolk County, which we have never made the time to do before. I’m going to have to take time to go hit the farmstands for more peaches this weekend! There is such a difference between the two ends of the islands, it’s like going to a different place altogether. I knew intellectually there were farms out east of here but hadn’t realized how dramatic the change was. I loved it and am now wondering just how long a commute I could handle… hmmm… unfortunately the answer I keep coming up with is not long enough!
My best friend in highschool, Mikey Butcher, is now a daddy for the second time. Little Lauren Elizabeth arrived on the 21st of August. She and mom are both doing well. Welcome to the world little one!
Thanks James for the Anniversary wishes, and same to you guys for last week! Three years... guess I really DO need to get my butt in gear on that cross-stitch. I'll post a photo soon at www.xvart.com/xsprojects.html but for now, know it's past the 1/4 complete stage!
