This week I am on triple duty at work, what with vacations, and a promotion, time is flying by and I am loving the pace.
In bits and pieces of news....LM and I had a great trip to VT with Kristi last Saturday. It was a long day but lovely, and I enjoyed seeing places I'd visited so many years ago. We brought KIA Soul back....fun little car to drive.
Kristi and Dad outside the Wayside restaurant in Montpelier....lovely place with reasonable prices for very local and homemade food.Coming back in to Boston over the Zakim Bridge. Such a pretty sight.
John was released from house arrest on Friday and has not come back to his Dad's to sleep since then. We are not sure where he is staying but he checks in and seems OK. Comes a time when you have to let go....I wish I knew the answer to finding peace with it. He is 22, what else can we do? Anyway, LM and I enjoyed a lovely Saturday evening and Sunday and the quiet was almost deafening.
Ms G appeared to have a leg/foot ailment on the weekend. She kept looking at us while holding her left foot suspended. We were beside ourselves with worry that she had an injury but she seems fine now. Her LM reports that she is now back to jumping and leaping without hesitation. WHEW.
Meanwhile, I am trying to get as much rest as I can and looking forward to a beautiful weekend with LM. There is talk of a special date. We shall see.
Next week I will be helping a dear friend with the preparation for an engagement party she is hosting for her son and fiancee.
Daughter, Anne and husband are at their home in the Bahamas and I am picturing them relaxing on a pristine isolated pink sand beach.
Sara and Samantha joined me for a band concert and little picnic on Tuesday evening.
We each brought our own picnic...Samantha enjoying hers.Midway through the concert, the bandmaster invites the children and anyone else to join in a hat parade around the bandstand. Ms Samantha was a unicorn.
