Weekend Recap

Friday afternoon I had to drive to Muskogee to pick up my son. He was extremely homesick as he’s apt to be when he spends an entire week away. We missed him something fierce as well.

Friday evening we went out to eat at a local restaurant. After dinner we played video games and called it an early night.

Saturday we went to Bass Pro Shops to look at their big boat sale. Yes, we bought a new boat and no I don’t have pictures yet. We signed paperwork, but I won’t actually take possession of it until this Thursday. It is a fully loaded 2008 Sea Ray 205 Sport with a wakeboard tower, racks and integrated Bimi top and a tandem axle trailer with a swing out tongue.

Saturday night we went to see the Tulsa Talons. I’d never been to an arena football game before and found it quite the treat. It was like regular football on speed. The field is half the width and half the length of a standard football field so there is a lot more touchdowns. It was very exciting and a good time was had by all.

Sunday we decided to go for a leisurely jog before this week’s storms had time to get into full swing. The wind was still absolutely brutal at times gusting up to forty miles an hour and it seemed we were running against it no matter which direction we turned. We only managed to eke out three miles before we called it quits. It felt like we ran six.

That afternoon we went to my nephew Jordan’s birthday 5th birthday party. He is just adorable. It didn’t matter what he opened, that was instantly the best gift ever. Ah, to be young again…

Sunday evening we just battened down the hatches and weathered out the next round of storms. This weather pattern is really getting old. I’m just saying…

So, how was your weekend?

In a word....HOT. Here on the east coast we set record temps all weekend with more today. So I stayed inside and wrote, wrote, wrote... What else?

I spent all day reading in the garden in the sunshine yesterday, well apart from when I cooked the Sunday Roast and then cleaned up the kitchen.

We were dry over the weekend, but it rained most of the day here in the metro-area. At least it was cool. Tomorrow hot and muggy, weatherman says. I'm cleaning house and getting ready to leave for Florida. Sounds like you had a neat weekend.

Oh, that sucks about your transmission, Lime. I hope you can get the car repaired soon.

Oh wow, Anny. that's about the only thing a good writer can do under such circumstances. :D

That sounds like a lovely way to spend the day, AK. :D

Oh, yeah yesterday was definately a wet one, Donnetta. It looks like a brief reprieve for the next couple of days though. When do you leave for Florida?
