Weekend Recap

New Orleans was a great if not short trip this time around. We arrived on Friday, socialized with several wonderful writers and even a couple of editors, caught up with old friends and made a few new ones, danced, sang, partied until the wee hours of the morning, and then were promptly told to evacuate. Fearing the evacuation was immanent, I had reserved a rental car to carry us out of the city.

We wound up driving all day and all night, arriving home at about 5:30 in the morning on Sunday. We stopped at nearly every city along the way, looking for a hotel, but none were to be had.

Sunday, we did very little, needing the day to recoup from the crazy trip back. It was nice to have absolutely nothing to do but eat and rest.

Monday, we had a cook out at my SILs house where we swam, and played various card games. It was another wonderfully relaxing day.

Other than that, the weekend was fairly quiet.

So, how did you spend your time?

we had a picnic on sunday and yesterday was just finishing up some projects around the house until mr. lime injured his shoulder and decided he needed to go to the ER. no dislocation or break but something must be torn because he can't move it without tremendous pain. they gave him good drugs. that made him happy. lol

That happens sometimes! I remember on my trip back to LA from Vegas, there was no rest room for hours at a stretch & the next gas station we arrived at had just a shed ( now you can imagine what that was like)

I hope there was no Hurricane in NO

My days...

I am glad that you all got home okay even if it was a tiring trip.

We spent the weekend doing basically what ever we wanted which means that we done some car shopping, clothes shopping, visited friends.

Last night was Tennessee Vols first game so I made chicken fajitas and watched the game.

Have a great day!

We didn't do a lot - ate, drank, relaxed!
