A 3 Day Weekend

The weatherman made a huge mistake and we had a beautiful weekend here in Seattle–despite his dire predictions of rain and cold. So between writing 15 pages (which is what The Plan had me writing over the weekend) I also replanted my deck pots with new annuals,

planted a new rock garden in the front yard,

ignored the rock garden still to be planted,

walked twice with my old critique partner, Darcy Carson, went for a bike ride and out to dinner with the DH for our anniversary (15 years!), swam at the local pool with the kids, helped the DH with his fence project,

sent the DH to the emergency room after a little mishap with a chisel (3 stitches and a tetanus shot later), and finally ended a lovely, busy, restful, delightful weekend with a dinner of Copper River salmon, lemon couscous, and vegies

on the deck watching the last of the weekend sailboats heading back to their respective marinas.

And you?

    Sounds like you had a very productive weekend, E! You’ll be happy to hear that I wrote about 33 pages of my new ms over my long weekend. I had no plans to go anywhere, no plans to do anything (other than some writing and chores around the house), and had a very restful and relaxing time. 🙂

    I can’t believe it’s been 15 years since I was at your wedding. I was on leave to see my Gran…when I was posted to Paraguay. Where does the time go? Congrats to you and T — you make such a terrific couple and a great family.

    It was 102 degrees here…hot, really really hot. I worked all weekend on Congressional Delegations, our tax dollars at work.
