Finally the weather seems to have broken a bit. It actually feels wonderful out tonight! It has been a wonderful weekend.
We got up early, early Saturday and met our son for breakfast at the Koffee Korner in Lansdale - a small, but great place to have breakfast. Then we set out for Treweryn Farms Trail in Lower Gwynedd...a place I used to walk with my Dad. It is a beautiful trail that is not strenuous in the least which is a good thing since it was very, very hot and humid before 9 a.m.
We walked for about 1.5 to 2 hours which was longer than Fletch was hoping for. Funny as he is in much better shape than I am, but is also much more uncomfortable in the heat and humidity. By the time we were done walking, I could have wrung out my tee shirt. We heard some birds and bull frogs, but only saw a few deer.
After a shower and some lunch, I spent the afternoon reading, napping and knitting. A perfect day!
Today I made red beans and rice for dinner (love me some Cajun food), did a bit of shopping - found some great shoes at DSW for half price and a couple of cute tee shirts at Old Navy. Oh, and check out my new slippers from Fletch:
Love these! I had seen them at LL Bean and told Fletch and, since yesterday was my B-day, I got them!! It's still a bit hot for them now, but come winter, they will be so cozy!
Tomorrow it's back to the work grind, but only 3 weeks or so and I will be heading to North Carolina for my annual Sisters' Weekend. I don't have any "blood sisters," but my best friend for over 50 years has two sisters and they all adopted me many, many moons ago. Once a year we all get together (rotating where we meet) and have a spa day, cooking, drinking wine, shopping, talking, more food, more talk, more wine, etc. It's fabulous! And exactly what my soul needs. Can't wait.
