Good Morning and Happy Friday!
Yes, TGIF! Yesterday I left work around 3:30 and headed home. We got our picnic food together and plenty of bottled water (I decided against wine) and by 4:30 headed over to Colin & Mailing's. Her parents and sister arrived a little later...Mailing was still at work, but the rest of us hauled chairs and blankets and coolers, etc. over to the park. We plopped it all down in the shade and then found some picnic tables.
Dinner was good! Corn on the cob, lots of raw veggies (carrots, celery, radishes, peppers, cucumbers), cherry tomatoes from our garden, hard boiled eggs, a little bit of meat (various types of salami), some crackers, grapes. I love eating like that!
That's Mailing's parents and her sister, Anna (and Fletch and Colin).
Mailing arrived before the play started. It was Shakespeare's Measure For Measure which lends itself to some very appropriate and timely remarks. The actors were all good; the acoustics left a little bit to be desired. There seemed to be a bit of a lag for sound to come through the speakers and some of it was difficult to hear/understand. But still it was fun.
As the sun went down it really cooled as well. I was surprised to feel chilly despite being in leggings and a long sleeved shirt (worried about ticks and mosquitoes). The play started at 7:30 and around 9 there was an intermission and that's when we left. Colin & Mailing were headed with friends up to the Hamptons for the weekend and I think the rest of us were just tired (and chilly!!). Plus, there were a lot of bugs.
So, with Colin & Mailing away for the weekend Fletch and I are on cat duty and also heading to the CSA farm this afternoon to pick up C&M's share. I need to stop at the library on my way home to drop off "The Salt Path" which I highly recommend.
Tomorrow I'm meeting up with Dee at a barn sale...then we are heading to the farmers' market (don't think I'll need anything after going to the farm this afternoon, though maybe some good bread)...and then we plan to hang out at Colin & Mailing's to knit and relax. Dee will get to meet Talbot & Marcel!
It's been getting a little bit warmer each day since our cool-down on Tuesday. I'm hoping it doesn't get too hot or humid.
Hope you all enjoy your weekends!!
