Close, but No Cigar

June 26th, 2009

After a little discussion of which direction we’d go- Marcel and I finally decided on a destination about an hour from home. The weather was great, and we wanted to visit a city that we visited about 5 1/2 years ago when we first married, plus we wanted to check out the new gps systems to see how it would perform.

We headed out, and about a half hour into our drive we ran into traffic, traffic, and yes, more traffic. So rather than drive the rest of the way to the city- we stopped at a restaurant along the way that we’ve eaten at before, had a late lunch and headed home again.

Even though it wasn’t what we’d planned, we still had a nice time. Unfortunately, my dear friend Burstmode may be a little disappointed, because the only photos I made, were ones of interstate signs with different cities to share with my friend Samantha, who is arriving in one week! I wanted to do something that would get her more excited about the trip- not that she needs it, but I thought it would be fun. I haven’t uploaded them yet, but I will tomorrow, and I also took a few tonight in a nearby town of a dog playing in a water fountain. I’m not sure how they turned out, since I didn’t have the Nikon, but hopefully they’ll be cute. I wasn’t shooting for perfection.

Tomorrow morning I’m hoping for a bike ride before the rains start rolling in, and before we get busy with the preparations for Samantha’s arrival. There’s alot to be done in one week, most of which is going to be trying to get Mister M. to comprehend why he can no longer sleep in the guest bed.

What are you doing this weekend???

    This weekend I am having a very quiet Friday evening with both girls, and all of us at home. Saturday is a sleep in and lazy morning (2 loads of washing, a quick clean up and tidy) and Sunday sees a whole entire day of around and about with two soccer matches at odd locations and drop leonnie home – and THE busiest work week ever lined up. Oh joy!!!
