It’s my day off, so I thought I’d check in (and stop bloggily riding Wrong Hands’ coattails)!
Had a wonderful if brief weekend with eldest granddaughter who flew in from the midwest. We toured the harbor of Portsmouth out into the Atlantic toward the Isles on a cute little boat, and not only did we see history and lovely lighthouses, but also a harbor seal, a bald eagle and some sort of dolphin. We came back into harbor behind an enormous tanker being aided by the tugs. I have to wonder how much (little!) anything down there has changed since the late 1800s.
Our lilacs are nearly but not all the way in, so I had to bury my nose in one of our clients’ lilac clusters where no one could see, yesterday. O, lilacs…
Daughter has been coming to Mass with me on Sundays, lately, so we made a stop at Burlington’s new store after to spend our Mothers Day gift certificates from my son/her brother. New Balance walkers for me and some lovely perfume for her with change left over!
I’m not wild about being in Memorial Day traffic, so I’m thinking we’ll keep all of it local — Mass here, then a picnic/laze on the river I pass by each day on my route. It’s just so open, so serene, and perhaps not so on Sunday — we’ll see! I/we will go to the cemetery the following weekend; I’m pretty sure everyone will still be there (unfortunately). Perhaps I’ll get some grass seed into the ground, here, on Monday.
I hope you had a great weekend and have really exciting plans for the coming 3-day. Got family coming over? Ah, I hope so.
