Another nice weekend at Larry's. Sweet. He sleeps during the day, so I treated myself to a quiet lunch alone. I love hot tea.
We had a nice time. The doctor told him that walking would be good for his back, so we took a hike down the road to an old rock quarry... then up a hill so steep that I was panting by the top, down to the little lake and then back the normal way to his house. Nice hike. Got good and sweaty in the sun shine.
We went to a U-pick farm for the stuff to make a wonderful salad and stuffed zucchini for diner (with pilaf and almonds and garlic bread). His daughter Carrie cooked with me. That was fun. She is a sweetheart. Then we watched videos after diner. Before I knew it, it was time to go home again.
Traffic wasn't too bad. I did not get lost even once! Not even on the way there! I could not believe it. Me... not get lost? What was happening in my reality?
Sadly, this was taken on the way home. :(
Puck wasted no time at all in climbing on top of my car... and settling down for a nap. Only he changed his mind as soon as I looked like I might be going anywhere near his food dish.
Everything was the way I left it. I accidentally took this shot as I got out of the car. But I liked it... so here it is. This is the tree that drizzles weird sticky crap on my car all the time and drops leaves year round. It is horribly messy. I've no idea what kind of tree it is, only that I don't like it. But it is a cool picture.
I had a wonderful time. But I was hardly in my car on the way home when the phone calls started. Heavy sigh. It's so nice and quiet at Larry's house. Call one was from Max who wanted a ride from H R home... adding an hour more to my drive in my scary ill car. Call two was from the poker game he was supposed to be at... wanting to know if I'd seen Max. Several calls back and forth getting all that straight.
I'm "Hello...DRIVING!" Not that anyone cares. Then Nick was hungry and had shopping list information. By the time I got home I was exhausted and wishing I was back at Larry's where it is quiet, peaceful and more.
Back to the real world where I have obligations and work. Ugh. Work.
I hope you all had wonderful weekends. I know I have been absent a lot... and that will likely continue off and on. I'll have my sat. scavenger hunt post up in a day or two... late. Oops. But I am tagging Crazy4 Coens on this post... you're IT! for next week.
Ah... Monday morning it was all I hoped it would be...
