News of the House

Ah, weekends. I’ve heard that there are many people out there who actually relax on weekends and do things that are "fun," but I’m sure it’s merely a rumor. I submit the fact that I don’t even manage to *write* about my weekend until, oh, Wednesday.

As a sidebar, I think I need to stay out of Costco for a while. I’m saving so much money there that I’m going rapidly broke.

Things are about to grind to a halt as far as forward progress is concerned, so it’s good that I got a lot done. This weekend is my nephew’s high school graduation in Syracuse, and the following weekend is the race in New Hampshire. Both fun outings, but not suited to advancing the schedule. I need to find an activity for Saturday in New Hampshire – the race is Sunday and I like to find something local-touristy for Saturday. It always makes for a fun weekend. One year we toured a vineyard, once we went to a local Independence Day town fair, once an apple festival at a farm museum. Stuff like that. We may just stroll around Portsmouth – it’s a really lovely city. Regardless of what else we do, there will be bay scallops and lobster for lunch and dinner respectively, and I will do my best to become giddy with lobster like we did on Long Island. I should also dig out the race stuff, and minimally I need to find the hearing protection. Nascar’s new "car of tomorrow," in addition to it’s other flaws has the exhaust on the right side – pushing all that deafening sound up into the stands.

Today or tomorrow I need to organize some of the pictures of the house to take up to Syracuse with me, so I can show my amazingly successful brother the new place. I sent them a picture or two, but not many. If it’s sunny at all when I get home tomorrow I’ll take some outside pictures. But not of the back yard – we still haven’t bought a lawnmower!

Sometime soon there needs to be some Pennsic organization. I’ve got sewing to do, apples to dry, and packing to organize. I haven’t even thought about it. Good thing I have exhaustive lists.
