Fun in the Sun
Hasn’t it been a fab weekend, weather wise? This is my idea of perfection: 25 degrees and sun with a nice little breeze. I’m a happy woman.
I had a great, productive day yesterday. McHotty took Cakes to the park for the morning and I knocked off two hours of research (I have to do research for other profs as part of my funding). I spent an hour or so on my monster paper (which by the way, is a little out of control. I’m having trouble narrowing down). I also managed to vacuum the house and shower (I never thought I’d see the day when making time to shower would be an effort).
Cakes and I went to the park in the afternoon, and we had one of those rare, perfect times together. Cakes was in a mellow mood and we relaxed together, lying down on a blanket eating snacks and watching kids play in the pool.
My good luck continued this morning. We hooked up with nomotherearth and her boy at Riverdale Farm. We had a lovely time. I’ve never seen her play so well with another child. They actually held hands! And, get this…shared!!! I had to pinch myself. We visited the animals, then the babes amused themselves in the wading pool for awhile and the grownups actually had time to chat. When it was time to go Cakes gave the boy a big smooch on the lips. A perfect date.
I’m getting very, very stoked about BlogHer. I was pretty nonchalant a couple of weeks ago, but all of the sudden the excitement has kicked in. The thing I’m looking forward to most is the road trip. We’re back to six women again (Sandra can come after all! Hooray!) Anyway, don’t worry, there’ll be none of the “what happens at BlogHer stays at BlogHer” bullshit. We plan to have tons of pics, video, you name it. Now, I just need to get something new to wear. If my pictures are gonna be all over the internet I need better shoes.
