Rather than refer to this as miscellany Monday, let’s go for old school blogging. m’kay?
We went to the zoo this weekend. We spent the night in Asheboro (just over 3 hours from our city of Asheville) on Friday night, so we could be at the zoo bright and early Saturday. The hotel was fabulous. My son does not sleep well when in the same room as my husband and I. It was torture and we were all tired for our zoo trip. More on the zoo trip to come this week. Promise. (This was taken a few minutes after we left the zoo.)
I spent 5 hours in the sun Saturday. I was way protected from the sun. No sunburn. I spent time mowing after the sun’s “peak” hours Sunday. So much sunburn. I simply forgot about sunscreen (and I was in a lot of shade.) Please pass the aloe. (Also, this is just a stupid, stupid move on my part. I’m usually way smarter than this.)
I bought a shimmer-y yellow nail polish and tried it late last week. My fingers looked like I had a fungus. It was gross. Major cosmetic fail. I like to switch things up and have some fun, but now I’m back to a tried and true, bland mauve color from Formula X by Sephora. I’m meeting today with people who I’ve never met before (in person) and I don’t want to scare them away too much.
This week is going to be crazy. With a capital C. Meetings today. Traveling Wednesday. Not home until Saturday. Scheduling nightmare as my husband is also traveling at the end of the week.
I didn’t log onto my laptop for over 36 hours this weekend. It was blissful. I need to do that more often.
We had pool time Friday night at our hotel, and again Sunday afternoon and my friend’s house (she happens to be my former boss.) The toddler loved it. He loves to “swim with his feet” (which means he’s swimming on his own, with a life jacket.) My goal was to tire him out. Bedtime was mostly a breeze. I love summer.
I’m counting down the days until our vacation. Beach time. Plenty of sunscreen. Lots of fun to be had and memories to be made.
