You Can't Handle the Cuteness!
Love the NY monsoon post!
Here's another of Charlotte, with her mama Chelsea. I've got a full weekend, including Sunday brunch with these ladies.
This is going to be one of those Summer Weekends. It's Hot here. Not just Seattle Hot, but even Everywhere Else Hot. It would be hot even if we were in NY. I'll have the top down on the car and probably get a sunburn and change clothes several times a day, but that's okay, because it's fun to take a shower in the middle of the day, and go outside with your hair wet and flip-slops on your feet and just a summer dress.
The SGEN company picnic happens tomorrow. I'll get up in the morning and have an iced latte at my Local Coffee Shop (I'm into capitalization today). Maybe Bobby will make it - he's my local barista, you know. That was a riddle in the Ode to Bobby post, but I don't think anyone figured it out. Then I'll drive north to a place near Snohomish where I can take my shoes off and have my feet in the grass, and the picnic will be more fun than usual, because it's been such a lovely month at work, and now that people know about my writing and the ranch adventure, there are a few more non-work topics to talk about.
After the picnic, I'll zip down to Boss Kirsten's house, probably shower again in her big house, and then head out with her to see Pink Martini at the winery. Have I told you about her group of girlfriends? They are all a few years older than me, and were sorority sisters together at Western. If you are like me, the phrase "sorority sisters" may not conjure up the best images, but sorority girls from Western seem to be considerably less noxious than the Typical Sorority Girl. They are a very close and loyal group and I've been impressed by the way they have supported each other over the years. They call me "New Girl", even though I first met them several years ago. They could be very entertaining at the concert, since they like their wine.
Josh S. is having a party that same night, maybe I'll drop by. Did you know he lives on 18th and Aloha now? Everyone's moving back to the hill.
Then Sunday there's the brunch, and I really need to do some laundry and some writing. The next Pamfa workshop starts August 14! We'll be there the weekend before for Pam's Take Back the Ranch party. Can you imagine it?
Tonight, right now, I'm about to pack up and have dinner with friends, Mikalea and Henry and their two kids. After that, I drop by to get my presents from Elvis. Apparently he brought me trinkets from Europe.
Have a great weekend!
