We're about to head into a long weekend, and the "end of summer" even if the weather still seems like summer...is it still summer-like at your house? Do you have any plans for this upcoming weekend? Any cookouts of picnics or outdoor activities?
No plans yet here but there are some possibilities. A friend is trying to arrange 3 couples getting together for dinner out on one of the nights. On Sunday some of the inlaws will be in town for an afternoon baseball game. Dh thinks they will stop by our house either before or after the game, I just hope that they give us some warning. Summer is definitely still going strong here, we've been having some warmer than normal temps, so watering will be on my schedule. And figuring out more ways to eat cucumbers, of which I have a couple dozen!! Beyond that, just trying to stay cool by running the AC every afternoon.
Today we saw an exhibit at the Natural History Museum, it was a traveling show called Pirates! based on the recovery of the pirate ship Whydah that sank in 1717 off of Cape Cod. Very interesting exhibit with lots of very well preserved artifacts, and lots of general information about pirates in that era.
I've been having a lot of trouble with the boards, has anyone else? Its taking over a minute to load each page. It was timing out when I tried to log-in so I haven't been able to post for a couple of days. Supposedly "they" know that the problem exists but I don't know anything more. Hopefully I will be able to log in again in the coming days but if you don't see me around that's the explanation.
I hope that everybody has a relaxing long weekend.
