I had a very nice time this past weekend -- but the whole thing flew by so quickly! I had to work on Saturday, but after work I drove to Grand Rapids to visit my family and friends. After visiting with my parents and brother a bit in the evening, I went to see my good friends Rich, Jen, and Amy. It was so refreshing to be able to just sit around and talk with some like-minded individuals. We must do it more often.
Sunday morning we (Mom, Dad, and my brother - Rob) went to a Bagel shop and had a bagel and coffee together. Then we hung out back at their house a while until Grandma came over. We had lunch together and sat around the table a long time talking. Charlie was sad he missed it. He was stuck working all weekend.
In the afternoon I hung out with my friend Dawn (and her pal Steven). We had a good time and laughed a lot. She made a housewarming gift for Charlie and me -- some hand towels and dish cloths. I love homemade stuff!
I know it has taken me a while to post this - seeing it is Wednesday already. Work has been taking a lot of my time and energy lately. Today and tomorrow I only have to work 8 hours. We were given the option to take a couple hours off, so I took it. I've just been feeling run down lately and right now I'm fighting a sore throat and the starts of a cold. Hopefully it doesn't progress into anything bad.
P.S. Dad was the one who said I should take the photo of the orchid shown above with the blue glass as a background. I think it turned out pretty cool.
