Greetings and salutations on this September Sunday morning! I hope you’re all having a good weekend.
We actually did something fun yesterday. Most weekends, we stick around the house and work or putter, or run errands; but yesterday we dragged the girls to a PorchFest in a nearby town.
If you haven’t heard of PorchFest, it’s a free music festival held in a neighborhood with homes that have front porches. Bands and music groups are invited to perform, home owners in the neighborhood offer their front yards (and porches) for the performances, and people are invited to bring chairs and plop on the front lawns and enjoy the music. There’s a schedule so you can find the types of music you like, and it goes on all afternoon.
Food vendors and local groups set up tables along the way, so you can grab a bite to eat, and it’s just a really fun way to enjoy some local music and interact with your community.
Of course the girls balked about going at first, but I think they had a good time.
Yes, I got the grammatically incorrect tee in the next size up. I’ll probably end up using it as a pajama top, but I wore it yesterday with jeans and sneakers. I also paid a little less than that for it, I don’t know why the price went up.
So yeah, that’s about it for our weekend excitement. I went out with a friend for drinks on Friday night, and then last night we hung out with friends in our old neighborhood — the usual, but all good stuff.
I’m gearing up for a busy week. I think I have something on the calendar every day, so this afternoon I’m planning to relax in the backyard and maybe even fit in a nap. We’ve had a few gloomy days, but this afternoon is supposed to be nice. I also really want to finish my book.
I’ve been reading Colleen Faulkner’s newest, Our New Normal, and it’s one of those where I’m going to be sad when it ends. She has a real knack for creating characters you can relate to, and I always feel like I get to know them. I’ll be sad to see it end but I also want to know how she wraps it up, so I’m probably going to finish it up this afternoon.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
