Guess what people? I am on vacation! Well, we leave tomorrow, so that means that there’s still a lot of work to do. I’ve made a list, but basically have done nothing about packing yet. (As I write this, Dr. M is packing away – if I take long enough maybe I won’t have to do anything at all! Fingers crossed!) I’m pretty excited – our last vacation was to the Outer Banks after Christmas in 2018.

Spent some time with Daddy & Sue. I had put out a request on FB for friends to send cards to my dad for his 80th birthday (it’s next week), and he had already received four! (Note: I was there today & the number was up to nine – and I know a lot of folks were aiming to get the cards there right on his birthday). Lots of fun! He’s waiting until his birthday to open the cards.
No picture. I helped Dr. M do some yard work and cleaned the house – appropriate for Labor Day.

From FB: It’s Messy Bun Because We Don’t Have Water So I Haven’t Showered Since Monday day. Plumber comes tomorrow so fingers crossed! PS. I’m taking a shower tonight so quit holding your noses ya goobs. (Thanks to my sister-in-law for the use of the shower!)

First of all, the leak was fixed so we have water again. Whew! Second of all, Dr. M posted these lovelies as an antidote to a somber day.

This might be my weirdest lunch yet: lemon dill salmon on a bed of field peas, garnished with tomato & cilantro.
We leave for the beach in the morning. I do plan on checking my work email periodically, I feel pretty confident that my coworkers can manage without me. I am going to read, crochet, and look at the ocean. What are you planning to do this week? I would feel bad for rubbing all your noses in this, but it has been a LONG time since we had a vacation!
