330: weekend away (aka zephyr, a study in motion)
When one is bogged down in a multitude of ways, mainly emotionally, it is good to escape.
We spent the weekend in Green Bay, or just outside, actually, which is the home of my parents as well as Ryan's parents. The weekend consisted greatly of my hibernating indoors, venturing out to toss a tattered tennis ball for the four dogs and watch my husband do the same.
It was also the surprise birthday celebration of my dear friend Nikki, and she was truly surprised, which is always a lovely thing. She spent the evening wandering about her cousin's bar, full of an eclectic mix of friends and family with a bejeweled and sequined cup, lined with pink fur at the base.
Save the dark cloud, which I vehemently hope to--well, fix, though that doesn't quite match up with the metaphor, though disperse would be the opposite of what I hope for, in many senses, and I must also pause to point out my awful stupidity and curse myself for the cloud, as it is my fault--this weekend was a good one, tumbling into the first two days of my work week, which are in the dozen-hours-long range, full of good things, yes, but exhausting when coming to a close. Wednesday, I will allow myself to sleep in a wee bit, and then to commence the busy burden of catching up.
PS: The photos are all, save the top three, from my in-laws' home.
Soon to come: back-tracking in time to two weekends previous where Kelly and I went to the State Fair.
