1. I went to a Depeche Mode concert the other night. My second. I'm sooooooo spoiled to have even had the opportunity to hear that voice live once, but twice? Lucky, lucky girl. So glad all my old faves are a: still touring b: still living
2. I sat, for just a moment, in one of my favorite places in the world, enjoying one of my favorite meals. We were informed Saturday evening that my aunt's viewing was going to be the next afternoon. That gave us just enough time to get to the funeral home to be with my family and pay our respects. So even though we were wiped out from getting up at 4:30 a.m. to sell at the farmer's market, we threw our clothes in the car and drove all night. We spent two hours with my mother's side of the family and an evening and a breakfast with my dad and his wife. Then we did what we always try to do, but never really have the time to fully enjoy. We stopped in St. Augustine on our way out of Florida and practically ran down St. George St. to Columbia Restaurant for 1905 Salad. Heaven!
We "run" because St. Augustine is a 7 1/2 hour drive from our door, and any time we stop my husband must be at work the next morning.
We have done NOTHING this summer. Nothing. Haven't donned a bathing suit or even put a toe in the water. We obligated ourselves to sell every week at our local farmer's market, which left no time or energy for anything else, on top of the commitment I had made earlier in the summer to two families, cooking for them several times a week.
I was happy. I loved it. But then my husband started a new job 2 hrs. away...And then there was the miscarriage. No fun. I kind of just want to erase this past summer off the calender, but it was life. It is what it is and I am still grateful for every moment of it. Especially when I know we have simply joined the masses of people who never get a vacation, who don't have relatives who live in FL and work at Disney who can put them up and get them free passes, how we usually vacation. Depeche Mode, 1905 Salad...all the holiday we needed. And all crammed into one week. So grateful for the escape.
And here we go. #3. I'm still a little shy to say it, but...
3. My husband and I are putting in a wholehearted effort this weekend (giggle) to get pregnant. Mow, Weed Eat, trim shrubs and trees...make a baby... We have never had to try to get pregnant before so feel confident that everything on our to do list will get done. Wish us luck!!! Those trees really need pruning.
