Pool, Shower, Grill, Eat, Sleep....and Repeat.

Spring was....a little exhausting at our house. That's why I'm welcoming a very slow, simple start to summertime! I love that since Memorial Day we've done little more than eat pimento cheese sandwiches for lunch....

sing along with friends at outdoor concerts....
Chicken Fried Bromance - Dave and Dan at the Zac Brown Band concert

read books bought at the grocery store...
Nora's The Inn BoonsBoro trilolgy is set in Maryland - I sort of love it!

and disregarded all to-do lists at home for spending the bulk of our weekend days at the pool. 

Having no real plans on the books is especially handy when on Friday, flooding and tornadoes leaves one stuck in the District....
Though you can't make it out in the photo I sent to Dan, the sign I'm holding says "Stranded Since 6pm"

I don't know why the center of the free world shuts down every time there is inclement weather, but the Beltway was flooded and the news in Maryland was, "If you have loved ones in DC, tell them stay put!" So, after about two crazy hours sitting in gridlock on Capitol Hill, I called my friend Julie to see if she would be my shelter from the storm. The street I was stuck on is the street where she lives, so if you believe in predestined slumber parties.....which I do, then you guess correctly that pizza was then ordered, Easy A was watched and lots of girl talk was passed while the rain poured. By Saturday morning, though, the sun was shining again and I quickly fell back into the rigid schedule of pool, shower, grill, eat, sleep...



and repeat!

What CA pool do you frequent??? Growing up I went to Huntington, but in high school Dickinson was the cool one with a volleyball court. It was the place to be seen!

Oh, that sounds nice. The creek behind our house looked like a raging river on Friday. I need to figure out how to log some pool time this summer!

Looks like you had a great weekend. And I must check out these Nora Roberts books, especially since they take place in MD. Thankfully I was off on Friday and didn't have to deal with the beltway.

I think this sounds like the perfect summer and a perfect time! I need to get to the pool, especially since I saw your pics!

Way to make the most of it, Patra! I haven't read a Nora book in a while, but I love her!

Saw Mary last week. Hope we get back to DC in the fall. Would love to see you!
