Last weekend was all too brief, and, as my weekends have become, full of activity both mundance and exciting. Of course, the concept of exciting is a relative one.
- Friday Evening
- A farewell happy hour for a contractor becomes a longer evening of conversation and beverages. A good time was had, but I wound up staying out much later than expected.
- Early morning errands following a quick workout. Groceries from Wegmans, some house-sitting to check in on my friends’ cats, picking up some dry cleaning, and other miscellany. I am convinced to come out for a CD release party at the 8×10, and I wind up having a nightcap. While heading to my usual location, I ran into a high school friend of mine I have not seen for some time–near 15 years. I now have his business card, and I will be getting in touch with him soon.
- Some local folks I know from the Internets convinced me to participate in a “Sunday Funday” duck tour. Prior to meeting everyone in Fell’s Point, though, I stop off at the Farmer’s Market beneath the Jones Falls Expressway for some essentials–vegetables and coffee. It is then that I realize that even 8:30 AM is not early enough to avoid the onslaught of slow-walking and stroller-wielding shoppers. Clearly, I am not one for large crowds where I shop.
Sunday evening was spent in relative solitude, and I wound up napping on my couch for a little bit before going to bed. I am, however, looking forward to this holiday-shortened week. It will also help that I will be taking a couple of days off this week in addition to the company holiday.
