Well, it's good to be back from DC. I sure had a blast talking about HR and Social Media @DUG2010. Had the perfect combination of geeky tech, good friends, excellent food and the perfect roomie. So fabulous. But glad to be back.
I took Thursday off to extend my time out of the office and give us a long weekend. I had Friday off and we had a gloriously quiet Easter weekend. Our friend, Ann Marie, came to stay with us for the weekend. She and Paul had a great time cooking scallops Friday night, mint and basil pesto with rack of lamb on Saturday night and saffron-infused grilled chicken on Sunday night. We are all in a food coma and have don't have to cook for another week, at least. The recipes should be posted shortly.
The weather this weekend was nothing short of glorious. The sun, the warm sweet spring breezes, the dancing trees - all of it was so wonderful. We spent time sitting with our coffee in the morning and time in the evening with our wine, enjoying it all. Samson enjoyed it most, chasing frisbees, rolling on his back and chewing his sticks.
Tomorrow, we are back at it. I don't have any travel on the books for at least a month. I hope to get back to regularly scheduled reading, writing and picture taking!
