Memorial Day

28 May

i was up way, way too late last night with my friends from out of town.  We went to a music festival here in town ~ not the same one i went to Saturday.  This one draws a diverse group of people, which i like.  Ran into some people i hadn’t seen in ages.

And danced.

i love to dance.  Particularly this kind of dancing, in a crowd, where everyone’s moving to the beat.

Happy sigh…

It meant i missed the fourth Sunday munch, and that was disappointing, but i had a great time.  

And i only see these friends a couple of times a year, so after we stayed at the event til midnight  {i know, i thought i’d turn into a pumpkin ~ but i didn’t}  we came home and sat up talking until 2 a.m.

Which explains why i’m just now getting up and about… at almost 9:30 in the morning.

Sir is feeling better, but not great.  He may or may not come over for a while this evening, and since He has some family obligations this afternoon, i’m thinking i probably won’t see Him.

On the other hand, my daughter, assuming she’s not in labor, her partner, and a couple of her friends who i’ve known forever, are coming for lunch.   More good times ahead!

Which also means i need to get moving.  

But i want to take a moment to remember that it’s Memorial Day, a time to remember our soldiers.  i hate war, but honor our warriors.

    I was up late as well. Wanted to go to bed earlier, but Wolf had promised a play date.

      Well, a play date would also be well worth staying up for! Lucky girl!
