Despite the sad news about my cousin the rest of the weekend was ok. My parents have a pool and we have been introducing Luke to the water. (I’ll spare you a picture of me in a bathing suit). It was 102 degrees on Saturday, so the swim was very welcome. M and I went to our favorite lunch spot and I had my favorite summer drink:


I post a lot of pictures of alcohol, don’t I?

My dad and I went to the farmer’s market and purchased some free-range, grass fed, no-hormone steaks. I call it left-wing beef, which is fine with me, because that’s how I roll. I also had to get a picture of the house next door to my parents. He’s ready for the election, I think.

I wonder who he's voting for?

That’s a political yard sign, Texas style.

Almost every Sunday we have dinner with our friend DD. He and I love to cook and M loves to eat, so it works out well. I brought the left-wing beef and we had some surf and turf. It was awesome.

As I start another work week, my mind is wandering. In fact, this song keeps going through my head. I think that as a result of not having a summer vacation my focus has decided to go on a trip without me. I hope it went somewhere fun . In the meantime, I will keep daydreaming until its return.

Here from L&F...just wanted to extend my condolences on the loss of your cousin. My husband also lost his 39 year-old cousin to suicide last weekend. So sad and absolutely tragic. I hope that family and friends are a source of comfort to you during this time.

Have a mojito for me!!! We figured the other day that between pregnancy and breastfeeding it has been about 15 months since I had anything to drink!

And Ben Folds :) Nice music choice...
