Lovely Evening

I'm leaving tomorrow for a couple of weeks at a Pony Family home. This is a summer home that belongs to Aunt and Uncle Pony, and they let our family use it for a week or so each summer. I haven't had a chance to go there for a few years, so I am really looking forward to this.

I'm mostly packed. I've done laundry. I've returned library books. I've done a thorough houseclean so the apartment will be "welcoming" when I get back (discovering in the process that W.C. Handy blues makes really good music to clean house by). I've arranged for a friend to water the plants. I am now enjoying a lychee martini.

Life is good.

An early happy birthday to Daw, because I will miss her birthday on account of being away!

I hope you have a great time! How long are you away for?

I'm getting back to Chicago on the 31st.

Ooh, lovely. Enjoy!

Oh, you bet your boots I'll enjoy!

That does sound like a lovely evening, one of those contented hours when your world looks good.

The pleasure of sitting down in a freshly cleaned apartment is a large part of what motivates me to do the cleaning in the first place!

Have a great trip!

The only possible flaw that I foresee is that all the Denson book singings in the area are over for the month. Sigh. But it'll be a fantastic trip anyway!

I hope you have a great time, FP.

So far, it's fantastic! Nice and relaxing, though very rainy.

Have a great time!

I'm right on that!

Have a wonderful time! (Beach? Mountains? Woodsy?)

Everyone's going away this summer... Time for vacation! My flist will be empty until August, it seems.

Sorry about that. But then you'll have lots of new posts all at once.
Jul. 22nd, 2009 10:14 pm (UTC)
I'm late but I hope you do enjoy and relax and allow yourself to be duly and deservedly pampered!
Jul. 23rd, 2009 12:57 am (UTC)
I am both pampering and being pampered. I cooked dinner tonight for an appreciative audience. This both relieved Mom Pony and gave me a chance to do something I like doing. Little Sister Pony and Mom Pony and I will all be taking turns during this time.

SO happy to hear good things going on. Hope you are well and having a blast this summer.

BIG hugs.
