a little r and r

We're headed back, some of us, this weekend, to our favorite town, to one of my favorite houses.
I'm so looking forward to sitting on the lawn and watching people pass by, to walking for my latte, to the ships bells ringing through the day.

We will be staying at the same house as last year, with K's sister and her family and K's mom.

I've ordered the groceries, done some figuring with K's sister on the sleeping arrangements and dragged out the air mattresses.

I have decreed that 4:00 pm (must figure out how many bells that is) is cocktails-on-the-lawn time. Because I'm pushy that way.

I'm off now to take Youngest for a new wetsuit. He's gotten too long waisted for last year's.
And then I need to get my act together as I haven't packed a thing - and we all know it takes me a few days.

I'm going to try to relax and am planning on observing the same guidelines as last year:
I'll post each day, but I will refrain from replying to comments and I will not be reading (unless I'm dreadfully bored, which I don't imagine I will be).
And the harbor will flow with gin...

We talked about going to that town this year, but that's all it amounted to--talk. I'm going to live vicariously thru you, so I hope you post some pictures!
