Friday - I went to Reno, NV to stock up on groceries, run some errands, and got my haircut.

Saturday - A friend and I went to Little Grass Valley Lake on the Plumas National Forest to pick wild onions. It was great fun and I got very dirty. We also brought along our wildflower books and spent some time identifying wildflowers that we had never seen before. We had lunch along Black Rock Creek.

Sunday - Cleaned house and did laundry. My parents came over for Father's Day dinner.

It was a wonderful weekend...

Cocktails and jazz on Friday night.
We took the bikes to Belmar on Saturday, so, before setting up on the beach we got an hour's ocean side ride. Water temperature was 65 degrees. Crystal clear, too. Lovely.

We wanted to barbecue Saturday evening, but it rained and rained, so cooked burgers inside.

Sunday we got another hour's ride in and then brunch. Sunday evening, I cooked for my ex and kids for father's day.

Did manage to get a bit of laundry done, too and quite a bit of weeding in the garden.

I have no desire to go to work.

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

We spent the weekend in Quechee Vt for the balloon festival. Lots of colorful balloons, music, food. Now it's back to reality. Lucky for me this is my last day of school/work for the summer. YIPPPEEE!

It's a long weekend here. DH is away and I have a cold :-( . Spent Friday night on the couch with 2 chick flicks. Worked at the food market on Saturday in the freezing cold that didn't help my cold. My friend came over for supper on Saturday evening and the family came over for lunch on Sunday. Slept until 12 today as I kept on coughing myself awake last night. Spent rest of afternoon posting pics in my album.
