i hope you all had a wonderful independence day. we got to spend time with some dear friends and one in particular that we haven't seen in awhile. he has been missed and it was really good to see him. we ate, we drank (many a virgin cocktail for me), we swam, we lit fireworks, we stayed up way too late... the typical fourth of july festivities i suppose.
today was a day for staying in our pajamas (for the most part at least.) aubrey and i took turns napping on the couch. we watched cartoons, a bit of bad tv, a couple of movies and snacked on comfort food most of the day. we did manage to sneak out for a walk and a bite with birdie this afternoon. we tried a new french restaurant that opened up around the corner from our house. i had the lunch special: tomato bisque, a small salad of greens, a ham and cheese crepe and a chocolate ganache crepe for desset. it was pretty good and only eleven bucks. we will be back again.
tomorrow it's back to real life for us. it was fun acting like kids and playing hookie from most of our responsibilities for a day, but there is laundry waiting to be done and two bathrooms in line to be cleaned. we have some special house guests arriving saturday afternoon. my aunt and uncle are coming in from california for a short visit and i am thrilled. i don't see my family often so this is quite a treat. so off to bed i go, i've got a busy day ahead.
