Hello Everyone!

I realize I have left you on the edge of your computer chairs in anticipation. My hair.....well, could be worse! It came out the color of a carrot, and so we had to buy another box and the only color that would cover it was a pretty dark brown. It passes for normal, which is good enough for me right now:)

As for the weekend, on Saturday evening my husband and I drove to the water with Roxie grinning away in the backseat. Here are a few photos:

Today I met up with one of my best friends from highschool, and her mom made us waffles. It was a treat! Then I went to about 15 outlet stores and came home empty handed. Not necessarily a bad thing. I was in dire need of the help of my genius shopper friend, who was away on a fabulous camping trip, but I got to see her and her family this evening, which was great!

I just hung up the phone with my friend and coworker Beth, and we decided to go kayaking after work tomorrow. We are lucky to work on a college campus and too rarely take advantage of all the wonderful and free activities it has to offer!

So that is my "weekend update". I hope you all enjoyed yourselves this weekend. I have a very special trip coming up next weekend. Can you guess where we are going???

Sounds like a GREAT weekend Sheila! The sea, loved ones, shopping that didn't cost much, waffles... who could ask for more?

And kayaking sounds like a lovely way to round off a day. It's a very, very long time since I've done that and then it was only a couple of times but I have vivid memories of it and those late afternoon/evening sessions were my favourite - warm light, calm waters, close to nature... magical. Enjoy!

Are you going camping next weekend? Or is it farther afield?
