St. Patrick's Day Weekend

StPatrickWhat a nice weekend. The weather was really nice all weekend. We were off both Saturday & Sunday so what more can you want? :)

Yesterday, Saturday, I spent some time in the yard, working on an area in the front part of the house where I need to dig up some vines and clear up some old brush and stuff like that. Did that for about 2 1/2 hours and around 3pm we went to Two Steps for St. Patrick's Day. Met up with some friends and stayed there till about 9pm. Had fun hanging out eating (Mike had shepherds pie, I had a corned beef sandwich with swiss cheese and thousand island dressing) and drinking (Mike had Harp & Guiness and I had Magner's Cider) Here is a picture of me if you want to see.

Today we slept in and then went for a 5 mile walk around town. The weather was perfect, not too cold, not too hot. Stopped at TK's for lunch and then continued on home, a little more than a mile. So a little more than 6 miles all in all. Now we are home and will catch up on our recorded TV shows in a bit. I think I will treat myself with a Magnum ice cream in a minute. Yumm. :)

Mail update: No letters have gone out. Still owe replies/received letters from: Jessica/DE, Kimber/Halifax.

Spring is in the air

SnowdropsI know it's not officially spring yet but the weather has definitely been very spring-like, especially yesterday. It's supposed to be nice and warm pretty much all week I think. Can't complain about that. :) 

Saturday I had to work but yesterday, Sunday, I took the opportunity to go out in the yard and work on some things. Dug up a bunch of weeds/vines. It's very slow progress and sometimes I feel like I will never get there but it was nice to be outside anyway. Felt nice to be outside in the sun.  I can definitely feel the after effects of using my arms a lot yesterday though. Maybe I need to get in better shape. :)

Now it's Monday and back to work. In more fun news we just decided to see "Of Monsters and Men" (an Icelandic band we recently discovered) in Rochester, NY on April 9th. It's a Monday so we will probably leave on Sunday and come back Tuesday. (about a 6 hr drive) Will be nice to be away for a couple of days again. 

Mail update: Letters went out last Thursday to: Tiffany/OK and Charles/TN.
