Wedding Cleaning Picnic

Monday, July 11th, 2005 · No Comments

Although I realize that I already lead a pretty busy life, I always want to do more. My whole life, I’ve had more energy than I know what to do with. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely put in my fair share of lazy TV time, but living on this coast where summer time is outside time, I feel like I want to pack as much as possible into every weekend. There are so many things I want to do that we haven’t yet done: Swim at the Victoria Pool in Spa State Park, hike and camp in the Adirondacks, attend the NYC ballet (we went a couple times last year).

Saturday we headed to Northampton with Jen’s parents for cousin Maria and Dan’s wedding. It was a morning wedding with an afternoon reception, so we got all the benefits of a fun wedding celebration and still had the rest of the evening to relax. It’s always good seeing Jen’s extended family, including many folks we hadn’t seen in years.

Yesterday we spent most of the day cleaning the house, and also managed to wash Stella (Happy got a free bath last weekend at the B&B), depsite her trying to escape her fate, put on five more screen windows around the house, and even clocked in some sun time in the front yard.

Last night my mother-in-law joined us for a creekside picnic in the state park and some spring water tastings. I really love living in a place as special as Saratoga, where so many beautiful resources are at our fingertips.

Here’s to the continuance of this action-packed summer!
