Weekend Relaxing
There is a strange little part of me that wants to start getting ready for Christmas. Most of me wants to squash that part down as I scold, "Not until after Thanksgiving! Stop it!" It's challenging, when surrounded by Christmas paraphernalia everywhere, to not feel like the season has begun already.

I went shopping on saturday and I spent a ridiculous amount of money on underwear. Oh yes Victoria darling, you own me. I now have 3 pretty new bras (I'm wearing one now. It makes me look nicely full.), and 4 pretty pairs of panties. However, I remembered yesterday evening that I received a bonus last week at work. So it's okay really, to splurge on something pretty for myself.

Saturday night I went to a party for D's birthday. I saw a whole bunch of friends. It was great to catch up...I don't think I spend nearly enough time with friends these days. I also got to spend some quality time with C, which is always nice. I'm glad we've remained friends.

Yesterday was a wonderfully warm day, perhaps the last we'll have this fall, so I spent some time enjoying it. I walked to the drugstore and picked up a few items I needed. I tried to buy marshmallows, but they didn't have any. Neither did 7-11. But I enjoyed a nice walk anyway, and now I have milk and cereal and some breakfast bars to eat.

(My kitchen had grown frighteningly empty of food. I opened the refrigerator on saturday and discovered that my only options were: 4 varieties of diet pop, 2 dill pickles, applesauce, or some veggie burgers that I hadn't eaten because I really disliked the first one I'd tried. I ate another veggie burger anyway, and even putting a bunch of honey mustard on it didn't really help the taste.)

After skating last night, I stopped at the grocery store and finally found some marshmallows. I also got chocolate, graham crackers, and 2 frozen Lean Cuisine pizzas. Things were definitely looking up.

Then F came over, and we went for a motorcycle ride! That was really neat. Then we lit a campfire on my deck...probably the last one of the year. It was a lovely night, and the fire burned well. The s'mores were tasty, the marshmallows very sticky. My hair smelled like smoke. My hammock was comfy. I stayed up way too late enjoying it. A good way to end the weekend...even if I'm tired today.

Yes! I had a few "life is good" moments over the weekend. Another was sitting curled up in one of those big dish chairs, a glass of wine in once hand, a chocolate cookie in the other, chatting with friends.

So, this weekend you indulged with underwear and I went to a Rocky Horror Picture Party and saw Chicago at the dinner theater. Seems be a busy weekend for underthings! :)

Really, undergarment weekends are the best kind.

s'funny, your ballon is the same color, almost the same shade (a trifle darker) as the color I've chosen to represent you in my friendspage. Thanks...
