And the beat goes on . . .
In other news, we were happy to see Ian Thursday night. He stayed here before catching a flight to Minneapolis. He'll be back again Sunday night. Sounds like he's having fun so far. Don't know if he'll end up there. I don't know if he appreciates what living in such a cold climate entails . . . like shoes on a regular basis.
While I was (ahem) in Paris, Mike did the kitchen counters with concrete. The counters are awesome. However, they looked awful with the gray of the cabinets. Now our kitchen looks like this. The backsplash is pallets - easy enough to change when we get tired of them and can afford what I really like. ;)
Other things I have neglected to blog about . . .
- Mike's parents came down to see one of Andy's races. They didn't realize they had signed up for hard labor. They helped us with food for the race and to get ready for a party after the race. It all worked out. Andy's boat won by a huge margin - which is especially fun for people watching who have never been to a regatta. The party was equally fun. We are so lucky to know such a great (sometimes weird) mix of people! There was food, a birthday celebration, more food and occasional bursts of singing. Andy's friends made clean up easy - there was NOTHING left over. (Andy is second from the right in this picture.)
Hope all is going well in your worlds. Next weekend we head to Sarasota for the state championships. I'll try to take pictures. I'll definitely collect stories.
