August 14, 2011

First thing, Win went for a walk with meg and her dogs and her kids. All day, we unpacked and rearranged things. The house is coming together gradually. It's a good time to consolidate things and throw stuff out too. O hung out with Harry. Miles skated a little. It rained pretty hard. O and I made a trip to Walmart. Gift certificate cash in. Also office depot where they need a new roof. Miles and I had dinner at the hotel. Slow service. I labored over the imaginary baseball game, four years since I touched it. I'd like to give it another try. I always enjoyed the puzzle of it.

Win, La, Meg, Shelby, and Johanna went kayaking from Watsontown to our house. They had fun. Toby, Trip, and Rex plus all of the rest of us greeted them at the landing. Win and the girls later went to Shelby's for drinks and dinner and drank way too much.

Earlier in the day, we drove out first thing to Woodward and picked up Miles. He hurts and is bruised and sore. But he had a great time, made a lots of friends and skated constantly. It was fun to catch up and learn about what he did.

A nice day overall. Everybody stayed up too late.

Monday and a tired drag self back to work day. We bid La goodbye. She will be back later this week. O was so happy to have his momma home. During the day-- no school! It's summer!-- O played with Cooper and Harry. After dinner in the evening we all went for a walk to the park. Nice time, bunch of kids there. Toby is nuts for the squirrels.

We had a wonderful breakfast with friends at the General Lewis Inn in Lewisburg, French toast and potatoes. Then good-byes to the bride and groom and friends. Win and I visited the Greenbrier and explored it's grounds. A fine place, a jewel in the state's crown for sure. But ahead of us a long drive through Virginia. We listened to some choice albums. Back home, Miles arrived at Camp Woodward for a week of skating. He's stoked. La took him over to camp on Sunday. Win and arrived home at 7 afte a day driving, happy to see O and the dogs.

Where am I? What day is it? Oh it's Saturday and I'm on the couch in Morgantown. Win and I alone, the boys back home with La. We hit the road for Lewisburg, WV. long drive but we eventually got there and had a lovely lunch at the Stardust Cafe in town. We checked into the General Lewis Inn, an old old place where Jefferson once stayed. We got all niced up and hit the road for Alderson and the farm. Rebecca and Ted's wedding. Lovely ceremony. Hot but clear and a beautiful evening. Krista was there with Trish. The Mascaris too. Erica and Ryan. Fun times. Music and food and some homemade beer. Back to our room. Slept hard.
