my busy weekend

occasionally I like being busy.  not usually, but sometimes.  it makes me feel important, which I’m usually not very interested in feeling.  importance means responsibilities.  but anyway.

so we went to Knoxville this weekend — left on Friday from Nashville, spent all day Saturday there, and came back on Sunday after having brunch at the Tomato Head with sisters and friends.  it was a good time.  the trip itself wasn’t that eventful, but I know at least Katie would like to hear about it, and I have some corresponding pictures to post, so….

oh  yes, I got an iPhone.  I don’t think I’ve blogged since then.  it’s very new, and I’m still learning how to use it, but it’s pretty cool so far.

We had dinner at a Waffle House in Carthage.

My parents’ front yard; it started raining about 5 minutes after this picture was taken.

We had salad and oatmeal muffins for dinner.  See above.  Everyone was there except for Joel, plus Marshall.

Then we went to the Tomato Head for brunch, which I think I already said.  Since I’m sure Matt wouldn’t appreciate me posting another picture of him, here’s another of L, Marshall, and Carla.

(Taken minutes before Josh Casada showed up to occupy the chair on the left.)

Alright, enough photo blogging.  Tonight I’m making salad and pasta… not quite sure what kind of pasta I’ll do, but leaning towards angel hair with assorted veggies, and an olive oil and lemon sauce.  Something light, to go with the hot, hot, hot, hot weather.  I hate summer.  Have I mentioned that?

  1. I LOVED reading it, and BTW, WE HAVE A POOL NOW!!! Woot! It’s 99.8% ready. I have to clean the top of the inside of the pool between the water and the rim because it’s dirty. I have two floats. Plus, we got a patio table and umbrella today. Also, we have no stairs to get out of the pool…so you kinda have to step on a crate to get out… eh, it’s a pool! So, did I tell you that I have the ENTIRE month of July off? That means we need to hang out. I enjoyed stalking your web life and seeing photos.


  2. I liked the pictures. And the commentary.

    I like the idea of being important and it meaning that because you are important, you are the one without responsibilities. haaa…
