Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t written at all this year! Not that I have anything exciting to share, but I should’ve at least faked it once in the last three months.
Once again, the gang and I rented a house in the middle of nowhere Virginia. Four days of fun, food, friends and…I don’t have a synonym for alcohol that starts with F, but there was a lot of that, too. The running people went on treks in the wood, while I lounged in front of the fire, knit and did some reading. I think I, by far, got the better end of the deal.
There were a couple of roadtrips to southeastern Virginia earlier this year to visit hashiful friends. Both trips were perfect little weekend getaways involving great food, good friends and a couple of smooches from a boy that I should avoid like the plague. Nothing’s going to come of it, and I’m okay with that. It’s just nice to have a boy want to give you smooches every so often, ya know?
As we all know, it snowed a little in the midAtlantic this year. And by a little, I mean record-setting amounts of the white stuff fell from the sky. Unlike seemingly everyone else, I had no problem with the snow – as a matter of fact, I loved it! Maybe it’s because I like being a homebody, maybe because there are a lot of places I could walk to or the three people sharing my house provided more than enough human contact. Any way, I enjoyed the snow days off work and grin I couldn’t stop everytime I glanced outside and saw more than a foot of snow. Yes, I even went out and shoveled it. The only thing I DON’T like about snow is when it gets dirty and grungy and nasty. The last of that FINALLY melted away earlier this week.
But it was magical while it lasted.
