The weekend was good. I slept in on Friday, then got up and went fishing. I didn't catch anything, but I had a good time being outdoors anyway. It was nice and warm, so I saw a lot of 2-3 year old bass and pickerel cruising the surface of the pond, which is encouraging. The launch party/poetry reading Friday night went really well in every way. We had a decent crowd- standing room only. Everyone read very well, and the after party was fun.
Saturday I got up late- around 2:00 PM. I don't know why I was so tired. I spent most of the day on music things. I practiced my guitar. I worked on a music project with Billy Boy, re-recording one of my tunes on his equipment. The results were more than satisfactory. Then I worked on transferring some of my old four track recordings to digital on the computer. I made dinner for Bill and I- spaghetti with marinara sauce and shrimp. It came out pretty delicious, even if I say so myself.
Sunday I cleaned the house and cleaned my car out. I worked on the music project some more. Later I went to the ex's to have dinner with her and the kids. It was so nice outside that we sat out on her deck. Then suddenly a thunderstorm blew up, lots of thunder, heavy rain, lightening, and for several minutes, pea-sized hail fell. The first spring storm of the year- I enjoyed it. It was all over in less than ten minutes, then it got nice again, except for the air felt a bit cooler. I came home after that, paid my bills and talked to my parents on the phone.
I went to bed around 10:30 last night, slept pretty well, as I did all weekend, and woke up this morning at 7:45, which is ridiculously early for me. I made good use of the time. I picked up medicine at the vet's for Cortez. I got gas in the car. I did some banking, and went to the grocery store. I'm not used to all that activity that early. After I got home and put the groceries away I sat on the couch and promptly fell asleep. I woke up in time to get ready for work.
Work tonight is pretty hectic. My horoscope said the pace of the day would be pretty quick, and it has been. I hope that the week goes by quickly. I am excited about getting home to see my family. I am leaving shortly after work on Friday. That will put me there around 10:30 in the morning, and I will miss most all of the traffic. But, I'm jumping ahead. I have to get through the work week first. Tomorrow is my consultation with the new doctor on my up coming colonoscopy. I'm really looking forward to that.
