Long weekending...

Cell phone photo with flash in very dim restaurant.  This sushi roll is called 'Catepillar'...such a beautiful presentation.

We had a wonderful long weekend visiting family and friends.

Thursday we drove up to stay with Carey's sister and mother.  It was so good to see them and spend some time together.  Friday afternoon I left Carey at his sister's house, and drove another hour or so to visit my aunt, uncle, and cousin for a few hours.  It had been about two and a half years since I'd seen them...such a good visit.

Saturday we left his sister's, and we drove up to Arlington to see my friends Susan and the other Kathleen.  Kathleen has been working there for a few months, but will be heading home to Kentucky soon, so we wanted to see her before she goes.  We girls had a really great time chatting and laughing while Carey accomplished several odd jobs around the house for Susan...replacing a broken light bulb, repairing a light switch, reattaching a toilet paper holder, moving a husband is such an easy-going and helpful person.  Then we went to Sushi Domo and had a fabulous sushi dinner...such a treat!

We stayed the night at a hotel, and both woke up exclaiming what a good night's sleep we'd had in the most comfortable bed ever.  On the way back to Susan's, I spotted a sign advertising an estate sale, so after we breakfasted together, we girls took a little field trip while Carey busied himself with another project.

The trip was short of duration and long in miles, and even though we squeezed a LOT of activities into it, it was very relaxing and pleasant.

Today it's back to laundry and getting ready to go back to work tomorrow.  And I took some time out to take Chandler and the girls to lunch and the library...I'm so thankful we are close enough to share some quick together time.
