TGIF



Hi! I'm still here! Admittedly, though, I have been a bit absent from the internet this past week, giving myself a small mid-August internet detox--it's been nice not to be chained to the computer or mobile internet 24/7 for a change.  But that doesn't mean that life itself stopped this week--friends visited from far away places, meaning running around, sight-seeing, strawberry-picking, food-eating, and ice cream-sampling galore.  Then a bunch of meetings at work, and then a quick trip to a local cannoli factory with a friend--something we've been meaning to do for a while now and finally got crossed off our list.  It's really no wonder I found little time to sit behind a computer this week, and I kind of liked it like that.  :-)  This weekend promises to pack a bunch of excitement in, too, between what's supposed to be a meal of a lifetime and the Glee movie (yes, the Glee movie!), so have a great one, and I'll see y'all on the flip side!

Report!  How was your week?  What excitement do you have planned this weekend?

[Edit: by popular request, here's the cannoli factory. They aren't open much in the evenings, but if you can make it, I'd definitely recommend a visit!]

  9. Fig Fest!  Yummy Yum!  Love Fig Fest where they celebrate everything fig.  Restaurants and local producers vie for your attention and vote as to who is the best.  This year they are adding local vineyards and wine tasting to the mix.  Look forward to this all year. 

    Tonight is a bar-b-q with fresh sweet corn.  Tomorrow is the Micheal Buble concert.  GREAT weekend planned (once I finish cleaning the house....)
