No update for WordPress and the weird date errors caused by the latest security patch, so I’m still a-holdin’.
The weekend was both fun and painful. :shock: I know, you’re shocked.
Let me ‘splain … no, there is too much, let me sum up:
Friday Jim and I took off work early and Jessie and I spent the afternoon watching the storms roll in and northward. I had convinced Jim’s ex to let us keep her Saturday, as I had a full day planned. Jessie and I did the Shoney’s breakfast thing — we hadn’t done that in ages, and it was good to get out and spend time together, just the two of us. We ran back to the house for just a few minutes and went over to Jim’s mother’s house to swim in her pool for a bit. We had originally planned on lunch at Bento’s for some Japanese, but I forgot they closed just after lunch, so we kicked it on up to Fire Mountain instead.
After lunch/dinner, we kicked it back to the pool and then at 5 we went over to Gardendale’s civic center complex for the Bluegrass Festival. It was a BLAST! I took some pictures and hope to have those up soon. Pity we left around 9. I never was able to get a playlist of who all was there and who was left to play. I heard a LOT of Carter and Cash songs that I knew and loved, as well as CDB and Hank Williams Sr/Jr. :)
Unfortunately I had gotten sunburned despite using 45 SPF sunblock. I know, I know, you would think pale glow-in-the-dark types such as myself would learn to stay out of the sun by now!
Bite me. ;P
So yeah, I spent yesterday sick because of the sunburn. I’m a crisp bright red in the face, shoulders, and back … I think I would’ve screamed if I heard one more “Hey, looks like you got a little sun!”
*slams face on desk*
Oh well, it was worth it to see Jessie having such a good time. :)
And besides, I finally got the recipe for that awesome drink I had at Jim’s mom’s place a few weeks ago … she was even kind enough to send me a small bit to “nibble on” until I got a batch of my own made! :)
