There are definitely worse places to watch a lacrosse game

We left the nephew's birthday party on Sunday and it was cloudy, windy and cold. We get here, where we're quite literally surrounded by ocean - and we just know it'll be f-f-freezing. There was hardly a breeze, not a cloud in the sky - perfectly wrong is what we were.

Thanks to Angie and Badger I'm thinking of trying my hand at some vegetables this year, some tomatoes for the girlie (who eats them like apples) and some greens for the guinea pig. All container stuff - easier to keep the dog at bay- plus I don't have a good spot in the yard to rototill.

Well, I'm off to read Harry Potter and the OOTP. Re-read actually - getting ready for number seven. Really though, I'm dropping the girlie off at school, grabbing a cold crystal light and the lawn chair, and THEN I'll be reading. Priorities, man, priorities.

I've lived through every second of football season, hockey season and baseball and NOW I MUST ENDURE LACROSSE?

Oooweee....it's been awhile since I've been on here, soo glad to see you're still around.

And I'm in awe of you...rereading HP. I got stuck somewhere on book #5 and have yet to catch up. Longing for that lawn chair.... *sigh*

Wow. What a view!! Dang, that's it. I'm moving north. Oh wait. Snow. Yeah, okay, nevermind.

Love the girlie shot, by the way!

Oh, and sitting outside reading with a glass o' lemonade - totally ROCKS!

#5 is actually the only one I've re-read more than once. I loved the angsty whininingness (is that a word) of the teen Potter.

Most other folks don't seem to agree with me. Feh!

I remember my first (only) Lax game--how at the end all the guys on opposite teams were hugging each other and my friend said it's cuz the lax community is so small they're all great friends, even on opposing teams.
