I know I've been "MIA" lately, but things have been busy and I've been enjoying the business.  Here's the first re-cap of the last few weekends.

It's funny how a weekend can be crazy busy and yet relaxing at the same time!   Two weekends ago was one of those.  Friday night, we had absolutely no plans and it was wonderful.  The weather was nice, and almost as soon as Ron got off work, we sat outside on the deck.   The hummingbirds kept us entertained for a very long time---chasing each other away from the red Turk's Cap flowers in the flowerbed around the deck.

(Emmi stayed busy chasing squirrels on the power lines).

We had a simple dinner of grilled chicken and corn on the cob and it was quite yummy!

As a last minute touch, we toasted some marshmallows over the grill and made s'mores for dessert!

Saturday morning, we went running.  The temperatures were in the low 60's and the skies were clear.  It was great!  Ron ran about 9.5 miles with others from his running group.  I'm a little over half-way through my "Ease Into 5K" program,  so it is getting much more challenging for me, too.  After running my program one way, I walked back with one of the ladies from the group, which gave us a chance to get to know each other.

Immediately after running, we took quick showers and then headed to the church to work at the food pantry.  It was crazy busy there, with a long line extending down the sidewalk before we even arrived.  Unfortunately, we were down one worker and one computer, too, so the time flew by.

Finally, we headed down to Cheneyville to visit Dan.  Dan was pretty excited about meeting Ron, and at one point during lunch, he played the part of protective big brother by leaning over the table and asking, "So how is your dating going?".   Dan wowed Ron by repeatedly identifying a variety of songs and artists from the 60's after hearing just the intro to their songs.   It was fun to visit him and to see his friends, too.

(Dan took this one)

The drive home went pretty quickly with both of our phones tuned to the LSU football game---Ron's had the video and mine was plugged into the car speakers for the audio.  Six months ago, who would have thought THAT would be happening in my car?!?!?
