Weekend Update

I watched a great lacrosse game this Saturday w/Johnny's Beach team. They started out 4-0 w/the other team leading and ended 6-4 Beach. It was a very good game. Earlier that day Johnny had played a game w/Beach in Lewes DE. When he saw me arrive at the afternoon game he came running up to me and SURPRISE! he had cut off all his curls! He had called me earlier saying he wanted a buzz cut and I said sure. I didn't know he was stopping between games.

He looks more like his brother now. Always handsome, curls or no.

Taylor arrived home. Glorious. Love having her home again.

We had a nice dinner and she made me the BEST cosmopolitans EVER.

Yes my friends, we sent Taylor to college and she came home with some real skills. Cosmopolitan-making skills. Can I ask for more?

Sunday was quiet with John and Johnny away at ANOTHER lax game in B'more. I filled way too many pots with flowers in various locals around the place. I did always want to live in a flower garden and between John and I it is pretty much happening.

Taylor's friend from High School, Kevin came by on Monday night. He went to culinary school in RI. We had a really great dinner with a few very good tips from Kev. He works at a local restaurant and always hooks us up with awesome food when we see him so I tried.

Judging from those spotless plates I didn't do too bad. Oh yeah. We had more cosmos. Gotta use those skills while I can....

Why yes Carla I can. You know I wouldn't let her go w/o teaching me. Chill the glasses. (We got to the point this weekend where we would just immediately store them in the freezer when we were done for the nite) 3 counts of Absolute Citron or mandarin (both were good) 1 count of GM. Splash of cranberry (we had a lite kind)and a little lemon juice. (Real lemons) Once we ran out of lemons and used tangerines. Equally pleasing.
