Busy Weekend-ness

Maritime Museum 2007: L to R: Medea, Berkeley, Surprise, Russian Sub, Star of India.

I’m looking forward to the upcoming busy weekend.  Today I am beginning to sketch out a bit on sail training ships, tomorrow morning we are doing breakfast with Captain Poolie and her sister before I go to work, and Saturday it will be gym and fireworks.

Who knows if I can walk from the trolley to the Maritime Museum, but I’m going.  That’s the big thing for the forth.  We will be having an old fashioned picnic then fireworks viewing off the stern of the ferryboat BERKELEY.   Since we are going to the early dinner seating, we should be able to take a tour on the Swift Boat or the Pilot before eating.

If the fog isn’t too bad this weekend, I might get some good shots for you.  I flat out love fireworks.

  • Himself:  Today is his Friday.  He too is looking forward to the fireworks.
  • Herself:  Post to Facebook, pool…and, hot tub, I discovered that heat stops the lymphedema proteins from itching madly, write, and cleanup after myself.
  • Reading:  #4 Jance.
  • Gratitudes:  I was able to hook my old khaki pants easily for the first time in months.  Amazing.


    1. Have a great time. It sounds fabulous, especially the boat tour. I am going to go watch the fireworks this 4th too. My sis and her son are coming, there's a 4th fest in the biggest park here too. Small town but fun if we don't wither from the heat. Hats and water in order.

    2. I used to love fireworks, now they are sort of eh? to me. I guess I may be turning into a curmudgeon. I want to go to them with the grandkids, but they always have plans elsewhere.

    3. Happiness is an old pair of Khacki pants. Congratulations. What's this lymphodema stuff? MY Ex had that around his heart.

    4. i look forward to comparing fireworks pics, then. i plan to be at South Street seaport Museum watching the pyros.

    5. I have always wanted to do this. I am glad we are going.

    6. Living in a place where nothing grand happens on the 4th, I envy you.

    7. Enjoy the day and the weekend. Someday, I must try to take fireworks pics.

    8. lovelove to you Mage!

    9. I wish we were going to see fireworks, but the traffic is too awful to get there.
