My friend likes to amuse me with random text message throughout the day (every day, which is good). They keep me distracted enough to keep a smile on my face wherever I am. Today she said that she won at a tea party. I was very confused because I didn’t know that she was at a historical reenactment of the Boston tea party (in Chestertown, MD). America beat the British!
Anyway, today I put aside the pain from my surgery and decided to drive down to Greenwood, DE to see some friends and hang out at Greenwoodstock (a local, free music festival).
The extremely generous hosts walked on stage with a baby in a forward facing carrying pouch wearing huge hearing protection headphones to introduce the next band. It was exciting. I hope my babies are that cool. Here’s a picture just to prove I’m not lying:
I like the new wordpress interface a lot. I haven’t used it since back in the day when everything was very basic. You can do so much more now.
Anyway, the concert was great. I got to see between blue (@betweenblueband) for the first time in years and they had really improved. I also got to see good friends The Paper Janes (Jess – @junegirl0603 and shane) who are always very impressive. Jess rapped a song which was very catchy and well done.
I got to see my friend Anne’s very nice house in Seaford and then got to visit my Uncle Bob’s farm for a couple hours. The farmer in the field next to him accidentally sprayed herbicides on my uncle’s property, so everything is dying. He still has chickens and a pool though, so it was good to catch up with him.
Driving across the state reminded me of the summer before last when I lived and worked in Sussex county. That was a very different time. It was bittersweet. Lots of fun but minimum wage. I miss driving my Jeep Comanche the most.
I forgot how stress-relieving blog-writing can be. Twitter updates are so short and self-centered. This is a good way to reflect. I’m pretty sure the reason I stopped years ago was because it was weird to have people reading details of my life and they would always mock me for them. I guess I just won’t share that kind of detail. Back to Newark in the morning!
