More Poppins
February 5, 2009

I stopped by the house one day this week at lunch to find this in my back yard.

No idea how this got there. Now, this isn’t the first time I’ve come across a random, abandoned umbrella.  Is Mary Poppins my guardian angel?

Adventures in a weekend
June 23, 2008

It was a busy weekend. But for once (in a long time) it was on my terms and didn’t involve work.

On Friday I went to a show downtown with Barbie and Bama. It was great – very smart, very funny. And Barbie had a classic Barbie moment when she returned to her seat from a break…Must keep a closer eye on her in the “big girl shoes.” Afterwards, Bama took off to another show and Barbie and I had late night drinks at a fun, little bar in the trendy college area of town.

Early Saturday morning I went for a walk with Bunny. Along the way, there was lots of girl talk, baby ducks and…challenging slopes. No joke. These signs were on either side of an obvious hill.

Later, I met some folks from work for a long-distance amusement park visit. The best part, driving over an hour to play putt-putt. After a brief break at home, we met up again for an outdoor, evening concert with wine and snacks. A fine summer outing.

A lazy Sunday sleeping-in eventually led to some shopping.  While navigating back roads home to avoid what seems like neverending interstate construction, I came across the following in a strip mall parking lot. I looked around, but never managed to find Mary Poppins.
