Ahhh Saturday...

We had hoped to do a late-afternoon beach outing today, complete with li'l picnic but the weather isn't expected to cooperate. Oh well. Instead we're meeting our ex-pat pal Jimmie for lunch which will be fun. He's home from London to get his house ready for rental and then he's back across the pond tomorrow. Two years in London sounds lovely to me. My travel for work consists of an occasional visit to the Back Bay. Where is the glamour?

The home improvement project carries on - now we have cement footings in the backyard. Ever watched cement dry? Its a lot like watching paint dry, but with less action since most of it happens underground inside a cardboard tube. I'm looking forward to the good stuff - demo of the existing porch, installation of the door out of Tim's office, etc.

Tim is recovering from Korean jet lag slowly but surely. He returned late Wednesday night, then had to work the next day and got home at 9:30pm. How lovely. On Friday he was up and ready to go to work and thought he'd sit in the comfy chair for a minute, and the next thing you now it was 12:30. Oops. Oh well. Luckily most of his group travels widely for work so they know that stuff happens.

Oh, I'd love to see your project once it's finished. We keep saying how great it would be to come visit you guys and the new kiddo next summer. Fingers crossed that we'll be back to traveling again by then!

How did Tim like Korea? I'd love to hear some of his observations. I'm dyin' to go, but it will be years! Did he take any photos?
