My weekend? Great! How was yours?

I can’t say I have had any one experience over the weekend to warrant a blog entry but I thought I would bring my small band of readers up to speed.

Friday night was the holiday drag king show. Butt-cold that night (we even had a snow flurry earlier in the afternoon). The show was dandy—I love standing up front. It is the best place to get weird goods thrown from the stage. That night I came home with a Christmas-themed paddle ball, candy and (I kid you not) a whole fresh cucumber. Yeah, king shows are the bomb.

Saturday I had to work from 8-1 and then afterward went over to K’s house to help her continue to pack and move things out to her storage shed. The good news of that activity is she was able to show her place to 3 people that day and she got new tenants! Yay! They will move in at the end of December. That takes a huge worry off both our shoulders knowing she will have rental income that will pretty much cover her monthly mortgage. Oh, and having K officially living with me? Delightful.

Saturday night we had a few folks over to watch the UT vs Nebraska football game. The game itself nearly sent us all into cardiac arrest- especially when it looked like the UT quarterback let the time run out on the last play. Fortunately they put 1 second back on the clock and the kicker made a 42 yard field goal to win the game by 1 point. Wow. My guests were an odd lot. My girl K who cares nothing about football, roomie K, my friend Anna and two friends she invited, who were combinations of entertaining and a bit odd. Oh, and 3 dogs and 2 cats. Yeah, chaos.

Sunday was our hike at McKinney falls. Since the weather was damp and cold, almost everyone punked out on us. No one came except us and Anna. Strangely enough though, it was an almost perfect hike. It was cool and gloomy, yes, but the humidity made the temp feel warmer than it was and it felt really good out. The waterfall was too rapid to cross to take the first trail we attempted so we criss-crossed over some sort of nature trail and then made our way to the 2nd trail. This one is paved, which is kind of odd for a hiking trail, but really beneficial after a rain. The views were wonderful, lots of rushing water, waterfalls, fall color and a few bird sightings. The rock outcroppings there are amazing and I think it might be my favorite hike spot in the area. I would like to go back in a few weeks and take the trail that was blocked by water. Maybe we can start off the new year with a hike on the 2nd.

One more thing—I’m going on a cruise next week. Key West, Nassau and Freeport. I’m takin Mama to the Bahamas- yay! See you all when I return on the 20th!
