Hi blog. Remember me? I have a whirling twirling spinning spiraling mish mash of about a million things going through my head right now so I'm just going to dive in and unload a few of them here. You're excited I know.
Hubs informed me last night that I hadn't been on my blog since September 4th, and that was the Hodgepodge which doesn't count. I mean, it counts but not really. No offense Hodgepodge!
Let's see...hubs had a birthday over the long Labor Day weekend and it was delightful. All except for the crazy hat-boat hair I had going on, but other than that delightful. I'd like my coffee here every morning please.
My sister and her hubs and their 7-year old son invited us to spend four days on their boat down in Chestertown Maryland. That's pretty much our idea of a perfect long weekend, and my brother and his wife came too, so lots of fun.
Hubs finally got his feet back into a water ski which made him ridiculously happy. That's exactly how you should feel on your birthday, right? The skis were too small, but he didn't even care, he was just so glad to be back on the water.
When we were first dating hubs skied a lot, and I gotta tell you it made me love him a little bit more than I already did. He was always completely fearless on waterskis, and if you don't believe me, just ask a sailboat missing a chunk of its hull in an East Tennessee lake and a couple of cows who never saw him coming back in 1982.
At the ripe old age of not-23, he's still pretty fearless on the water, still trying to kick up a big spray, still making it look easy.
He gained a couple of new fans that day.
The weather was gorgeous the entire weekend, and the scenery was so beautiful. We love this part of Maryland, and if you're water people like we are you'll love it too.
It's hard to beat a crab feast eaten with a view like that.
Unless it's a view like this-
I made these chocolate cupcakes which have a sinfully delicious blob of ganache dropped into the batter before baking. So delicious! My nephew declared them the best chocolate cupcakes he'd ever eaten, and he's something of an expert on the topic. I copied a little boating theme for the decor that I'd seen on Pinterest and they turned out cute.
I've got more, but this feels like a start...
A peaceful easy happy summertime memory kind of start.
Could He Do It?
