Hi everyone. I hope everyone's having a nice weekend.
It's very hot and humid here again this weekend, before we get another cool down this upcoming week.
I'm up early today as I need to head off to Massachusetts for my niece's bridal shower. The shower is at 11, and I have a 2+ hour drive, as long as there's no traffic to slow me down. And last night we had a wedding in Maine. I responded to both of the RSVP's when both covid numbers and gas prices were much lower than they are now. I guess next week I will be testing to be sure I didn't catch covid, even though I did/will mask up for much of these events, but you can't eat nor drink with a mask on, can you?
The wedding was fun though. Much of the wedding was actually outside, and it luckily was much cooler at the coast than it was at home. The bride at the wedding has known my daughter since they were 2 years old, and I know both her and her mom and step dad quite well. And my niece is my only niece not through marriage. Since her mom died of breast cancer a few years ago, I feel like I needed to go and be there for her. Plus, she is my niece, and I want to enjoy this part of her life with her. I'm sad that I can't stop on my way home from the shower and visit my mom though, as I go right through the area where she lives. Her assisted living is in the midst of a covid outbreak, and they are requesting no visitors until it settles down. It is probably best since I'll have been to the 2 events, but it's time for a visit.
