Memorial Day Weekend.

What a great weekend!  Friday night, I volunteered at a safe house for women who are recovering from drug addiction.  The women at this place are on their way to a permanent rehab facility, so their stays can be very short or very long.  This farmhouse is usually the first stop for them from the streets or from jail or from home-- often in very distressing states.  And they also provide transition assistance to women who have completed long-term rehab stays for them to come back into the community, find jobs, repair credit, etc.  It's such a wonderful program, and the women there really touched me.  

Saturday was the first day that the pool was open this year, and I have been so excited to get back out there!!  I was only out there for a little bit, but it was glorious.  
Donny and I spent the afternoon with some good friends of ours doing wine tastings at a few local wineries before coming home at watching Hitch.
Memorial Weekend Sunday is my dad's favorite day of the year with the Monaco Grand Prix, Indianapolis 500, and Coca-Cola 600 all in one day.  So I went to my parents' house to spend the day with him and had a lot of fun.  

And Monday, I was back at the pool for a while, but by early afternoon, there were SO many people there!  I'm looking forward to a few weeks from now when the newness of the pool wears off so I can have quiet mornings there again.  The pool did give me a great opportunity to finish the first book of Jeffrey Archer's Clifton Chronicles series, and I read over 200+ pages in the second one.  I'm really close to finishing The Sins of the Father, so I need to get to the library to pick up #3!
This week I have another jury trial, so I spent some of yesterday also preparing for that.  I was all ready to go to trial today, but it looks like it will be tomorrow sometime.  Can't wait!

How was your Memorial Day Weekend??


  1. What an awesome volunteer commitment. I love that you did that!

    Also love your sunglasses.

  2. That farm house sounds amazing! Good luck at trial! I hate when they get delayed when I'm mentally prepared to go.

  3. Looks like a fun weekend. We have been getting TONS of rain. :( No swimming for us!! I've been in such a book rut here lately...need to try something new!!

  4. Your pool day picture has me really craving a full day at the pool just relaxing. It looks like you had a great weekend!! :)
