    1. The sail sounds lovely. There's nothing better than being out on the water in the summer.

  4. My weekend plans include sleeping in! And then I'll probably do some gardening and work on the novel. In two weeks, though, I'm heading to the mountains for the Colorado Scottish festival. Yes, a parade of men in kilts. I shall report back with photos! :)

  5. This weekend is mostly volunteering at local theaters and going to comedy shows, though I think I will swim in a lake at some point. :)
