Meanwhile, back at “Amity”….
Jim had four days off so we wanted to do something a little bit different. We hadn’t been to Atlantic City in a bit, so we headed off on a road trip
I hadn’t been to the Hard Rock casino,, and we decided we would head on up to check it out. We went up and stayed for just a few hours. After all, we just wanted a little something different.
So I managed to get away from the slot machines after actually making some money and leaving with a profit. When we got outside, I was greeted with the sight of the Steel Pier Ferris wheel. Being from the tri-state area, I remember the Steel Pier of my childhood and was happy to see it had managed to be still active.
We made our way home after a nice night. We were happy to see Kasia as she was to see us, and thus ended the little vacation.
School is finally over and vacation started for me on Wednesday.
Unfortunately it was the type of vacation where I must have picked a GI bug up from a student and spent two days sick as a pup. This evening is the first night of “vacation” where I am not perking a 101-102 fever. I feel rather decent and am taking it easy. I figure tomorrow, waking up chipper, I’ll resume my daily schedule of home life.
I started slow housekeeping after our morning walk and breakfast. Robert Shaw and “Jaws” kept us company. Kasia and I had gotten soaking wet during our morning walk. It was a light drizzle when we started: half way in, it changed its’ tune. We had a decent afternoon, and we are trying to savor relatively low temperatures while they are with us.
Gardening has been at a slow pace, as we have been getting a lot of rain. That makes me a bit sad, as I know my tomato plants will pay the price. I know heat is due back as of the weekend, so we will see. Our diet is keeping par for the course: as more fresh vegetables come in, I know I’ll be diving in with more vigor.I know our lettuce is thriving right now.
I can’t wait!
