This weekend was the Newport Flower Show. Tara and I went Sunday to check it out. It was so beautiful, held at Rosecliff, one of the mansions on Bellevue Avenue.
Tara had 9 friends from High School in town for Saturday night. We went to the beach during the day and went to the Cooke House for dinner. It was fantastic. Of course on the way home, we hit the West Deck and the Dockside. We were stuffed from dinner and this nice man bought all of us dessert, “A Snowballs Chance in Hell”-think vanilla ice cream, brownie and fudge. I would go back just for that.
Monday night I went to Boston to attend my first Red Sox Game with Shannon and Tara. We were in the bleachers and it was fun. All except Tara yelling to anyone who would listed “fenway first timer” while she pointed at me. I will exact my revenge on Tara soon….By the way, they lost to the Diamondbacks. I am crossing my fingers that my friend Katherine invites me to go with her soon!!!!!!!!
Today is the first official day of summer and the traffic in Newport would support that fact. Tara has all her high school friends coming tomorrow so our house looks better than ever. Lou, Shannon, Denise and I went out “just for a little while” and ended up staying out till all hours. Of course we started at the West Deck where our new friend Jeff let us in without waiting in line, we love him, and then the Dockside. It was fun. Can’t wait for the beach tomorrow.
The weather is finally cooling off again. It should be nice this weekend, and that means the beach! I finally got my air conditioner installed in my window the right way and it worked great last night. I finished putting most of the ebay stuff I sent up here, the most I have ever had on there. Still no UPS boxes, at this point I am giving up but can’t help but peek outside everytime I get home, hoping that a box will mysteriously appear. Crap!
