What I Did On My Summer Vacation August 16, 2011

It was recently brought to my attention that I had not posted a new blog in quite a while. Upon further investigation, I was surprised to see that I had not managed to write one blog during the last few months. So, to borrow from one of my favorite school assignments, we’ll call this “What I Did on My Summer Vacation.”

We started out the summer making some new friends, including the Indy 500 Rookie of the Year.

And then we had about 150 friends over for an open house at the new office in Carmel.

A very "grand" opening!

I enjoyed some sunny, funny days with my grandsons.

We played lots of golf.

I discovered Florida in July can be exceedingly pleasant with inexpensive golf, plentiful grouper and quiet beaches. (And this summer, it was cooler and less humid than central Indiana.)

We made several trips to local farmer’s markets and had some great harvest dinners.

I spent a girl’s weekend with my college friends.

Good times, good friends

And I enjoyed the simple joys of summer, like the sweet yellow finches  … and hanging out on the porch at “the lake house.”

I worked a lot. I laughed a lot. And now, rested and revived a bit, I’m ready for fall, a possible trip east in October, college football and digging into some fairly large projects at work.

So, that’s the update. Stay tuned, I promise it won’t be so long between posts again.
