While I Was Away

by - July 06, 2011

Since I still have little, if anything, of substance to say... I thought some of you would be interested in what I did while I wasn't updating my blog.

I had to work the 4th of July, which meant I didn't get to go to a fireworks show for the first time I can remember. It wasn't all a loss though. I found sparklers in my desk drawer, so my anchor, sports guy and I went up to the roof and had our own celebration, and while we were up there we could see about 3 different sets of fireworks going off around the city.

My work holiday was Tuesday, and since I didn't have to be at work until 5 p.m. Wednesday (because I have to be at work Saturday morning at 6:30) I made a one-night trip to the lake to camp with my mom. We spent the day lounging by the water or floating close to shore and reading. Because I had nearly two full days of sun I now have a not-quite-white but definitely-not-tan bit of color.

Also, I've been thinking about changing the name of my blog, so stay tuned for that possibility.

  1. I'm glad you found some time to get away from it all, Ashton. If you're changing the name of your blog be advised that Shady Dell Music & Memories is already taken! :) Stay well, kiddo!
