Balls! I Mean Tennis Balls. (Plus Tennis and Zuma, Too...)

We went to play tennis with Mitch for a bit, this evening. Well, we played until it got too dark to see, anyway. (grin)

We also went earlier today to buy a case of balls. We hadn't done that since 2006, so we really needed them! (We were completely out!) No tennis balls is serious business around here. (smile)

Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I also played quite a bit of Zuma today. We remain hooked, after all these years, and play it frequently.

I have picked up the lawn chair cushions, as we're supposed to get rain over night -- and I don't want a repeat of the last time the cushions got soaked when company was expected! (heh)

In light of all the things we have this week, I'd wanted to get my hair cut -- and maybe get a manicure and pedicure, too. But it's simply not going to happen, as there's just no time for it.

We have the Summer Board Meeting (Thursday night), Staff 'party' picnic? (Friday) and the gathering at Mary and Mike's (on Saturday). Along with normal work, of course!

I'd been thinking a Day of Beauty type thing, but it's okay. At least we did tan today, and plan to tan again Wednesday night, too (at 9:00).

The gathering last year at Mary and Mike's was wonderful!

I'm surprised I never took the time to actually post details about it, but it was one of my favorite social occasions all year long. The conversation was so stimulating and intelligent! I'm looking forward to seeing all those lovely people again. (And I loved Mary and Mike's home and felt so comfortable there...)

This year I'll take along my camera and try to snap some photos, I think...
