This is going to be such a complicated, but ultimately very nice and relaxing, weekend. Summer always seems to get like that.
Last night I went home after work, walked Dog Hazel, fed Dog Hazel, gave Dog Hazel a frozen treat to entertain herself, and then went to pick up Friend Dina and see Bhavesh Joshi.
(This song video was not included, even over the end credits. Very disappointing)
Then, I got back to my place around 11, and considered grabbing the dog and my overnight bag and throwing them both in the car and hitting the road, getting to my family’s lake house around midnight. Before realizing that I was way too tired to make that a safe option, and not doing it.
(My party pretty much ends around 10:30)
I’m excited to get there because I have the house to myself completely for only the second or third time in my life, but it’s not scary because I have fierce Dog Hazel to protect me. If any intruder arrives, she will drop and pant until they are so worried for her that they leave (she does not do well in heat).
I am writing this post in The Past, so I am not sure what happened this morning. It was one of two things. Either I will wake up super early, drive straight to the lake house, get the dog settled, maybe take a nap, and then drive off to see Veere Di Wedding.
Or I will sleep late, and end up going to see Veere Di Wedding from my apartment, then going back to the apartment, grabbing Dog Hazel, and getting to the lake house in mid-afternoon instead of early morning.
(This version is so much better!)
And then I will be DONE! All I have to do is write a review of Veere, and Bhavesh, and the Sunday fanfic which is just a good time anyway, and I can spend the rest of the weekend sitting on the screen porch with Dog Hazel and a good book.
(I packed the Savitri bio just in case I felt like reading something thick and deep instead of light and fun. But I probably won’t)
