Weather, Weekend and a New Week

Last weekend was quite terrible, if you’d only base it on the weather. But the weather is beyond anyone’s control, and we can only do so much to protect ourselves from its scheming ways. I’ve always told myself to not let the bad weather dampen my spirits, and I think I’ve succeeded in making the past weekend productive for me despite the not-so-cooperative weather.

Despite the lack of beach trips, I am blessed to be given the opportunities to attend several fun blogger events. My last was this food tasting at the Flying Pig in Eastwood. I always have a great time talking with fellow bloggers while learning and enjoying new things. Oh well, I better stop complaining now. I’m still lucky, after all, having these things to keep me busy. And happy, too.
