I had another wonderful weekend.  It was much needed after a long, week that featured some unnecessary drama at work.  But I suppose each of us faces unnecessary drama in some aspect of our lives all the time.  Anyway, we'll see what the new week brings.

I enjoyed a totally "me" weekend.  I drove the 200 miles from here to Charlotte to do some shopping on Saturday - leaving at 10 in the morning and getting back to Charleston shortly before midnight.  Shopping can be very good therapy, and in this case it was.

Yesterday there was a little more with a friend...a nice walk downtown...a run along the sea wall...a few errands.  All things considered,  both days were very pleasant and much needed opportunities to ratchet things down a bit from Friday.

The issued a Tropical Storm Watch for Charleston on Saturday night but it was pretty much a non-event.  The skies her are very expressive, so as this system churned off the coast it sent winds and clouds in our direction but no rain.  Perhaps the most visible indicator of the churn out in the ocean was the size and the frenetic energy of the waves.  Other than that, it was still a beautiful weekend.

I uploaded some photos from the past few days to my SnapLog site (link here). 

I'm hunkering down for the events coming up.  I've got out of town teams coming to work at our IT lab.  I don't think the events of Friday are completely over.  And I'm expecting to get out of town this coming weekend for a REAL vacation over the long weekend.  I'm already looking forward to that....

Until then - dragons to be slayed, battles to be fought, mountains to be climbed, and magic to be performed.  It's all in a day's work....

The waves near a storm are always beautiful, but the undertow is deadly!

I suppose there's a metaphor there.

I hope the drama isn't too bad.

Have a great weekend off! *sends a drink*

Donna Since you mentioned it both at the beginning and the end of you post, It would give me the impression that whatever happened Friday at work was significant and I'm wondering if it had anything to do with your gender or your history ? I can understand as we all go through that from time to time even when we think we've moved passed it up it pops again like a bad penny. I hope the issue at work recedes into the darkness and doesn't rear it's ugly head at you again.
