Day 227 – Moon Rise

After working almost 11 hours today on about 4 hours of sleep, we traveled to eat dinner with my in-laws. They kinda forgot that I am the working one in both families.  I was hoping for copious wine, but was provided a mojito which was nice, but there was not seconds. Or, the kind I wanted.  Thankfully my in-laws were in a great mood – so I also didn’t need to drink to tolerate them.

TL – because I know you keep track, this was a many MANY beer day. 🙂

Anyway, while eating dinner on their back deck, we watched the moon rise from behind the foothills. It was gorgeous. Their house is outside of Portland, so the girls were on the verge of laying in the backyard to see the stars.  You know your kids are city kids when they see more than a handfull of stars and think the sky is crowded with them. Gotta get them out more.

It was a nice evening. Now I’ll have a beer and hopefully fall asleep for a full night of sleep.
Another full 9hours of meetings awaits me. I mean, they want to work through lunch.

    Beautiful pic! I’m glad you were able to survive the evening even with the lack of wine 😉

  2. Perhaps you should drink on the way there.
