Palm Springs Weekend

My second weekend in the new Palm Springs house, I'm excited.  The plans for the weekend run the gamut...


Install new phone and wireless router (fingers crossed that Verizon has set up systems as promised)

Tour friends around the new place, dinner at their lovely home, and back to my place for some time in the pool and spa


Await arrival of DirecTV installer (sigh, they're never cute) to hook up TV service

Drop into Hunters weekly 'social'.  As someone who rarely drinks and doesn't like noisy bar settings, I'll be curious to see how long I survive.  Not sure if, post dinner, I'll drop in at Spurline (AKA Flatline) for showtunes


If I drank, it'd be sitting around the pool all day drinking.  Instead, I'll probably go furniture shopping.  Not a good substitute but it's classically me.


Brunch with friends.

Likely a last spash in the pool.

Lots of fun things to do that don't involve drinking! Enjoy the new digs and setting about making it all your own.

Enjoy yourself and get some well-deserved leisure time!

I am WAAAAAAAY behind on LJ. So, I'm guessing you bought a house in Palm Springs? As a second, holiday home? Or a new home full time?

Have you left your old job? Transferred? Gone in to (semi) retirement?

Questions, questions, questions!

But gosh - how exciting. And Palm Springs does look rather gorgeous, so I'll be looking forward to visiting you there! :-)

See what happens when you get busy? LOL

No, this is a vacation house purchased with friends. I'm hoping to use it often on weekends and vacations. The job is much the same, no major changes in that regard. It's still dull as dust.

As to coming to visit, either here in San Diego or in Palm Springs, you will always be most welcome, Dom! Now all we need to do is convince you to make that trip!
