On May 23rd, Patrick and I headed out to Provincetown, MA for our first real vacation together since I don't know when. We ended up having a great time. Here's Patrick enjoying the local cuisine:

On Sunday, we spent some time hanging out and people watching downtown and then went out to Race Point Beach to do some beachcombing:

Sunday night we went to see Poppy Champlin, a hilarious comedian. I laughed so hard I cried. I highly recommend seeing her if you are the open-minded sort and don't mind a lot of very dirty, gay jokes.

On Monday, we went on a whale watch. It was an amazing day and we ended up seeing between 20-30 humpback whales.

Feeding time!

Tuesday, we went on a dune tour and then up to the top of the Pilgrim Monument.

Wednesday, we headed home as the rest of the week the forecast was for rain. We were happy to get home and pick up Saffy from the kennel. She wasn't too happy because she got a bath:

Boy I suck! It's been way too long since I last posted. I guess I've just been too lazy. Busy isn't an issue in my life usually, so it can't be that. Right now I am on a forced hiatus from yoga so I have a lot of extra time on my hand.

Since December I've been having lots of adventures with the dermatologist. I had a biopsy on a bump on my face which turned out normal and then I had a mole check in March which resulted in another biopsy on a mole on my stomach. That was mildly abnormal and the doctor decided he just wanted to watch that one. While on my follow up appointment for that mole, he decided to biopsy another mole on my groin which turned out to be moderately abnormal and resulted in another appointment to have it and everything around it removed. I now have nine stitches in my groin and two on my chest as he decided to biopsy yet another mole when I went to have the one on my groin removed. Hence the hiatus from yoga. I should find out the results of the biopsies this week and get the stitches out on Friday. I really hope this is the end of these adventures for a while. I know it won't be forever. Being a redhead, it's just something I have to live with.

In two weeks, Saffy and I are heading to Wisconsin for a two week visit with my family. I am really looking forward to it. A trip to Six Flags, a Brewer game, and a wedding reception are all on the agenda. Saffy will be very happy to have her very own Golden Retriever to play with in her cousin, Gus.

In knitting, I finished my Kai-Mei socks and have started the Cookie A KAL for June by knitting the Sunshine socks from Sock Innovation.

Patrick and I also took a short vacation to Provincetown, MA last month. I'll update with tales of the trip and pictures tomorrow.
