anyway. that was part of my weekend. it also included movie going, more food, more cooking and more fun.
how about yours. i hope it was fun. i've been on the go so much that it was very nice to just have three days where i didn't think much or do many planned activities. i made potato salad, goat cheese spread, fresh corn on the cob (picked just that morning) and had dinners with families and dinners with friends.
i sat on a back porch with friends tonight as we laughed at the dog's antics and listened to the tree frogs. the thunder and rain sometimes heavy around us while we were wrapped in safety - it was a beautiful feeling. that safety. i think of what has been given to me to feel this free - the people i've never known that gave their service and their lives to me so i could sit on a back porch, full of ribs, baked beans, corn, peas and the whatnot. and i thank them all - those serving now, those that have served and especially those that gave their lives too. i salute you with a heart full of gratitude.
