Here it is 1 week and 1 day into the New Year. Looks like it’s going to be a good one. It’s Wednesday. So much more to do before the weekend gets here. I have a running to do list. I will report here on the weekend, just to show that these 3 days the top 5 things onbthe to do list got done.
There are so many great books to read. It will take me all Fall and part of Winter to read the ones I want.
The family gets together and plays board games, dice games and card games. The whole genre. We do this after church and Sunday brunch. We smile and talk about places we have gone. Imagine what kind of board games people play in different towns.
We look up the newest ones. Scope out the ones we would like to try. Play our favorites. And we laugh a lot. Nounsense is a favorite. We try to keep the game going for awhile. Skipbo is a marathon game. We have have a large family like mine. The game can last a couple of hours.
So here is to Game board Sundays. May you have has much fun on your Sunday.
This summer food will create more happy memories. Of all the things that bring us together, food plays a big part. We get together once a week and have a potluck supper. Everyone agrees on a theme. We cook from there. We want to have more time together. So for right now, we will plan the menus. Cook from one of our cookbooks we own. And create dishes from other countries. Italian, Mexican, Greek, Irish. We have such a great time when we get together.
I see how they have electronic devices that, even if you are not there at the table, you can still keep in contact. I love our potluck get togethers.
One thing about Summer is you tend to drink more. Water will keep you hydrated. Sometimes you want a little something more. Then come the slushy drinks. Orange is a favorite flavor of mine. So here is to the summer days, cold drinks and time to enjoy it all.
This heat and humidity has become bad. The weather could be worse. They are working 12 hour days. Some 12 hour days on end. I am glad to have time to cool off under a tree.
All kinds of birds in the yard. Especially robins and pigeons. When will the warm Spring air get here? Hopefully before Summer.
