My sister and her fiancé came for Labor Day weekend. They stayed downstairs at my mum’s house. On Saturday my brother and his fiancé and an old family friend came for a cookout in the back yard.
On Sunday we had mum and my brother and sister and their respective fiancés over for a big spaghetti dinner.
None of which I managed to get one photo of. There is a not very good picture of our kitchen table the following morning. We pulled out the leaves to accommodate every one. We had a red and white checked tablecloth on it the night before…I always use that one for spaghetti as it reminds me of an old Italian restaurant.
Sunday afternoon Joe’s recliner was delivered! He is now able to join me in the living room and we have been watching Lark Rise to Candleford in the evening after dinner. We only watch one or two episodes because I like to make it last. I’ve never been one for binge watching though it is nice when I’m sick.
Monday we walked over to Crocker park and spent a couple hours lazing away the afternoon watching the clouds roll by, the sun glisten on the water, and the people passing by.
Quite a few ladies were marching past on some kind of a mission to get someplace quickly but our mission was to sit and do quite a lot of nothing at all…and we accomplished it with a certain ease.
We are going back this weekend to practice it again…we don’t want to get rusty at the art of doing nothing in the park on a Sunday afternoon.
Rose of Sharon are blooming everywhere. I’m not sure what happens where you live but here in New England they bloom at the end of summer. They are most usually pastel whites, pinks, and purples…sometimes a coral colour. This summer has been beastly hot and humid and I am relieved to see them in bloom. I love the season of Autumn the best.
Tonight I am going to babysit for my sweet little granddaughter, Abigail! I will probably end up spending the night as her parents won’t be back till late.
That means I’ll be able to see her in the morning as well…such a treat for me!
Next week you’ll have so many pictures of her sweetness!
