We lived life in the slow lane yesterday.
Last Sunday, our home was filled with people. Our church fellowship met at our house in the morning, Kristin's family came in the afternoon as usual, and we hosted our summer kick-off ice cream party. Good stuff.
Yesterday, we went to church, and then came home to just us. (Kristin and Brian had decided to stay home at the end of a busy weekend.)
We nibbled on cherries. We grilled out and ate in...and then for supper, I baked a store bought pizza and we ate out on the patio. In between we talked, read the paper, and watched You've Got Mail, one of our favorite lazy day movies. I couldn't tell you how many times we've watched it, but I can tell you that I cry every time. I cry when Kathleen closes the store for the last time, and again at the last scene. If you're a fan of this movie, you might enjoy this article: "You've Got Mail Turns 15: Here's 10 Things You Didn't Know About the Rom-Com." (Two things. We actually did know a couple of those things. And the grammatical error in the title drives me batty.)
|Yesterday, life was a bowl of cherries.|
|Our salad included fresh radishes from a friend's garden. Yum!|
A lazy, quiet afternoon can be restorative. (Every once in a while, that is. I'll be happy to have a houseful of people again this coming Sunday!)
