The weather was a beautiful dry mid eighties and we had no plans for a change. I set aside this weekend for us to hang around together as a family with no appointments or promises, no expectations, no schedule. I’ll spare you the exquisite details except this - on Sunday Dan and Ella got up without me and made coffee, bacon, eggs and toast while I slept in ‘till 10:00am. At 10:05 I came downstairs to a super yummy breakfast. Dan did dishes while Ella and I hoped in the tub and then we went out for lunch, took Ella to the park, Dan to the computer store and me to the art supply house before we came home to grill out with the neighbors. After dinner and playing in the backyard the girls made these lovely hats with foamy stickers while we grown folk sipped brandy and cranberry juice on the rocks. That is the type of Sunday that can reaffirm one’s faith.
