Friday.My house is clean. My garden is weeded (almost entirely). The strawberry shortcakes sit cooling. The strawberries have been cleaned and sliced. The critters are safely ensconced in the bedroom so as not to bother the allergic members of the family.
Fast forward a few hours and the kids, their spouses, and the mother-in-law are all sitting on the deck overlooking the creek. The sun is setting and the temperature is cool, but not cold. Hubs has grilled some chicken drummies and we're all nibbling, drinking, and laughing as the conversation goes from one topic to another, several times overlapping.
If someone would have told me thirty years ago that my life could be like this I would tell them they were crazy. It doesn't get any better than this.
Happy Birthday Hubs… I think I enjoyed it almost more than you did!
