LONG WEEKEND + 3 = :-)

Day Three into my respite from work and looking forward to Three More.  Wow, this feels good.

Had friends over Friday night for Mudslide SnoCones.  Was nice and relaxing.  Good conversation and laughing at regular intervals.  Minimal hangover on Saturday…

Last night was Little JuJu’s last night here with us.  We called Mama before bed and there was a lot of “I can’t wait to see you“s going on.  Then before tucking in, he and I read some selections from A Light in the Attic and giggled non-stop for an hour or so.  Shel Silverstein sure knew how to entertain seven-year-old boys and fifty one year old women my age.  The Kid must have been tired.  I left the room to ask PD a question and he was sound asleep two minutes later when I returned.

We’re leaving this afternoon for New York and hoping for minimal reasonable Holiday traffic.  The route we take, although an interstate, has some really pretty sites along the way including Moraine State Park.  The skies, for some reason, always seem to be gorgeous around those parts.

Y’all have a good weekend and a Happy July 4th.  Be safe.  K?  Bye.

  6. we don’t ahve that book but i’ll grab one since i trust your taste in kids’ books 🙂 being a kid yourself and all.

  7. Piglet, I’m sure Luke would love it. And you would have fun reading it to him. He’s at the perfect age for it. Actually, I recommend all Shel’s books. “The Missing Piece,” though, is geared to an older age group.
