A Blanket on the Ground

Get the Ball

Yesterday was beautiful though the day started aimlessly and a little bit sad.  Steve and Jessie showed up in the afternoon and we brought out Grandma’s green and white star quilt to sit on the sunlit grass in the front yard facing the road.  Motorcycles and convertible cars cruised past as we played with the dogs, tossing them bits of cheese and sending them racing after an orange tennis ball.   We ate ham and roasted asparagus and devilled eggs and had wine.  The boys wrestled in the fresh-cut grass and did cartwheels just like when they were little. The fresh air, filled with bird song, made us drowsy in the sun.  It was a perfect spring day.

    It was perfect, an afternoon straight out of a book. I don’t think it could have been written better.

    I’m glad that you had a wonderful day. We had a great day to. We didn’t have the kids until evening but we went to a cook out at some friends. Then when the Mariah and Darren got home we had a easter egg hunt were they each had 93 eggs to find. They had fun doing it. Miss seeing you. Love Ya A Bunch.
