we had "house" guests. . .which I'll elaborate on another day. .
I popped my raspberry scones in the oven and then . .
let the day unfold.
Around noon ..
when the eggs were in the cooler ..
and we were pretty much just the two of us. .
my beloved organized a picnic . .
We went the the closest park we could find. .
with our Chicken Snack Wraps. .
and found the local DQ for our dessert.
we went to the Canada Day Party that we now consider a yearly event.
(my sister by love once said that if you do something two times in a row. . .it becomes standard) .. in this case. . .it sounds like a good idea.
Our little friend Ethan. ..
calls us all names that are unique to us. . .and him. .
and we love him for it.
The guys prepared to cook our dinner.
We laughed, relaxed. . talked about summer plans. .
and ate hot dogs.
We live in a wonderful country.
Not everything about Canada makes me proud . ..
but there is plenty to be thankful for.
At the end of the day. . .we found ourselves in conversation in which we challenged each other to be kind to our community. . to be involved. . .and to seek to care for those. ..
that need a bit of love.
