* When we had 3 kids at home we began to set aside one day of the week on which we left the house and spoke of nothing child or business related. Through the years what we did on that day has varied and the things we escaped have changed. Today we sat by the res. reading, talking of books, while watching the late summer paddle boarders glide and the eager dogs dash to the water's edge.
* As the twilights pass we watch the moon daily change shape, always dependable.
* I have lounged all summer without taking pristine care of the garden and it has still given me such joy.
