Another week has come and gone. It’s Sunday again. How different this day is from last. It’s gloomy, threatening to rain, an ever-so-slight chill in the air. It did rain last night and the remnants of drips are wending their way through the leaves on the trees, pit-patting as they go.
I’m up early this morning, having my coffee and cruller on the porch. LightHusband was here briefly, but he’s out in the boat fishing now. As I know from our years together, this is perfect fishing weather. All the children and grandparents are still sleeping.
The LightChildren +One Friend have had a ball this vacation. The two boys have spent hours fishing (but rarely catching). There have been a few catches which LightGirl protests. The fish get thrown back so they might live long and prosper, get married or something silly like that. She’s too old for such nonsense, but she has a tender heart so we indulge her. There have been tubing runs, snorkeling classes, blueberry pies (2), corn on the cob (countless), running and jumping off the float, swimming, kayaking, friends, cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents, sleeping in, running around, playing and goofing off. It’s been a good vacation.
We return home tomorrow and take up the reins of our regular lives. I think we’re ready now.
