Marie and I had good day today. We got up early and had coffee and talked on the back deck. We prayed together, then we took a bike ride – first one all summer.
Marie made some awesome smoothies, then we did a little yard work and took a nap.
We’ve been getting our produce from a co-op called bountiful basket (I’m sure some have heard of it in your area). We picked that up and came home and took care of $40 worth of produce (bagged, sliced, frozen, puréed to salsa, and of course some eaten). This is kind of a fun activity for us – you don’t know what your going to get, so it’s a discovery time just identifying some of the produce items sometimes.
Then Marie and I picked up some Coronas and a couple of sandwhiches at McAllister’s Deli and drove to a nearby lake to watch the sunset. We kisses a little and did an excercise from a marriage book we’ve been reading together, then headed home before we got struck by lighting from the storm rolling in.
One of the nicest days we’ve had in a while. Today we feel hopeful.
