Mary and I visited Dad and then bought vegetables and gluten free pasta at Magnolia's farmer's market before returning to Kate's for a sunny afternoon with little or nothing to do. The whole day spread out before us, which meant we've mostly shared a leisurely visit.
Denny's in the kitchen making his own sausage and a big beef roast has been slow cooking all day. Dinner and then early bed? Funny how slowing down allows tiredness to overtake one. All in all, this is a very different sort of Labor Day weekend.
I've been in Seattle since Monday and much of the week has followed the usual template of daily visits with family. Jeanne and the kids has been on Whidby Island all week, but Caroline, Steve, Lulu and Charlie were in town.
Thursday evening, Charlie had soccer practice and I watched him maneuver that ball. I've taken Dad to see friends at Merrill Gardens and on a drive through Magnolia and Freemont and Green Lake. Everyday the sun shines and the sky is blue. The moon was full last night. And to me, it's a bit chilly. Where is my fleece?
