Yes, there is house work to do. Yes, there is laundry to do. Yes, I have a sewing project, or 2 or 3, to do. But after the rain yesterday, today has been crystal clear, and the temerature is a divine 78 degrees with a light breeze. So after breakfast, I looked at my son and said "How would you like to go on a hike?" He immediately set off packing his back pack with snacks and supplies. We met up with Dad and headed for a small state park where we throughly enjoyed ourselves and each other for the rest of the afternoon. What a beautiful way to spend the day!
