A Good Day

Today turned out to be quite a good day. We had a bar-b-que to celebrate my 28th birthday. The weather turned out much better today than if we had done it last weekend. I was pleasantly surprised. I cooked up 14 steaks and two bratwurst on the grill and everything was tasty! My daughter made a mean fruit salad and my wife put together a scrumptious pasta salad with baby spinach. There were a total of five cakes as well. What a feast!
Of course, before all that could happen we had to do a lot of work around the house. We spent a few hours outside cleaning up the yard and then I tilled up the garden a bit. Now I'm starting to feel as if I may have gotten just a bit too much sun, my mind is quite foggy and I have the beginnings of what seems to be a nasty headache coming on. Was it worth it? I think so. I don't generally have a lot of good family experiences and today turned out to be an unexpected treat. Ah, and so the stars align.

On Saturday we had the kid's carnival. My wife had a migraine from over-working herself, shame shame, so we had to cut it a little short, but the kids and I had fun while we were there and I did get a chance to get some pics for later use as writing prompts. Yay!

I think I may have to cut this post short today, maybe tomorrow I'll be feeling better. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! For those of you waiting for the next installment of the Lyric Writing series, stay tuned, it's coming soon.
