It was a lovely day. We were met at church by several of our children this morning and I got a very, very nice greeting from my little granddaughter who ran and jumped into my arms. So nice! Simon was stand-offish, like usual, but we played a game of "I See You" around his mother. Lucas was his affectionate self and came over to give me a nice hug and lean his head against my side.

After church
we went out to breakfast and enjoyed a little more time with the family. I have to say, their table manners have relaxed a bit since they moved out of our house... However, everyone ate what was in front of them, no one was utterly obnoxious, and we had a wonderful time together.

After a quiet afternoon at home and a bit of a nap, James and I went out for a ride. We weren't entirely sure where to go, but ended up at Sodus Point. It was a beautiful evening. On the way home we stopped at our favorite ice cream shop and stood in line even though that is not James' very favorite thing to do. I think it was worth the wait.


  1. Ice cream is nearly always worth the wait :-)

  2. Sounds like a lovely Sunday. What flavor did you have?

    1. I got a twist, just like I usually do. They have other flavors, but my favorite is soft ice cream. (I wasn't quite ready for pumpkin yet... Maybe next time.)
