A Non-Laboring Labor Day

With husband still in the hospital on Labor Day, I went with some of our neighborhood up a winding road into the mountains, to a resort that I am sure resembles heaven for a barbecue and a bit of jazz.

Where peace reigns

On a perfect day

For good old-fashioned hot dogs, hamburgers and macaroni salad

Where some chose unusual beverages

Where the Golden Mantle Chipmunks trust people

And the trees spread their many arms to the sky

Where music filled the air

The Haute Schatz Dixieland Jazz Band tickled their instruments

With good company in the appreciative audience

A wonderful day with more than enough.

These days with husband home are full of adjustments. The road to enough is bumpy, but we will get there.

    The lake and the sky look so blue. One might wonder how anything could be wrong in the Universe… Blessings as the husband settles back into being home with Hospice.


I'd love to hear from you!
