Weekend Adventures

          I love weekends and summer makes them about a million times better. They offer up so many opportunities for adventure. This one was especially nice. The sun was shinning, friends were present and laughter was at hand. The delightfulness started on Friday when I dragged my keyboard outside and played in the sunshine, had coffee with a good friend and got the first sunburn of the summer. Friday night turned into a party when we had a spur of the moment supper for eleven people in our tiny little apartment. Saturday was spent with a couple hours on the lake with the same group of amazing friends and a cook off where my sister-in-law and I battled it out in the kitchen. And to pass the time on this lovely afternoon we rode 15 miles around the lake, got rained on and stopped for ice cream.
        And so you see, adventures abound. Their is so much life to be lived, laughs to be laughed and moments to be shared. Thanks to the One who gave us this life, we can have a smile in our hearts and truly enjoy the adventures that await us. Have a great summer.
