Cerwin and Josh went to Jeff and Chris’ to help finish the deck, which left the other five of us with an open day before us.
Jana made pancakes for us.
Plain or chocolate chip.
The boys were delighted.
After a bit of computer and TV time for the boys and Jana – and laundry time for me – we went to the pavilion to clean up.
Friends called yesterday and asked if they could use the pavilion for an impromptu family gathering tomorrow.
Jana was on spider web-clean-up duty.
She called us all over to see this decorative spider.
I learned from the internet that it is a Marbled Orb Weaver.
She also swept the bottom of the serving table – a long board that will be placed on saw horses.
The boys favorite thing to do was throw sticks and leaves into the fire.
I should have taken a picture after we were finished. Cerwin mowed the yard when he got home, and I finished the job by weed eating. It looks quite nice.
Tonight Jana stayed with the boys while Cerwin and I went to an “Old Gang” supper at a local restaurant.
There were 44 of us – friends from days when we were young people.
Most are now married more than 50 years. Others will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in the near future.
I am not aware of any divorces in this group. There were a few deaths, and there was one widower and his friend at the meal tonight.
When some of us went outside to visit – because the room was full and noisy, I noticed the beautiful sunset.
…and the seventh day of this week was a very good day for us.
