Home again. It was a lovely weekend and I can't wait to see what's on the camera because I have no idea how any of my pictures came out, especially the ones taken in the old, old graveyard at sunset last night.
When we got home, Mr. Moon was desperate to give me my card and I hadn't even written his out yet so I went out back and wrote a silly poem on it and gave it to him. Then he gave me his and I cried because it was so damn sweet and what every married-for-twenty-five-years lady would like to hear and THEN he gave me that necklace you see. It can also be worn as a pin and we saw it in Cozumel last summer and I really wanted it but didn't demand it and I've thought about it ever since and then- there it was today. Even wearing my overalls, I feel like some sort of noble lady, wearing it around my neck.
And that's all I have to say right now because I have laundry to do and greens to pick for salad and supper to make and dishes to wash. I've already given my chickens some grapes and made brownies for Jessie because she asked me to and I've unpacked my suitcase and have bread rising and have talked to all of my children but Hank and I'm going to call him now.
Golly. It was a lovely weekend. It's a lovely life. And I have missed everyone and I think I dreamed of you all and I hope all is well with you.
