But even though I DO THIS DINNER every year -- apparently, I don't always take a picture...
|This is my favorite. From 2013.|
If you're a Cubs fan....or rooting for the Seahawks...well, you get my drift.
|Every August file has a picture of me and my college chum, Becky -- getting together somewhere midway...always in Illinois...always a different little town...always the best time EVER!! We've been doing this for years.|
|The last three August folders have fuzzy pictures of the VBS Lilly attends at the McCausland Methodist Church. My sister Deena is always involved, there are lots of cousins there...Lilly loves it. Next year, Warren will go...right??|
|Every August folder has a variation of THIS. YES...the tomatoes are ripe and we eat BLT's every-other-day for two weeks. Until we are SICK OF THEM...soooo delicious...|
|Every August brings a crop of delicious, fresh CORN ON THE COB. We pick it and shuck it and immediately cook it...and there simply isn't anything sweeter in the world that a simple ear of sweetcorn, lathered with melting butter!!|
But looking at my "August" picture file folders gave me a real perspective on how much I enjoy the rhythm of repeating events in my life. It is comforting to know the same things will happen this year that happened last year....
And that each month has it's own joys and pleasures to look forward to...
|HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CAL.|
