It was a beautiful day today...it started with rain to water the new bushes and flowers planted yesterday, then some fellowship and worship before enjoying an afternoon with my husband, daughter and my parents. With the exception of an hour when my hubby and daughter met friends at the park, the entire day was spent together. I'd like to tell you I did something super creative while they were gone but unless you consider doing the summer budget creative thinking (hmm...good possibility), I worked through the "To-Do List". We had a productive weekend at the "Buske Manor" - outside and in.
Tomorrow starts finals for my daughter, play days at the elementary schools and visions of summer and sand in the children's heads. The true challenge of teaching at its prime the next two weeks - their brains start summer vacation in spite of the desk and classroom encompassing them. LOL These are fun weeks ~ incorporating the learning and teaching I enjoyed the most as a child. A banana creme pie celebration with the wonderful 4th graders I work with in the morning too...they worked so hard!
I pray you enjoyed your Sunday and took time to relax. I found it refreshing to sit and go through the day without a strict agenda guiding me. I'm a list person and so I worked through my list yet it was a short and easy one. We laughed a lot, worked, played and now we're going to rest. Looking forward to the week ahead...
This beautiful red barn takes my breath away each time I walk, ride or drive past it. I'm not sure if it is the nostalgia of it or the bright red color. The property hosting this site used to be the home of one of New Haven, New Yorks best bakers ~ Mrs. Hyde. Oh my gosh... the aroma of baked breads, cookies and pastries add inches to my hips just thinking about them. She was one of the sweetest ladies and loved her hometown, her family, neighbors and us kids. One barn...many memories!
