Thank you for your very kind thoughts about the passing of our dear Moxie. He is ever present in our lives. Every time I went to leave the house I thought about walking him and every time I came home I looked for him at the door. Even though he wasn't there, we tripped over him in the kitchen and, every time we went up or down the stairs, we stooped to carry him with us. He is with us in our hearts throughout every day and he will be forever, but it will take awhile before I stop seeing him in the corner of the eye.
Tuesday Smith's nephew was in town for the day. We had a great visit and it was wonderful to see him, as it had been a number of years. Wouldn't you know the day he comes to town it was one of the coldest June days we'd had in 20 years? It was still cloudy when we went into the restaurant for dinner, but when we left the sky looked amazing. The mountains were snow capped, the clouds swept by cold winds through the blue.
By Thursday the sky was clear and the air was considerable warmer. The days have been slowly warming up since.
I spent most of the weekend alone (Smith is working almost every weekend), but Saturday I had a chance to take a friend to lunch for her birthday.
Lucky for me she loves sushi and, lucky for us, the sushi chef likes us. He made up a special sunomono (a non-traditional cucumber salad) in celebration. It tasted even better than it looked.
The weekend was peaceful, quiet, and I accomplished a few tasks I'd been putting off. Not every weekend can be this way and I was glad for the slower pace, as my week is going to be busy and full.
Did you have time to relax and enjoy some quiet time this weekend?
