Ramblings VII: My Summer "Vacation"

Remember when on the first day of school your assignment was to write about your summer vacation? School has started and I was thinking about what I did with my time. As I looked over the summer, it made me think of a quilt...it is not much to look at square by square, but all of the pieces together create an interesting pattern. So here are the squares of my summer:

The Roney Reunion--in the south, what is summer without a family reunion ? We have been celebrating with my mother's family for over 30 years...the 4th Sunday in June at Lake Eufaula. The food is great, come on up, we won't know if you belong or not !!! The threat of rain had thinned the crowd considerably before I got pictures .

We have done lots and lots and lots of swimming....

I created a rock garden to cover an unsightly well. Still need to plant...another of my many works in progress ( I love that phrase, it is so much nicer than unfinished !!)

Tomato gravy and biscuits: a staple of the south.

I was involved in a wonderful Bible Study on the Song of Solomon. We had the privilege of having the author of the study join us for a week of intense reflection. This was a highlight of the summer !!

More swimming, with friends and family, young and old.
