Family Time



This is the happiest week of the summer, for me. Three of my sisters are here on the island, for a week-long visit. Dinners are well-planned, masterfully prepared, and served family-style, with lots of laughter and good conversation.

Other activities include beach days, shopping and exploring. Last night, several of us went to Donegal Bay to watch the sunset. Later, we circled around the kitchen counter for a long game of Yahtzee. This morning, another group came out to my house, to walk next door to see the goats that live there.

I’ve been fitting in my own necessities – picking beans, doing laundry, mowing lawn – while trying to take advantage of as much family time as possible. I know well how rare – and how precious – these opportunities are.
