So this evening, Scott and I are sitting out on the back porch–the “courtyard” as dubbed by my friend Ginger when we first bought this house–using our laptops. I’m happy Ginger used that word, as it showed me possibilities for this patio that I hadn’t thought of. And now it really is rather courtyardish. We’re out here because it is actually so pleasant and dry that it would practically be a sin to be indoors. D16 has been providing entertainment by pitching to his net and hitting off his tee.
Tomorrow my mother and my aunt are arriving in Nashville. My oldest son is also coming in and we’ll meet up with him dinner. Then we’ll be going in a confusing number of directions. My brother and his wife will be arriving the following morning. The long and short of it is that I’ll be busy with family over the weekend. It’s been years since I’ve seen my aunt–over a decade–and almost a decade since I’ve seen my brother’s wife. It should be a fun weekend of catching up with everyone. Wouldn’t it be great if the weather could stay like this?
