Fall Party

Well it is that wonderful time of year.  When the air gets crisp and cool and everyone loves sitting outside, and you feel like you have a little slice of heaven around you but it wasn't meant to be a cool fall day but a hot as all get out day this weekend.  Hot and dry with dust kicking up with every step, but it ended up being a beautiful day as the bright orange sun set, and a little breeze picked up and cooled everyone off.  See, my brother has been putting on this end of the summer party every year for 17 years. The year it started it was for my sister's Tina,  wedding party.  Mom loved having people over and showing off her gardens and flowers.  There is usually a bunch of kids running around and we give hayrides and have live music, and oh yeah a ton of food.  My heart wasn't in it this year at first and I really didn't want to do it but my brother Art said we needed to do it.  He was right, it was good being with friends and I could feel mom was there.  Her roses looked great and she would have loved giving tours of her flowers.  All in all, I think everyone had a good time even though we all felt there was a little empty place.  Here's to a cool breeze in your face and the sweet smell of  sundried laundry.  Hope you have a great day, Ciao, Maria
