We just got back in town after 4 days of total relaxation. We visited with family we get to see too rarely. We took long walks in the cane fields and to visit the horses. We picked oranges and grapefruit...what happened to the satsuma crop this year? We ate delicious home-cooked meals and shared them with loved ones. We read books and magazines.

It was absolutely perfect and, thus, all that much harder to get back to reality. But, we have plenty of reminders of a lovely weekend and why we need to be thankful.
