Homecoming Saturday Pleasures

• Daisy's pockets filled with candy tossed at the homecoming parade.

• Strawberries at breakfast.

• Downtown on a beautiful blue morning. Girls at their first Girl Scouts meeting.

• Friends I haven't seen in many, many years.

• A long bright walk this afternoon and those purple grasses ripening acridly in pastures.

• Eleven children at the dinner table tonight (a mixed blessing perhaps?) as their parents attended other homecoming events.

• Loaves of date-walnut bread cooling on the counter.

I love your DD's shirt! The pink with the herringbone horse is sweeter than sweet.

My children have been out of school for years, and this was a wonderful reminder of the fall activities for the youngsters in the community! Wonderful~ beautiful blog...

Eleven children? This is exactly why my husband and I and our seven kids rarely get invited to dinner anywhere! We're a little too much of a blessing! What fun for homecoming!

Cheryl--That's lantana, a tender perennial. The orange tends to survive the winters, the other colors not. It is gorgeous!

Jackie, I know what you mean!
