Weekend Update

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Here at Casa Leone our days have been filled with love and laughter. In case you've forgotten, my dad is visiting from Florida. We love having him here and honestly I'd keep him if I could. Just send the plane off without him. Alas, that's not possible so we enjoy him to the fullest while we've got him here on the farm.

So what have we been up to, you ask? Nothing spectacular. Everything spectacular. Can you understand what I'm trying to say? Even the littlest things can become extraordinary when they're done with your favorite folks.

We've picked veggies. And berries. Made pineapple sorbet. (Heavenly, by the way! And oh-so simple to make!) Watched the Olympic closing ceremonies. Yesterday my mom and step-dad came over and spent the day with us. We had a huge Sunday dinner, talked and laughed. Laughed some more.

And we played pinochle. We play so much pinochle in our house that cards get worn out and replaced with great frequency. Yesterday we opened a new deck; it's already showing signs of wear! If you'd like to know more about pinochle, I found this site. It explains the game pretty thoroughly.

So there you have it, a weekend in our home. Like I said, nothing newsworthy but all good.

I hope your weekend made your heart smile. And I hope you've got a great week coming up.
