A beautiful day
Today was a beautiful day. I spent the day with my family. We celebrated the birthdays of my wonderful daughter Kelly, my awesome nephew Jackson and the most magnificent grand-niece Sophie Mae. We did all the normal family stuff, ate too much really good food. Sat around and talked about everyone’s aches and pains, joys and woes, good memories and possibilities for the future.
My sister was nearly wiped out in an amazing kamikaze attack from a squirrel running from the dog. Far and away one of the strangest and funniest dang things I have ever seen. The squirrel comes down the light pole and rather than running away from dog and people it makes a run for my sister’s lawn chair. That was the first time I ever heard the actual pounding of a squirrels feet. It veered off at the last second to the astonished relief of us all.
And one other highlight was sword play, yep sword play. My daughter Jessica, my nephew and I spent time smacking each other around outside with my foam covered swords. Then the newest warrior princess wanna be the magnificent Sophie decided she should have a sword and join the melee. So I did what any other cautious self-respecting Great Uncle would do. I gave her mine and pointed her in the direction of her mother. She had a ball. Not many things better than introducing a young lady to the joys of smacking people with a big stick.
Such a beautiful day
