Swimming and picnic today. The world’s best hamburgers, watermelon, cookies… a family of friends and a sister, niece, nephew and husband. The pool was cold after the recent rain. The air only warmed to eighty-four degrees – when the sun was out. The mermaid on her kickboard. some beach ball volleyball. missing torpedo shark. West Bloomfield juried art fair on Orchard Lake in Beaumont’s parking lot. The search for a fused glass face pendant. No kettle corn this time. Chicken on the grill for dinner. Mexican train domino domination – two nights in a row. Ah, summer! Lazy vacation time has begun.
