Hello there! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I hope restful and fun. Our weekend was a combination of those with a side of super good food thrown in for good measure. Friday evening, we literally had no plans. Flynn and I had a busy week, so Friday, we spent the afternoon with Rick, Michonne, Daryl, and the rest of The Walking Dead. I had no dinner plans, so lucky for me, Madison and Nicolas invited us over for dinner on the deck again! Madison prepared the MOST AMAZING pasta with tomatoes and basil. Nicolas grilled zucchini and grated fresh parmesan too. We ate outside on their deck and then went inside when it got chilly ( I see you there autumn! ) and played our new favorite game. Have you heard of KNOW IT OR BLOW IT ? It is a trivia game for teams. So fun. Steve and I won, in case you were wondering. Even though Steve said the wrong name of the son in The Jetsons. Leroy????!!! We enjoyed Madison's Peach Upside-Down Cake too!

Monday Morning Coffee Talk
On Saturday, we had an awesome family friend over for boating, tubing, dinner, and a fire. Alan went to school with Madison, and we have known him forever. He is a super young man we don't see enough, so I am thankful he took the time out of his busy schedule to visit. Everyone was able to make it except for Kyrstin, who was working. We enjoyed burgers, pasta salad, chips, and fresh fruit, plus some delicious corn that Alan picked himself from their own field. I had a packet of something that you throw into the fire and it made beautiful colors, so we enjoyed that too.
And finally, today is a special day in the Catholic faith, and my very favorite feast day in the church year. It is the Feast of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven. Years ago, a priest told us that on this feast day, we can present very special intentions to Mary and ask her to intercede for us. I have every year and have received many blessings in return. Here is a favorite prayer I pray on this special day.
Well, I am off. It is time for me to become friends with some seventh grade teacher's manuals. Seventh grade! Not sure about dinner tonight, but I am sure it is Bachelorette Monday! Have a good one, my friends!
