Saturday afternoon was spent in an inviting backyard.
My eyes immediately fell to the ground.
Various critters were sprinkled throughout the yard.
It was a beautiful sunny afternoon. A perfect day for a book signing hosted by my friend Ellie for her cousin, Susan Eastman. Everyone seems color coordinated!
Susan Eastman (left) is author of The Hull with It, a memoir. Her friend Pam is seated next to her and handled the business part of the book signing. I felt much at ease when I met these two. It seemed as if I'd already known them. After reading Susan's memoir about growing up in a beach town, I could see similar threads from our childhood although mine was spent in the asphalt jungle!
Being in Ellie's backyard made me realize that I need to rescue my abandoned garden! But first, my allergies must abandon my body. Itchy eyes and a congested head have me staying indoors these days.
Thanks to Ellie and my kids for making this past weekend a happy one.
