I know many of my readers have already turned off their computers and headed out of town for the weekend. I’ve made my preparations for the three major parts of my weekend.
Saturday morning breakfast family style. One of the things I love about my husband is his great skill at making pancakes. Tomorrow we will have the joy of seeing extra faces at the table. Our oldest daughter is in town and in transition from one part of her journey to the next. Fresh orange juice and Jimmy Dean sausage will go nicely with the stacks of fluffy hot pancakes.
After breakfast is cleared up it’s on to the cabin for the rest of the day and in to Sunday. Nothing like sitting by a fire with a glass of wine and my favorite person in the whole wide world. We’re going to do some work on the water lines tomorrow. The well is full but the holding tank is empty. Mystery cabin style.
Sunday afternoon will see us back home for the end of an era. For the past 31 years I have watched the Jerry Lewis MDA telethon and it’s been my tradition to address my Christmas cards during the late hours. This year the telethon only runs from 6pm until midnight. Every year at the end of the telethon Jerry sings “Walk On” for his kids. This will be the last year. Jerry is retiring. I have my Christmas cards all ready. This year I have decided to do something special in honor of the last Christmas Cards with Jerry. If you would like me to make a donation to MDA in your name post “Send my card to Jerry” before midnight Sunday night.
After all…if it’s not a labor of love it’s just another long weekend.
