Everyone is living their own lives in different parts of the state and, yes, even the country. Jobs and children's activities make traveling difficult.
And let's be honest, now that our parents are deceased, we aren't making any big efforts. People make an effort to visit parents, especially elderly or sickly ones, so it was much easier to run into each other.
This weekend, however, we made a big effort. I say big because camping in this Louisiana heat is something of a chore. Thankfully, one family had a boat, so the children could go boating, tubing, and swimming. There are always fans and air conditioners to retreat to when the sweltering heat is just too much. Let's not forget the iced tea!
We share campers and take turns cooking, so that means everyone gets a share of the mess and the extra heat that cooking brings. We ate well: roast pork, fried chicken, boudin, dressing, salads, breads, cookies, pies, even spaghetti. (Richard and I made spaghetti for about 40 people--the problem: only 18 were there for lunch!)
Though I did not go swimming or boating, I swept away great piles of sand. So I thought I'd let that sand be inspiration for today's post.
