gathered

our bit of earth has hosted
 extended family this weekend.

the hours have been filled with
corn hole, visiting, eating, laughing,
reminiscing, resting.

as the different generations sat together,
the blue chairs added to the sentimental mood.

are you finding time to catch your breath
sometime during this long weekend?

  1. I'm admiring your table covering. Might it be a bit of screenprinted fabric from Ink and Spindle?
    Blessings on your holiday family getaway. Jerome will join me here later this afternoon for a few precious days together, planting, mowing, sharing the day to day.

    1. Sharon...sharp eye there, but the fabric is actually batik from Nigeria. Batman grew up overseas, and bought these while he was in college and his folks were living in Lagos, Nigeria!

  3. It's always so nice eating together with the family.
    Now that I'm here in Uk, I miss "our Saturday's lunches" together.
    Greetings!
