Last night's company was fun but lowkey. Three people couldn't come at the last minute, so we ended up having five. Usually this crowd is vibrant and full of energy, but last night they were very mellow...but still fun. I guess they couldn't have been too tired...they stayed until 2 am. That's not a record for us, but it is for them.

Our menu was pulled pork sandwiches, cole slaw, fruit salad, veggies and dip, and my homemade salsa with chips. For dessert, Ruthie and Anna made no-bake cookies (our guests call them "plops"), and Anna made some fake cheesecakes...that disappeared quickly.

Wow, are we in for it tomorrow! Today is breezy and beautiful, about 85 degrees. Tomorrow we could easily hit 100 degrees. Yikes!
My Mom is entering her piano students in a Baroque recital where they will play on a harpsichord. Isn't it beautiful?
This is another view. I think Lizzie is one of the students. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
I found this book at the thrift shop recently, and it's another winner! It's called, "Lost in America ~ How you and your church can impact the world next door." I have learned a lot about "intentional" relationships...meaning, those relationships that you nurture with the intention of being able to lead these folks to Christ. What an inspirational (and convicting) book this is.

We are busy cleaning, mowing, mending and choring today. Mom and Dad are an hour from Corpus Christi. It took them 30 hours straight. Dad said they have run into every construction slowdown (5 lanes into 1 outside of Atlanta!), and lots of accidents...and it is very hot outside. But I still wish I were there!

Enjoy your Sunday. Many blessings ~ Kathie

Looks like it was a great time of fellowship. That harpsichord is absolutely beautiful. What fun it would be to play on it!
