First Cookout of 2010

Today has been a near perfect day. Everyone is home and happy. The monkeys brought home good grades. The weather is beautiful.

Manly fired up the grill while I worked in the garden. He grilled steak, shrimp, asparagus, oranges and apples. I harvested some lettuce, carrots and radishes for a salad. We had ourselves a feast.

I am going back outside to finish planting the tomatoes and enjoy the garden until the sun goes down.

This is exactly the life I want for myself and my family.

Happy spring y'all.


  1. We grilled out tonight too Debbi. We sat and drank wine while we grilled. Youngest son and granddog came over..we ate was a perfect night! Life is good!

  2. Hey ! You guys are having too much fun .. I am coming over ! haha
    We "grilled" a while back when we had that unnatural warm front .. it was a taste of wonderful weather .. now we are back to cold and windy .. aarrgghhh !
    Have a great time there girls ? ;-)

  3. Sounds like a great day. And don't you just love going back out until the sun goes down to do a few last gardening things? Perfect way to end the day. Hope your week is as good!
