Tuesday Sharing-Slices of Beginnings

   Time for our Tuesday Slice of Life Sharing at the Two Writing Teachers blog. It's a wonderful place to share what's going on in your life, whatever you may be doing.

  Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.

           I love taking pictures, and do try to capture different moments in my life, but sometimes it's nice just to "be" and that's what I'm sharing today, plus only one photo. My son, daughter-in-law and grandson arrived late Friday night. It was wonderful to have them around for a couple of days; the cliché "short, but sweet' fits perfectly. 


Saturday and Sunday: We visited, went to their favorite ski shop to find a new pair of skis and boots for Carter (growing, growing)! We went to REI, one of their special places they like to shop because they don't have that store where they live now. We went out to dinner at a favorite, kid-friendly place nearby and my daughter and her family joined us. They live nearby. We traveled over to my daughter's home to see their new renovations. We made a quick trip to Trader Joe's so they could see what it was like. They went to lunch with old and dear friends. There is more, but I'm hoping you understand that we were together again, feeling lucky to have spent all that time also at the beach in late July. This time, with Labor Day sending us all back to our regular lives, for two days, it was a great time.

      Have a great week everyone!

  19. Yea for family time! And Denver has Trader Joe's??? You're making me want to move :) Our closest TJ's is about 30 min away. Not too bad, we try to make it out there every 2-3 weeks and stock up. Hope it's a great short week!
