I am standing by our campfire this evening listening to a frog croak nearby. Liz, Ron, Rachael and Ray are all getting ready for bed. The stars are all out and there is a sliver if a moon. It is quiet and peaceful here.
Ray and I are staying here for a few days. The kids are leaving sometime tomorrow. It is a treat not to have to rush back home.
Time slows down here. Probably the absence of electricity. We are not staring at television. Instead this afternoon we all play cards for several hours before doing what needed to be done to prepare dinner and build a fire. This evening we have just sat around the fire and talked.
Wishing everyone a good Memorial Day weekend.
May the souls of our soldiers who have given their lives for our country rest in peace.
