A Bountiful Weekend

Today is Sunday and, so far, the weekend has been full of family, food and forgetfulness. I’ve decided that I will expect forgetfulness to creep into my life on a daily basis. No, on second thought, I will count on it. I escaped from work early on Friday so that I could get my shopping done ahead of the weekend since it was looking like it was going to be a busy one.
