Good things have happened this past week. First, Jazzfest's first weekend just passed (www.nojazzfest.com), and as always, I mourn the sad reality that I am not there to enjoy the amazing music, food and heat. But I actually felt like I was there for a little while on Friday morning at the park. Between the thoughts of Jazzfest, leading the New Orleans trip for Revolution and walking in a park for the first time SINCE living in New Orleans, I was almost there....walking at Lafrenierre park instead of Wilderness park. I had a little more pep in my step that day. :o)
Secondly, although there were some sad feelings mingling with the good, Lakewood and Downey were "Reunited" on Sunday morning. It was good to see the entire family. It made my heart happy that after everyone else had left (except the tear down crew), everyone from Downey (who'd gone to the 11am service) was still hanging out on the patio. We're all just used to being together until the very last cable is wrapped and tent is torn down.
And I would be totally remiss if I didn't mention fondue with the Twal's as a high point of the last week. Wild and crazy...that's what fondue with the Twal's is. I highly recommend it.
Well, I hope that is a sufficient update. I was attempting to embed some pictures and music in this blog, but am having some technical difficulties. Sorry I couldn't make it more interesting for you. :o(
