Yesterday after a lovely afternoon bike ride and a delicious gelato with the whole family (minus Celeste who is in school), we all settled on our deck to read. The sky was very blue. The sun was shining. The temperature was perfect. Even the cat sat with us as we all read our books or newspapers.
That kind of thing doesn't happen very often, but it was so nice to just be with the family without having to do anything.
Moments when everyone is completely content are rare, but that was one of those perfect days...and a very pleasant day it was!
