"A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and thou"

Well, no bread and the jug of wine was actually a very nice bottle of pinot gris but 'thou' was there x 2. Yesterday we headed up to Snookers for our Friday afternoon happy hour. It gets us out of the house and we meet new people plus the added bonus of chatting with our favorite barkeep there, Suzie!

We came home and thought about how long it had been since we just put on some cds and relaxed on the lanai. It is usually just too hot and muggy to do this in the summer here but we've had lots of cooling weather thanks to Tropical Storm Fay (who hasn't been as kind to all parts of our state...hope everyone is recovering fast).

So, we loaded the cd player with lots of wonderful music, grabbed a nice bottle of wine and headed to the back. We talked; E looked through cooking magazines and I read the recent Coastal Living and Southern Living mags...picking out some fall plants along the way for E to put on our garden list.

Andre Bocelli, Chris Botti, and Sarah Brighton filled our souls, the wine did the same for our senses and we chilled out! Love evenings like these.

Glad you guys had time to sit and enjoy the sweet life in Florida! Those minutes are too few but really appreciated in life!
