Day 115 – Roses are Red


2013.06.16Today was a great day.  We started with a family breakfast; waffles, bacon, eggs and fruit.  My wife and kids whipped up a wonderful table full of food and we sat together, laughing and talking.

After the breakfast dishes were cleared and the mess was cleaned, Anita and I went for a good, long walk.  It was my fourth exercise of the week (or in her mind, the first exercise of the new week).

The afternoon was spent with my parents and a few of my siblings as we celebrated Father’s Day with dad.  It was a fun day and we made it home in time to fire up the grill and try it out with a whole chicken.  I was thrilled to know that I could monitor the temperature of the grill and the bird, adjusting for cooking time and temp.  While it cooked, I continued reading my book and sipping on some red wine.  By the time the sun was setting in the west, we were ready to taste some cheese and a perfectly cooked chicken.  I think Anita enjoyed the bird as much as I did.

It was one of the most restful days I’ve had in a long time and I can’t think of a better way to spend a Father’s Day.
