Labor Day Picnic

We had a wonderful day today, at a picnic at the home of some friends from church. They live out in Edgewood, up on the top of a hill, on a 5-1/2 acre piece of New Mexico land. Really beautiful. They have some nicely landscaped areas as well as some trails that wind through the natural terrain. Birds are everywhere!

The weather was perfect. Warm, but partly cloudy, so no one had to sit in the hot sun. The food was delicious. (You should have tasted that peach cobbler, made with fresh peaches out of the Honeycutt's orchard. It was still warm from the oven!)

It was just a delightful day, with good friends, good food and the wonders of nature all around us.

[Edit (09-05-07): We heard tonight that the official count of attenders was 72 -- a great turn-out!]

Glad someone had an enjoyable Labor Day. We officially had rain on all three summer holidays, Memorial Day, 4th of July and now Labor Day!

Oh well, didn't have much of anything going on today anyway, so I guess I can't complain. It did help me not feel quite as guilty for just lounging around all day.
