Oh What a Perfect Day...

I'm glad I spent it with my family (apologies to Lou Reed). That's what yesterday was. I got started early enough to buy a big pork shoulder roast, marinate it, then cook it for 4 hours to make real pulled pork barbecue sandwiches for dinner (Paula Deen recipe). I did the whole 9 yards, homemade coleslaw, baked beans, Cracker Barrel style green beans and peach cobbler for dessert. I think I blew out my culinary lobe on all that.

Vicky got home from her trip to Tampa just in time for dinner, and Geoff stayed in last night. We all watched "Dirty Dancing" together on TV (still love that movie), then most of "Titanic." Now, we have both of those movies on DVD, but somehow we didn't mind watching them with commercials on network TV. There's hardly anything better than nesting with your nearly grown children. It's so rare that we are all four home for dinner at the same time, and the cell phone isn't ringing to call one of the kids (or both) off somewhere.

Gawd, I hadn't watched "Titanic" in forever. I forgot how how much I enjoyed it. Even though I know how it ends, I still always kind of hope that Leo won't die and he and Rose will go off to California together in the end.

I need to make a couple of kinds of soap, but I feel unable to do anything energetic right now. Until we get my DH to the doctor for a second opinion tomorrow, I don't feel able to do anything that requires a high level of concentration.

Wow! I wish I could have gone to your house for dinner last night!
