Today is the season opener -- the first famjam of the season for my side of the family. Far away sis and her family arrived last night and my brother and his mini-me son are coming down from their place an hour away. Today will be one of those rare opportunities in which we will ALL be together. Twenty-one in all. That feat has become harder to coordinate now that the kids have sprouted into adults with lives of their own. So today is a special day. My camera batteries are charging, the potato and pasta salads are made, and I have little to do but practice my happy dance and pick out which clean tshirt to wear. I keep things pretty simple.
The weather network is calling for a sketchy day - lots of clouds and chance of sporadic showers. Boo! And of course Sunday and Monday are expected to be sunny and beautiful. Figures. But no rain or clouds will dampen the fun and spirits of my tribe. Wine of course helps.
I gotta a feeling -- that today is gonna be a good, good day.
