Friday my mom helped me work on our house. She is such a hard worker. When I told her I was done for the day and she could go home, she replied that she had a few more things she wanted to get done before she left. I know if my mom was working on the house every weekend it would have been finished months ago. After a day full of work, Britton and I met my friend Laura in Taylor for a George McConnel and The Nonchalants concert in the lawn of the Plein Air Neighborhood.
We had a very eventful weekend and still managed some time to work on the house. I say the weekend started with Britton's last softball game of the season even though it was just Thursday night. In the bottom of the final inning Britton got up to bat. His team was down by two with the bases loaded and two outs. Britton had a full count, and hit hit it out to right field where the right fielder missed it and it skipped back to the fence. In the park GRAND SLAM and his team won the game! I was so proud!
After a drive out to the farm, we came back home just in time for my brother Brent and his girlfriend to arrive for a visit. We made our way to the square where we enjoyed the AC at Square Books and at some frozen yogert at Ya Ya's (my second visit to Ya Ya's in two days).
And we finally ended the night with a picnic in the Grove at Ole Miss listening to the Germantown Symphony. It was a wonderful summer night; the threat of rain past not without leaving a beautiful rainbow. By the last song, most commonly known to my generation at the "Beef...It's what's for dinner" tune, the crickets seemed to be competing with the musicians for our applause.
