golden days

I'm coming down off a long and lovely weekend visit from very special, dear-to-me friends.  Having sent the boys off to the airport on Monday, I still have a slight case of the blues.  The Michigan weather stayed true to form while they were here, and went from stormy to overcast to sunny to drizzly in record time, but we still managed to get in plenty of three-on-three badminton and even some relaxing floating in the lake.  My cocktail-making skills were put to the test.  But best of all, were the long conversations, just sitting around and talking about everything under the sun--the thing I miss most of all about my old friends.

Anyway, my blues are slightly lifted by contemplation of a possible visit to see them this autumn.  And I'm always cheered by the touch of autumn in the air at this time of year.  The light seems particularly beautiful right now, don't you think?
