Wow it is Monday yet again. The week ends just seem to fly by, especially in the Summer. We started the week end at a favorite Winery here in Redding, my and my wonderful wife, just the two of us. We ordered a 1/2 pitcher of Mango Sangria, OMG was that ever good!!! We also had a wonderful Strawberry and mozzarella Caprese, with just the right amount of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.... so refreshing. Then the week end just sort of spun out of control, now I know what you are thinking but not with just a 1/2 pitcher of Sangria between us!!!
We did chores on Saturday and then just enjoyed the day, but then on Sunday, our great friends invited us to go up to a wonderful Alpine Mountain Lake, Lake Siskyou, yes I wrote about it a few weeks ago.
We packed up a picnic lunch, and met them, their oldest daughter and her family, we love them so much, and our oldest son and his wife joined us also, and we love them even MORE =).
We had a wonderful time just sitting on the beach drinking Raspberry Sangria's , my personal recipe that turned out fabulous!! And watching Angie and Kirk's two children play in the water and sand.
All of us adults just sat and visited, and enjoyed the day, and I might add that the temperature in Redding on Sunday was 106, yes you read that right 106, and at that lovely lake up in Mount Shasta only about 78, with a lovely breeze blowing through to cool you just when you about thought you might get all flush and stuff. It was wonderful.
Nothing better than spending the day with great friends, your kids and a cool mountain lake to cool you off.
So I hope you had a great week end filled with those you love, and that you took the time to enjoy your self, I know I did.
Blessings to you and yours..... Curtis and Sherrie
