I take my day of rest quite seriously. I love Sundays. I actually have even really enjoyed having late church. I sleep until I wake up. I go for a 40-60 minute walk. I take my time getting ready for church. And I love having dinner plans. I really do love to cook and entertain. It is just a matter of finding the time to do it, oh and actually planning. Today I made some scrumptious food (stealing Aunt Nancy's adjectives) and loved every minute preparing it.

Salmon must be washed and preferably not eaten raw!

I like salmon but have never found a great way to cook it. My sister in law Amanda had the answer: butter, Montreal steak seasoning, and lemons. Delicious.

Homemade lemonade (I might become an addict) and fruit salad.

I love this time of year when all the fruit starts to be in season. Katie made some yummy honey wheat rolls, Amanda grilled vegtables and we had baked potatoes. I mean can you really have too much good food.

No meal with guests is complete at my house without homemade ice cream. We tried orange sherbert tonight and I was pleasantly surprised.

After dinner we took turns riding my scooter.

So fun and it is just so cute. I must admit I am not looking forward to having to actually wear the helmet once I take it out on the road. Not so fun but I realize it is necessary.

And then we played ticket to ride (Loralie won) and watched The Secret Life of Bees (I forgot how sad that is)

Sundays are just so nice. Heavenly Father knew what he was doing when he commanded us to keep the Sabbath day Holy and to rest from our labors.
