Easy Like Sunday Morning
Lately, we are just in the groove with our weekends. Between lunchtime picnics, discovering our plastic table can double as a water table (hours of fun!) and good 'ol family time, it feels so smooth and easy. I love how this photo shows the trail of fun all the way out the door last weekend.
On a cultural note, while riding our bikes to the mall, I've noticed this house before with a row of water bottles all lined up and ready to go. But go where, I wondered? Came to find out they are put out for the monks. Every morning, very early, the monks are dropped off in various neighborhoods with their begging bowls, receiving food from the locals as is the custom in Buddhist countries. It is a beautiful sight to see if you happen upon it here: orange-robed monks silently walking single file down a road holding their bowls. These water bottles are for them to pick up on their way. Lovely, eh?
