My husband hosted the regular monthly Scout committee meeting, gathering the group on the back deck and offering a variety of refreshments that I had set out for them to enjoy during the evening.
As they worked their way through the agenda, appetizers and desserts, I curled up on the couch on the quiet little porch off our bedroom with my book, savoring the peace and settling into the view.
