Sunday in a Small Town

Sunday morning in THE valley. Ohhh what a treat.

I'm still not 100% and just couldn't find the energy to cook so I headed to the diner in town.

As I sat there, watching people come and go, enjoying their meals and the company they shared, it was like stepping back in time. The music today was "classic country" and the diner....well, it's kind of a blast from the past. Nothing fancy, just comfortable.

I've gotten to know the waitresses here over the past year and some. It's nice to be recognized when I walk in. They know what table I'll want, they know I don't need a menu. It's either french toast or my eggs/crunchy taters and burnt english muffin. I don't vary much - I like what I like.

I don't know if it's because I've been gone so much lately or if it's just where I'm still sorta weak from being sick, but today everything just seemed so, so, so sweet.

I watched a couple of older ladies, all dressed up from church, come in for lunch. A family full of children and laughter wandered in for a late breakfast. As the time got closer to noon, more and more folks wandered in. Each smiling, no one in a hurry.

I know I've said it time and time again, but I do love this little town I've landed in. There isn't much here, and that's part of it's charm. No one bothers you, but ohhhh you can bet they have a view on who you are and what you do. I've heard some theories out there about me and I have to chuckle. If only my life were that exotic. :-)

Ahhh Sunday in THE valley. It just don't get much better than this.

Oh you are so not going to leave us hanging like that.

"If only my life were that exotic."

See, now you gotta share what they're saying. It makes for great blog fodder, otherwise I'll have to start spreading some rumors myself!
