What I Did on my Summer Vacation

Counting my summer blessings. One by one.
Sleeping in. Every day.
Sunflowers in my garden, in the fields, and in the bouquet on my table.
A road trip, with family that included Maryland blue crabs, lots of sailing, and chances for memory making.
Reading. For pleasure.
Writing, for practice (and pleasure) and becoming part of the supportive community that is blogland. Love this new-to-me place, which has brought
new friends. Though “only” in cyberspace, friends nonetheless. Real people whose lives are now intwined with mine.
All this, AND a lovely cruise to a spectacular place.
I am truly blessed.

It's Saturday Centus again, only this week the challenge was EXACTLY 100 words, and the title was given, not a prompt.  Come join us at Jenny's place and link up.
