Saturday morning I told Fodder that I felt like the summer was passing us by and that I needed to do something summerish. I then informed him that he was taking me to the lake. So, yesterday morning we piled into the little red car and headed south in I-30. You may not know this, but Arkansas isn’t known as The Natural State because we all run around naked all time.
That’s only part of it.
I have to tell you, this state is beautiful. We have some of the most beautiful, unspoiled land in the country. We also have some awesome state parks. So, without further ado:
How I spent my Sunday
By Margaret Ethridge
We headed down to Lake Catherine State Park just outside of Hot Springs. There, we sunned, swam, ate peanut butter sandwiches with potato chips, and raided the gift shop for trinkets. I don’t allow cameras near bathing suits, but here’s a pic of where we were:
After we baked for a couple of hours, we hit the Sonic Drive-In for ice cream cones and headed home. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the world’s cutest grandbaby. After a round of oohing and cooing, the young master and I settled in for a Sunday afternoon nap.
We must have looked cute because the man offered to grill chipotle-marinated chicken for dinner. We chopped that yumminess to bits, added cheese, warmed some chips and called our masterpiece “nachos.” Clever, huh? I even sweetened the pot by throwing together some banana pudding for dessert.
So that was my day yesterday. How about you? How did you spend your Sunday?
