Good Ole Dinner Time

Each day we try to share with each other what our favorite thing of the day is. Some days we have to work really hard to come up with something good and other days it is hard to narrow down our favorite thing because the day was just that good. Many times however our favorite thing of the day ends up being dinner time.  We used to write down everybody's favorite thing of the day in a book.  Each night we would go around and ask each other what was the best thing of the day and then keep a journal.  After we wrote in our journal for about a year, we noticed a trend in good ole dinner time being consistently chosen as the best thing of the day. Sometimes dinner is chosen because the meal is that outstanding. Other times dinner is chosen because the company couldn't be better. The biggest reason we choose dinner - is well - because it is just fun.  We never have a dinner without laughter. We never have a dinner without sharing something interesting.  We have never have dinners with TV, radio, texting, emails or distractions.  We have dinner with family, with fun, with smiles, with sharing, with good food, with good stories and good memories. You know - dinner time the way it is supposed to be done.  One of my very favorite "jobs" is cooking dinner.  I really love cooking.  I love making something delicious and I love making other people happy with my food. I also love that my cooking is most appreciated.  Dinner time is a priority here and we all like it that way.  In the summer months, dinner time often is served super late at night.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres does not even think about eating dinner while the sun is still shining. He uses every drop of sunshine every day. Now that Autumn is upon us, dinner time will start much earlier as the lovely Sunshine goes to bed at a decent time. I think that secretly - shorter days might be my very favorite part of fall/winter.  It is nice to have dinner at a normal dinner hour. It just makes everyone's favorite part of the day happen that much sooner and once your favorite part of the day is here - you might as well keep it going for the rest of the night.
