Summer Salad, Already?!, Welcome Home

 1. The vibrant color of this salad makes me happy. It's crunchy, delicious, and refreshing. Perfect for a hot summer's day.

Simply toss 1 can black-eyed peas, 2 ears of fresh corn, cut from the cob, 2 diced tomatoes, 1 diced avocado, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, 1/4 cup diced red onion. Then whisk together 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour dressing over vegetables and mix.
2. The high school held one of two schedule pick-ups today. By the mob in attendance right when the doors opened, I'd say these kids are all eager to go back to school. I know mine is.
3. Steve returned home from traveling. An associate invited him to stay at his home his first night away, which made this trip a little nicer than staying in a lonely hotel. Kindness and hospitality can never be overrated.
