Our week...

First to update you....my night away was heavenly.  It truly was.  I enjoyed quiet time....in the middle of the day, not just in the wee morning hours.  It was remarkable.  All that God was able to speak to my heart when it was quiet.....

those are truly treasured moments.

That massive recipe notebook project...I would love to say it is completed.  It's not.  
First of all, it is an enormous project.  I didn't realize how enormous.  So I didn't finish it.  But I was able to organize it.  That, in itself, was an accomplishment.  Secondly, I really didn't push myself to finish.  I enjoyed just being and relaxing while there.  

I also got hooked on this mini series on the Hallmark channel, called Unspoken Love (I believe).  When else would I have the luxury of watching a mini series?  It is a beautiful story of this amazing family in the pioneer days.  What a treat to be able to indulge in!

Since returning on Sunday, we had a full week of preparing for a drive to Mississippi to see the boy's grandparents.  That's where we are now.  We spent a few days getting clothes washed and packed, packing food, and getting "car activities" for the boys figured out.  All of this was then put together in a small SUV with a 3 and 4-year-old, for an 11-hour drive.  I have to admit, I was dreading it.  And was a little unnerved with my sweet husband who was determined we could do it in one day.  

Well, it went beautifully!  Our little guys were champions and we actually enjoyed our close-proximity family time together.  Only God can do that.  

We will be back home next week...and so blogging will resume.  I can't wait to catch up on reading other blogs, too!  Until then....

Stopping by from SPFH! I think I have seen the mini series on the Hallmark channel. Does each episode have the word *love* in it? Have a safe trip back and I'm glad your kids were good for you guys :) I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old and we have yet to travel long distance with them.

Wow, what a lovely night away and what a sweet, sweet husband you have :) I'm impressed that you got your recipes organized. Something I need to do, too.
