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....
