We will be going home tomorrow.
I am always a wee bit sad to leave this place.
This is really my happy place where I can simply BE and not necessarily DO.
We totally enjoyed having Amber and Mike and the quads here!
Sunday we regrouped and rode our bikes around, watched some Downton Abbey and ate simple but filling meals,
We went down to see the little chicks that Sherry had sent back down here.
There's something so special about seeing new life!
Louis Dean tethered the goats up around the camper to mow the lawn around here!
Monday Louis Dean and I rested most all day.
We ate simple sandwiches and watched Downton Abbey and relaxed.
We woke up late and went to bed early.
I worked a little bit on my book by putting my notes into place from the San Antonio Siblings Trip.
Mostly we napped, read, and continued to rest.....and watched Downton Abbey.
Today I worked on my book.
It does take some time and energy - emotional energy - to sink back into the past and put it all into words. I made some good progress and am now into the 'meat' of our story which is a little draining.
From the beginning, I have asked God to guide me through this writing of our history and I do feel the guiding of the Holy Spirit as I pen the words.
This afternoon the horses came down to visit.
And I stopped to see the wildflowers.
Dean was working on the tractor and we are hoping they can get it running soon.
There's always something that needs fixing in the country.
That's Dean working.....
Meanwhile - Louis Dean was building a pretty good campfire to celebrate our last night here!
I am in the camper while LD mans the fire.
Potatoes are baking in the microwave and I have BBQ chicken wings in the small toaster oven in here in the camper. Plus I have a good salad and I made Strawberry/Banana Jello with fresh kiwi and sliced strawberries for dessert.
All that is left is to pour a glass of wine and put the food on the plates.
Dean is up here now and I love hearing him and his dad talking outside on the deck.
What a wonderful week we have had!
I am so grateful for Dean's hospitality and the blessing of being out here in the country!!
