We returned early to work on CJ's Social Studies project (a model of a Powhatan village) and so that I could put a serious dent in my upcoming speech. I was met by a tidy house, and even got most of the unpacking done. Life was good.
Then came the stomach virus. For both me & CJ. Praise God, R was home Monday to take care of us (there are some positives to swing shift). CJ returned to school yesterday (she's such a trooper), and I made it back to work today. We are sluggish, but better.
The sheets have been sanitized, the windows opened, and the surfaces wiped down. It's time to get back to it. Project, speech, and Sunday School lesson all await. Not to mention income tax preparation.
I'll be absent from the blogosphere for the rest of the week. I can't wait to come back and share "In Pursuit of Peace & Simplicity"...the spoken version. I'm so excited! The Lord has given me an acronym for the state of my life before this pursuit began:
Hallelujah, it no longer does!
I'll be back soon. In the meanwhile, enjoy the view (especially you, Barb...it's your dream vacation!)
(when you're spending most of the day in the cottage with friends, you don't care about fashion. CJ was dressed for much-needed warmth, but she never can resist getting her feet wet. She's a genuine beach gal.)
