Today is our last day away. We pack up and head home tomorrow. I miss my kids and I miss my home. I really miss my own bed! But it’s been a fabulously restful time away with my husband as we celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. (This post contains some affiliate links. You can read my full disclosure policy here.)
I’ve read, but not nearly as much as I thought I would. I’ve stitched, but not nearly as much as I thought I would. I’ve written some, but I haven’t even thought about the planning that I was just sure I’d do while we were away. There’s been a whole lot of relaxing, long walk taking and gazing out at the ocean. It’s been great!
I’ve almost finished the hand stitching on this first little hexie project. I have just a few more french knots to go, and then it will be ready for me to sit down at the machine, hopefully next week, to finish up.
I’ve read quite a bit in Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus this week. I just finished her chapter on parents and prayer, “Go Tell Your Father”; and it has been, for me, worth the price of the entire book! So much grace for the parent! Such wonderful reminders of God’s love for us, as parents, as well as His love for our children. Good stuff! I’ve just a couple more chapters to go.
I’m less than a hundred pages into TransAtlantic, but I plan to spend most of my afternoon with it. It’s the last piece of fiction on my summer reading list, and I’m hoping for the best!
It’s been foggy and overcast all week, much to my husband’s delight. This afternoon, however, the sun is breaking through, much to my delight! I plan to head back out to the deck and soak in all the wonderful beachy sunshine, sounds and aromas that I can!
