A short list for today:

It's the last day of a 48 and Miss E's first day of Spring Break. We ran errands while Mr. T was at school.

Tomorrow Peter will be home and then he is off for another 48.

The kids both swear they don't want to do any camps this summer yet have been bickering constantly and complaining that they are bored when we are at home.

I don't think the weather is helping anyone. I don't mind the rain, it's just everything being wet. There is moss growing on our car. Actual moss. Growing on our car. And this is a car that gets driven every day and when Peter is at work, it's parked in the bay. But still. Moss.

On Tuesday, Peter is taking the kids to see his parents for four days. I am staying behind to work but I am going to miss them so much. I can't imagine coming home from work 3 nights in a row to a house that only has a dog in it. I have some friends lined up to see but still, it seems like it will be lonely. Maybe refreshing. We'll see.

The flower in the picture is a hellebore and they are my favorites. They are on of the few flowers that will easily grow in our yard under all those huge fir trees and require very little maintenance.

As soon as I decided which camera lens to order, the price went up on Amazon. Since I have to buy it on Amazon (due to gift card prize) I am now waiting, checking my cart 2 or 3 times a day to see when the price will go back down. So. Impatient.

  1. I don't think I was ever in my home without kids or Randy--wow--I would've LOVED it! I hope you do too, and make the most of your totally alone time. I'm still in the same boat--but, oh well. It's the way it is and in acceptance lies peace--truly. Amy Charmichael said that and it's kinda changed my life/heart and is good... And boy oh boy--I get to have your kiddos and husband for awhile--I am excited. But it sure would be better if you were along. Next time-another visit!
