Time to Enjoy ...

The past month has been one of great relaxation! No long commutes in traffic. No long "to do" lists. Just a slow-paced routine that includes staying close to home. The views are grand. To take a mini trip, I only have to open the window and peek outside. Rolling hills with evergreen trees. Prairie farms tucked in and about our neighborhood. Fields of hay with rainbows from sprinklers. Sites to "drink" in everywhere I look.

Last week the girls and I entered some photos for an upcoming Northern Idaho calendar. I do believe one of L. Ann's will be published. This will make her photography teacher happy! ... and give us an opportunity to buy a few early Christmas gifts for far away family members.

Tomorrow dh arrives for a weeklong visit. We're very excited to have him return ... and miss him much ... he's counting down the days until he's up here full time.

Could there be a wedding next year for my oldest daughter? Will write more on that later!!

Sleep tight.
