Back to business....
As much as I love new adventures and new things, after a few days I start craving the normalcy of my days.
So it's time to get back to business, back into the routine and back to my blogging :)
I wouldn't say I took a break per se, more of a cut back on the amount of blogging these past two weeks while we welcomed the family and reconnected.
Oh it's so important to reconnect and to talk and chat and laugh....goodness to laugh, until your stomach hurts, until your snorting, until you have tears running down your face. It feels wonderful.
Anyway, it's Sunday morning and the house is fast asleep, the kids are all camped out in one bedroom, some on the floor, others in the beds. It makes me smile, I love them all so very much and they get along beautifully.
Is there anything better than cousins? I don't think so.
Church this morning is not going to happen, I woke up with a sore throat and congested, my hubby and sister in law both have stiff necks and sore backs, my Jasmine has a sore neck too, my brother's allergies are bugging the heck out of him and I think we're all just a total mess to go anywhere.
We'll stay home, watch a movie or something, relax and just take it easy.
Yesterday we packed an easy lunch and headed to the lake for a few hours. I do love going out there, it's beautiful and so peaceful. The best place to forget any stresses that may be bothering you and to let it all go.
Along the way I stopped quite a few times for my niece Tiffany to see the horses and take pictures. You have no idea how much this child adores horses, she just beams when she's near them.
And it melts my heart. I would like nothing more than to get a horse for her.
Love, love, love this picture I snapped of her. You can see in her face how much she loves these horses.
These two girls are so cute together.
Just a little glimpse of our day at the lake.
As I said, it's back to business now, I've relaxed, I've enjoyed myself but I do miss my blog something fierce and I miss knowing what you've all been up to. I've started coming around to say hi but I'm afraid it will take me a little longer than a few minutes to get to everyone's blog.
No worries though, got all the time in the world right?
Oh and I didn't forget about the dishcloths for sale, I have one to finish and then I'll start selling the ones that are already complete. I don't know just how many I'll be able to get to, as my time is going to be very short with all the family here......matter of fact I'll be homeschooling my kiddos AND my niece and nephew, so that's 4 kids which I'm sure will keep me really busy LOL
I guess I'll finish this post with what I have planned for today......
WHAT I'M COOKING:
Lunch will be something easy, either sandwiches or I may even grab some tacos which the kids love and my niece and nephew haven't been able to have in South Africa, so they're always asking me if they can have some now lol
Dinner will be Chicken Curry
WHAT I'M WATCHING:
Doctor Who (got the family into it lol)
Who do you think you are?
