I'm sorry I have been rather silent lately. After the four day blitz of activity, I appear to have picked up a bug that has been going around. Other than the gotta do's of the day, I have been on the sofa feeling like I was hit by the proverbial truck. I'm a little better today, at least well enough to get to the computer.
I'm suppose to meet two friends for lunch, former neighbors that get together a few times a year. We're to try out a new restaurant near Campus, I think it is Vietnamese. Working with one car, I'll be driving my son to the junior college for an exam, then driving to the University to meet my friends, picking him up later and then the drive back home to the country. I've decided I should get paid by the mile, if anyone was paying Moms for...mothering. At least the weather is fine, frigid temps but no ice/snow on the ground that would make for difficult driving conditions.
While recovering, I have been rereading Shepherd's Abiding by Jan Karon. It is definitely one of my favorite novels, the storyline one of hope and renewal. I read through the January issue of Romantic Homes last night, too. Sigh...it really is a vacation for the eyes. It is enjoyable to read about England, tea time, collections, etc.
I brewed some HT (Harney & Son) Ginger Peach blend (which sounded good for one under the weather) and sipped it while reading. I have had that tea for nearly a year and it is still quite good. I like the way they are whole leaf teas but in a "teabag".
Now...off for a much needed quiet time to strengthen the soul before starting on the day's long journey!
