These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Homeward bound

Tomorrow is the day I start home. I'm ready. And I'm so not ready! I've enjoyed my visit, if we can just exclude the memory of two days of depressing, bleak, grey clouds, and pouring rain. I was in good company, or I wouldn't have made it!

It has been a wonderful visit. Today was a lazy day for me. Kirk is rebuilding a pop-up camp trailer they bought for a steal, and he was focused on that today. They are going to The Keys in a couple weeks, and he has to get it in order before then. Terri, the kids and I did some minor shopping, mostly focused on taking Philip to the book store for birthday books, then across the street of the mall for Cold Stone Creamery. My book-buying for Lexi's birthday in July will be easier .... an Amazon gift card for Kindle books for her! Her trip to Cold Stone Creamery will have to wait till we see each other again, so perhaps getting some today will help. Then back at home Terri finished up her lesson plans for the coming week. Now Kirk has started the grill for dinner .... steaks, grilled asparagus, and a baked potato. Yummmmm!

I've packed the suitcase, and it will go to the car tonight. Tomorrow morning, Terri and the kids will leave for school, and I will head out to Pensacola to spend the night again at Linda's parents' home. Then two hard days of driving, and we will be home again. I'll miss this family, but it will be wonderful to get home to "my own family." And boy, is Max gonna get it!!!

So .... I don't know about internet connections on the say back. I'll just say for now .... hasta la vista, baby!!!


  1. Have a safe journey home, my friend. Are you going to put Max in "time out"?

  2. Daisy, is the sky blue? OH, YEAH!

  3. Hope your trip home is good. I know you feel a whole lot better than your trip to Florida.

    I was just thinking today about how much I miss you and your FB updates. I am really happy you were able to get away for a bit and spend time with the family, but I am glad that soon you will be back to your normal posting self. :)

    Give Max (and rest of the babies) a big kiss from me. I am sooo happy he is home.

  4. I am wishing safe travels for you Lynilu. And don't be too hard on the little wanderer, he probably was just revolting because mom left for a bit! He's gonna be sooooo happy to see you!
    Love Di ♥

  5. Finally I have internet. I am so happy that you outsmarted Max. He must have had a grand old time.

    What a beautiful family. There is your sunshine. It sounds like you had lots of fun.

    I have no doubt the first thing you will do to Max when you get home is... give him a big hug.


  6. So next time does Max get to go with, lol!

  7. Have a safe trip!

    And I am glad to hear Max has returned.


  8. Hope you have a good trip home. I have been away too. I went back to NY for a few days for the Sr. High Musical at our school. All the entertainment here in LV and I go to little ole Marion for a high school musical. It was TERRIFIC.

    ~hippo hugs~

  9. Have a safe trip the kids are bouncing off the walls waiting for your return.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
