It seems that being at the beach for 17 days in one month makes me feel like I’ve lost something?!?! Could it be time?
Driving home from the beach yesterday all the leaves were lovely yellows, reds, oranges and browns. When did that happen? There were a few changing leaves when I left, but they were so beautiful yesterday! It was amazing!
Being gone so much is a real blessing, and I’m totally spoiled! But there is something so weird about being gone for so long. I feel totally disconnected from “real” life and my friends at home. It was hard to get up and get going this morning! I had to get myself and Avery up and get everyone dressed and fed so they could be on their way to school.
Boy that was a lot different than the last week when we all got up whenever we wanted. I’d make coffee and do my devotions on the deck overlooking the ocean!! We’d wear our jammies until we felt like getting dressed which was usually around the time we were ready to go out on the beach! It was great, but now back to real life!
I got to spend some really good time with family as well! We got to be with Mimi and Papa and Uncle Robert, Aunt Amy and Reagan which was a real treat! We also got together with David’s Mom’s side of the family and had a total blast playing on the beach and in the heated pool together - good times!
Then today I don’t think it got above 60 degrees and it’s been mostly cloudy – and I’m again reminded that it’s actually fall. Not my most favorite time of the year, but not my least favorite either. I don’t like winter too much… I like if through about the end of December, then I’m ready for spring! So fall is just a reminder that winter is on its way… But I’m glad I got to spend so much time – and with some really great weather – at the beach to help hold off the feelings of fall.
Now on to trying to decided what to do for Avery’s 2nd birthday!
