Greetings from southwest Missouri!
Just wanted to check in with you all.
I'm completely relaxed, rested, and recharged.
I've slept so much since I've been here.
I've relaxed so much since I've been here.
I could get used to this.
We visited Branson the first full day I was here.
I hadn't been there in a couple of years, I couldn't get over the growth.
Branson is all fine and dandy, and we ate at a great Mexican restaurant right here by the fountains called 'Cantina Laredo'.
If you go to Branson, I'd highly recommend it.
But these are the scenes that grab my heart.
Old dilapidated houses.
I haven't even visited the cemetery, or my sister yet.
I don't think I'd realized how tired I was.
But, I think I'm well rested now, because I asked my cousin if we could tear apart a room in the house and re-do it today.
He said 'no'.
So I planted a little herb garden for him.
I'm itching to do something.
Glenco calls me daily with egg reports, and who is the rooster's 'favorite' at the moment.
Fifi is proving to be quite a floozy.
He puts the phone by the ducks so I can talk to them, and I have to remind him to play with the ducks daily, and hold them, and talk to them.
They need that, you know.
It has been a fruitful trip, though, and I've realized many a thing since my arrival.
Including, but not limited to:
I need to rest a little more when I'm home.
Afternoon coffee is a good, a very good thing.
A good bra is worth it's weight in gold.
Long walks in the woods should be a common occurrence.
Love conquers all, and I do mean all, even when it doesn't seem like it is, it is.
I appreciate all of my friends and family so much.
Material things don't impress me at all. AT. ALL.
I miss my blog buddies.
I'll be rolling back northeast on Tuesday morning.
Thanks for your comments and emails!
I'm looking forward to reconnecting next week.
