Guess Who's Back? Back Again?
I am back from a Memorial Day in Southport, North Carolina! It seems such a charmed life to go to such neat towns and travel. And it is! I am grateful for the ability to travel and have trusted care for my Samuel, but I promise that it's not all roses!
Matt has been on a working streak for the last three weeks and has been in Southport for the last week and a half. I was able to drive (approximately 7.5 hours) to see him for a few days. No, the work did not stop while I was there! But it was time for me to hang out, read and go with the flow. We had about 1/2 a day to go out and Matt and Kraig (his co-worker) were able to ski and wake board that day. My job was to spot while I took a break from reading my book. :)
I was able to listen to two audio books on the way there and back. That is what entertained me for the long car drive and it was really fun! I listened to 2 books that I was not likely to pick up and read. They are The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella and The Second Assistant by Mimi Hare and Clare Naylor. Definitely light reading. And I don't feel guilty. For 2 reasons: One, I have done my time in school and enjoy light reading once in a while. Two, it's audio listening on the way to the beach!
For my more serious novel reading I read The Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers. I am still in the heat of reading this one, but I definitely find it entertaining and would likely recommend it.
Well, I am back to getting settled in the duties of life and home. Again, there is no place like home, no matter what! I hope to share some home improvements and sewing projects soon. ;)
