Mini Retreat ~ Back to Reality World
I gave up my computer over the weekend, and wrote with pen and paper. Which was a challenge, considering I wrote in the care with Hubby driving. I hope I can read my hand writing today. It will be a challenge in itself to get caught back up.
Upon returning, we plunged directly into reality world. No time to sip wine on the porch, or lounge around and read books either. We dove right back in whether we wanted to or not.
Hubby had to replace a wheel bearing in his truck, and while that was going on, I found out that Oldest Daughter's car would not start.
Our 19 year-old daughter's car is not running (again) now. I thought Hubby replaced the fuel pump, but I found out he only cleaned lines, and the fuel pump was running these last few weeks. Now, her car won't start, so we have an unplanned trip to trailer the car back home soon, and work on her car.
Youngest is now bouncing back and forth with feeling ill. She's home today, so I'll be mixing up some homemade ginger-ale for her.
Looks like the weather may warm up, so there is hope for tackling that mess of a tree in my yard. Time will tell.
