As wonderful as the last 5 weeks have been (OK, excluding the Nomad Adventure of choosing paint, wallpaper, etc., --twice--and packing up COMPLETELY the apartment in UB for remodeling--being with Randy was great despite all that ;) I am ready for some serious downtime. As in lots of quiet interspersed with loud music, sleep, and, well, solitude. Just enough to catch my breath. Not that I would ever trade time with Randy--he is the ultimate "back door company," you know?
The 2 weeks of Randy's home leave were wonderful. Chock full of family and each other. Every moment intentional. Every moment wonderful.
I took Randy to the the airport at 5 am this morning. Sigh. Alone again. Sigh. What's a gal to do? Take a walk around the lake. Have an absolutely quiet quiet time. Whip through some housework. Make appointments for hair and manicure/pedicure for today, hello:) Buy a ton of annuals. Appreciate all the eye popping green around me. Grill some fish and veggies. Watch a chick flick. Yes!!

This time last year, due to some personal & painful stuff, I knew that I would be all right in Jesus. At this time, I feel I am all right. Subtle, but substantial, difference. Praise His name.
Tomorrow: sleep till I'm done. Play in the the dirt and plant flowers. Sew! Off the clock. Blog about the last 2 weeks! Great fun. Good for the heart.
Stay tuned :)
