Oh my, over a week since I was last here. I am amazed that this week has flown by as quickly as it has. However not surprised. It has been a full week. Some of the events that made it full were intended, others not. My tasks at the beginning of the week were to complete readying our home and yard for guests coming in on Memorial Day weekend. I did manage to accomplish quite a bit of the house cleaning and de-cluttering that I had set out to do. Right on schedule. Even a little ahead. In the later part of the week certain events took place that took our focus in a different direction. Our focus has been consumed with this other direction since Thursday and nothing else has been accomplished including rest until today. We had a bit of normalcy today in that we have been able to get some much needed rest both mentally and physically and doing mundane tasks such as treating the wood floors as a family has helped to take our thoughts into a restful state. At least during the time that we were working around the house. Or, I guess more-so, we were able to focus on something less demanding for a short bit of time. I have been able to come here and see all that I have missed. All of you have been very busy this past week. I have lots to catch up with. I will do that through the next few days. No fantastic pictures to post and share this time, but soon.
