Anyway! We have a day off and then a couple normal days and then we have a wonderful, promising, enriching-days-ahead kind of a week. That means that the laundry baskets must be emptied so choices can be made. It means that ducks must be in a row and teachers informed and papers put on hold and the camper loaded. And just in a micro-flash, in will all be over and we will be back here blogging again wondering just how time could go so fast.
We had a wee taste of fellowship the other night. This lady has been working in India for 42 years until her visa could no longer be renewed. I asked her at the table if there was anything about India she didn't like - i.e. food, living conditions, etc. Her face lit up and she said, 'I loved everything about India'. I love that. And we walked in the door of our friends to spend time with her and her sweet niece - after about 13 seconds, we became dear friends. I love how that works.

I saw this picture this week. We had several of these behmouth station wagons growing up. I think one time we jammed ten people in it and headed off without a care or seatbelt to be found. I think my slightly nice older brother and me often had a very different vacation than the rest of my family sitting up front because we saw everything backwards and tried to avoid eye contact with the guy right behind us. We'd talk and sing loudly and give each other noogies on the head and when things got really cRaZY he'd push my fuzzy-braided head down to the floorboard and hold me down until my shrieks would irritate our parents. Such deliciously wonderful memories.
Here is something else I enjoyed:
Well back to laboring around here. Don't feel sorry for me because I intend to take a leisurely nap soon after.
Happy week ahead! Mine will be happy, but more so, it will be full of joy.
