A Short Blog Break

Just a quick post tonight to let you all know that I will be away from the blog world for the next few days. I hope I don't go through withdrawal :-)

Tomorrow we are taking our youngest son to college and then after we get him set up we will continue on to my Mom's house to start the process of getting her ready to move into assisted living. There is a lot of paperwork to fill out, decisions to be made about which of her belongings will make the move with her and hopefully we can provide some happiness and moral support to her as she prepares for this next step in her life.

I hope to be back to blogging sometime next week.

Until then, I hope you all have a relaxing and restful weekend.


  1. Have a safe trip and wishing you strength in taking care of things for your mom.

    Hugs ~

  2. Good luck with your trip. Hope everything goes well with your mom!


  3. The Lord's peace be with you during everything.


  4. Gosh, I'm going to miss you. I'll have to go read through your archives so I don't have withdrawals myself! Best wishes of course to your mother. Hoping and praying all goes well. I'll be watching for your return. Twyla

  5. Oh I love your bench!!!
    Hope things go smoothly for you in the next few days. I'll add a prayer too.

  6. Good luck to you. Hope everything goes well.


  7. Exciting time in all your lives. Have a safe trip.
    I love your garden bench. Is the statue attached to the bench?

  8. Have a safe trip.

    Only last month we sent our second son to the university. He is doing his Diploma in Quantity Surveying. I had to drive for almost seven hours to reach his university.

    Now he is back with us for a week vacation with his right leg in plaster cast. He broke his ankle in a friendly rugby between junior and senior students. He was really hooked to rugby and had played rugby since he was thirteen.

    When we were in Athens, Georgia, we did visit Smokey mountain - oh what a sight, all the beautiful foliage colours.

    We also visited Gatlinburg - what a city.

  9. Travel safe on this new journey!
