Today is another packing day. This week we're heading off on a short get-away to northern Idaho. Sandpoint to be exact. Beautiful scenery! I'm looking forward to it. We've been traveling a lot lately, and we've had a lot of fun, but I'm ready to settle down and stay home for awhile. We have a busy summer planned. This trip -- then our son is coming home from a 2 year church mission the end of June -- then a grandbaby due to arrive the beginning of August -- and a daughter's wedding the end of August. Sounds like a full summer with lots of planning and preparations. I'm thinking I better put my feet up, enjoy the beautiful lake and forested surroundings of Sandpoint, and start taking my vitamins, because when I get home I'm going to have to hit the ground running. The rest of the summer is going to be bizzzeeee!
Another tidbit... My birthday was a couple of weeks back and my mother gave me some money to buy something I'd love. (I love having money in my purse just for me. It's a heady feeling!) Anyway, the money sat tight in my wallet for a couple of weeks (somewhat unusual), but this week I found just the right thing to spend it on. When I locked my eyes on this comfy rattan bench, it made my heart sing! What's more -- it was on sale at my favorite go-to store. She looks like she's rattan, but she's actually made of polyester, so she'll hold up for years to come. Practicality and beauty -- a wonderful combination. Love the snazzy red cushion and pillow. Thank youuuu, mother!
