â€œVacationâ€ is over. Gary made it safe and sound to our June project (Americaâ€™s Keswick in Whiting, NJ), and I have returned from my very precious â€œGirlsâ€™ Weekâ€ in Vermont.
And just to digress a moment about GW 2006 â€“ it was great! I have been blessed with wonderful sisters. And we have been blessed to have this wonderful cabin in Vermont where we can connect with each other once a year. While there is always the busy-ness of opening the cabin for the season â€“ mowing, cleaning, defrosting, de-bugging, there is always time for laughing and crying and playing and praying and family visiting and reading and singing and staying up late and sleeping in andâ€¦.well, Iâ€™m sure you get my drift. I was having such a great time that I totally failed to take my traditional cabin pictures â€“ but you can check here to see the ones from our trip earlier this spring. And here are just a couple from our day visiting family in Waitsfield, VT. This is the Mad River â€“ though it doesnâ€™t look very mad here!
And a wonderful covered bridge….
So, here we are in New Jersey. It still makes me smile to think how weâ€™ve been â€œon the roadâ€ for close to two years, and here we are in NEW JERSEY! However, there are new things to be discovered everywhere, and today we drove to a lovely little community near Toms River and found out just how pretty that riverâ€™s edge could be (thanks, Michelle!).
Tomorrow we get to work at whatever they have for us to do. Iâ€™m not sure anyone has a firm handle what exactly that will be so Iâ€™ll fill in the details when I get them!
