Friday!! Glorious Friday!!!

Ok… It’s Friday!! Glorious Friday!!! Have I ever told you how much I love my Fridays? Fridays are the days I get to play in what I really really love. Being at home with my husband and my dog, connecting with people on a deep and personal level, tending to our garden, and building our little business. I could be just as busy on a Friday as I am on a Thursday, but at the end of the day, I’m still energized, refreshed, and ready for more. I’m always sad when the day ends.

Yesterday – and in fact this whole week – have been almost entirely devoted to getting ready to leave my Day Job, affectionately referred to as my Yob, for an entire month. The details boggle my own mind. It feels like climbing out of quicksand. Went to bed last night thinking, not about the trip or about packing today, but about a few details I forgot to complete at work. Not able to be in the present or look to the future until I put away the past. A quick phone call this morning to the office, and all is well.

Today – is the day to do the same for my home, and to have my last meal with my beloved husband for three long weeks. He and Wallace will have their own journey at home while I’m away.

Kim, Harrah, Sandy, and Auntie Em… Ready or not, here I come!

      Sounds like fun. I’m a little shy about the bacon these days, after watching Food.Inc. But heck, I’m on vacation!!! Wherever you go dear Kimmie, there I am!

    Fawn, just make sure that you don’t do any penance exercise around Kim after eating the Bacon!!

      Yes, Adrienne, Kim has already warned me about the penance exercise! I’ll do my penance in private… and eat bacon in public!!
