finally a minute to come back and post my other pictures from our weekend away.
it’s always craziness and busy around here, and finding the time, or making the time to sit down and blog sometimes is harder than others.
this week has been full of normal things as well as a few out of the ordinary things with friends.
all good, you know?!
but, before i have too big a pile of other things i want to blog about, i’ll finish this little weekend thing.
day two of our weekend away was very, very low-key.
we don’t like to do much on Sunday’s if we can avoid it, so we decided we would just get up late, eat breakfast and then head out to the beach and the bay.
it was a gloriously sunny day there and while 60 degrees is not sun-bathing weather, it was actually pretty pleasant out on the beach.
of course, we also had it to ourselves.
i wished we would have had a blanket so we could have sat along the shore and just stared out at the ocean.
to someone who recharges by being alone, the beach, a blanket and QUIET is next to perfection.
but, it was delightful to just walk along the edge, to watch the dolphins, to feel the wind and see the waves.
from there, we drove just down the road and watched these guys in the bay.
it was so fun to watch these guys in this sport.
not that i have any interest in trying anything of this sort.
and, from here, we drove on towards home.
we stopped for a late lunch/early supper in Christiana, Delaware.
it makes me laugh to say this, and yet, i am completely secure in saying it:
we are our lunch close to the t.v.’s in Ruby Tuesday’s so that Tim could watch the football game, and i could read my Grisham book.
it was a quiet, peaceful and both of us were totally happy with the situation.
it’s funny how as the years go by, you find this rhythm together where no matter what you’re doing, you are just happy to *be* together.
it was one of those times.
looking on it might have looked like we were two islands, but we knew what and where we were.
and, then, after grabbing one last Starbucks drink, we headed back to our children.
refreshed and recharged.
i don’t know when we’ll get away again.
probably not for a long time.
and, it’s okay.
most of the time.
but, whether or not we do get away again in the near future, this weekend away is always going to be near to my heart.
going into this 37th year of my life, i realize that with all the changes we are facing, it could be a very big year.
probably will be a very big year.
