so it is friday night. we are done cleaning the house and waiting on the kitchen floors to dry so i can put all the cleaning stuff up and move laundry over…(yay). we are watching tv while the floors dry and waiting on my parents to get here. we are thinking about baking cookies…but we might do that tomorrow….just depends on how things go in the next little bit.
i talked to CT’s daughter in law yesterday and she was doing good. i am going to text tomorrow morning and see how she is doing. i am excited about going into town next weekend (if closing goes as it should) so that i can see her.
today andy took me to work (like most days and unlike most days he took me to lunch). while we were topping this hill (like we do each day) we can see the mountain. i have always said if i lived at the beach i would never grow old of it. of the salt water smell. of the sound of the waves. of the sand between my toes. of long walks and sunsets. of the immense beauty. i still believe this. (i know there are things that would annoy me….like sand everywhere, weather changes, tourist season). but each morning and evening when i top this hill and see the mountain i realize that i could have said the same thing about the mountains…that i would never fall out of love with them. the shadows and vast color. the shapes they create in the sky. the way the air seems cleaner. the way the trees make the outline as a group…but still remain individuals. the constant reminder that God did that! there are things that still annoy me (the weather…the curves in the roads…tourist season) but i love it.
in charlotte i existed. i never really loved or hated it…it was just somewhere i lived. now that i am away from there i miss things….things that i didn’t really think about while i lived there. restaurants and shopping (obviously). some days a long ride home was great to clear my head and to think. i miss the familiar sights. knowing where everything is. i don’t miss traffic that is for sure!
anyways while i am sitting here thinking about baking cookies i was thinking about that…..
