Road Trip


Well, the packing is pretty much done, the food is ready, and the basket of things to do, read, listen to and watch is full. We are ready for our annual trip south to visit my parents, and the two of us are excited!

This year required a little more work to prepare for our trip, mostly in finding someone to look after the dog, the cat, and the chickens while we are gone. It took me a couple of tries, but I finally found someone, and I think she will work out just fine. She will be staying in our home, and taking care of the animals, and I feel good knowing that the house and the animals will be well tended to while Reece and I are gone.

Now, all I need to focus on is getting a little extra rest, and packing up the car. We are set to leave in the early hours of Saturday morning, arriving in Mrytle Beach, after an overnight stay in Virginia, on Sunday around lunch time.

Next time I stop in here, I will be on the beach.

Happy weekend, friends!

  10. Kim, This is just a bit from one of my favorites from John O'Donohue. The entire poem is entitled For the Traveler...

    May you travel in an awakened way,
    gathered wisely into your inner ground;
    that you may not waste the invitations which
    wait along the way to transform you.

    May you travel safely, arrive refreshed,
    and live your time away to its fullest;
    return home more enriched, and free to balance
    the gift of days which call you.

    ~ John O'Donohue

    1. Oh I so agree Chantall, so much healing happening as I walk by the ocean, listening to the rolling waves, and watching as they let go and return to the ocean, and breathing in the fresh ocean air. It all feels so good. Thank you. xo
