RELAXING and Realizations!

We haven't been going many places and we've been okay with that. Although I did not leave my responsibilities children at home, I've still been able to enjoy myself with a few books to read and some quiet meditation. Okay, so not so quiet with 6 year old twins but hey, I'll take what I can get. I have some great fall designs for table centerpieces and I'm looking forward to putting the plans together.
We'll be travelling tomorrow to Nauvoo to see the Pageant. I've always wanted to go and I think the twins will enjoy it. I'm not sure about these triple digit temps we are having though! 104 yesterday and 105 today? HELLO? My part of Florida is cooler than this! Also might take a trip into Chicago this weekend with my oldest daughter; just the 2 of us. WHATEVER will I do with myself?!!!
Oh, and did I mention how DELISH the corn is here?!!! YUMMMMMMMM!!!
We'll be returning home next weekend. Yes, I've missed my home and surroundings and most especially, the routine of our handicapped daughter. She's adjusted 'well enough'. It's super tough to take 'them' out of their controlled environment which is one reason we don't go anywhere.
I've missed my communication with all of you, my cyber friends! My world is small but made so much more enjoyable because of you! 
Hoping your Summer, vacation, and travels are going well. Cannot believe we're halfway through the year already. The twins will turn 7 soon. Still shaking my head in disbelief over that one!
My best to all of you!
As always,
Stay Tuned!

Hi ya Vicky! We miss you too gal :) I'm so glad though to hear that you're taking a well deserved break. I'm like you in that my blog friends make my life more exciting and are an important part of it. So you take care at that pageant and stay as cool as you can, even if you gotta pour something cool on your head... LOL.
Love ya!
