Is it just me or do the weekends just go by too fast?
We arrived in Mississippi on Friday night to a house that is being remodeled. A beautiful chaos was going on. The floors are gorgeous and the rooms freshly painted with colors of the Caribbean.
Saturday was a work day. My parents have always been know for working their children at any age. We moved furniture, painted some more, and cleaned. They may work us hard but always reward us with delicious food.
After eating, we went down to the Baptist College, where my mother is a professor, to watch the theatrical version of Our Town. Needless to say the whole moral of this play is to enjoy life before it passes you by.
That was quite the opposite of the car ride over there which we quickly watched our live flash before our eyes. Lets just say taking shortcuts are not what they are cracked up to be. Sometimes they involve having your left turn coming sooner than you think, and you cut through someone's yard, barely missing their trailer, and just praying no one was looking at the white Volvo station wagon wrecking havoc in their yard. Mama never, not one, hit the brakes. I felt like we should have been driving the back roads of Hazard County in the General Lee!
Middle sister is back from Africa! Thank you for your prayers. She really enjoyed it and would love to go back and stay longer. This is what she brought back to us, and I can't tell you how wonderful this chocolate is! I also love our little African man!
The best part of this chocolate is that the nutritious facts are in another language as well as units of measure! I have no idea how bad these could be, but know that they taste delicious. That is all that matters!
Sundays always involve church and getting ready for the week - laundry, dishes, groceries (which I saved 50%!). I enjoyed visiting, but I was so glad to be at home!
I hope you have a wonderful week. I will be continuing my practice of staying in my seat just in case I ride with Mama again!
