We had a busy long weekend and I just have not been able to get back in the groove, blogging or otherwise.
We hit the road and drove 7 hours to go see my girl and to drop off her younger sister to her.
T. will be attending a youth outreach training program in her sister's city and so gets to live with her bigger sister, whom she misses very much. It's with a bit of trepidation that this Mom dropped her off, however, because it was this same training program that started the K. on her journey to moving to that city and so far away from us. But the visit was really nice and it's always nice to get away from the daily routine.
We relaxed and took advantage of gorgeous surroundings and a nice walk around their lake on what turned out to be a beautiful, hot summer day.
Saw some Canada geese who were still celebrating Canada Day.
And what's a trip to another city without visiting their mall. And of course, scoring a great deal on a cute purse!
Lots of visiting and eating and another 7 hour drive later, we are back here and struggling to get back to routine even though we were only gone a few days. Getting back to that said routine is really hard when the weather is so summery and (for us) hot. I just want to sit on the deck or in the shade with a book and an iced coffee all day long. But back to routine I must get. Yes, so here I go. Any moment now.
