There are friends that are as close as family, they are our chosen family. Our next door neighbors from California still remain our best friends and traveling companions. It was such an incredible surprise to have them here for the entire weekend! We are already planning our next vacation, next year; initially we had thought about Charlotte, N.C. but changed our mind to an Alaskan Cruise and I'm already researching the various land/sea packages. Jim and Barb went on a cruise and land trip about 10 or 11 yrs ago and loved it. Hubby and I have always wanted to see Alaska and this would be such fun.
Now that life is back to normal, I've got fabric to wash and a quilt to design. Hunter is settling back into a quiet house. Our cow takes its farewell journey today; my daughter is feeling a bit sad, as am I. How can you bond with an animal that you were never affectionate with? The kids seem fine with knowing Missy is going to the slaughterhouse, but time will tell if they miss her presence in the pasture. Daughter Carrie says she needs some chickens now.
Have a great Wednesday!
