(Which is a blessing in and of itself.)
I think I'm starting to get settled into this new routine....
Work is still great, and the work day flies by. Then by the time I've hit the Y and grabbed dinner, the evening is over.
I was pretty worried about having a lot of time on my hands after work and feeling homesick, but thankfully not to much of that yet.
Unfortunately, this weekend flew by just as fast.
The time at home just doesn't seem like enough when Sunday afternoon rolls around.
But my 4 hour drive back to Kearney passes by pretty quickly when I have a good book to read.
(Umm, don't tell my mom or the state patrol I read and drive. I made the mistake of telling Mel I did that and the look of horror on her face was as expected. I should have known better.)
But I did get Jane Kirkpatrick's "A Mending at the Edge" - the last book in the "Change and Cherish Historical Series" finished! I do so love her books and writing style. Next up: "An Absence So Great"
(Yes, the library here in Kearney has Jane's books - wahoo!)
The guys have been baling meadow hay all this week and weekend, and I think they're beginning to feel like they're making some headway after a slower than normal start.
But as it is with any type of farming, machinery has a tendency to break down - or in our case, get stuck.
And this weekend was no exception!
Later this week I'll post more pictures of them haying - and tell you about the crazy ground we have here - sometimes you're on top of sod that is just floating on top of the aquifer.
Have a great Monday - here's to each of us finding more "routine" too!
380. Evening classes at the Y.
381. All of the great amenities in Kearney.
382. Lunch with co-workers.
383. The sense of "family" at the office.
384. Phone calls to Clint at night.
385. Air conditioning. (Was it ever hot & humid here this week!)
387. Meeting the other CED's I'll work with here in the district.
388. The HyVee deli - so many choices!
389. Getting into a routine.
390. Good conversations with new friends.
391. An unexpected and great phone call with my good friend (and old college roommate) Becky - thanks for calling!
392. Being able to catch up effortlessly.
393. Smooth travels home.
394. Longhorns, hay stacks and harvesting crews headed north - all great things to look at on the way home.
395. A husband who stayed up until I got home.
396. An afternoon spent with Clint - even if we were working on the swather.
397. Finishing laundry, dinner and dishes in time for a quick snuggle and a part of a movie.
398. A short Sunday afternoon nap. (It's amazing what a 30 minute nap can do for me!)
399. Settling back in and starting a fresh week.
