I think I could sleep standing up!
Although today wasnt really a busy day, per se, it was a long one.
I got up and did some laundry, straightened the house, washed the never-ending onslaught of dishes, then decided I wanted to go to the Windmill. (A large craft and farmer’s type market) It takes about an hour to get there and off I went on my own.
It was wonderful not feeling hurried or rushed with the family waiting in the truck. I got to chat with Pastor Bert and Janine’s son, Nate, for a long time. We had a lot of catching up to do since I haven’t seen him in ages. Nate was there selling flowers and plants for his mom and dad who own a greenhouse business.
I walked around, admiring all sorts of beautiful items and it was just a lot of fun looking at whatsoever *I* decided to see! I think I was there for about an hour and a half and it really made me feel better. Sometimes it is so easy to get bogged down by the cares of home ownership. Seems like there is an endless amount of things that need to be tended and it is easy to get swallowed up by everything!
I took only one photo at the Windmill…
I love horses and when I was a little girl, I always dreamed of one day owning one! It never happened and I think perhaps it never will. They are such beautiful animals and every time I see them, I have to stop and look at them! The particular horse here lives next door to the Mennonite run store I often mentioned here…Oak Hill Farms.
I did end up buying some Wildflower Honey and a huge Lobelia plant. The plant actually has Impatiens and some Ivy planted in with it and it is hanging on the front porch. I love the beautiful color!
I got back home at about three-thirty and we fiddled around until leaving the house at five-thirty for the kids to attend a show in Naples. After dropping the kids off, Mark and I went for a ride to Wayland, about 20 miles from Naples. We went to the school there and I told Mark we ought to walk and roll there. We did and we went almost two miles. It sure was a lot more interesting walking the school property than the track we usually walk. Mark checked out our distance on Google Maps and discovered we went almost two miles. Yay!
We picked the kids up at almost ten-thirty and it was all I could do to stay awake! We have more plans for a busy day tomorrow. Guess I had better get some sleep….soon! Oh, and as an aside, I saw the first Hummingbird at the feeder out front today. Hurrah!!
