I’m wrapped up in my most favorite cozy faux fur blanket listening to husband hum along to some James Taylor. Thanksgiving is in two days and everybody’s planning their dishes and deciding which turkey-themed activities we should do with Andrew’s nephews on Thursday afternoon before we all stuff our faces. It’s good to be back in the good ol’ U. S. of A.
We’ve been back for a little more than a month and our WWOOFing recap video has been sitting on the desktop waiting to be edited the. entire. time. I guess you could say we’ve just been too busy to post. (Hah!) But it’s going up this week for SURE, you guys. I promise.
These days, we’re hanging out with Andrew’s folks in Marietta. They were kind enough to hang on to most of our junk when we left for New Zealand are acting as home base for us until we pack everything up to move on to our next (and conceivably most permanent) home at the start of 2015. You’ll learn more about that in another post soon.
In the mean time, I am making absolute mountains of art, baking more bread than you could shake a stick at (as if any of you would ever shake a stick at any bread) and walking the dogs a whole lot. Andrew’s acquired a taste for building model ships and the two of us are working to learn a couple new programming languages on the side.
The treadmill and I have become good buddies over the past couple weeks. The floor has too, since I spend just about as much time laying there- waterlogged by my own sweat and gasping for air- as I do actually running on the treadmill. But it is what it is.
Can I tell you, too, that it is such a relief not to NEED my
camera phone to document everything I do now? It’s good to be back.
Happiest of Thanksgivings to you and yours, folks. Love on your friends, your families, your pets, and be sure to eat whatever you darn well please. Also, keep an eye out for upcoming posts after you’ve gorged yourself on Thanksgiving leftovers. Some pretty neat little tidbits coming soon!
