A Weekend Alone!

I think we've found the thing in our family that really makes us tick...time apart. Oh now, don't go getting all worried on me. I know that there are people who can't stand to be away from their family for more than a split second. Well, to each their own!

A few times a year Jason takes Ella and goes away for the weekend. He gets to help get camp ready for the year, Ella gets to see all the fam and It leaves me free to get the things done around the house for which I can never seem to find enough hours in the day (or the things that just never quite make it to the top of my priority list when my two babes are around :)

Oh how glorious it is to sleep in, go at my own pace, eat meals in peace, acomplish task after task without interruption, have time and quiet to think and reflect, have spare moments to break out my camera. Oh how wonderful to have my family return to a happy, refreshed mama, who feels accomplished!

So here's what I did this weekend. Hand graded, seeded and mulched the areas of lawn that needed it. Dug up and planted many a new perrenial plant from a dear friends grandmother. Created and planted the veggie garden and melon mounds as I like to call them. And I threw in some dishes, laundry, finances, hosting at church, baking and small group. I also busted out my camera to take some pictures of the variety of beauty in my gardens these days. Enjoy!

So glad that you had a wonderful weekend, Sarah! Thank you for sharing Jason & Ella. I had a wonderful visit with them, although, you were sorely missed!
Cannot wait to see your garden!!
