I honestly have trouble remembering life before this remodel began ... and it hasn't been all that long! It's funny how something can take over your life so quickly and easily. I'm so thankful for how God has blessed us in different ways through this.
My husband and our sons took a road trip last Sunday to see the annular eclipse. Since it was cloudy here on the coast, they drove until they found sun, which turned out to be about a 4-5 hour drive one way. They didn't get home until nearly midnight but they had fun and took some great photos with their cameras and sun filter. Carmen and I spent the day talking and playing games. We made a simple dessert also. It's fun to see her so interested in cooking. We made dinner together, a new recipe that we modified to suit our tastes. It was a great day for our whole family, and I got to see some photos of the eclipse as it was happening, via computer.
Todd has time off through Memorial Day (the doctor is gone as well). Hopefully, he can move forward with the kitchen, despite the torrential rain and wind we have been having since yesterday. And the weather is looking just as foul for the rest of the week. Springtime on the coast, you know!
