i've been running around like a headless bird for the last few weeks-- i am tired from too little sleep and a bit burnt from constant doing. does this sound familiar?! i know this is not an exclusive condition of my own. we are all struggling to keep up. there is so much to do!
my husband and youngest son and i are going on a little foray to a warmer climate-- down near st. petersburg, florida. it was my husband's christmas gift to me. i've been looking forward to this trip since december 25th! we rarely ever have a chance to get away-- let alone to a more exotic location. so, despite all of the many tasks to complete before going, i 'm excited and looking forward to feeling the warm sand under my feet, and i will sit and watch the gulf waters stretch out before me... that might be all i do.
here is a photo of a little bird ( with its head ON!) ---he is pointing south i think--at least in relation to where i'm sitting in my house right now...... pointing toward the direction of my brief getaway.
