Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Imagine this...I'm still trying to get my ducks in a row after being gone for seven days. However, I did take some time out this weekend for more adventures. I played moral support and go-fer girl to Rob whilst he installed our countertop. I don't know that I'd choose to be his regular sidekick as we finished at 3:00 a.m.
I love it...sleep is overrated.
24 invited some friends over (hers but we've adopted them) for dinner and games. She served Vegan ice cream sandwiches. YUMMO! (and if it helps, the non-vegans were surprised that they were vegan and everyone agreed they were delicious.)
Finally we visited a few local sites and enjoyed some interesting experiences. Our area has "famous" soil. Loess soil. And along the scenic strip of Loess soil hills some folks have begun something called Third Saturdays.
Several places are open for tours. We thought we'd hit a few, even though it was beastly hot... one location is a sandwich shop. Grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich. Yep. Pretty tasty.
We visited a lavender farm where they grow....wait for it, lavender. Can't miss it, everything is purple.
We also visited an organic goat farm. Got to see the sweet operation and got a little hand's on experience as well.
