Together Again

John is home...finally! He left last Sunday for Santa Fe, NM. He's been there all week attending the Glen Workshop. He had a great time and got to enjoy beautiful Santa Fe, but we're so glad he's back home. It's just not the same around here without him.

Our week without him was pretty uneventful. The kids and I made two library runs, a grocery shopping trip, and one night we went to pick up a pizza. Other than that, we didn't leave the house, and it was wonderful. Soon enough we'll be back in the school groove and our activity will itensify. And I'm not really looking forward to that because I prefer a slow, slow pace of life. I'm really praying about my fall schedule and what activities I should choose to fill my calendar space. I know that if I'm not intentional about what I commit to, I will end up frazzled. There are so many good things to do--Bible study, volunteering at school, etc, but I'm asking God to show me what is best.

Because we've stayed close to home this week, and because John missed eating the yummy New Mexican cuisine at The Shed in Santa Fe, we're going to our favorite mexican place for dinner tonight! Can't wait! S & sorry you can't join us...we'll be sure to eat plenty for you guys.

John had my camera with him this week in Santa Fe, so I'll leave you with some of the photos he took, and with some of our vacation pictures I didn't get downloaded before he left with the camera! Enjoy your weekend!

Thank you for your kind comments on my blog.

My husband returned yesterday from a 3-day trip, and I was glad for him to get home, too!

Enjoyed more pix of CO, and also the ones from Santa Fe. My mom created a recipe based on a meal she had in Santa Fe--it's on my blog--check it out in the recipes section. I make it all the time--we love it!

May I ask what your fave Mexican place is there? My parents eat at Mission Inn a lot, and I used to go to Jose Muldoon's fairly often when I lived there.

Enjoy your weekend!

We're headed to see Ratatouille tonight and I was just thinking On the Border sounded that where you're going? Just curious!

The pictures are great! I would like to go there sometime.

Have a fun day with your family!

3Margaritas is our fave! If you've never been there, you should try it sometime...hands down, it's the best!

Boy, Mexican sounds great, and I'm starving! Right now I have no idea what supper will consist of. Need to start thinking about it, though....

Love the pictures, and hope y'all have a wonderful and blessed weekend, Mer. :-)

Love and hugs,

I'm with you--the slow life is for me. I do like to do things, but I can't handle getting "frazzled"--as you said. Great pictures--and I'm glad you are all back together again. Have fun eating out.

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. Love your pics of your vacation. Makes me miss CO even more. We may have crossed paths and not even known it!

I feel your husband has been at the last camp for the summer this week.

What wonderful pictures! So glad he's back home safe and sound. Sounds like you guys had a good, low-key week while he was gone. And hey, Mexican when he got back sounds pretty terrific to me :)

Have a great day, and a wonderful week!
