It's great to wake up, look out my window and see the mountains! It was great to wake up last week and sit on my dad's deck overlooking Beaver Lake, and I love Arkansas, but Colorado feels like home to me. And we all know there's no place like home!
My trip last week was good. I was glad I was able to spend some time with my dad. But it was also a hard trip and I felt a heaviness the entire time I was there. My dad really isn't doing well and I returned home emotionally spent. I'm still processing my trip. Maybe I'll be able to share some of that soon. If you've been praying for him, please continue. He can certainly use your prayers!
So, while I was in AR last week I read three books.
I finished this one (and I don't know if I'll ever hike again!), I laughed my way through this one (seriously ya'll, it was f-u-n-n-y!), and I sobbed through the second half of this one. I am a big library girl and I rarely buy books but I picked that last one up to read on my flight(s) home. I had to literally close the book to keep from sobbing on the plane (and scaring my seatmates) a couple of times. It was very good. I recommend it, but I also recommend you keep tissues handy. (Of course, it's very likely that the week with my dad heavily influenced my tears).
I now find myself in need of something new to read. It MUST be something light and fluffy with no mention of the dreaded "c" word, the "c" word being cancer. Any suggestions??? I'm not picky about books but I generally avoid non-fiction. (And I feel weird saying that having read three non-fiction books last week.)
I'd love to stay and chat (and get caught up on all of your blogs this morning) but I'm off to hang with some kiddos at Crocodile Dock. I think it's going to be super fun!
