If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

It Doesn't Take Long

You know, it really doesn't take long when returning home from vacation for things to get back to like they were before you left. haha

For almost 3 weeks we lived in such sweet wonderfulness. We got up when we wanted. We slept when we wanted. We ate when we wanted. We sat on the balcony, walked on the beach, visited parks, spent time with his parents, shopped, read, crocheted (well I did), played on the computers. All when we wanted. And might I add, that is a wonderful way to live.

This is from Huntington State Park.  It's kind of a wildlife sanctuary

We visited Ripley's Aquarium and they had the Festival of Trees going on.  They had trees from all 50 states decorated.  Very pretty.

Even on an overcast day, it's still beautiful.

But (there's always a but) we got back home Saturday night and within about an hour we "had" to go to the grocery. There were a few more items that needed to be purchased for the Thanksgiving baskets for church (I'm really not complaining. I was glad to do it) and we needed a few things ourselves. Then church on Sunday (which again I'm not complaining, just stating facts to make my point). We had great services. We watched Carina Sunday afternoon (which was a lot of fun) so her momma could get moved into their new apartment.

Then Monday morning bright and early it was back to work. Let me tell you something, when you walk back into work after being off for 3 weeks...whew!...what a mess. But things went pretty well and I got most of it completed before I left. I must really say thank you to my co-workers who did so much of my work while I was gone. You guys are the best!

So, see back to my first sentence...it really doesn't take long for everything to get back to normal. lol

Hope you all have a great day. I plan to. Heading to the mechanics to drop off my car. The heat is not working right and it's just a little too cold around here to not have good heat in my car. Then off to day 2 of work.


  1. Just love your pics., Cathy! So happy you had such a fun time...even if getting back to reality is a tough pill to swallow. Have a Happy Thanksgiving! :)

  2. I can't even imagine having 3 weeks off... I'd never want to go back to work!!!

  3. What a nice long holiday! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Cathy!

  4. That was a long vacation yet no matter how long we have to return to life. ((HUGS)) I'm glad you had that time and the memories will always be in your heart and mind. Praying that is how your retirement is someday, that would be so awesome wouldn't it?
