I opened an email that contained pictures the other day and one picture in particular rocked me to the core.  I kept staring at it and staring at it...and probably would have stared the day away if my phone hadn't rung.

It was my sister in law calling and within 10 minutes, I was out the door and on my way to the train.

I have fallen in love with taking the makes me feel like I am in Europe.  Almost, anyway.  I am a quiet sitter on the train...the kind who stares out the window and watches the world rush by.  I don't read or write...I just sit.  And listen.

I hopped off the train and spent the rest of my day walking on the beach, eating greek salad, buying new flip flops and talking, talking, talking.

Talking about death.  Death of people we loved and the death of Jesus.  Peter and the guilt he must have felt after that rooster crowed a second time.  Why do we KEEP on sinning?? The fact that our kids are growing up and life is changing and how fun this new stage is, but sad too.  Food.  Always food... and where oh where can we find an oatmeal cookie?

After I was back on the train heading home, she sent me a text saying that her face hurt from laughing so much...and that we forgot to talk about the weather, but had covered just about everything else.

I love days like that and I am so ready to do it again.  Anyone want to take a train ride with me?


I was out and about early this morning.  I've been to the post office more in the last week than I have in years...though I discovered today that I can now do it all online (since they are all the same size/weight) and just drop the packages off.   I also went to IKEA for candles, Peets for coffee beans and picked up the dry cleaning.

Supper tonight will be roasted chicken with roasted veggies.  Brian has flag football this afternoon, but other than that, I think I am home the rest of the day.  I'm thinking laundry and a batch of oatmeal cookies...and maybe a little more of the Love Comes Softly movies that are tivo'd.  It's a chilly day today...the perfect day for nothing.



  1. You didn't know you can print post office labels and pay for them online? I do mine through paypal. I order free Priority Mail boxes, too. I tape the printed labels on, and just drop in the post office package bin (anytime of day or night).

  2. I didn't know that!!! Hmmm...I'm going to check it out now!

  3. You are a genius!!! =0) I just played around and it is not only easier, but cheaper to do it myself from home!!!! Glad I found this out now rather than later...thank you!
