Home Sweet Home Away From Home

Now that the kiddos are in bed for the night I am ready to post photos from our vacation to Georgia. So, grab your cup of late night de-caf herbal tea, and enjoy!

Bethany, Daniel and Zoe the Wonder Dog! Cool dog. When our aging dog Lady gets too barky, I kindly remind her that her possible replacement, Zoe, is not really that far away! Kidding of course!

Daniel warms up in from of Granddaddy Wright's wood burning stove. Just what a boy's childhood should be about.

Granddaddy and Grandmama Wright: Keepers of the Faith and the fire in the wood-burning stove! Dad and Stepmom to my beloved Danny. (Did I mention Grandmama Christine's amazing Potato Salad and Broccoli Cornbread????)

On our walk with Zoe the Wonder Dog, we found these amazing mushrooms growing on the trees. Since Martha Stewart was nowhere to be seen to help determine their usability, I just let them grow and said, "Wow, what an amazing Creator God we have!!!"

Father/Son Day on the Cushman as we roamed the beautiful Georgia Woods.


Well, what these photos don't show are that angels do laundry. Yes, they do. First of all, when your husband calls you a safe distance away from his office on the 2nd floor of your home to tell you that you're leaving in 30 minutes rather than in 5 hours as you had thought, you find yourself scrambling. There was a gigantic pile of laundry on the floor that I was planning on casually folding - a plan for another day I learn. Literally, I am going, "Okay, I need pj's for Daniel." I moved a couple of things, and there they were-top and bottom. "Okay, I need PJ's for Bethany now. " I move something and there they were - top and bottom together again! Folks, I'm pretty sure someone came down and did some serious sorting, 'cause in 30 minutes (remember now, my hair was wet, I was in pj's and not a stitch was packed,) we were on our way to the airport! I kindly expressed a quiet word to my courageous caller/husband that I would have rather done this another way! Seems that Pilot honey is used to crew scheduling making all the arrangements I guess, and well, they no longer had a 4 pm afternoon flight on Saturday. Oh, and then when we came home.....the angel otherwise known as Mary Lee had folded the laundry pile of all laundry piles which the invisible angel helped me sort on that memorable hurried day-gone South.

Sounds like such a wonderful time!
Yep, those angels sure do step in when times get crazy!

Kathy said...

We had a blast Brenda. Missed all you guys!

Susan said...

Loved seeing all the pictures and finally getting to "see" the BG. Yes, He meets our every need. We had a similar "hurry up NOW" departure like that years ago when our kiddo's were young. Sounds like a wonderful time.

You came my way!
The GA woods are wonderful unless they have that crazy wandering thro it.Remember him a gary something

Gina Stinson said...

Looks like you guys had a great time! I love everything Georgia!

Kathy said...

It was beautiful. The kids really love it there, and of course being within play-distance of their cousin meant so much to them.

Mary Lee said...

So, in about 3 years or so when you decide to actually move there, I will go with you...really.

Kathy said...

Mary're such a blessing.

Love that "laundry angel" story. And what a great friend of Mary Lee to come fold all that laundry while you were gone! Those pics of GA look sooo inviting. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law live in GA and hubs & I have wanted to go visit them for several years, but haven't been able to make it there yet. Your pics of the woods make me want to go there more than ever.
O, and Broccoli Cornbread? Wow, does that ever sound yummo. Do you have the recipe? And could you post it sometime?
Welcome home and I hope you have a great weekend.
Brenda (the other one)

Kathy said...

I'll send the request for the broccoli/c.bread. I too should have it on hand. So good to hear from you Brenda 2. : )

Hi Kathy,
You were in MY neck of the woods! Isn't Georgia beautiful? I have only been living here for a short time - haven't been able to explore too much yet. You picked perfect time to go and explore the great outdoors though - before all of the mosquitoes come back to torment! :-)
Blessings on your day,

Yes, those Georgia Mosquitos are pretty persistant! : ) That is one of the nice things about the Arizona desert. Mosquitos get fried at 115 degrees!!!
