All I need...

We spent the weekend "decking the halls" so all our Christmas decorations would be up when we get back, and I spent yesterday cooking turkey and baking. It's all ready and here we go!

Here's where we'll be this week:



And here's what I'll be doing. (That's the back of my head sitting in front of a wonderful campfire that my sweet husband builds for me each day, where I sit, read, and relax...

If you've ever seen "The Jerk," and remember that scene "All I need..." that's what I'm doing this morning. (Well, not the drinking and paying bills part. And I'm not in a bathrobe. Anyway...) It's one thing to pack for a trip. It's quite another thing for your "hotel room" to be parked right by your house where you can just cart it all out there. I take a few things out. Then I see something else and grab that. Oh! And I might want to read this book. And I'll probably want to wear that. I'm sure we'll want to snack on this. Wouldn't this be fun to have along?...

I'm SO thankful for this time away with just the four of us. I'm SO thankful for our dear, generous friends who offered us their RV. It was such a treat last year, and they were so kind to offer it to us again this year. Now I fancy myself some sort of "RV-er" and this year I'm ready with Christmas lights and a little turkey windsock for the awning. You know, so we can look like the neighbors. It'll be cute. (My classy friend who owns the RV is rolling her eyes, I just know it!)


If you're reading this today, know that I'm thankful for you, and that you're being prayed for.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving! See you in a week!
