Phew. The last week has been a blur with busy-ness. My last class was demanding of both my time and intellect. A challenge on both levels. Last week I had to do a paper on an analytical study of Hebrew poetry. Very interesting, intricate, beautiful but wowza a lot of work. Okay so I got that done and did well, thankfully.
Then my lovely Lilliana turned 16 on Saturday-oh my- we went to our family's in the late afternoon to celebrate and spent the next night. On Sunday we were having a five year memorial for my father. I got sick that morning and never made it out of my niece's bed till we drove the two hour trek home. At which time I went to bed for the rest of the evening. Okay that was rough but to make matters worse I had a 5 page paper due on Monday and an 8 minute oral presentation, both of which I had planned to do Sunday afternoon. ( are you bored yet?)
Okay to make a long story short, I worked on Monday came home a spit out the paper and the presentation, drove the hour to school and lalalala, all done with that bugger of a class. PHEW what a week.
The picture is after a storm that came through, I would just love to climb into that pillowy goodness and rest.

We are getting reading for a long weekend camping trip. Remember in childhood when the waiting to go took sooooooooooooooooo long? Now as an adult the time that they spend waiting flies by for us as we hurry to get everything together. I look forward to perk coffee, the lake, fresh fish, hiking, discovering and camp fires. Not to mention spending time with family. I hope you all have a great weekend too!
