Home again, home again, jiggidy jig.
Well, we are home again. I am unpacked but still buried in laundry. I have to finish getting ready for the school year (YIKES) and get ready for more company, SO, I am not sure how much I'll be around. I have some interesting reflections to post, but as far as original content, I just can't predict.
The vacation was quite nice, lots of time to sit under an umbrella on the beach and read under a warm sun with cooling breezes. I am reading a book about Kansas Pioneer Women. I grew up in Kansas, and it is fascinating to see what was faced and conquered by these strong and brave people.
We encountered some wild life, most interestingly a bat that lived in the lodge. Every evening around 10:00pm, he'd come out and circle around the room a few times, then go back to his hiding place. Once he got knocked out because he flew into a moving ceiling fan. We got to see him close up then, and carefully took him outside, where he regained consciousness and flew away. Not an experience you have everyday, to be sure.
We did find out there is a nice, 24 hour emergency room in rural Indiana, as well as the fact that red streaks really do show up when there is an infection in a wound. One X-ray, 2 shots and a prescription for antibiotics later, my son's foot is almost good as new.
So, I'll be posting some photos this week, with a little commentary, and will try to visit you all, a few at a time. Hoping you are all well and happy!
**UPDATE** I left a comment for my commenters in the comment box =)
