Yes, Dream Boy & I are spending a week away sitting on the sandy shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico.
I am so looking forward to it. Just a week away from reality - no schedules, no plans, just day by day - moment by moment.
This past weekend I ended up at the camera shop as both of my batteries decided to poop out on me at the same time. Weird, eh? I had them both just fully charged. When I put them in my camera - they showed a full bar. But the moment I took 4 or 5 shots, they dropped to one bar. BOTH of them. So I packed up the bag & headed into town with all my gear.....not really knowing if it was the batteries themselves, the camera or the charger. One battery is the original & is about 5 years old, the other is a back up that Dream Boy got me about a year after I got the camera. When I described the issue to the clerk he immediately said that it was the batteries. They normally have a life span of 2-3 years.
Well, while there, we decided to check out some new bodies.....an upgrade of sorts. Let's just say I got a little giddy looking at some of the newer technology. So, I'm doing some more research on the body of my dreams & thinking hard about this.......
Dream Boy & I then went to the "electric beach" to add some color to our bright & shiny faces so we don't burn out buns in the sun.
We came home & each curled up in front of the cozy fire & promptly took naps. Lovely.
Saturday night found us at our pastor's home for an evening of visiting & fellowship & dinner with other people from church. It was a wonderful time getting to know others on a more personal level that we haven't had the opportunity to do before.
Sunday morning we went to church & then helped serve spaghetti at our Valentine fundraising dinner.
I got to eat dinner with this little cutie:
Dream Boy & I visited with his parents & then came home. I went out for about a half hour to do some senior shots before it started raining, yes raining. Ugh.
Now it's time to head out for Monday morning prayer time and then off to school. Lots to do this week to prep my classroom & students before I leave. Fortunately next week is only 2 1/2 days of school, so I won't be out of my classroom for too long.
Here's to a great week wherever you may - if you're out east, I hope you are safe & warm & digging out from Nemo.
If you're in the south - I hope the storms that are sweeping through are not severe & you stay safe & dry.
May you be blessed this week wherever you are & feel loved by those that surround you!
Be back soon!
