We Should See Mikey Today....

This was the first week since he moved out
that Mikey has stayed away all week.
The weather had some role to play in that
but I also think he is getting more comfortable
there and is making some friends.
That is a good thing.

I am excited at the prospect of seeing him
today, though.  I'll bet the first thing he does
is toss his dirty clothes bag at me and grin.
He has a washer and dryer at the house.
We got him laundry detergent too....
at his request.  
But, at this point I don't mind.
It is something I can still do for him.

That, and I think by now
he will be ready for a haircut!

He'll be at least this happy to see us...oh wait~that was supposed to be fear.
I think we might go into the city this morning
to visit our friends the Rabe girls.  
They are running our friend, Denny's, shop
while he is away with a family emergency.
I think our trip into the city might involve
breakfast and a bit of shopping at Central Market.
It shouldn't be as crowded today.
I need to get some photos for you to see from 
our trip.  That means I must get batteries for the 
camera.  It is OUT of juice!

Have I mentioned that I love Lancaster County?
Oh, I do. 
When I stand at the doorway in the morning,
early, so the dogs can do "their thing" and I 
listen to the birds chirp, see the farmland across the
way, breathe in the country air....I am so very thankful
for our blessings.  
We may not be rich in the eyes of 
man, but we are 
so very blessed with family, surroundings,
home and heart.  

God has been very, very good to us!
I praise Him!

I agree Lanc Co is beautiful, especially with the snow. :) Funny about Mikey tossing his dirty clothes basket at you.....I used to do that when I came home from college. :)
Enjoy your time at Central Market. :)

You're a good mama Becky - encouraging your son to stretch his wings, but willing to do the laundry (: Thanks for stopping by ~ it's always fun to wake up to friendly comments. And I'm feelin' pretty blessed myself xo

Enjoy your visits! My son comes home every weekend with his dirty laundry :-) He works up at a camp in the mountains all week. He does do it himself though, so I can't complain :-)
Have a blessed Sunday!
Blessings,
