I'll Just Grab A Minute Here

While the baby is going down for his nap...

I'm loving Victoria.

What's not to love?!

No mosquitoes...

Sunshine and cool breezes...



9 month old baby cuddles and laughs...

I can honestly say, "Having a great time, wish you were here".

And this weekend, the kids are all off to the Junior High youth retreat in Alberta, (Micah to retreat, Thomas to help and Hillary to chaperone) so there will be no "Where is the...?" or "How do I...?" phone calls to anticipate.

Having the kids away also means I can feel a little less guilty about leaving The Man single parenting. I'm hoping he has a bit of a restful weekend too, with the kids gone.

So- contrary to popular misconception, there has been no frolicking on nude beaches;

Only a relaxed rhythm to the days that is soothing and refreshing.

I think my Spirit is catching up to my body for the first time in many months.


  1. Lauralea, you make me laugh. :)

    I'm disappointed you haven't had the pleasure of frolicking on any nude beaches.

    Glad you're having a getaway in Vancouver--you deserve it.

    Btw, is your sis in law, Robyn, still alive? HAven't heard from her in ages, and she's not updated her blog since April 16. Kinda worried.

  2. Glad you're having a great time. Home Sunday?

    THE MAN is coming over for a barby soon....we hate to see a starving pastor.......even if he says he's not hungry!

    Have a safe trip. See you soon.
