It’s a beautiful October morning. Sunday, I have the day off from work, and I’m going to enjoy it. Cool, crisp morning, beautiful foliage on the trees. Now if I only had some apple cider, nice and warm, w/a cinnamon stick, sit outside, with my music, my fanny on one chair, and my legs draped over the other chair. Just enjoying the day. Write a few passages in my journal, and maybe take a nap. I’d like for that to happen, but it’s highly unlikely that it will.
Tim will keep me busy with stuff, taking care of the bandages in his neck, and feeding the animals, taking the dog for a walk, and take care of AJ as well. I so wish we were back up in New England. I just miss it like crazy. Tim lets me go up there every so often to spend some time with my sister and attend the annual HAYNES GIRLS CHRISTMAS GET TOGETHER, that’s held every 1st Saturday in December. I went last year, and I went back in…..2012. I was going to go in 2011, but Sarah went to Hawaii that year, with the H.S. band for the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor Attack. I was so excited for her to go to that, that’s an awesome opportunity. I figured I would go the following year. Every time I’ve gone, which is at least twice, if not 3 times, I figured it would cure my homesickness for another year, but I think the opposite is true. It only strengthens it.
Ohio may be my residence at the present moment, but….New England is, has always been, and will always be my home. I was born there, I want to be there when I die. I miss everyone up there, family and friends alike. I plan to do a lot when I get up there. I can’t wait to take AJ to different places he’s never been. He’s been to the beach a couple of times, and up to Maine, but I’d like to show him other places. He LOVES everything about Christmas, I plan to take him to Santa’s village up in NH, Laconia I think, it’s been a long time since I’ve been there.
That’s all I’m going to say this morning, have a great day today.
