I am back from Turkey, Texas. Population 500. There was dry heat, enough dust to collect between my flip flop free toes, and lots of two-named people to meet and love. (Two-named as in Mary Kate, Billy Bob, etc.) My husband’s sister’s husband preaches there and they were having a Youth Rally, so we packed up our two youngest teens and made our way west.
Isn’t it funny how being a place so unlike your own spurs your imagination and gets the creativity flowing? Everything I saw, felt, smelled, made me wonder if I could use it in a book. There were so many unique sights and experiences that I stored up for future reference.
I’m glad to be back home and I plan on doing absolutely nothing this week. It is my last week home before I start back to work and I want to take advantage of it! I hope to write blog posts to get me through much of August since I will be working 60-70 hours a week and won’t have much time for blogging…or writing.
I’m tired just thinking about it! But I won’t complain, because it is a job that allows me to supply insurance for my family. Yay! for insurance that you pay through the nose for and don’t ever use! (grrrr) But Yay! that we are that healthy!!!!
What are your plans for the week? Writing? Plotting? Playing? Napping?
