my kentucky momma
My Kentucky momma is coming to visit for 2 weeks in February and we can't wait! She hasn't seen the boys in awhile so they will be much bigger to her and they'll think her much smaller:) I'll have to see if she can sneak some grits in her bag as I'm running low. When she's here it's like having a party - she's that much fun! The only problem will be trying not to go back to Kentucky with her when she leaves. It's pretty dull around here after she's gone - kind of like the post-Christmas letdown.
She loves to come out in the summer as our heat rarely climbs above 70 and the nights are cool and full of stars. We might have to buy her some rain boots this trip. By the time she returns to Berea spring will be right around the corner and her deck and all that redbud and dogwood will woo her away from us.
By the way, airfare is incredibly low right now so if you want to take a trip, now's the time.
It's Saturday here and I have absolutely nothing memorable to say. I've been reading Jan Karon's A Continual Feast and it's such a treasure! She's the author of The Mitford Series
with Father Tim and Cynthia and Dooley and the gang. If you haven't read them, run to your local library and check them all out. Then put up a do not disturb sign on your door and savor them like a box of Lindt chocolates.
Here's a quote or two from A Continual Feast...
'Tis the good reader that makes the good book. -Emerson
Where Christ is, cheerfulness will keep breaking in. -Dorothy Sayers
There is a sense in which God is at the tip of my pen, my spade, my brush, my needle - of my heart and of my thoughts. -de Chardin
