My Nest . . .

Yesterday was such a strange but OK day. DH (dear husband) went up to another state to visit his dad who had successful outpatient surgery. DH took with him DD who went to spend a few days with her best friend and her family. DS 1 and 2 went to Six Flags with their friends. I taught my class early in the morning, went to the grocery store and came home to a house that was way too quiet. But my best friends brought me supper (delicious home-style food from a local restaurant). My Uncle Ray called and we talked for a long time--probably the best conversation we have had in many years. I got some grading done for my online class and did lots of laundry. I missed everyone but had a good day and a really different kind of day.

The boys came in about 10:30, having  had the time of their lives. I am so pleased they were able to do this. DD made it to her friend's house and they have done the girly things, painting toenails and making funny videos singing Elvis songs (yes, Elvis songs). I copied their toenail masterpiece below.  DH had some good visiting time with his family and will have a nice breakfast with his sisters today before coming home. I just remembered that today would have been their mother's 80th birthday. I know that she would be overjoyed at her children being together this day.

Looking forward to having all my chicks back under one roof and DH back on his side of the bed, but grateful to the Lord for His blessings yesterday.
