home


home. i like that word. just cause one loves travel doesn't mean that one doesn't love and enjoy coming home.
drove back from nc yesterday. mum and the kids drove up wednesday to drop off the "next generation" (mira & bre) and stay a day before dragging back the original generation.
fun times in the mountains. busy. doing what i'm not sure...certianly not working. the furnace no longer exists, so we didn't traipse off to carpentry/wood barns & collect scrap wood. no log splitting this year. past memories: finding treasures, splinters, inhaling sawdust, tossing around huge chunks of wood (that were really too heavy for us) country rides in pick-ups, cuts and bruises...those were fun, hard working summers.

damsta and beks (muahaha) had a crazy fun 2weeks. 60 degree mornings, a whole mountain to roam-what more could you ask? i should post 10 highlights or something. ya'll aren't interested. besides, my dad's editting a wedding behind my head. he's working with music the bride gave him. it's throwing me off track to hear keith urban, coldplay, and a most depressing not-love-song all in the same minute.
glad to see my fam. and sleep in my own bed. and see my grandpa's truck we have on loan. that i cant drive. :(. at least i can look...

2 funny things about being home: 1)can't believe how FLAT this peninsula is. Thank God He put me in the single hillish part of the whole state. :) 2)forget how humid it is...stepped out of the car at home and the heat slammed into me like a mac truck. gonna take some re-adjustment!
its good to be home.
i miss my little spunky. Bre is staying there for a week with Mira. her 1st time away from home with no family with her. i'm sure she'll have a blast. GP making her laugh and teasing her; Grammy taking care of them; and Tante Lisa providing fun times. It'll be 3 weeks of not seeing her by the time she's home. can i make it?

So is the picture of FL or NC?

I'm guessing it's NC.

Delian said...

Since there are like no mountains (or even hills) in FL I would say NC as well.

"and just why did you find us a bomb shelter in the fuel storage tent?" said...

HAHAHAHA.
wow. i guess you haven't been to fl.
that is most def taken in NC.

no pics of home. sorry.

ain't no redneck! said...

HEY!! there are too hills in fl, dell.

uuummm so they're more like bumps. but out here in clermont/sugar loaf we can get up to 65mph going down our "bumps" without touching the gas pedal. we even have a "7%" grade sign on a back street here...

i gotta take me some pics of my redneck town for ya'll.
maybe from a big truck...with mud on the "tiahre's". haha.

Elizabeth said...

ah. good stuff dams. i think you should come visit canada. we have hills, and mountains! alas. i continually suffer from wanderlust. not that it is a good thing, i am just being honest.

Josh Sczebel said...

good post.
thanks for caring.
(i'm not sure about what) just thanks.

joel sczebel said...

I definitely haven't been to FL yet.

But in october that streak will end.

just me. said...

the prospect of home...

Delian said...

sorry... i've been to FL... so I know there's no hills... it's all flat... with little slopes possibly here and there. It's still pretty. I like the sunrises.

joel sczebel said...

different pretty.

like aruba.

dami said...

yeah dell, i know. there are only hillish lumps in fl in the west-center of the state. for a few miles it's hillish. that's where i live. orlando, the coast & everywhere else is flat as a pancake.
flatter. if possible. haha
i'll take some pics of the not-hills for ya.

you're welcome josh. no idea what the hey you're talking about, but you're welcome anyway.

beks said...

FL isn't as flat as Illinois and places like that in the mid-west.

thinking of joining the crazy world of R.eally A.nnoying L.ame P.osting H.osers...

beks

ps. Dams, you didn't come in to see me today! and bring the pics! sadness...

joel sczebel said...

well sometimes pancakes have little bubbles....

als said...

Delian said...

yeah, it's pretty obvious. ;-)

joel sczebel said...

Delian said...

beks is right. Fl looks downright hilly compared to southern illinois.
