homeward bound

We have begun packing. How will we get all this stuff back in the van, I have no idea. This great trip is coming to an end and while we do not want to get back to work, normal routine will be nice.
I am looking forward to these activities that I find therapeutic:
hanging laundry on the line
preparing a schedule for fall
baking bread
my laundry room
cleaning out the chicken coop
working with the baby goat(so we will be able to milk)
watering flowers
contemplating a fall garden
While these activities seem so ordinary, they are the ones that bring me much joy and fulfillment.
Travel day is set for Saturday.
Packing must go on.

Packing is drudgery, I'll agree.

Just Philippians 4:8 it...

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Instantly, you'll be transformed into a power-packin' mama!

The children and their papa will see a smile on mama's face and hear a song in the air.

Travel mercies for tomorrow.
