A day off...

We were thinking back to the last Chemo treatment in Houston and remembering the time we had visiting our hosts at their lovely lake house. We enjoyed beautiful Lake Livingston, located near Houston. In a word- PEACEFUL.

It’s always nice to sleep a little late, & visit with wonderful, giving people. Not just generous- but opening their home so we can have the little bit of “ normal “ we long for as we are away from our own home. We spent the afternoon listening to perfect music while we cooked and then finished off the day making the most delicious homemade ice cream... ( recipe to follow )  I think maybe the best I have eaten since I was a kid.

Theres nothing better than watching the peaceful view and letting grace wash over you. Gearing up for the coming week, yes, but now just a little sweeter, slower thinking as we prepare to return back home. Thank you to those angels
here on earth...

Hope you plan to take a day off soon.  You ready for 

that ice cream recipe ?  Here you go... enjoy.
