On Thursday, things were very stressful in our world. Although things were considerably looking up by Friday, we were still feeling the stress. John and I decided that floating down a river would be a great stress reliever.
So, we went to Ichetucknee Springs. We pitched our tent at the campsite, rented our tubes, and commenced to floating. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We saw fish, of course; turtles; and two wild hogs!
Once we got back to camp, a storm came. Not just an ordinary Florida summer storm...a torrential downpour. But it was all good, because the campground has a tavern, with two gamerooms. I actually beat John at Air Hockey! Well, the first time anyway. We won't discuss the other two times. I may or may not have gotten my drink on at the tavern. Let's just say that a drink called Orange Dream tastes exactly like Orange Dreamsicles. OMWord.
Fortunately, they also serve food, since grilling was not an option. And we were very lucky to only have a tiny amount of water in our tent; some peoples' tents flooded. It turned out to be a great night!
Now we're back to reality, but refreshed and with a better outlook. The kids are home too, which makes me a happy Mama.
Don't forget today is Meatless/Meat Free Monday! We are having pizza because I don't feel like cooking. Meatless pizza, of course! And I am at day 10 of eating no meat. So far, so good!
One of my blog friends, Jesica, is battling cancer and got some very bad news last week. I can't even begin to imagine what she and her family are going through. Please visit her, offer support, and prayers, good thoughts, whatever you have to offer. Jesica's Journey
